79 lb anorexic mom shares clothes with her 7-year-old daughter

Wowwwwwww. 26-year-old Rebecca Jones weighs 79 pounds, weighing more than her 7-year-old daughter Maisy, who she is 8 inches taller than.

Her diet consists of soup, toast, and energy drinks. Doctors tell her that if she doesn’t eat more she’ll die, and she doesn’t care. She was teased growing up, weighing as much as 210 lbs at one point. She developed the eating disorder when her parents divorced, at age 11.

At college she felt a kick in her stomach, went to the doctor and found out she was 26 WEEKS PREGNANT. She still had a flat stomach, hadn’t put on weight, and was a size 6. Up until that point she thought she was infertile because her weight loss made her periods stop. Even though she was pregnant, she only put on 7 lbs. Her baby was born 5 lbs 7 oz.

This is SO FREAKING CRAZY. That picture up there makes me feel sick too. She is 5’1″ 79 lbs. I wish they would’ve chosen a picture in more form fitting clothing so people don’t go, “ah, well she doesn’t look that bad.” Because underneath that baggy dress she probably looks like death. Gross. At least her little girl looks like she eats enough, but that’s a terrible example to set for your kid.

  1. Wow that is sad and disgusting. I don’t have kids and I’m not anorexic, but I wish her daughter could give her the strength to overcome her addiction to energy drinks.
