I think I was about 11 maybe 12. Me and my mum went on a diet together for the first time.
im not even 16 yet and im really self concious about my tummy flab
My mom has been begging me to diet with her since I was 8…. EIGHT!!!
Decided i was “obese” at 6
I was about 7/8
I didn’t realize I had an eating disorder until I was 16 and accepted on the cheer-leading squad. They were giggling and asking me why I wore XL shorts if I were a size small. I told them that I thought this WAS my size, and all of the girls stopped laughing. They started monitoring what I ate to make sure I was okay. When they found out that I wasn’t eating, they helped me slowly get healthier.
I never thanked them for saving me, but I should have.
And if I could be with you tonight,
I would sing you to sleep,
Never let them take the light behind your eyes."

I know how you feel but you’re more smart and more beautiful than you will ever know.
I honestly feel so useless right now. A nuisance. Like nothing. I feel so alone.
