But when she left high school, she not only stopped being active but basically shut down.

"I lost my spark," recalls Ward, now 23. "I was always tired. I woke up not excited about my day and just didn't feel like I had that spark. But I didn't know why."

She was studying for a degree in photography, which she loves, but couldn't do the work and the school "started to grumble." And she started gaining weight.

"I was eating when I was bored. I was eating when I was happy. I was eating when I was tired. I wasn't eating because I was hungry," she says, noting that her parents, who are active and healthy, became concerned.
