fat worthless why - December 2nd 2013, 10:37 AM

I don't get how even though I haven't eaten for a week, except the one time I happened to b/p, I'm still a cow.. some people say dumb stuff like "you're not fat" or "you're perfect the way you are" to me, thinking it helps. But the mirror says otherwise. It's gotten so that i avoid even looking in mirrors, because the more I do, the worse i feel, which causes me to wither eat everything to try to get rid of the pain, or just no eat anything since I don't deserve to eat anything anyway... I know i shouldn't complain because there are people who struggle with eating disorders every day and though I think I may have one, i don't know for sure. But still..

I don't think you are complaining your just expressing how you feel. I know what it's like when people tell you your not fat or other compliments thinking it helps but it doesn't. I'm not really good at giving advise on this because I struggle off and on with my eating disorder but it sounds like you still do eat and aren't that far into the eating disorder so my advise is to get a therapist that specializes in eds and work with her before it gets out of control like it does. I'm sorry this advise kinda sucked I hope it helped a little

Hey there, I know how you feel a lot. I have people tell me all the time that I'm not that big and stuff and it's hard to believe it. The thing I have to remember is rather I like how I look on the outside or not that beauty is only skin deep. The true beauty comes from inside, and if you're happy with you're there that's what should matter. As for feeling fat, if you truly feel that way maybe talk to your doctor about ways you can lose weight but in healthy ways. Never ever mistake that you're NOT beautiful cause at the end of the day outter beauty can fade away but inner beauty is always there to stay. If you ever wanna talk my PMs and VMs are always open stay strong and know you're loved here.
