Story 684

Growing up I endlessly heard “wow your wrist is so thin I can wrap my thumb and finger around it”, “you’re so thin I could snap you” and even people asking if I had an eating disorder. Then you’d see a magazine cover saying a celebrity ONLY weighed ‘x’ and saying she looked ill etc and I’d think “but I weigh even less”. I hated my body and spent my teen years on all sorts of high calorie diets to try and put on weight and avoided exercise. All that did was encourage unhealthy habits. I now treat my body well and focus on health and not what the scales say but it was a long, long journey to get here!
