I have probably struggled with the matter of hunger my whole life however if I had to distinguish a significant moment in my life I would travel back to the age of 12 years old It was a memorable spring day to many unfortunately for myself it was very unmemorable It was the day I decided to weigh myself for the first time in my life On my own out of curiosity I jumped on that ominous box we call the scale Excited yet scared at the same time I closed my eyes and then opened them once I felt balanced When I did open my wandering eyes my throat tightened my stomach dropped to my toes and I cringed at the numbers that read 110lbs Now I didnt know this back then but I was naturally thin For a girl measuring 5-6 110lbs was actually too thin Id never really given my weight much thought before and although I knew plenty of girls my age that obsessed about their large tummies or big thighs Id always viewed them as a rather absurd species There fights against fat were a usually unnecessary habit that I viewed a waste of time and directly too tedious I had very little experience with watching my weight Id never cared too tone-up or lose weight I mean my God I was only 12 years old However subconsciously I knew I had embarked on a dangerous journey and whether I wanted to believe it or not I was playing rushing roulette with a game called a DIET For being so young and na I was compelled to this vocabulary word diet I knew the essential truth about it Suddenly in that instant I looked in the mirror and bold faced8230I declared Erica youre going on a diet As insignificant as that day might have seemed it in fact represented a major turning point in my life I was a girl
