    Today I'm restarting my fast.

    I binged this weekend while with some friends this time I will not give in for a whole month. I will drink water and only eat celery if I feel the urge to binge. I am 140 pounds and I'm 5'4. I hope I can stay strong this time

    I started to starve myself last week.

    My weight is getting too out of control and it's the only way I know how to lose weight.

    I'm Sharing My Story With You All! :D

    So my starving journey started May 2012 I was 250 pounds and was going back to the public school where I was tormented for being fat and gay. I HAD to lose weight. I stopped eating for a month and at the end of each month I'd 'reward' myself with a bag of grapes. I'd let that bag...

    for about six months now. I fast for a couple days then end up binging and then I start to fast again. it's a never ending cycle and I wish I could just reach my goal weight. I'm so ******* fat.

    I'll admit that I do this.

    It's been a problem of mine since like 8th grade, and I'm now almost done with 12th grade. Idk I guess it just gives me control. And when I'm depressed, I just don't eat. However that happens a lot living in my dads house. I am trying to recover but I just never win..

    I Love The Starved Feeling

    When I was in the 4th grade I started getting lots of boyfriends. This lasted until I was in 7th grade and boys no longer wanted to date me. I never did anything with them sexually or anything. They were just little elementary school boyfriends. Anyway. When I was in 7th grade...

    I'm 14 And I Starve Myself ( Texting Buddy?)

    I starve myself because to be pretty you need to be skinny. I need to loose 40 pounds. I need to be 85 pounds. I used to be anerexic, but then my parents find out and that is why I'm so overweight now. Anyone in the same position?

    I couldn't make myself eat today

    or most of yesterday and I am past the point of hungry, like I'm so hungry that I'm not hungry anymore. The thought of eating is just making me feel sick. And I can always stand to lose a few pounds. I'm already a skinny *****, but I could be skinnier.

    heavily restrict my carb and calorie daily intake as well as take pills to facilitate rapid weight loss. No one sees how little I eat and no one cares. I'm too fat for anyone to believe I have an ED so I guess this will keep going until I look like a stick, I really really want...

    I usually only eat 100 calories a day.

    I will feel horrible if I eat any more than that. It makes me happy when I don't eat. I really don't know why. I just love the feeling of my stomach being empty.

    When I'm depressed, it feels good not to eat--I tend to binge and then feel guilty about it.  I'll go a day or two without eating.  The pain in my stomach, the dizziness, it actually feels good.  I guess this would be considered non-purging bulimia and extremely...
