I Am Not Anorexic Yet But I Really Want To Be

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 145 People

    you want to be thin,

    but not anorexic. anorexic people have mental illness, no matter how thin they are they will always think that they are fat. thus no happiness and satisfaction for their body image. thats depressing

    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...

    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.

    I didn't eat for a few days

    because I'm too poor to afford groceries, so I lost four pounds. I was so happy. But then, I had a can of soup and gained it all back. I felt awful...I'm 170 pounds and with my illness I'm not supposed to be this heavy...I'm disgusted...

    I miss it when I used to be.

    .. I still skip meals, but not at all like I used to. I think about going back to doing it everyday. Lately I have been thinking more than ever... And in the past week I have averaged like a meal or less... I really want to go back to skipping days worth of food, I felt better...

    This thread makes me sad.

    The ignorance of everybody wanted to be anorexic is frustrating.

    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'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.

    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...
