    When normal people look at the fitness models on magazines, the girls on Instagram, or anyone we see on the billboards, it always makes us feel bad about ourselves. "Why don't we look like them?" Some people go as far as to try to compete with others online to see how much weight they can lose. It ends up not being about looking or feeling good anymore, it's end up being more about winning. Until they're hospitalized....

    My older Sister developed anorexia when I was 6 (she was 15) and it was heart breaking I remember me and my little brothers hugging her thinking she would not make it luckily she recovered,is still thin but better- no one should ever have to go through that remember you are all beautiful and shouldnt worry about your weight xxxxx

    I hate that some of the people in the comments are saying that they skip meals,and ask if they are anorexic.If you cry when you see yourself in the mirror,if you weigh yourself multiple times a day,if you isolate yourself from everyone because you are "too fat",if food literally scares you,if you have an extremely low calorie goal,yes.If you skip one meal,and still eat over 1000 calories,if you don't have issues with food,no.

    I agree with them telling you to deactivate the pro Anna account but they shouldn't have yelled at you though. They should have just explained afterwards that what Anna was telling you to do isn't good for your health.

    I’m under weight but it’s not because of a diet I’m supposed to weight about 120 ish for my age but instead I weigh around 80 pounds well because of my metabolism but it’s hard for me to gain weight and now I’m scared that it’s not my motabolism that is causing it but there’s no way because I can eat a lot of food in one sitting and gain nothing at all

    I get called anorexic at school and I was only in 6th grade. I was 80 lbs while the people that were calling me that were either my one best friend that hits me and punches me until I move away and then she calls me a wuss because I don’t fight back or people that were 120 lbs.

    If recovery would really be that easy... It isn't, some people die, many have a relapse, others have the illness for their whole life... only few people get completely rid of this illness... Recovery is like going through hell...

    People have called me anorexic, stick, and “too skinny” but I have never gone on a diet. I drink chocolate milk and brioche everyday for breakfast. I eat A LOT of food, but I still stay the same weight and is 10 pounds away from underweight. I can’t gain weight except with height. And it’s getting hard. But it’s okay. Many people only think of fat shaming, but there is also such thing and thin shaming. I just want to say everyone is beautiful, and as long as you are healthy, you don’t need to change! Everyone is beautiful!

    Anna's coach is like the human version of Satan in my opinion. I'm not trying to be racist but this is truth. Being slim is good for your health and lifestyle but being too much slim or too much fat can ruin your health and lifestyle.

    TVclip is being very irrational by demonetizing videos that mention words related to mental illness. That's completely messed up and they need to recognize that demonetization of videos that mention things related to mental illness makes it harder to spread the awareness about it. Advertisers need to start realizing that spreading the word about mental illness isn't a bad thing to do.
