    so that I could buy their flea meds...well to weigh them I get on the scale holding a cat, then put the cat down and write down the difference. Well, when I did this I realized I have gained 15 lbs!! I am kinda freaking out over this and I've had a hard time eating since this...

    Haven't slept for three days in

    which I ate a few crackers. I feel a really nasty sour taste in my mouth that won't go away and everything hurts, because of the intense workout. Still... I'm too fat to be anorexic.

    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...
