    They don't see the problem. They see the fat, even when it's not there. It is a mental condition.

    Its the same with any mental disorder, if they were able to recognise and admit that they had a problem, they wouldn't have a problem in the first place.

    Because there is STILL a stigma attached to having a mental illness.

    Because they have the sexiest bodies! And they can fit into smaller places! And they don’t have to waste all that money on expensive nutrients! And when they die their relatives get to save money by buying smaller caskets/urns. It’s a win win situation

    People with mental illnesses deny they are sick because they do not like to be judged by others.
