When I was 10, my close friend and I watched the Nadia movie on my couch with bagfuls of sour patch kids and sour laces.  We were both nationally ranked swimmers (my friend was ranked #1 in her event) and were pooped after our 3-hour Saturday morning practice.  We were ENGROSSED in the movie while simultaneously gorging on candy.  When we got to the “carrots are delicious” scene our eyes grew big, we scanned all our empty candy bags and burst out, “Is THAT what we’re supposed to do?!”  We were mortified.  Needless to say, our diets lasted only a few days but I do mark that as one of my first of many moments of feeling body shame.
