well, i can tell you from experience, that just because you're not losing weight doesn't mean that you don't have an eating disorder.
I gained 15 pounds during the worst part of mine....
my new philosophy is (and as usual, i'm not a professional): if you're controlling your eating habits for any reason other than being healthy, you have an eating disorder.
if you think you might have a problem (and to me, it sounds like you have one), please go talk to someone.
take it from me, it's not worth it....one day, if you're like me, you look back and realize that while you were in the middle of trying to find yourself, you totally lost everything that you are.
: ok...well I don't know weather I have a eating disorder or not, but Well it all started out when I was in Cross Country and I felt like I needed to be better , and more skinny. I was 5 feet and weighed 105. That was last year. Now I weigh 95. Still 5 feet. I only eat 1 meal a day, supper. Because that is when I have to be with my famliy and I dont want them to think anything is wrong. But I dont eat much. I once went 1 whole day without eating, and the weird thing is...I wasnt even hungry. The next day I was hungry, but I didnt eat until supper. And I only had a potato and some water. And applesauce. And I dont usually eat that much for dinner, so thats all I eat in a day. But I dont think I have a problem because I dont seem to be loosing that much weight. I dont look horribly skinny. So I dont know whats going on. But can somebody PLEASE write back because I want some advice. Because now I am starting to feel that once I eat something, that it is going to make me really fat. Like tonight, I had a couple motzeralla sticks for supper and I feel like I have to throw up because I am full. But that is all I had, and whenever I eat something I feel like it cant go down. And I feel sick. So PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE write back and give me advice. thank you so much.
