How far would you go to be skinny?

Watch the video and then discuss.  

I find it sad that we live in a society that puts physical beauty above the rest to the point that we have girls turning to anorexia and bulimia to look "perfect".  


What are your thoughts?

I would do nothing. I am happy with how I am, I was a 00 in my twenties and looked terrible and felt bad.

I puked so much with my son when i was preggo I thought about continuing it.

Honestly I would go pretty far if I didn't have my son.

I was anorexic for years. I hate my body now, and it's all I can do to lose weight healthily instead of going back.

Has anyone watched the OP video yet lol? It explains the point of the discussion better than the title which I used to grab peoples attention.

I was bulimic and addicted to laxatives. I ran 10 miles per day also. I spent 6 weeks in an inpatient eating disorder program. Then, even worse, I started using meth to be thin. It worked but at a terrible price.

The video is blocked on my computer  :(

I'd go pretty damn far though. I don't like puking, so that wouldn't work out. I'm lazy as hell and love to eat, so anorexia would be hard for me to get going on...
