I know I should stop. - January 22nd 2009, 11:35 PM

I started with bulimia, but I think I'm beginning to develop the mindset of anorexia. I've been fasting and exercising and I've lost so much weight in the past week and a half, and even though I know that a quarter of the weightloss is muscle/organ mass and water weight, and the prospect of organ failure and losing my hair are all enough to make me WANT to stop before--God forbid--I do develop a serious ED, I can't because I keep thinking of how good I'll look when I lose more and I'm thin and attractive.

I just cannot talk to anyone about this. It's my frightening little secret, and I want to stop but I don't know what to do because eating frightens me even more.

Please, I really need someone to tell me what to do.

You should stop. This can be very serious, and could even kill you. You should see a doctor, and find healthy ways to lose the weight you want to lose.

You are beautiful just the way you are.

Don't listen to what people say.
They don't know the real you, anyways.

I second what Kaylee said. :] Just be strong. Someone needs to know, because something like this is very difficult to overcome on your own.

Don't let it develop into an addiction. That's what I did and one and a half years later I'm still as bad. Try and see the positives when you look in a mirror, not what you don't like.
