It is a shame that the treatment of others leads to such drastic actions.

so i guess i will tell my story of why i am deciding to do this. I am 20yrs old 5'5 and 155lbs. I have been doing gymnastics since i was 3 and i went to a d1 college on a scholarship for it. When i first got there things were fine, but then my coach started telling me that she wanted me to lose a lot of weight (wanted me at 100lbs..) From that day on, every week meeting we had consisted of her telling me how fat i was and the reason i fractured my wrist and tore a ligament in my hand having to get surgery was because i was putting to much weight on it. Last year the meetings got worse and i finally told her that i didn't want to do the sport anymore. i had to see a counselor because i started freaking out about my weight and how people saw me. I am going to school somewhere else in the fall and i am so excited. Things have been better, but i still think about my weight all of the time and i thought it was about time to be safe with it.. being on here and seeing that im not alone really helps and i hope that this site can help me to lose some weight but mainly to be safe when doing it.. :)
