I went through the same thing your daughter is going through.
I was a size Double 0 to a zero in high school, but towards they end of the year, I gained a couple of pounds.
I freaked out and my eating disorder got worst! (Nobody mentioned my size, though. I would have probably overdosed or done something impulsive if someone mentioned it.)
This is a stressful time for her. The last thing she needs is to feel like others are judging her body size.
People with eating disorders or disordered eating control their body/food because they feel like there is something that they can't control in their lives. (Getting into college, roommates, dorms, money etc.. are all things that not 100% under her control.)
That is why people are more vulnerable to develop an eating disorder or disordered eating during stressful times or times of transition (like college.)
My mom let me wear clothes that was 6 sizes to big and stuff that was way too tight when I gained and went from 90 pounds to 110 :)
I have faced it. Having tasted, a life wasted. Oh, I erased it, I'm NEVER going back again- E. Vedder
