This is a powerful story about a secret many people share--some form of an eating disorder. You did a nice job of showing the symptoms--obsession with food, hording, lying, secret binging. You really did a nice job covering a difficult subject.
I love this whole concept of hoarding junk food, hoping no one will find out. It's an interesting take on the whole topic of junk food.

The only thing I would have done differently: start with her hoarding the things in her closet, then reveal later on what she's been doing.

Great job with this and I love the message about being truthful.
Your entry hit home with a lot of people, I'm sure. I've never had a hoarding problem, but have had issues with weight in the past. It isn't easy, no matter who you are. I think your article may be of help to someone in case they see themselves in this entry. Good writing.
I bet there are people out there who think they're the only ones who do this! You described the situation so well! God bless.

God Bless~
