    It Feels Good

    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...

    I'm skinny, but recently I've been gaining

    weight due to eating unhealthy stuff and eating a lot due to stress. I recently visited my older sister and she slapped me on my thighs as I was getting ready to sit down near her and she told me "Oooh, girl! You are getting thick. What have you been doing?" Since then, I have...

    I have a habit of starving myself,

    it's like I can't eat until my hands turn purple, or I don't eat until I feel sick. Other girls my age can just eat and eat, I could do that also when I was younger, but it's like I can't anymore. I hate feeling that way, I mean I never planned not to eat, I just lost my...

    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'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..

    this has been going on since around July and it got really bad, I started off only wanting to lose a few pounds and then I just didn't want to stop. I feel so in control and I love the feeling I get after seeing that my weight dropped. I just hope one day I can be pretty

    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.

    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.

    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...

    I've been starving myself

    since the summer. I cannot deny that it helped me lose lots of weight. I normally have a little portion of food for lunch (low calories of course) per day, at first it was hard but I got used to it, I'd do anything to become skinny
