    Has It Really Come to This?

    At what point did I decide to obsess over every ounce of food and liquid I take in and degrade myself continually for not having the "will power" to starve myself and run myself ragged?  Is this what it is to be a size 12 woman in America?  It seems no matter...

    E.D

    I believe that my eating disorder started by my obsession of couting calories. I started with nothing too small, but then when my mind took over I wouldnt allow myself to go over 300 a day. Now I know the calories in most things and shockl people with my knowledge.

    I keep myself aware of my calorie intake using

    an app on my phone. Just being aware of how much I'm eating has helped me to eat less and lose weight.

    My Obsession

    I count them every day. The moment I wake up and have some breakfast, I have to count exactly how many calories are in what I'm eating. Usually for breakfast I won't eat more than 200 calories. For lunch, I give myself a little more leeway to eat something more fulfilling, and...

    I Am Wretched

     I try to keep it at 1200 per day. I wanted to get down to 1000, but I read somewhere that at my height and age I really shouldn't eat below 1200, lest my muscles begin to deteriorate, thereby lowering my metabolism. The recommended daily intake for my size/age is 1500...

    Allergic To Calories

    I don't understand how someone could not count calories. Nothing pains me more than to go over my safe limit. Even if it's by one raspberry which is one calorie. Normally that leads to purging which I'm trying so hard to stop.

    Mountain Dew Mistake!

    So I buy a 1 L Mountain Dew, and I see 170 calories on it. Considering the size of the bottle. I thought 170 calories wasn't bad. So I bought it. But once I get home and start drinking it, I read the text under 170 calories and it said 170 calories PER SERVING. And there's 3...
