  37. 37. CLASS ACTIVITY The ANAD pledge (together) ANAD Pledge cards
  38. 38. The ANAD Pledge I will accept myself as I am. My uniqueness is a badge of honor, something to be proud of. There is no one in the world quite like me and I will strive to develop my special skills and abilities. I will accept others as they are. Each person is special and different. I will to try to learn from these differences rather than be critical of them. I will support diversity and freedom of expression in the way people think, look and live. There is no single standard of “rightness,” rather we live in a world of individuals, each of whom provides a different answer. Through our differences humanity continues to evolve. I will not tolerate physical or mental abuse. There is NEVER a reason for people to hurt other people and I will do my utmost to prevent such abuse. We are all equal and deserve the same thoughtful consideration. I will actively work to change media programming and advertising that exploits or demeans the human body. Setting standards of physical “perfection” is harmful to everybody. The media needs to understand that real human beauty lies in our differences, not our similarities. I will work to improve the lives of individuals, communities and the environment. As a responsible member of society, I understand that the more good I do for the people and places around me, the better off everyone will be. We need to think not only of today, but of tomorrow and our children’s future. I will support good health through proper nutrition, regular exercise and adequate sleep. Good health enables us to achieve success in life— at work, at home and in our personal relationships.

  43. 43. The bottom line! Eating disorders are horrible illnesses and can cause many long term effects on a person suffering from them. As illnesses they are deadly and not only effect the person but their loved ones as well. We, as a society need to wake up and see that real beauty is all around us and are in regular people not just supermodels. We need to be aware that people with eating disorders are all around us and we need to help when we can and support a positive body image for everyone!
