I am flipping channels and came across 16 and Pregnant show on MTv.
Kayla suffered from anorexia and now she is pregnant. She is having trouble with the weight issue.
I can (unfortunately) connect because I suffered from an eating disorder when I got pregnant. I had been through anorexia and then bulimia.
I hated feeling fat when I wasn't pregnant. When I got pregnant, I had to eat. My husband (at the time) made sure I ate. I struggled. It killed me. I turned bulimic because I couldn't handle the weight gain.
It was hard. Having an eating disorder and being pregnant are a very tough combination!
The more of this I watch, the more I feel her struggle. I have been there, done that. It hurts. It's hard. I hated it. Food has always been a struggle.
This is seriously something that touches me and hits me hard. I totally understand. If you haven't been there, you can't even imagine how it feels.
I just really connected with her.
