Ever since I was like, 5 I have always had a problem with my body image. since I can remember my mom would tell me I had a body like my grandma (who's overweight) and my ssiter had a body like my grandpa (who's skinny). Once when I was 8 there was a commercial on about dieting and they said "are you addicted to the refrigerator" and my step dad said, "Heather, sounds like me and you." And i look back at pictures of myself and i was NOT FAT. My half sister, jasmine is unfortunatley, overweight and I feel so bad for her because she's only 10 and she gets made fun of at school and my mom does nothing. i have always been health-conscience with food decisions and eating. Even now, today I hav eproblems with my body image. When I was 17, I went for 4 months with only eating a granola bar a day and sometimes a bowl of cereal. I have never been to any type of doctor for this... my friends would even say that they would bring me to a doctor and they didn't. And it's like, I liked the attention of them saying that i was getting skinny and i should go to a doctor.. i don't even really like when someone says, you're average... i would rather hear skinny. I am not as bad about it as I was. When Lyric was born, I had only gained 20 lbs, but lost 40 lbs! And I weighed about 120 and now I have gained weight since she was born... argh. I know I wouldn't starve myself, but sometimes I feel better when I don't eat much during the day.... argh. what can I do?
