I was anorexic from late eighth grade until my senior year of high school. I used to black out in the shower, black out in class, black out in my boyfriend’s hot tub, and once I blacked out in front of my parents in LAX. My step-dad was the only one who said anything about it, so I don’t know if everyone else just didn’t notice or if they were too nervous to ask me if I had an eating disorder. Regardless, I’ve been pretty healthy since I graduated in 2009. I don’t eat fast food or drink soda and try to eat minimally processed foods and organic produce. But earlier this month I just stopped eating for a couple weeks. I’d eat yogurt for breakfast or have a piece of fruit, but no real meals. The weird part was that I didn’t get hungry at all. I could see my midsection shrinking in the mirror. It made me realize that I could probably go from being a size 12 back to an 8. It’d be so easy because I wouldn’t get hungry if I stayed hydrated and only ate at certain intervals. I don’t know how long it would take, though. Maybe a couple months? I’m pretty active. And the friend I live with is so self-absorbed that she wouldn’t notice. I think the only thing holding me back is the fear of passing out while driving, because I’m always on the road. Still… it would be so easy.
