6 years ago, when Molly Eledge from California was a 20-year-old college student, she weighted 90lbs (41 kg), ate almost nothing and was running for miles a day. She started to see a therapist and a nutritionist and finally acknowledged that she needed to gain weight to become healthy.
But for Molly, to become healthy meant to become fat, so she started binging and purging. She began CrossFit in September 2012 but was still binging.
However, through focusing on improving at CrossFit, setting physical challenges and lifting new weights she started respecting her body and, in 2013, met her fiancé, fellow CrossFit athlete Erik, 29. 'I began to get a better handle on binging less and trying to maintain a healthier relationship with food,' she told Self. [DailyMail]
Today, Molly is 27, she's healthy, happy and can lift more than her own body weight.
