Our expert says:
Anorexia sounds like a possibility, though other explanations for sudden or severe weight loss of course are also possible. Any severe weight loss tends to lead to periods stopping, that's notm limited to anorexia. Depression in itself could be very relevant. Even if her mom's thigh bones were gigantic, that's not relevant at all.
Maybe the issue should be not necessarily talking to her about anorexia as such, but about your concern for her obvious major weight-loss, and how wise it would be for her to see a doc for a proper asssessment of why this is and what best to do about it.
Surely, indeed, her husband must have noticed this, so maybe a quiet chat with him would be helpful to aid you in understanding her and her problem, and maybe planning together how to be most helpful.
