The moment that changed everything
Me at my 10 year old birthday party: right before everything went down.
One day during recess in the 4th grade, the “Queen Bee” of my middle school told me she was “so fat” at 69 pounds….and then asked how much I weighed…I was about 10 pounds heavier and…ashamed. I lied and told her, “I don’t know…” but from the day on, I made up my mind that, no matter what, I was going to lose about 10 pounds to be as pretty, popular and thin as her.
Long story short, an innocent childhood diet turned into a full blown eating disorder that would soon wreak havoc on my health for years to come.
