While many people have taken to social media sites to document their weight loss journeys, one woman recently shared a very different kind of weight loss story.
"Over the past 10 months or so, I have struggled with a condition in which it is almost impossible for me to retain any nutrition from the food I eat. This has caused my (sic) to lose about twenty pounds over the last year," Imgur user gcteg wrote on the site.
The first picture she posted in December 2013 shows her 5-foot-10, 117-pound frame. The photo's caption read: "This is when I realized I was beginning to lose weight. I wanted to document it."
She continued to document her weight loss. This photo, taken last March, shows her at 107 pounds:
The last photo shows her at shocking 97 pounds:
"My experience has shown me that you can be "too skinny." I have involuntarily lost my boobs, butt, and energy. I want to remind you that the goal should never be to lose weight, but to gain health. Weight is not necessarily a reflection of health," she said of her weight loss.
Her latest update on the site read:
"Though I am still not able to gain weight back, I am seeing several doctors and working out a diet that helps me maintain a steady caloric intake. It has been rough, but I finally have the resources I need to get better."
