Jaime's Story Disordered Eating

I began dieting when I was twelve years old. At first it was an innocent diet but thinking back on it I believe I only used the "diet" as a mask for my obsession. After a while I began starving myself. When I was seventeen I stood at 4'11 and weighed between 75 and 80 pounds. My desire was to weigh 50 pounds. Forced to gain some weight back I found an alternative to control my food intake. At the age of eighteen I was purging ten times a day every single day. Now at the age of nineteen I am finishing my first year of college. I still starve myself at times and purge but not as much as I used to. I hope to win this battle/struggle with food. The Lord is the one who has kept me alive. Thank you for allowing me to share my story/testimony.
