We are having an impact! Michelle Obama talks about eating disorders and health

Quotes from Michelle Obama in a CBS News report

"The flip side to obesity can be eating disorders and we certainly don't want to enforce the reverse trend," she said. "The campaign 'Let's Move' is not about how our kids look. It's really about how our kids feel and our health."

She advised parents not to talk specifically about weight loss, but rather to make their focus "an overall health picture."

The many advocates who care about eating disorders, weight-related stigma, and health at every size have had an impact - as we see from this shift in the First Lady's message. Way to go! Keep speaking up!

YAY! Oh this makes me so happy. It's just a small step but every small step is HUGE (and is the sum of a million smaller steps, in my opinion)
