    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..

    Whatever, IDC. Tomorrow,

    I won't eat anything. I don't deserve it. No food for me tomorrow. I need to lose the weight I've gained today by eating like an stupid fat pig. I'm soooo disgusting. I'm so stupid. Ugh.

    I've started to starve myself more.

    At the moment I only go 24 hours without food. My mum makes me dinner and I have to eat it. Eating makes me feel sick and guilty. I'm always irritated and moody, but deep down I like being in control.

    I have been trying to fully commit to starving

    myself and I have been trying to eat less food since April 29th so I made a food log and now I am fully ready to stay committed. I have a plan to only eat 800-900 calories a day but I'm sure I will be persuaded casually so I will need others help! I really want to be skinny

    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 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 put on too much weight already

    and apparently I am overweight by a lot. It makes me feel terrible knowing that the fat goes to the wrong places I should fast for 3 days because I shouldn't be this overweight Being this overweight is not good for my health and active lifestyle

    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

    Does anyone else get like a high feeling

    when they don't eat for a while? Or if they just eat a little bit all day? Cause I sometimes don't eat all day or just snack a little bit and I get a dizzy-high feeling.
