Cat lost weight because she wanted to be healthier but the biggest factor behind this decision was her body dysmorphia.
“It all started in my teen years,” Doja said, “I started growing weight and the more I worried about it the more it increased. It increased to the point where it started to become a problem for me. It started slowing me down in a lot of things that I did very easily before.”
She added, “With the passing time, I even built body dysmorphia and that’s where the trouble began.” The good thing, however, is that Cat is improving and she has improved a lot. Cat began her weight loss journey at the start of 2021.
