Control - March 10th 2018, 10:01 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.

So I have struggled with an ED off and on since I was 15. I know most of you know this though. Anyways I have found myself restricting a lot more lately I mean two months ago I was doing it without realizing it really. Now I am purposly restricting for some time of control. I feel like I am not in control since I am kind of in charge of the house while my grandparents are gone. SO I am hardly eating most of the time. The other day I really wanted to purge. I just don't know what to do.

I pride myself on losing weight in the healthy way on WW, but I seem like I am slowly slipping into my ed. Also I have lost a lot of weight on WW, but when I look at myself in the mirror or just in general it seems like I actually look fatter. I also really want my boobs gone and they aren't leaving it just pisses me off. I know they will go down because when I was at my lowest they were really small.

It just seems like this ED is creeping in and IDK what to do.

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

It makes sense that with your grandparents gone, you may feel not in control when it comes to eating and your eating disorder. Would it help to have someone that can perhaps check up on you every now and then and remind/ask that you have eaten?

Even though you have lost a lot of weight, it makes sense that with an eating disorder, you may look in the mirror and feel like you seem to look fatter. Perhaps this is just a distortion caused by the eating disorder, in that it wants to make you feel this way because then you might be tempted to restrict more.

Hope you are coping okay

It's very common for those who have lost a big amount of weight to still fell overweight, you should be proud for the weight you lost and the way you lost it. Embrace your new body and love yourself. This will help you want to control your weight more, knowing how hard you worked for this.
