    Skinny.

    There's no such thing as "too skinny". I want people to notice my weight loss. It's an achievement, and I won't stop till I get it.

    I love the feeling of starving.

    I think my parents are getting suspicious and I'm scared. I don't want to gain weight, I like seeing my bones.

    I know I posted about this before,

    but people don't understand the struggle of getting ready or standing for hours in front of the mirror criticizing yourself over every little perfection. Anorexia is a mental disorder and it is impossible to beat. Everytime you lose weight , you're still unhappy no matter what...

    Updating... Anorexia has caught hold of me again

    since a long time. I don't feel like eating/drinking anything, I enjoy that feeling of emptiness in my stomach, that's my way of feeling happy.. Whenever you approach food, you hear that voice inside of your head telling you "You will be FAT if you eat that", "Eat lesser to be...

    I have been battling anorexia

    I have been having eating disorders

    for more then ten years, which isnt that uncommon. But I'm a guy. Beeing male and having eating disorders makes everyday life complicated in a different way, as a guy people expect you to want to eat lots and be "manly". I just want to be thin. I hate it.

    The Fight Against Ana

    I will not say "I used to be anorexic". That would be a false statement, once anorexia takes over, you will always be anorexic, the thoughts will always be in the back of your head. I am a survivor of anorexia I will say. When I became anorexic, it was just an extreme diet to...

    Look, I'm the exact opposite of anorexic. My only eating disorder is that I like food and drink a little bit too much. Yep. I'm fat. Some days it's hard being the fat guy. Others, I wouldn't trade it for anything. I was once well north of 330lbs... Today, I am down to 280lbs...

    pounds. I've found anorexia so hard but recently I've been a lot better. I've got my weight upto where I am and I'm feeling a lot healthier. Obviously I have my bad days, but it's too be expected. Ultimately I think I'm finally beginning to win my battle.
