Stopped eating again - September 14th 2013, 02:18 AM

So I have stopped eating again. It has been three days and I'm only eating one meal a day and its a very unhealthy amount because it's almost nothing. Like last night all I had was a half a bowl of salad. Today I hard arbys so now I can't eat for days. I'm hungry and I have Chinese food sitting on the counter for me. I want to eat it but it's gonna make me feel guilty that I'm going to purge. I want to cut too because of all of this :/ Ugh but I don't know if I want to start eating again I am obese because of pills I was on before that I was thin :/ And it's control


Don't lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It's okay not to be okay
Sometimes it's hard, to follow your heart
Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising,
Just be true to who you are

Hey, Frankie, i'm not really an expert on this, But i'll try my best.

You should try to eat a Variety of Foods; All different types of food,
BUT with rough same calories/energy, etc, So you get to have a 'fun' time to make a decision on which food to digest, but this will make you feel incontrol and bonus for confidence, (note this is my idea, NOT a professional! Far from)

Anyway, Also try to enjoy the Taste the flavour of experience for different foods; and try to watch a interesting film or something entertaining Whilst eating to take your mind off it.

DONT CUT! Its hurtful to a beautiful girl like yourself! Don't do it Hun, FOCUS on what issues you have now, Don't go making more okay?



Go ahead and eat your Food, don't think of it as a bad experience, What you are doing is Very healthy for yourself, Very, (eating)

Forget about the 'guilt' feeling that you may have, forget about that! Watch a movie or something entertaining and have lovely food while doing it.

Hope i helped, though i probably didn't because i don't know anything on this type of problem. I wish i could reach out and hug you. You poor thing. If you want any more...useless advice or just a chat i'm here for you, okay?

Hey Frankie,

Please consider seeing a professional for these eating habits. It doesn't matter if you're obese, unhealthy behavior is unhealthy behavior and it harms your body, your metabolism, and your psyche. These behaviors are just a cycle; you binge, you restrict, you binge, you restrict. My mother's bulimia was very similar to this, and it doesn't get better without treatment. Talk to a therapist. You're never "too fat to have an eating disorder," so don't let these feelings stop you. Eating disorders can happen to anybody, and appear in many different ways. Obviously, you have not been able to treat yourself. This isn't because you're stupid, it's because it's incredibly hard, if not impossible to control an eating disorder. Get yourself help.

Stay strong. <3
Traci

Have you been talking to your regular therapist about your disordered eating? Even if your therapist's main focus isn't on your eating disorder, they still may be able to give advice, refer you to other treatment, and treat you for your other issues more effectively if you are talking with them about all of your issues.
