Knowing a New Freedom…

In the summer of 1979, I was a beautiful, slender, Intelligent 13 year old. When the time came to head to the beach, I to slipped into my red one piece bathing suit.

Unfortunately, when I looked into the mirror I did not see that beautiful slender girl. Instead I saw my pale legs and thighs which touched each other.
I threw the bathing suit away and vowed never to put on a swimsuit ever again.

At that point I began to exercise desperately, restricting how much food I ate, as the obsession with my appearance began.
