Courtney Grimshaw, now 24, was just 12 when she started to restrict her eating to be thinner than her ‘popular’ older sister, Rebecca – then 14. Rebecca would often tease Courtney about her weight – calling her ‘fat ass’ and a ‘fat pig’ - but the consequences were devastating. Courtney lost three and a half stone (56lbs) in the space of a year and by the age of 15 she was skeletal. The sisters initially competed to be the slimmest – eating just 350 calories each a day and exercising compulsively for hours. But it wasn’t long before Courtney was pushing her body to its limits.
