When people lose weight, they believe they're fat, when they're fat sometimes they believe they're thin. But you should try to think it in a differen way, try eating new things, and if you try fruit, hopefully it'll change the way you think of food.

PM me if you need me.

Hey,

It does seem like you are experiencing some disordered thoughts and disordered behaviors regarding food and body image. Do you have any insight as to how this started? Sometimes people notice that their food behaviors and thoughts began shortly after an upsetting event, a period of high stress, an emotional time, etc. Does anything seem to trigger you? Understanding what's behind your thoughts and behaviors is the key to getting back on track.

It also might be a good idea to talk with a parent, teacher, or other adult you trust--it's always good to have support, and will be helpful in getting you back on a healthy path!

Take care of yourself.

Hi there Adelina (pretty name by the way!) I do have to agree with what Jen said, by what you've posted it definitely seems like you're thoughts towards your body image and food aren't healthy, and this is shown by the fact that you've lost weight and that you feel like you need to loose weight. I'm sorry to hear about you splitting up with your boyfriend, I know how you feel, it's really not a nice feeling because it can make it feel like you're not good enough, which might be what's led you to act like this with your eating. What you need to understand though is that doing this to yourself will not make it better.

The fact that you've posted this is actually a really good thing, and I'm really glad that you've admitted that you're scared of what's happening, because it's important that you understand that you shouldn't be acting in this way. Is there anyone you feel like you can talk to about this? Talk through everything about the breakup might make you realise that there are people who care, and might help you a lot, it did with me and makes you realise who your real friends are. If you want to talk through things with me feel free, but I do think it's important to have someone who can help you through this.

Take care, here if you need anything,
Ellie x
