Hi everyone, I've been reading all the stories many of you have written on having eating disorders. I, myself have never had one but like almost everyother teenage girl on the planet i think about my weight all the time. And, yes, I am slightly overweight. All I really wanted to say was that anyone who has ever considered an eating disorder or has one should read an amazing book. Its called "Wasted" by Marya Hornbacher. It is the most inspiring and thought provoking book I have ever read. Now I'm not a book freak or anything but this is simply the best book. Its Marya's autobiography. She suffered with eating disorders from under the age of 10. It is also a very vivid book with imagery that made me queasy. YOU ALL MUST READ THIS BOOK!!! PLEASE do this, its very important to me that others know about this book. Thanks.
