I don't know what to do - August 6th 2017, 01:22 AM

I hate the way I look, I am edited pounds and 5 foot 4. I've been eating healthy and working out regularly for 9 months or so and I've only managed to lose edited pounds.

I'm a dancer so I'm constantly surrounded by people who eat more than I do and still manage to weigh a good edited pounds less than I do. I cut down what I eat a lot this year, but it just isn't enough.

I can't stop eating because I need energy for dance, but purging my dinner has become a very prominent thought in my head lately, but I thought before i make any rash decisions, I thought I'd come on here to see if there are any reasons I shouldn't.

I'm sorry if I am wasting your time,

Hey there,

Thank you for reaching out on TeenHelp.

From what you've said above it sounds like you are quite unhappy and very conscious about your weight and how you see yourself.

There's a number of ways to manage unhelpful thoughts and behaviours. Have you ever spoken to anybody about how you're feeling? Like a teacher, a friend, or your parent maybe?

There's many many reasons why you shouldn't purge. Nobody would ever give you reason why you should. First of all, it does not make you lose weight lovely. Purging damages your insides, risks bleeds, dehydration and infections. It's just a very unhealthy path to go down. There is other healthier ways to manage your weight. PM me if you need a chat

Hope this helps,

There may not always be a direct answer to a problem, but there is always a way to get through it.
Strength is the best quality of the human mind and body, and I believe everyone has it; whether they believe it or not. Look for that tiny glimmer of hope deep inside yourself and once you've found it let it blossom, glow and illuminate your life.

I'm always here if anyone wants to talk.
