NEDA Awareness Week, Day 4: THIN, a documentary

A documentary by Lauren Greenfield, THIN follows “the story of four women suffering from anorexia and bulimia in South Florida.”

Polly Williams was found dead at her residence in February of 2008, presumably from suicide.

  1. Reblogged this on Bipolar For Life and commented:
    This is a film about eating disorders. When I was twelve my mother called me “fat ass” one time too many, and I began restricting and vigorously exercising. I dropped from 118 lb to 78 lb over one year. Nobody noticed, except that my mother said I “looked good.” She also has an eating disorder. Over a period of years I gained weight up to 97 lbs and thought I was horribly fat. Now I’m at the upper limit of normal BMI and very nervous about that. I have started exercising again, which is good, but having cravings to count calories and go back to logging everything I put in my mouth. This kind of film actually triggers my anorexic longings, instead of the opposite. I don’t think the people who made it intended it that way, but that’s how it has turned out for me: “I just want to be thin.”
