I was 11/12 and 5'5. I think my BMI was around 20/21 but the centiles for kids had me in the yellow section. So yeah, that kicked off the whole decade of eating disorders

I was 12/13, close to my current height (164cm/5'4.5") and skinny, I had low muscle tone though.

now my bmi is 20 but I look a lot better because I've gone through puberty (lmao) and because I have slightly more muscle mass. my frame changed a lot throughout puberty, I'm a pretty defined pear/hourglass these days.

for context: I did not develop a restrictive ED. I started binging and subsequently purging to avoid weight gain and to cope with the shame and feeling of fullness. still bulimic at the moment.

I was 52 kg and I dunno if 159 cm or 162 cm already bc I wasn’t really measuring my height but at some point in my teens I was growing.

I wasn’t fat by bmi means but.. I was more of a skinny fat person but I thought bmi was bullshit and that I was really ginormously fat.

IDK man, I was 10 years old and I don't have childhood pictures of myself saved on my laptop. Basically a slightly chubby 10-year old that was just starting puberty. Like, tiny awkward floppy-tits that weren't tits yet, puberty acne, hips slowly getting wider. You know, typical chubby pubescent kiddo.


They/Them 1,65 m.
Now tracking centimeters instead of kilograms. Will measure every 10-14 days.

 

Measurements July 21
Thigh: 63 cm (lost 0 cm since 21 May)

Hips: 105 cm (lost 0 cm since 21 May)

Stomach: 101 cm (lost 2 cm since 21 May)

Thinnest part of waist: 78 (lost 1 cm since 21 May)

I was 5’3.75” and 118 lbs at age 12. I was pretty active so a lot of it was muscle but I feel like I was still horribly fat, especially compared to my peers.
This is a horrible contribution to MPA, and I regret it, but not enough to abstain from posting it.

I was around 105 lbs at 5'3 as a youngish teenager. Bit of a babyface, which I hated. I hated my body, but I didn't really feel fat.

 

Gained up to 113 lbs in grade 11 after dropping gym class. I panicked, and that was the first time I really got obsessive about wanting to lose weight.

 

I'm pretty close to that size again, and I hate it every bit as much as I did when I was younger.

I was about 118 at 5'6. I thought I looked huge, I thought I was so overweight. Which looking back at that (I am at 130 - down from 160 after recovering for the first time) and I cannot help but laugh at how much I would give to be 118 again. I was extremely fit then as well so I didn't have the "skinny fat" look either. 

 

I have struggled with an ED since I was 12 but it started really going down hill and really became what it is today at this point.


Height: 5'6

Bmi: 21.0

Hw: 160

Cw: 130

Cgw: 118

I was crazy skinny as a child. People used to say borderline rude things to my mom about it. I was in the 99th percentile for height and like 30th percentile for weight. Sometimes the wind would knock me over. I was crazy active and wasn't interested much in food. When I was 11-12 I started puberty and it was upsetting that I wasn't a twig anymore. At 13, I started to refuse food.

This is literally me! I was always underweight as a kid even though my ED didn’t develop until my teens, I remember the doctor telling my mom to give me Boost between meals and half & half in place of milk lol. Recently the clinic I had my well child visits at digitalized all their old patient records, and since I recently saw a specialist in the same hospital network, I was able view mine in the patient portal. I was 33 lbs at 6 years old. 😩 As a kid I remember feeling insecure and wanting to gain weight to look more like my friends, but then when puberty came around and my body actually started filling out I hated it more, even though I was still objectively small.

Around 5’0 and near 90lbs. This was my heaviest in my life when my Ed just began, I actually gained some while my ED was just beginning, so I was at my heaviest when dx’d.

I was always on the smaller side due to a growth delay, and I think i wasn’t even really on the growth charts. I hated how I was small growing up, thought nobody would love me, and even did shit like drinking pure olive oil because I read it would give me bigger breasts.

Then I got my Ed, I just didn’t gain, and I grew 2 inches, but apparently I may have stunted myself some.
