Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

Club Latinitas members share their thoughts about eating disorders......

The story is exactly what is happening to me. I haven’t stopped and I don’t know when. I used to weight 167 then during 2 months of summer break, now I weight 139 or 143. Ever since I went anorexic, I’ve been depressed and sad, well most of the time, some of my friends are helping me get better and im glad I have friends to be there for me when I need some one. - Franchesca Soto

 I think this girl in the story got scared & paranoid by everyone telling her she was fat and went into total brake down to get skinnier but she made it worst, I know no one with a disorder but I did go though it for a while because my parent keep telling me about my weight including my sister.  - Jessica Flores


I felt kind of bad because the girl was eating in disorder. And yes I know, but I cant remember who , but they are girls, they are skinny, but they keep saying that thy are fat. -  Sophie Pentland



What I think of the story is. That everyone is perfect the way they are, and that she shouldn’t care about her weight. And I have a friend that have a eating disorder and I eat with her I’m like why you don’t  eat anything? She’s like I’m not hungry. Vanya Ordoñes


I do not know anybody personally with an eating disorder. Personally my reaction to the part of  the story was sad because it makes me sad that people go through that.
