I don't think I am.
I do sometimes skip meals, or go a day with out eating, but I'm not anorexic.
I do think I'm fat, and unfit.
But so do most teenage girls.
And I'm too fat to be anorexic.
Is there a possibility that I am.
No, my moms not right.
Is she?

It's definitely unhealthy to skip meals and even more so to go days without meals. We can't diagnose you with an eating disorder, though, as we are not medical professionals. Is there a reason you are skipping meals?

Seconded, skipping meals is not a good idea unless your doctor has said so. We need a balanced diet to survive and that includes eating semi-regularly. Have you tried eating less but more often

You don't have to be underweight to be anorexic. I don't know if you're anorexic, I'm not a doctor, but I do know that skipping meals really isn't healthy, and it could be indicative of an unhealthy relationship with food and your body.

What about asking your mom to take you to see someone who CAN say if you are or are not classified as having an eating disorder?



Someday I will be strong enough to lift not one but both of us.
I told you to be patient
I told you to be fine
I told you to be balanced
I told you to be kind
