This week is National Eating Disorder Awareness Week! As you guys know, I was diagnosed with anorexia nervosa when I was 14. I was 'recovered' by 16, and body positive by 21, but there are so many things I've learnt about EDs, even my own, in the last year alone. So I thought I'd take this opportunity to tear down some myths, to reassure some of my fellow warriors, and spread some truth. And if you'd like to read more about my personal journey, you can do that here!

Last week I was listening to the radio, and I heard an advert that caught my attention. It was talking about bringing the joy back into exercising, about eating delicious foods and living a happy, active life. Great! I thought, finally a company more concerned about making people feel good than making them drop dress sizes! My bubble was burst a few seconds later when the advert was revealed as the latest Weight Watchers lure, using self love as a marketing ploy.
