Me- Figure Skater. Must Be Thin.I am 16 years old and a junior level figure skater (not competing until i am a senior). I used to run cross country and track and i have a background with gymnastics and ballet. However, i am 5'3 and 117 lbs- and all of it seems to be in my thighs, or in my upper arms- all that flab! And its been a few months since i was weighed. I'm probably 160 by now or something! So, i need to stop eating for 17 days in order to lose 20 lbs. Then i'll eat a little fruit and veggie, excersize a lot, and then fast for 17 days again until i've lost 40 lbs. I really need that weight loss because figure skaters need to be skinny to do triple axels and such; you can't throw yourself in the air and spin if youre fat! DUH! Plus, i feel that every time i do a triple flip or lutz, my thighs jiggle and everyone thinks how fat I am.
I've been trying to starve myself, but its hard. I always want to eat food, and my parents set up traps- yummy steak, angel food cake, butter braids, chili- so i won't stop eating, so out of guilt i'd throw up some of my food, trying to get it all out. But what i really want, and need, is to starve myself. Just a couple pounds. I won't become anorexic or anything, obviously! Just enough to get to my target weight. I realize you can't just, BOOM, stop eating, so i will chew gun and eat teeny tiny pieces of food throughout the day until i can go without eating at all.
Yesterday, i ate only:
1) half a peach for breakfast
2) piece of gum
3) 1/4 a bowl of cereal
Today i only ate:
1) one packet of oatmeal (130 calories)
2) 1 piece of gum (15 C)
3) 1 mini-milky way bar (38 calories)
4) 1/5 a cup of beans, but i threw it up afterwards.
The mily way bar i was forced to eat, thanks to my yearbook advisor who told me i had to eat, so he gave it to me and when i asked to go to the bathroom he said no, wait until yearbooks over, so i couldn't throw it up. My stepdad made me eat beans, but i turned on the shower, flushes the toilet, and played radio music loud while i threw up in the sink. I'm not sure if he heard me becaue he was watching television.
I really hope i can have the will to starve until i have lost weight to do my axels.
