Sporty Spice a.k.a. Melanie Chisholm is worried that she might never get pregnant, for she thinks that the unhealthy lifestyle that she practised during her days as a member of Spice Girls has done permanent damage to her health.
The singer said that during the prime of her career in the band, she did a lot of harm to her image as she was underweight, when lot of young girls looked up to her.
I was underweight and my image was unhealthy. There were kids who were looking up to me. I want to rectify any of the damage I caused, the Sun quoted her, as saying.
I got so thin when I wasnt eating my periods stopped and my bones became very fragile. I may have done permanent damage. I hope Im still in with a chance, she added.
The 32-year-old, who is in a relationship with Thomas Starr, a builder, for five years now, said that being a member of a successful girl band was a life changing experience.
Mel C added that she was living-off adrenaline and did not bother to take care of herself.
It took me a long time to recover from the whole experience that was the Spice Girls. It was such a huge, life-changing event and a crazy time. I was living off adrenaline and wasnt taking care of myself, she said.
I had put pressure on myself to look a certain way. I found it hard to feel worthy of what was happening because it was so incredible. I went to the gym and trained constantly. I wasnt eating properly. I wanted to get as perfect as I could, knowing perfection is impossible and that got me very sick, she added.
The singer, who is a healthy size ten now, said that nowadays the pressure of being thin is even more, and that the stress affects teenagers.
Its a hundred times worse than when I started out. We have to take responsibility and fight it through the media and the fashion industry because its children who are affected, she said.
