I Struggle With An Eating Disorder

    It's Still Something Of A Battle.

    It's hard to know where it started. I remember always being vaguely envious of thin girls. I spent middle school being very short and somewhat chubby. When I was about 14, I hit a giant growth spurt and thinned out. I remember looking in the mirror, seeing my ribs, and being...

    I struggle with my image,

    honestly hate the way I look. I don't even know why I am like this. I hate every inch of my body. Its like an obsession to be thin or something.

    Hard To Talk About It....

    My struggle with an Eating disorder is so hard to talk about, and its even harder to admit to. People think fat people can't have an eating disorder, but that is not true. its like saying Happy people can't get sick, it happens all the damn time, some people just can't see it. I...

    It looks like I am already back to "normal",

    for the most part. I gained back 5 pounds, and I'm not terribly thrilled about it, but I am not as concerned about it as I would have been when I was still overcome by my relapse. I have been eating closer to 1,300 calories a day each day, and I have not been working out as...

    It's pretty complicated,

    and I won't bore you with all of the back story, but I have been struggling with an eating disorder since I was 13 years old. I think the reason that it has never completely taken over my life is because I am a strong person. I go through phases of eating very, very little and...

    So, it's definitely getting real.

    Full blown relapse. I actually purged tonight. I guess this is really happening.

    I debated wether to join this group

    or one that uses the term "might have" an eating disorder. I've studied it. Logically I know I do. But sometimes I feel just utterly paranoid about it. I'm trapped in a world within that makes me feel paranoid about the world around me. I say I have one, I accept it, then I deny...

    I know I already wrote about anorexia

    but i need to clear something about its partner, Bulimia. When you first think about Bulimia you probably see a girl eating an abnormal amount of food then sticking her skinny fingers in her throat to purge. But not all bulimics are girls, not all of them are skinny and not all...

    I'm Fat And I Hate It

    I have been a chubby girl all my life. During my teenage years I had lost weight and looked good for a while but I still felt fat. My mother was  constantly on my back about my weight and she made me feel worthless, but when I see my photos of those days I think what the...

    My Struggle With Eating

    It all started the beginning 10th grade , but all was connected to a much earlier time in my life. In 7th grade I was striving to get my black belt in martial arts and once I reached this goal I wanted a new challenge. My dad told me about wrestling. Even though I was a girl in...
