    I have Ednos, and it's hard,

    because I will go through long periods of starving and binging. My weight is constantly changing and I hate that. It's so hard to loose weight, in the last few months, I have only gained :( Ugh :( Is anybody the same ?

    Ednos And Want To Be Anorexic

    I would much rather be anorexic than ednos. I feel like ednos is not real because I am not losing weight. I hate it every day and I purge sometimes. I wish I could lock myself up in a cage with no food. I would be happy then.

    I am about to have 655 as my total for the day, because after I eat the baked potato I'm making I'll only have 145 calories to spare. (Gotta be 100 calories safe away from limit.)
