32. Dieting got me an eating disorder, you have my support fully.
I started by just wanting to lose a few pounds. But as I did, people complimented me and I liked the compliments, so I cut back on food even more and started exercising more. I'd get more compliments and then push myself harder and harder until I couldn't control it anymore. I was going on about 300 calories a day and I hated myself for that. If I slipped and ate extra, I would use laxatives, ipacac, whatever to get rid of it.

I really hate the stigma that comes with being overweight. Im fairly tall as well, 5'8" and I have a large frame. I remember just hating my body because even when I got bony, my bones were large.
