Possibly an ED? - December 2nd 2010, 08:44 PM

I despise my body. I've always envied the girls who are thin and can fit into single digit jeans. I've always been "heavy" (AKA FAT) and nothing works for me to lose weight. I've been on diets, I've exercised, ect. So, I've become desperate. I've been skipping meals. Sometimes I don't eat from one day, or sometimes two or three in a row. My longest was a week.
I've heard the horror stories and have seen first hand what eating disorders can do. Do you think I am developing one?

Honestly, yes, you are becoming an anorexic and/or bulimic. I know. I've been an anorexic bulimic. It's not a good thing, and the size of pants doesn't matter, it's if you're healthy. And an eating disorder is not at all healthy. I was where you are. I was always bigger and I had tried everything and nothing worked. I thought the last thing to turn to was an eating disorder, skipping meals and being upset when I ate even the littlest. For some people a lot of things don't work and a lot of people need to use different ways to lose weight. But an eating disorder is never the answer. See if you can get into a dietitian. They are trained to help people find a way that works. Mine was calorie counting. I wear [Edited} pants but I'm also 5'10'' and have big bones. I have curves and I mean yes I have a little stomach but nothing like before. Just keep trying and find what works for you but never turn to an eating disorder.
