Anorexia, body image, and self-acceptance

Description

From the ages of 6 to 13, Melody, who was a gymnast, practiced 6 to 8 hours per day and was thin, lean, and wiry. She cut back on her athletics to focus on schoolwork, but by her senior year in high school had begun a dietary regimen to try to regain her 13 year-old body. This was a goal that seemed healthy in her mind, had been promoted as healthy by her exercise-addicted family, and was the image she saw paid homage to in the media.
