I had no idea... What a reality check for me!

by thesibs

This website is amazing. I have to do a project on why gymnasts, cheerleaders, and teenage girls in general are so hooked on being thin and then in result get anorexia and bulimia. When I heard I was doing this, I said "Gymnasts and cheerleaders don't do that!" But, I started looking into it. OH MY GOSH. I found so much information not only on here, but on other websites as well. I had no idea. I am a teenage girl who cheerleads and does gymnastics and of course I have always thought about what life would be like if I was anorexic (of course I have never actually been that way, but it didn't even occur to me that the people around me while I was doing these activities could be really sick! This project has really opened my eyes and I am of course giving every website credit for these stories and facts because man, they deserve it.
