article on reasons why eating disorders impact ones life

Bryannarichardson's curator insight, February 27, 2014 11:57 AM

This is why girls change the way they look is because women are critical about their size. Girls have to help themselves and not let this stuff get to them.

Michael Johnson's curator insight, February 27, 2014 3:21 PM
