Other informationEATING DISORDER
She has spoken about struggling with an eating disorder in her late teens and early 20s. "It is like a snowball that just gets bigger and bigger. First you cut out some food and think, 'Oh, that was easy'. Then you cut out more. Those close to me were shocked. I know I did not look good, like a skeleton, but you have a competition with yourself, two voices fighting each other. It was not the rational part of me that was in control. It's difficult in sports, because some people experience progress if they lose weight. You can get a positive boost, but then it turns negative in the end. The thing that stuck with me from my recovery was that we only live once. I wanted to live life to the fullest, with all the joys and challenges it has to offer." (thenorwaynews.com, 11 Aug 2021)
