Pretty old really. 17ish. I had a particular strong bout of anxiety and depression..lost 20lbs on accident... then something clicked. I had never even realized one could lose weight when they are a healthy size.

( grew up really sheltered, private Baptist school)

i kinda wanna say middle school, but it was mostly a blur, so i’d say freshman year of highschool, age 14 my earliest memory was my ex at the time was questioning me why i wasn’t eating breakfast (or lunch?) at school.

8/9 when i started ballet and had to stare at my body in a leotard for hours on end, trying to suck in my stomach like my teachers said and being so unhappy that it wouldn't go as flat as i wanted. yeah that feeling never went away

Well I stopped having breakfast around age 9, but that was out of laziness to make it before school, I dropped a lot of weight in 6 weeks before I started secondary at age 11 and wanted to lose more, I stopped having full school lunches at 12 and just had a bag of crisps and by 13 I just didnt have it at all. I also stopped sugary drinks and started working out, by 14 I was trying to skip tea sometimes when I could, lowered whatever I could on my plate, worked out even more and started counting calories, I had a purge phase when I was 14, slightly recovered for about 2 months then went back to restricting and counting 10x worse than before, never went back to purging tho. 15 was my ultimate ED time, full on exercises till it hurt, no snacks, no fizzy drinks, cut out tons of sugar from cups of tea, refused large quantities of food for dinner etc. I dont really remember a time when I used to eat 3 meals a day tbh

12? But it wasn't my body I was unhappy with, it was my numbers compared to all the other skinny girls in gym class.

18yo. Had gained to high end of healthy for the first time in my life. Lost it with a physically demanding job and exercise.
Then, in college if I felt my pants tight at all it would freak me out and suddenly I’m pounding water and having 1 yogurt a day. Didn’t really know what I was doing but it just progressed from there, started watching thinspo , found this website, and here I still am.
Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

I had half-hearted attempts at trying to lose weight starting around 7-8 (can't remember exactly, I just have an estimate based off of where I was living for certain memories). I remember trying (and failing) to exercise to lose weight. But it didn't really get serious until around 11-13
