Story 656

I developed unhealthy habits around food because of fat-shaming. My parents pushed me to start dieting, start tracking my foods, and my friends would laugh at fat jokes. I lost weight by purging, fasting, and picked up binge and purge cycle. People would ask tips on my weight loss journey, even guys approached me too for this, as if my weight loss is the most interesting part of me. I still have a bad relationship with food. Fat-shaming, even subtly, can permanently damaged someone. I couldn't look at food the same way ever again.
