Jessica Weiner - Looking for Women to Interview....

Have you heard of Jessica Weiner? I have not read any of her books (yet) but I've seen her on a few talk shows and while I don't necessarily think she is a Christian, I do appreciate her passion for transforming the self esteem of women and girls worldwide. She says:
Once you appreciate and accept yourself, then you are on your way to feeling good about your life and your relationships. I am dedicated to making a new space in the world for teens and women – a space where we can all exist and raise our voices and feel empowered.

I just got this bulletin from Jess' myspace

Do you have an Eating Disorder but nobody seems to have noticed?
Are you having trouble getting treatment because you don’t appear ‘sick’?
If this sounds like you or someone you know, please help me write a powerful story for a national women’s magazine.

I am looking for brave women ages 21 – 45 who have struggled with eating disorders in the past or are currently struggling with Anorexia, Bulimia, EDNOS or Bing Eating disorder. This article will be a positive, proactive approach to sharing with the world that eating disorders come in all shapes, sizes, races, and ages.

I welcome women with a diverse range of body types, stories, and less obvious signs of eating disorder behavior to share their stories and raise awareness of the many women whose suffering goes unnoticed or untreated.

Please Email with the following information:

Phone number
A paragraph or two about your eating disorder history,
any treatment, and why people may not have known you were sick.

I will keep your personal information in confidence BUT you must be willing to have your name and photograph used in the article, should you be selected.

I will need to find a variety of stories, so please spread the word and send this message to a friend!
