Something Fishy Eating Disorder Site
This is a personal site, but one of such scope, smarts and originality, it merits listing as a resource- and a very important resource at that. Something Fishy includes signs & symptoms of ED's, what you can do, physical dangers, a memorial page, suggestions for loved ones, a treatment finder feature, research resources- pretty much any aspect of self-harming through food that you can think of, really. One of In Bloom's Spotlite Sites and absolutely worthy of bookmarking.

Love Your Body
An awesome site from the National Organization for Women's NOW Foundation. "Hollywood and the fashion, cosmetics and diet industries work hard to make each of us believe that our bodies are unacceptable and need constant improvement. Print ads and television commercials reduce us to body parts airbrushed and touched up to meet impossible standards. TV shows tell women and teenage girls that cosmetic surgery is good for self-esteem. Is it any wonder that 80% oUS. women are dissatisfied with their appearance?"
