Her teachers would refer to her as the ‘best balanced’ girl in school, and relied on her helpfulness and kindness when another child was having difficulty making friends. When she hit Puberty she began to put on weight, she became convinced that being fat was shameful and that in order to retain respect she would have to maintain her thinness. She began becoming obsessed with her weight, at first restricting her food intake by eating less at meal times and cutting out snacks between meals. However, as she began to lose pounds she would set herself new targets ignoring her feelings of hunger by focussing on each new target. She began to realize she didn’t have to be the ideal daughter and do what others expected of her, but she could be the Master of her own fate. Adapted from H. Bruch.(1971).
