I was diagnosed as anorexic in high school. It was due to my BMI and weight, not anything to do with my self-body image or illnesses.
This is such a misunderstood issue, that it isn't even funny. I'm am 5' tall and weighed 73 lbs at high schoo graduation. I had no body fat, just
muscle from being a tiny gymnast.
Now, at 35, I have a 7 year old son, I'm still 5' tall and weigh in around 86 lbs. Is this unhealthy? Not for my bone density and body frame.
It's all a matter of the person's structure.
At this point in time, Yes, I do have some issues with feeling a bit overweight, but that's because I'm getting used to being older and a mom.
I'll survive, and I will go on to help my family through the years. I do tend to eat every day or 3, but only when I'm hungry, and I'm quite a
picky eater. I don't just devour whatever is in the cabinets with wreckless abandonment. I live with overweight people and their eating habits just
discust me. I eat to live, not live to eat, maybe that's what the difference is.
Just an anorexic's side for you to think about.....
