A person who had been overweight or obese for most of their life decided to take control of their health in 2020. They went from 275 lbs to 180 lbs, mainly by counting calories and cycling. As they started posting their progress on Twitter, they gave their friend Ann, who has struggled with Binge Eating Disorder (BED), a heads up about the content. Ann initially said she'd be fine, but things took a turn for the worse as their friendship began to suffer.

A Life-Changing Decision 💪
