Thinspiration Challenge | day 22-25
What was your lowest weight? How and why did you gain?
89lbs. Parents and their pressure to make me look healthier for university application processes. I am not putting it on anybody but myself though. I gained too much because of myself, always eating in between mealtimes, indulding on high calorie food, not watching at all whatever I ate and most importantly if I was even hungry. All the while I sat around a lot (classes, studying) but did not get up and moved my fat self (i.e. exercised).
Did the media play a role in your wanting to lose weight?
No, not at all. It started off as something like self-punishment. I only started realizing skinny/very thin people in real life as well as in the media after that.
How do you feel about the terms pro-ana/ pro-mia?
This is not a lifestyle so I do not condone pro-ana / pro-mia. There are reasons these are considered as sickness/disorders.
Have you ever purged? If you have, describe your first experience?
I have but only a handful of times. I cannot really remember it well despite feeling sick afterwards. My face was a spotty red mess for days because of all the broken capillaries.
