Hey, ya’ll. These past couple of days and the coming ones have provided me with ample amounts of schoolwork to manage, so I haven’t the energy to devote to a full post today. I do, however, want to share a number of resources in (belated) observation of National Eating Disorders Awareness Week 2015, which took place last week from February 22 to 28. If you’re interested, you can check out this post about why this issue is near and dear to my heart.
First, two videos that I found to be inspiring and helpful in fostering a healthy, ongoing recovery process:

And, because the face of eating disorder awareness is a white, upper-middle-class woman, I want to pass along a couple of resources that speak to the eating-related struggles that women of color face, as well.
