Question Need to be thin - December 19th 2010, 01:21 PM

I have done everything I can to be thin in the past. Anorexia is one of them. I have never let anyone find out about this so I was never stopped by doctors. The anorexia didn't work so well in the past so I stopped of my own accord. I am going to try it again. I am 5''6 possibly more and I am a size XXXin British sizes. No doctors have ever labelled me as over weight but I will be so happy if I am thin so I am becoming anorexic. Wish me luck x

NOOO!!! dont do that!!!! if you want to lose weight, go on a diet but dont become anorexic. its an eating disorder and its terrible. you will only gain the pounds back in the long run. just switch to a new eating lifestyle. maybe go vegetarian, or stop eating all processed foods.

I have tried all 'sensible' eating/diet options, literally. I can't get anything from doctors because they don't think I'm overweight. This is my only option

please hold on, its not the only option. go back to ur doctor and tell him you feel really insecure about ur weight, surely he'll giv u sum kind of advice as to how to feel betta about ur self and on how to lose weight if need be. if not then try eating healthily, eat alot more fruit and veg and drink plenty of water. giv up sweets and chocolates and crisp etc and be more aware about wat u eat. the weight wnt fall off in one night, it will take tym but u'll start to notice it soon. just go about it the healthy way huni, u know u can do this ..xx

Doctors are medical professionals. If they say you are not overweight, it means that you are not overweight. If you're concerned, try to get it checked out. But if you're not overweight, then there's nothing to be worried about. What matters most is who you ARE, NOT what you LOOK like. Click here for a site that I think will help you.

They have already said I'm not overweight but I still have to be thin to be happy. I've seen the operation beautiful stuff before and it doesn't help me. It just reminds me that I'm not pretty and I never will be

Re: Need to be thin - December 20th 2010, 08:26 PM

aw im so sorry you feel that way hun.. but you are beautiful you know, everyone is, in their own way. if you're really desperate then please just try to eat healthily, please dnt stop eating completely, coz in the long run you'll just put the weight back on. so its best to lose it gradually and healthily. im sure you're not overweight and you probably don't need to lose weight like the doctors have said, so maybe you should just try cutting down a little on food, instead of totally stopping. that may make you feel betta...x

I'm not beautiful at all and I'm not even aiming for that. I'll never have beauty I just have to be thin, if not I will have wasted my life. I have tried 'just cutting back' on food and it hasn't worked. Maybe I won't start eating again if it will just set me back. I found some sights that have really good tips for not eating.

Re: Need to be thin - December 20th 2010, 09:25 PM

dear, thinness doesn't provide happiness, you're mistaking your feelings. Diets don't work? what a surprise, knowinng that 95% don't. You need to have a size which is healthy for you, and that comes from the right lifestyle, which includes food. Eat balanced meals, take your time to, have moderated portions, don't forbid yourself any kind of food and do some exercise everyday. If you think you have enough self control to be anorexic, then you have enough to do this for sure.
With anorexia, you will not just become thin, you'll eventually look like a walking skeleton... and it won't even let you see.
By the way, anorexia just happen without you noticing it, it's not like one morning you wake up and you say I feel like being anorexic, no, and that's why when you realize you can die in any moment and you want to scape it, there's no exit door unless you are willing to cross the hell, because it's quite hard to fight against yourself to improve though it's worth it.
Finally I'll tell you many 'wannarexics'(don't mean to be rude, but you actually sound like that) end up being bulimics (from my experience, I tell you I'd rather be dead than into it again) or compulsive overeaters, and oh, true, you'll look pretty nice when all you have are bones... and lanugo, since your hair, teeth and nails will fall out. People will eventually disappear, you'll hurt everyone who loves you, you will always think you're fat even if you weight a f****** pound... because Eating Disorders take away your life, in every way.
Now be honest with yourself, is it worth it to fall into this because of your weight (which, on the other hand, is just the attraction Earth has over you)?
One last advice, work on your self esteem and you'll be happier as it increases
Stay safe.

You don't HAVE to be thin. There are plenty of people out there that will love you just the way you are.

I understand you want to be thin, but Anorexia does not make you thin. Anorexia is NOT beauty and its NOT perfection. I have just returned from inpatient treatment for anorexia. And I was tubed, now this is HORRIBLE and you really dont want that. Thing with anorexia is, you never win. You either die, live a horrible life being stick thin, or gain weight again. You have to be healthy in the end or dead.

^I'm no expert, but probably. Sounds to me like your body is having a physical reaction because it's not used to having food like that.

how can that make you happy? you know this isn't a pro-ana forum and you're being so triggering!!!! and, by the way, once you eat food you get 50% of the calories, even if you puke!
Please, stop this now that you are beginning so it'll be easier to get out of this hell, even knowing you won't listen to me, it's all I can say to help
