It turned out that I was fascinated to learn more about Portia and her career, which began at age 12 as a model, which is where the unhealthy bingeing and purging began. This is not an enjoyable read.

She would only eat calories a day and yet run at top speed for an hour. Marathon runners carbo load. They at least eat vegetables occasionally. All Portia would eat was microscopic portions of tuna and egg whites. Reading endlessly about her obsession with calories gets tedious, but I kept going because I wanted to find out how she got to such a happy ending of being physically healthy and in love with such an amazing woman, Ellen.

It was a disorder of the highly accomplished, cultured, beautiful. It belonged to models, singers, and Princess Diana. I had always secretly been in awe of anorexics with their super-human restraint. She stumbled for a long time before that happened. Getting well again means you have to check back in.

People become anorexic and bulimic for many reasons.

I was very impressed with de Rossi's insight regarding her condition, which is something that's very rare since most people don't know the real cause of whatever they are facing be it an addiction or whatever it is, some even go as far as to blame their genes, which, of course, puts any and all power outside of themselves making it almost impossible to change their lives.

I was equally impressed and surprised by her fantastic writing skills and her amazing ability to explain in great detail and with such clarity the events in her life, her eating habits, and the thought patterns which fueled her behavior.

For me it was quite heartbreaking to read about the things that she would do to herself, and how bad she felt about herself sometimes, so my heart really goes out to her. But I am so very glad to know that she managed to get herself out of that nightmare and is now living a beautiful dream.
