Eating Issues Not Extreme. Why Worry?

January 29, 2012

“I’ve had eating issues for a few years now, and I don’t really think it’s affected me too much. I’m not very extreme in what I do, and since I’m only sixteen, I figure I’ve got time to work my way toward a healthier lifestyle. My mom, however, is worried about the way I eat (plus I keep losing a little weight). She keeps telling me I’m setting myself up for a lot of trouble later in life. What do you think? Is it really that important for me to deal with this now? It seems like there are other, more important things I could be focusing on.”
