This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of eating disorders, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I feel like my life is a cycle.
Ana > Binge > Ana > Binge
With little healthy eating in between.
When I eat healthy and watch my calorie, fat, carb, etc... intake I ALWAYS end up restricting again.
Then I binge because I feel bad about restricting.
Then I restrict because I feel bad about binging.
You see where this is going?

this sounds like a vicious cycle, yet it always is.

You could just do regular exercise, like walking, biking, jogging?

When you go out with your friends, Jog alot, jog to the shops, etc.

Walk around town as much as possible.

Or bike around town, very fun and very good way to burn calories.


Do you have any favourite Vegetables and fruit you like to eat? even if there is none in your house, you could always jog out and purchase some.

Keep yourself occupied as much as possible

Hey Sara Lynn,

Have you reached out to anybody about these habits that you have? I know that it is scary at first to admit you have a problem. It's much easier to ignore it and hope it gets better, but I promise you, it won't. These habits will take over your life, maybe not even in the form of an eating disorder, but in the form of depression, self-hatred, and shame. Your health can deplete. Your friendships can fall apart. At this point, you may think it'll help you get that perfect body but it'll do everything but.

I'd recommend finding an adult you trust that you can reach out to. Friends can sometimes not know how to react; my friends in high school definitely tried to "copy" my eating habits thinking that they were "cool" and "thinspiring." So, an adult is your best bet. Maybe aim for a school counselor, a teacher, or a parent. Don't hold anything back from them. Sometimes, this is hard to do when first trying to tell because it's easy to just break down, so it might be best to write it down and give it to them in written form. This can help you get across exactly what you need to say.

Good luck, we're here for you.

I'd like for someone to help me.
I really would.
I just can't.
It's embarrassing. Some people don't believe you. Some people just don't believe in eating disorders. People think binge ED is something that a person can just stop. Like they don't understand why I can't stop stuffing my chubby mouth! People are so mean.
I don't know if I can get help...
I know I'm not alone in this, there are plenty of girls with the same problem (as well as guys) but no one here that I can simply lean on.
I've always been an independent person.
