At the age of 13, Sterling was a cheerleader and cross country runner. After her uncle commented that she was getting a roll around her belly, Lindsay became obsessed with her weight. She stopped eating and, when she did eat, purging was the only option. She was losing weight beyond what was normal while still competing and running until the point where she mutilated herself and ending up in an institution. Lindsay was 5'7" and weighed 95 pounds. Her body started to shut down. She stopped menstruating and the doctors warned her that she may never be able to have children. Her miraculous recovery is truly an inspiring story to all youth. The moral of this story: "One small unkind word can have devastating effects on another person's life."
