When I was a child I was really skinny. Got bigger in middle school and early high school. Lost about 20 pounds in a few months junior year. Kept losing after that until the middle of my first college year. Gaining and losing in this never-ending battle right now. People still say I'm really skinny. Boyfriend says I'm perfect. I don't see it.  -_-

I was really underweight until I was 15 when I became depressed and withdrawn, would literally spend my pocket money on chocolate and ice cream and stopped doing sports. Apparently I was at risk of becoming overweight-overweight and now I am 2st lighter but still have my fat days

I was 88-90 pounds ages 13 and 14.  I was diagnosed with anorexia at age 12.  Hospitalized 3 times ages 12,13,14, including being tube fed.  I know I didn't really had anorexia. 


108 pounds ages 18 and 19. 


I began weightlifting at age 14, but didn't realize I wasn't eater enough to really gain much size.

My bmi was 16 when I was a teen. I didn't have ana though, I just had no control over what I was allowed to eat.
It's my goal to get back to that size. Or maybe even smaller.

Up until about junior year of highschool I was really, really skinny and then I was just slim. I've had digestive issues (inflammatory bowel disease) since I was around 12, so overeating = excruciating pain and gas. That doesn't always stop me anymore though.

Nope, I was fat and didn't even really realise it! I thought I was just a bit chubby, and my mum encouraged that idea by telling me that it was in my genetics to be a bit plump, so I figured I was fine and didn't have a choice anyway. I was a skinny kid though, and I have skinny wrists, so it's definitely within my control! (I read somewhere about measuring your wrist size among other things to work out your frame or something?!) Can't believe I wasted my teenage years being fat!

I was always effortlessly underweight, which contributed to my eating disorder immensely. Being on the low end of a healthy BMI is the worst thing that has ever happened to me.

I never got to know what my teenage body would naturally look like bc I've had an ED since 10/11. Both anorexia and bulimia with both low weights up to a bmi of 22,5.


I always was a rather skinny child though.

I was a normal weight (although of course I thought I was horribly fat).

I'm the opposite to most people here.. Fat kid, as in obese. Then stopped eating breakfast at 12 and lunch at 13 and it was effortless to slim down to underweight. Didn't know it was anorexia and was able to bullshit my way through high school. Haven't had a BMI over 19 since I was 13

I spent this year as a ghost. ___________________________________

Lean-ish most of the time, but never ever defined until now.
