Like 9. My idea of weight loss was eating yogurt with a banana instead of bread for breakfast and skipping dinner/not eating late (but otherwise not really changing anything about my eating habits, vegetables would make me gag) and doing sit ups. And I would give up after three days because I got no results. But still, kind of sad to think about. I felt so fat.

Oh dang I've never thought about it. I was bullied for being "fat" as early as 5th grade, but most of my childhood memories are repressed. Best guess is 11, definitely by the time I hit 6th grade.

Had disordered eating my whole life. Because ASD makes me weird that way.
But I didn't start to actively want to lose weight until 17. Now I'm 25 and it's just getting worse.

10...used to workout a bunch.
I'd do lunges... And i remember doing them wrong and it would hurt.
I remember trying to become vegetarian... Or going on long walks...
Yeah hh sad. I had such a sad and insecure childhood where i was constantly reminded that I couldn't wear things because I was just "bigger".

At 12 I tried to "diet" I remember I made a calendar and for each day I didn't eat anything sugary I put a smiley face on it, but at that age I had no idea how weight loss worked really. At 13-14 though I seriously started losing weight

13-14. I remeber always thinking I was fat (which I was) but whenever I told my mum I wanted to lose weight she'd just say "I promise I'll tell you when you need to lose weight but right now you don't". 

Just one of many places my lack of trust in people comes from haha

I think 8. I used to work out when i was younger since i was bullied for my looks and quietness a lot. I was chubby but mostly baby-fat chubby and id see ads on tv about losing weight and i wanted to be fit and skinny like the people i saw on those ads. I'd call myself fat and my mom would get mad and say im not. Of course, when i was 12, food became an unhealthy coping mechanism. 14 i learned the value of regular exercise and 17 is when i started starving myself to lose weight becausw i gained so much after getting out of and jumping right into another abusive relationship. I went from 185lbs to 135lbs by the time i was 18 and i recovered and relapsed many times since then.

I'm 22 now.. turning 23 in June, and I'm 125 lbs now

probably 12-13, I was over weight for most of my childhood then I skipped lunches and got into volleyball then fasted for long periods with workouts, surviving on crackers, green tea and lax whenever I ate anything. lost 10 kgs, people started noticing me, everyone was really really happy and were really nice to me. fast forward to 16, 17 I moved away, started binging cause no more attention (wah wah), then started purging around early November 2019 and here we are now

Fourth grade. My Dad had a super skinny fiancé and she put me on a diet. I hated it.
