I just wanted to add that if you feel you might become anorexic... don't go there, please... it is NOT worth it. Read the book "Wasted" by Marya Hornbacher, she describes very vividly what anorexia/bulimia can do to your body, your mind... and is not worth it. I am not saying losing wight per se is bad, but when it becomes obsessional... and you really become anorexic, you will not only lose weight but also your energy, your joy in any other activities but dieting, probably many of your frineds because you will withdraw into yourself, etc... NO I DON'T mean to scare you, just to WARN you. I am NOT saying losing weight is bad, but please don't go into anorexia. It is such a sad state to be in, in the bginning it seems SO exciting but then... after a while you feel so stuck and regretful... I got over it again and it IS possible, but you don't even want to go there... please...
