A 26-year-old mum and her seven year old daughter look pretty much the same as the mother can easily fit into the daughter's clothes.

Rebecca is extremely proud of the fact that she weighs just five stone and easily fits into the clothes meant for seven or eight year olds.

Rebecca has been a victim of anorexia for most part of her life. She recalls that it all began after she started putting on weight at the age of 13 following her parents' divorce.

As she gained weight, she became the butt of ridicule at school. This caused her to become extremely sad and depressed that she hardly ever ate anything. She slowly lost weight and began to weigh 7 stone.

Her eating disorder got worse after she delivered her child. Her diet during pregnancy was below the recommended amount as she was afraid of weight gain.
