12/13. Was a chubby kid due to comfort eating and food generally being the only way I knew how to regulate emotions, at that point the bullies and my own self awareness came to a head and I started trying to eat healthier, but did it in a completely ignorant way. 14 when I started fasting/restricting and over exercising... here we are,way too many years later

Well, my ED started when I was fourteen, but it had absolutely nothing to do with weight for years. I didn't even own a scale until a few years ago. So I guess I actively started trying to lose weight at around 2010 or 2011. The years are starting to blur together. . .


I have before - I will again.

 

The scale doesn't lie - people do

I've been terrified of gaining weight though since I was probably about 8. I started "trying" to lose weight at 12/13. I didn't succeed in losing any weight until I was around 15 though.
