• Wow what sport was she representing? Reading this reminded me of how I also counted calories and exercised compulsively when I was back at a girls' school. Not sure if it was feelings of inadequacy which drove me to focus obsessively on body issues. It's v easy to get sucked to repetitive cycles of diet, exercise, diet, exercise esp. during certain chapters of your life. And glad she has stopped the unhealthy behaviours and became a better version of herself now...
  • @joycek That’s true. We all understand after hindsight. At the time it was hard for us to determine what is most important without an experienced mentor at that age. That’s why educated parents usually prepare their children in the best way possible. When I was younger I just chose the toughest subjects for A Level which were unrelated to each other and ended up having a torrid time. In hindsight should have picked a subject of interest and then subjects related.
