Question what does this sound like?

hi..im new to here!!

I am 17 years old and am 5'3..
i think i might have an eating disorder, but I'm not sure. This all began in august. i was comfortable with the way i was looking and was really depressed in general..i began SH 4 months ago.

anyway,
I began to eat a lot less. i usually only have dinner during the week and throw my lunch out at school. i will take one bite so people don't suspect anything. I just really don't want to gain weight and see myself for bigger than what i really am.. i already am underweight when this all began too. I count calories and if i feel i ate to much in a day l i will try to purge and sometimes do. I know its wrong but like i just can't help itt. i know i have to eat more but when i go to pick up food i feel like people are watching me and judging me. I just don't feel comfortable eating and get really overwhelmed when I'm in food stores. I constantly am moving around too for those family dinners where i won't feel as guilty because every calorie counts for being burnt for me. I just can't stop thinking about this though. i plan out how much I'm going to eat and weigh myself at least 7 times a dayy. my urges to eat are high when i see such yummy food sitting around but i refuse to take it because then i know i will feel out of control and guilty...even if it's just a little piece of a cookie.

I lost a couple of pounds..which is okay i guess..i still see room for improvement..

I still don't think i have an eating disorder and maybe it's just a phase.
what do you think?

I think that you KNOW THAT'S IT'S AN EATING DISORDER, however for whatever reason do not want to get professional help in order to correct it. At least tell someone you trust about this. You can change since its relatively early, so don' t wait any longer.

Hello jjay07x,

You are relatively young,which can be used to your advantage.

As you are noticing disordered eating patterns now,progression will certainly appear down the road.

Now's the time to head it off at the pass.

There's nothing to be ashamed of,with respect to having an eating disorder.

Please do what you need to do for you,now........

before 10,20 or even 30 years pass and your quality of life further dissipates;which in turn may bring about other health concerns.

Please find the strength to take care of yourself now.

Respectfully
Phoenix

Re: what does this sound like?

This sounds exactly like myself when my eating disorder first began. You can stop this before it goes any further <3 I know you're scared to talk to someone about it, I was too. I finally came clean to my friends though and they were able to help me talk to my parents and find a therapist to talk to. It sounds really scary, and it's hard to even admit outloud that something may be wrong. You might cry and that's TOTALLY okay. I practically balled my eyes out and as it turned out my friends already knew something was going on. it's okay to ask for help, and it's okay and actaully good that you are realising something's up now. I hope that you can find the strength to talk to someone, and if you ever want to chat I'm here too! I wish the best for you, take care of yourself girly.

Beeze
