    (TW//Weight) Today I went to a checkup.

    I was really worried because I haven't been to the doctors in over a year, and I had assumed that in my recovery I had gained enough weight to not be considered anorexic anymore. That should be a good thing, but just because your body doesn't show it, doesn't mean you don't...

    Hi, I am anorexic. With my older stories,

    you would think that I am still fat, but no. In fact a lot of people tells me that I have a great body and that they would like to have mine. But that is not the problem, the problem is that I don't believe it. I still see myself fat, and all the time I am worrying about food...

    An Open Plea to Ana's Everywhere...

    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...

    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...

    I just can't bring myself to believe it because when I look in the mirror, all I see is a fat, chubby girl. I weigh myself twice a day. If I lost weight, good, but I keep trying to lose more. If I haven't lost any weight, a try even harder to lose weight. If I gained weight, I...
