Former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell tells The Sun she got so thin her body shut down and she stopped having periods. It was then she realized she had gone too far with her obsessive dieting, fearing she would never be able to have children. “At one point, regardless of how fit I was looking, my body just wasn’t working properly,” she said. “My menstrual cycle had disappeared, unsurprisingly with the weight loss and stress. But the thought of not being able to have children really was a good wake-up call for me. So nowadays when it’s that time of the month and I feel grouchy and my boobs swell up two cup sizes and my clothes feel tight, I try to see it as a blessing from Mother Nature. I don’t want to be back abusing myself with food or exercise.”
