Jenni Schafer named NEDA Ambassador

Kudos to Jenni Schaefer! Earth Tiimes, a new site which reports press releases, announced that Jenni Schaefer has been named a National Eating Disorder Association Ambassador .

If you're not aware of Jenni Schaefer, she is the author of
Life Without ED: how one woman declared independence from her eating disorder and how you can to. She joins the likes of other ambassadors, including Jessica Weiner, Emme, Paula Abdul, and several others. Quite frankly, I'm surprised it took them this long to name her. She's done a lot for awareness of eating disorders and her story has touched many people.

I read her book a few years ago and did find parts of it helpful. I think there is something for anyone in the book even if you don't agree with everything Jenni may say. She uses some good analogies as well to explain eating disorders, perceptions, etc. She also gives good recovery advice in a simple, effective manner. Jenni also has a recovery support blog through the gurze website.
