I follow loads of people on Insta who are incredibly skinny and I always wonder if it’s natural or if they secretly have an eating disorder. I wonder this about people I see on the street too, I’ll walk past someone super skinny and I always wonder if they have an eating disorder.

Same, I feel I can always tell. I am convinced xD

The way she poses gives off subtle ED vibes to me.
Like this photo. I feel like "normal" people wouldn't post a pic of themselves with their ribcage on display? They would probably think prominent ribs look weird, no?
5afa165626f7b5ece3c795a46aa59cb91595d0a0

But I don't want to accuse her of having an ED because of course I have no way of knowing for sure.
Plus, she has photos on her IG that were posted as far back as 2012, and it looks like she's always been on the slimmer side, and she used to be (or still is? Idk) a runner, so maybe she is just naturally skinny. Who knows.


I’m quoting this for the picture but I’m not sure if it will show up because I’m on my phone.

Those ribs look like it can’t be just naturally skinny, but I don’t know her health it could be another illness.

She actually just posted on her story today that she’s taking a break from social media because of some serious health issues. A newly diagnosed GI disease and worsening ibs which is making her lose weight really fast. She seems like she wants to gain though so maybe not disordered?

If she "never mentions it" why are you allowed to bring it up and others allowed to comment on it? When I tried to put up a post about Adele's weight loss I was told off because it's not allowed to bring up a celebrity on this board unless she says she's anorexic. So why is everyone else allowed to do this?

There was a lot of controversy about Adele’s weight loss but it’s not not allowed

She's super pretty and can I just thank you for posting this because I had my Instagram completely private as it was linked to some Eating Disorder stuff (recovery related mostly but still...) I am barely on Instagram and if you hadn't posted this I wouldn't have seen the fact that my kid borrowed my phone at some point and unprivatized me!!! I noticed bc another PTO dad was following me and my mother OMG
So ummm I'm Instagram stupid does it alert people if I kick them off as followers ? I don't think either would notice but the PTO parent I don't want to offend per say....

I will say I was watching one of her videos once where she was screenrecording on her phone and when she went to Safari, her entire Google homescreen showed a bunch of "ED recovery" websites as either history or bookmarks or whatever. I do think she has pretty severe GI issues though, so maybe that was caused by longterm ED throughout younger teen years on top of any persisting ED tendencies/behaviors she might have now

Also I'd put her around 14-15, I'm a few inches taller than her and I've gained some from ~13 (maybe 5 pounds?) and we look quite similar. Definitely not higher than 16 like a lot of people are saying..

She definitely doesn't look that thin to me.

She seems just thin.

Nothing crazy about it.

Maybe slightly in the underweight category.

I donno eh.

That photo looks off. Like, is it Photoshopped? It just doesn't look quite right.

She was pretty thin in her older photos as well (I guess cross-country in high school) but there's this certain gaunt look her face has now. It's way more than just her face slimming down due to becoming an adult. Her eyes look tired and have lost that vibrancy she used to have in her old pics and her cheeks definitely seem to give it away...

 

edit: I didn't realize she had a Youtube channel, she looks a little more alive there

Man from personal experience IBS can seriously fuck you up and make it almost impossible to maintain a normal diet or intake. When someone has a bowel disorder I make no assumptions about ED/weight stuff bcs it's honestly a miserable situation to be in

I just hope she finds a treatment/routine that helps improve her health + quality of life tbh

I’m not usually good at picking up on photoshop but her one knee looks like it’s bulging in the side? Like as if she photoshopped her knee bigger to make her thigh look extra small?

There's no way she's naturally skinny 

I'm just going to judge her by her looks and to me it is obvious she has an eating disorder or disorded eating

Yep I noticed this too. Either it's just on a weird angle or its Photoshopped because it doesn't look natural. I could be wrong but yeah.
