7, i was already an emotional eater because of mental illness and i felt fat so i would draw lines on my stomach like plastic surgeons do and try to cut my stomach and thigh fat off with scissors and would throw out food. had a stash of “ana” diets, quotes, and workouts saved in a secret folder on my laptop by 9 years old :)))

12, I was chubby but not overweight, but I knew nothing about losing weight then and I just spent the year losing and gaining until i became overweight at age 13, and from there I learned more and successfully lost some weight that I could keep off
From age 16 until now (I'm 19) I am just miserably fluctuating between a bmi of 19 and 22

I think I was about 12 or so. It really sucks that so many of us started so young. :(

8. I kept a diary with all the foods I would allow myself to eat and what I should be avoiding.

my first memory of feeling too big was aged 7. I didn't try dieting until I was about 11 or 12 though.

I think like 13 or 14 when puberty started since I was a really skinny kid but gained a bit around that time because of puberty, then 15 is when I think I started developing an ed. And it went downhill from there up until like 3 years ago (when I was like 19/20), and I mostly recovered for a while and gained weight, and now I’m back with a relapse trying to lose again lol.

Hmm.. I think I was first aware of my desire to be skinnier when I was 6 or 7? (at which point I was not even close to fat)
And then I remember vividly trying so hard to lose weight when I was 10... 
And the story goes on..

I found a little journal from when I was 11. I had wrote my height and weight, and goals for my body. At 12 I remember going on a "carrot and pretzel stick" diet with my friend. Interesting because I didn't develop a full blown ED until later in my teens.
