When I realized how fat I was at 12 almost 13, like 170 lbs , by 14 I was down 50. I would say that year I started being more aware.

When I was 21 and my boyfriend broke up with me because he said I had gotten too fat. I never cared about my weight until then.

I remember feeling fat and tying belts around my stomach to try and look thinner, when I was around 8-9, but I didn't activaly tro to lose weight before I was around 12 I think, but I tried to do it in a "healthy" way, by eating somewhat healthy and exercising, my ed restricting didn't begin until I was around 14

I remember one time when I was maybe 13 or something, I was on a specific forum a lot. Most of the people there were older & they were really nice to me because I was a fool & actively talked about being 13 all the time lol.

Anyway, I was complaining about how hungry I was because I was trying to lose weight & asked about how other people managed to do it. This was probably the first time I ever tried to lose weight. Everyone was like "girl forget abput dieting!", and one of the older members privately DM'ed me & scared the shit out of me (in a polite, friendly way) with her life story about anorexia. It seriously freaked me out & I didn't actively try to lose weight again until I was around 20. I feel like the inevitable kinda got delayed, but I'm glad that person messaged 13 year old me lol.

Hoo boy... I can't even remember. I feel like it's been most of my life. Especially when I was around 7-8, when I was practicing for soccer and realized how fat I was compared to the other girls on my team. I think it went downhill after that.

10, although I didn’t actually succeed until I was 15 and got a bit more control over my diet. My relationship with food has always been bad though, mostly because my parents also have a shitty relationship with food.

I think I started feeling insecure about my appearance when I was around 9. Started counting calories, tracking what I ate and obsessing over my weight when I was 11. I was at my worst right before I turned 12. It's been a few years and I'm better now, but my body image and relationship with food still aren't exactly healthy.

I know when I was in primary school I already thought I was too much because my mother told me I got stretch marks because of my fat. 

In reality I was just a tall 9 year old girl. Not fat at all. 

The moment where she told me to show her my thighs after a swim competition... she just told me I should stop eat so much candies. 

I will never forget this.. after this my relationship to food got really bad and had more and more binges. 

 

At the age of 12-13 years I didnt liked myself but I never lost that much weight. I was just big. 

When I was in a psychiatric hospital for 6 months (because of depression) there where girls with eating disorders. 

They triggered me so much and I just ate less.

This was the first and last time in my life I was successful by loosing weight.

First time I was 8 but I didn't think about changing my diet, I just started exercising.

"exercising" as an 8yo would

after my cousing made a comment about my body (it wasn't in a fat shaming way because I've always been a skinny kid)
