I was 8.
Kids at school would call me fat and weird and my mom was worried about my brothers weight at the time (he was fat for his age and eating quite a lot)

But I remember telling my mom if he is fat and people are calling me fat then obviously I should start losing weight.

It's kind of fucked how this stuff happens when we're so young. Like to clarify I was not fat. I had chubby baby cheeks but in no way was I fat. Which looking back is such a mind fuck.

My mom had been putting me and my sister on diets off and on since I was like 7 years old. So yeah...

 

This is probably the reasoning I go from binging and purging to restricting and starving.


Eat for the body you want. And not, for the body you have.

9-10. I did need to lose weight as I was very overweight. I just wish someone had taught me how to do it properly.

When I was 7 years old, I became aware of my body, and I became obsessed by being thin.

I wanted to be as thin as possible but I didn't know how to reach that. Now we have internet... but when I was 7 years old, I didn't have internet or so and I was very lonely in my thoughts of losing weight and wanted to be thinner and thinner.

It started when I was 7 years old, and I'm 30 years old now.
