Anything else you would like to share with us: When I was in high school I struggled with an eating disorder. I started out at 180lbs and ended up at 95lbs. I rarely ate. When I got to college I struggled with depression and still do and I turned to food because it was the one thing that I could count on and had control over. I quickly put on weight. I got into a relationship that was unhealthy in college and he was always talking how fat I was and was belittling me and often would abuse me verbally and once physically and I decided enough was enough and left him when I left him I had this weird reaction to it where I would go without eating again lost 30lbs and then I put back on 50lbs once I got over it. I am currently happy and ready to lose over the 100lbs that I need to in order to get healthy.
