***newbee***

hi there i have never used a forum before but i think i need to on this occasion. i am 23 years old i am 6ft 2 and weight 135lbs i have been trying to deal with an eating disorder now for about 6 months.

I have found it really difficult i am currently going through counselling it does help but i am finding it hard to refeed my bmr is about 1600-1700 but most of the time i eat about 1300-1400 i feel like i am just killing myself i keep saying to myself stop it you can eat what you want.

the main thing is i am scared of putting loads of weight on. i am scared that if i eat one takeaway i will become fat i know it sounds stupid but its my subconsciousness mind telling me this.

i did start ok i was over weight i did weigh 270lbs 16 months ago i then went on a diet when i got to 182lbs i was happy and said thats it this is when i think the eating disorder took full control of me. it took me to about 145lb before i realized what i was doing.

sorry for the sob story just looking for general advice and support if possible.

Thanks guys

Re: ***newbee***

I'm glad to hear that you're going to counseling. I just wanted to tell you that I totally understand what you are saying, and try not to be so hard on yourself. It's really not your fault. Keep correcting your mind and your actions when you know that you are not thinking properly and want to eat less than you should. It's not easy, I know!
I pray you will have a full recovery, I hear that you are struggling right now. You are not alone.

blessings, Sue
