Personal Quotes (8)

I really don't look back unless someone asks me to look back, and then I have to. Otherwise, why would I? I was attacked.
I just started shrinking, I'd put on makeup differently to sort of hide that I was wasting away. Strangers would say, Oh, that's not enough food on your plate.
[on the 1992 Winter Games] it felt like it was the first time I came out of my shell, If I saw someone at the cafeteria with a USA jacket on, I'd just go sit with them.
[on her eating disorder]I didn't realize what I was doing. I lost a whole bunch of weight before competing because I was working out for hours,it's a lot of work. Then realizing, Oh, I ate a banana today.
[on developing her eating disorder]I would avoid food because it was something I could do. I felt like I could control that and nothing else.I don't know why but that seemed like an accomplishment.
on why she developed an eating disorder]I was trying to help everyone else. I was taking care of my mom, trying to be there for everyone.
[on how she stopped her eating disorder]But then I saw my son doing the same thing. He was, like, No, no, no. I'm not hungry. I'm fine. I'm fine.I was like, Oh. Give me a piece of that pizza. I better eat that because he's watching me and doing what I'm doing. I'm doing that again. I'm so thankful for a logical brain because it could've gone such a different route.
[on producing the documentary Why Don't You Lose 5 Pounds] I've seen women who have ended up having having hysterectomies because they had an eating disorder for so many years that they damaged their bodies so much. There's one girl that I competed against when I was young, she died.I think a lot of times people see it as something they can control, but frankly the eating disorder starts to control you.
