I recently posted a meme that said, “If you’ve become obsessed about weighing yourself often to see if you’ve lost weight, then put the scale away.” That meme seemed to put some of my friends and followers off. Please, let me clarify that statement. I was anorexic in my last year of high school and beginning of college. In my pre-...
