    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 am currently on day 3 of no good

    and I have lost a total of 7 lbs already. I'm extremely proud of my results so far, but it's still not quite enough. I'm dropping weight but I don't see a change in my body yet.

    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?

    so far so good I'm not tempted, and every time I am I look in the mirror. I put my back ground on my phone to a girl who's got the perfect body. I did my morning work outs. I hope this time I don't end up binging.
