A Singapore girl's story of her uphill battle to lose weight, and then ironically, a battle to gain weight as she became anorexic has gone viral and struck a chord with thousands of Singaporean netizens.
"Her pink dress makes her look even more like a pig", "what a fat swan" and "smokey eyes whore makeup" were some of the unkind comments she had to endure from her classmates.
In 2010, weight 180lbs ( 82kg)
Back home, her mental anguish didn't stop either. When she logged into her Facebook, she was upset at the number of snide comments left on her prom picture about her weight.
In a message to others battling with obesity, she said that as much as she would love to tell them not to listen to mean people, she can't, as ignoring others won't stop the problem.
"I told myself that I will change my body image so that I can tell them to f**k off," she said. So she worked hard to lose 30kg and learnt how to put on makeup.
She said she holds no bitterness towards the people who used to bully her, as they were the indirect cause of her successful transformation. She readily admitted that she herself used to have a bad attitude, and that changing her attitude made her a better and more beautiful person both inside and out.
"Always believe that change is possible," she said.
However, while many praised her for her successful weight-loss journey, few knew that she also was a victim of a weight problem on the other end of the spectrum - anorexia.
