GUEST,daylia BS: What Constitutes a 'Super Model'? (70* d) RE: BS: What Constitutes a 'Super Model'? 08 Aug 05

PS   I was kidding about weighing 92 lbs, folks. I haven't weighed that since I was about 11 years old.   A ;-) rather than :-)   would have been clearer - sorry bout that. Just to clarify - yes I've struggled with anorexic tendencies, and I do know what it's like to make yourself so thin you're sickly and weak all the time, to regularly starve oneself to the point where you can't eat without pain even when you want to - but I never did let it get to the point of full-blown clinical anorexia.

What "cured" me? Well, bearing and feeding babies can do wonders for the appetite. Watching a family member destroy her health and happiness with bulimia for years was a wakeup call too - but the most effective "cure" I ever found was simply throwing out the bathroom scales about 15 years ago! I've never replaced them. I assess my weight today by how my clothes fit, and that's it. And when I do occasionally get on a scale at the doctors or in someone else's bathroom, at least the numbers revealed don't seem to set the emotional tone for the whole day anymore, like they used to. What a relief to be free of that stupid obsession - I highly recommend it!
