I was consumed with the visualization of being tiny and being just like other young girls my age. I was in love with the concept of being “perfect.” At this point in my life, I thought my weight was the most insoluble thing I would have to tackle, but little did I know how early I had spoken. In fourth grade, I noticed drastic alterations in my personal life. My father became more and more withdrawn from my mother, sister, brother, and I. I was naïve and ingenuous at the time, and didn’t
