Marlene Richmond A statuesque blonde ( five feet seven inches tall ), Marlene Richmond weighed just over 80 pounds on the day she was admitted to the hospital. Dressed in a jogging suit and leg warmers, she spent part of the initial interview doing deep knee bends . Information for her history was also provided by her older sister, who accompanied her to the hospital. Marlene grew up in a small town in southern Illinois. Her father, who drilled wells for a living, had a drinking problem. Her mother, severely overweight, started numerous fad diets and never had much success with any of them. One of Marlene’s earliest memories was her own resolve that she would not grow up to be like either of her parents. But the concerns of her 10 th grade social circle revolved around appearance, clothing, and diet. That year alone, Marlene dropped 15 pounds from her highest weight ever, which was 125 pounds; even then she complained to her friends that she was too fat. Throughout her high school career, she remained fascinated by food. She took both introductory and advanced home economics. She spent much of her time in computer science class devising a data base that would count the calories in any recipe.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
