When I was a senior in high school, I became very anxious about my future. Concerned about what college to attend and whether I was going to get married, I wanted desperately to know how my life was going to turn out.

I was never satisfied with my figure and was always trying new diets. I thought I would be much happier if I weighed a lot less, so I began starving myself. Soon I had an eating disorder, and eventually my health declined. This lasted over a year. Then I regained the needed weight, but the fear of eating normally remained, and for the next few years I was overweight.
