(WIDK By AnnaMarie Houlis) – Telling a mother she looks like her daughter’s sister is flattering, but when that mother looks like the younger the sister, it is scary.
26-year-old mother, Rebecca Jones, weighs 70 pounds, which is nine pounds less than her seven-year-old daughter, Maisy.
Jones has suffered from anorexia since she was 13 years old; after her parents divorced when she was 11 and her peers at school teased her for gaining weight from comfort food, the teenager began to starve herself.
According to The Sun, Jones was afraid she would not be able to bear children with her boyfriend, since her periods had culminated and she would often be too frail to get out of bed in the morning.
Somehow Jones got pregnant with Maisy, though she was unaware of it until she was 26 weeks in, and only put on seven pounds during the pregnancy; the mother lost the little amount of weight immediately and now shares clothes with her daughter.
