    Well this might not be the right topic

    for me because I was anorexic and bulimic for years. But I remember when I first started out I wanted to be anorexic. Like it was some prize. But then I found out it wasn't. I don't regret it at all. In fact I miss it! I'm recovered now. Almost two years. I still struggle. But I...

    I'm always concerned about my weight

    and sometimes it's all I can think about. I spend my free time looking at skinny girls on Pinterest and I want to be just like them. I also look at diet tips and sometimes I skip meals. I can go a day without eating and just drink water. I don't feel hunger or sick and I makes...

    is it weird that I envy aneroxic girls?

    that I love the way the ribs look so elegant and fragile and beautiful I want my outside to look like my insides feel. I feel huge and I'm trying not to eat and then I binge and I'm afraid to do the purge part. then I starve again then I end up eating because I hate turning down...

    I'm a fat lazy *****

    who does nothing but sit on the computer all day. Exercise does nothing to help me lose weight--not to mention it's ******* boring and takes a hell of a long time. Starvation sounds like a fantastic idea. Maybe soon I won't be medically obese.

    An eating disorder should not be something you

    want. When I had anorexia, I did things that brought me closer to dying every day for two years. Recovery made me appreciate my life and you all should flaunt your individuality too.

    Okay so here's the deal.

    I don't want a buddy really... More like a coach or mentor or instructor. I'm not asking for someone to give me a disease, considering I already fast and purge and all of that horrible stuff. I just need someone to guide me and tell me what to do and be strict with me. I NEED to...

    My parents think that I need to gain weight

    and that I'm way to thin but I couldn't disagree with them more. I'm scared to become anorexic but I don't know what else to do. I'm tired of waking up and feeling fat. I can eat as healthy as the food my parents can afford to buy but that's not helping my weight at all. I also...

    I've always been the "bigger" friend.

    Right now I'm 5"4 146 pounds but all the weight goes to my stomach and none to my hips or butt. I try to not eat but I always give in thinking "a little more wont hurt" help! I need to lose weight. Really bad. I want to be really skinny.

    Anorexia is not a weight-loss strategy.

    It's a mental illness. Do you want to be unhealthy? Tired constantly? Lose your hair? Be constantly monitoring your body? Worry about food all the time? Be unable to have a normal meal with friends? Anyone who has had anorexia will tell you that it's hell. Saying you want to be...

    I hate to see this. Ive had problems with

    anorexia for over years now. And the only thing i want to tell now is; it doesnt make you happy in the end. It makes you even worse then you were before. It destroys your whole life. It's not a "lifestyle" you really want. Your choice to believe me or not.
