How true Nan's words are! I can appreciate being very thin without being anorexic, too. I underweight as a kid and until the birth of our 4th, but I ate a lot of healthy foods including deserts and snacks. Even when I gained then, I was still underweight.
A beautiful 2nd cousin of mine has battled anorexia for years and can't even hold a job. It's affected everything in her life as well as her brother, his family, her parents and grandparents to name a few. It's so sad.
Do take care.
