IE it is not always about weight. In fact, I feel that weight is a scapegoat. Society blames it on weight and body image. And for some who develop eating disorders, it might start out about one or both of those. But for many of us, it does not. And yet we fly with it, because society believes that what it is, and saying it is is easier than explaining all of... this. It was never about weight or body image for me. Everyone else made it about that.
