Question Starvation - January 9th 2014, 06:39 AM

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 have not been on this sight for a while. In fact I was doing good, I even stopped self harming. But recently I broke up with my boyfriend and all of a sudden all of my old feelings came flooding back. Now before I continue I have to say I am overweight, not too much, only by like [Edited.] or so...but it feels so much worse, I hate my stomach and I hate my thighs and so on. Recently I have found myself counting calories and well...at the end of the day they don't add up, it's normaly between [Edited.]. I noticed after a few days and tryed to stop but I just can't physically eat something that I know is high in calories, fat and so on, it makes me feel sick and discusting an I just want to get sick. It's as if I try to do one thing and my brain just does not allow it.

I don't owe you anything, you'll only die a dream forgotten. I've got my pride so hear me sing, I'll never let you steal my coffin

Just so you know, you aren't supposed to post numbers on the site. (calories and weight), it can be triggering for people with ED's, even if most of us are able to give you help. I can't actually change that cause I'm not a moderator, so hopefully you can change it yourself soon.

Any ways, I'm sorry to hear about how much you are struggling. Have you reached out to anyone you know (I mean in real life I mean)? That was something that helped me a lot when I finally told my best friend. I promise that you can over come this and I'm glad you've at least acknowledged that something is going on and that you are struggling. That's often the first step to recovering. I know it'll be hard, but sometimes it is easier to force food down, a starvation diet doesn't really help. What did you try to do when this happened before?
You could also keep a journal of things you eat, of positive thoughts and try to record times when you feel triggered (do you think about your boyfriend, are you bored, are you feeling anxious etc.). I want to make an emphasis on positive thoughts because that's important I think .

Making small, achievable goals and recording them on a list in the journal would be most helpful too. That way if you slip up and binge or try to cut back on calories for a day or 2 you can always remind yourself that it's ok, "there's always tomorrow".

It'll be ok, if you ever need to talk or ask for help we'll be here for you. You will be ok

Feel free to PM me if you ever need to chat or have questions

I'm sure that you are beautiful regardless of the size of your body parts and your body does not deserve to be tormented in such a way. Do you have someone who you trust to talk to about this? It is important to address because disordered eating can really be harsh on your body and can lead to a lot of health complications. It is important to address these issues of low body image so you can learn to love yourself and live a happy life.
I hope this helps. You can private message me any time if you need help.

This is my happy face.
