For those of you who have seen Dove's "Evolution" video on youtube (it also won an advertising award), Dove recently released a new video regarding body image and the media. It can be found here - http://youtube.com/watch?v=JaH4y6ZjSfE - or below:
I have been speaking to God a lot lately about this eating disorder issue, and God told me to speak with Karen, the therapist. God told me that Karen was going to be the one that would help me recover. I explained to her my fears, and she said that she would work with me as long as necessary and won't give up on me. I have only been at a healthy weight for 6 weeks, and I'm backsliding again. She is a therapist I can afford that has appointments that work with my work schedule.
I know that this will work out. I feel so much peace about making the decision to have her as my therapist. I know I will recover. It will be a lot of hard work, but I will recover. I have no doubts, no fears, I want to get over this and live life and go out into the world and achieve all my dreams. I am so excited about this. I know she will help me. God led me to her. I know I will beat this.
I am ready to leave this behind.
There is no turning back this time.
It's time to say goodbye to my eating disorder.
This is it.
I am beautiful, strong, and amazing.
I will win this battle.
I will make it.
I will recover.
I feel so much light, peace, strength, and happiness.

I don't know if this is ok for ed_ucate, but I have been posting and commenting for awhile and wanted to share how excited and happy I am about meeting with this therapist and starting recovery and this time completing it. Have faith. Never give up. Good luck to all of you on your recovery journey wherever you are. I pray for each one of you. God bless you, I wish you all peace, love, and happiness.
peace & love,
