You wrote the aim of this blog is to share experiences- I hadn't eaten anything for 57 hours. I was extremely dizzy, felt very exhausted (when not energetic). What hurt the most was my chest, specifically my heart. Then my stomach. I lost 4 cm in waist and 6 in hips. I also lost 4 kg. Then I ate, felt miserable so I self harmed. And then I exercised for 2 hours.
That’s really not healthy. Eat some fruit and veggies, and then rest.
Many people don't realize that binge eating is an eating disorder too. It annoys me.
It is very much an eatin disorder. An eating disorder means that you have a distorted view on food, and distorted eating habits. That doesn’t mean you have to starve or throw up to have one. Binge Eating is just as dangerous and unhealthy as anorexia and bulimia.
I am 5'2 and around 103lb. Everyone tells me I'm incredibly skinny. I feel fat ALL the time. My stomach and legs are really big to me. My best friend is only an inch shorter than me but her metabolism is so fast that she is 85lb. I wish I was like her. I sometimes only eat dinner or don't eat at all, but then I eat so much the next day. I NEVER purge though. Do I have an eating disorder?
I’m not a doctor, so I can diagnose you with an eatin disorder.
But love, I’d kill to be that small. I’m 5’4” and about 155 :/
if i dont lose 25 pounds by february, im thinking of killing myself. i cant live with this anymore & i dont know what to do
Please don’t kill yourself.
Think: if you started today, you’d have about two months. That’s eight weeks. The healthy amount to lose a week is two pounds. That’s approximately sixteen pounds you could lose by then, and you’d have an easier time keeping it off. Just eat healthy, an excercise. You don’t need to kill yourself.
Another question. My mother keeps telling me about losing more weight, sometimes I feel like I'm not good enough for her or like I'm not skinny enough for society; the reality is that due to being bullied in the past and lost 12kg to become more healthy due to a health problem I don't want to talk about, I still feel like 'I'm fat' like everytime I eat something I start kicking to myself, I try to hide everything to my parents since they never supported me in my decisions
I don’t really know what your questions is, but 12kg… That’s about 24 pounds, right? That’s really good. You ahouldn’t kick yourself over that.
Do you think that being 'skinny' or just 'thin' is the way to get accepted by society? I am 20 years old, 1.62m and 70kg and I know some people will tell me about 'losing weight', so far I've lost 12 kg and I feel like I'm still fat and not good enough for anybody. I never tried an eating disorder before but I used to be bullied by my peers when I was in high school, what are your views about body types, and the obsession of society for being skinny?
Honestly, in this society, no matter what you do you won’t be accepted. You’re either too fat, too skinny, too ugly, too beautiful, too straight, too gay, etc. it’s fucked up, but this is the world we live in. As long as you’re happy with yourself, and you surround yourself with people who love you, fuck what society says.
every time I eat, I feel like a failure, I want to purge or exercise but my parents are always watching me. I sneak upstairs to weigh myself sometimes and even though I only gained a ounce, I swearI feel the fat rolls. Even if I lost weight, I stil feel fat and ugly
I hate that feeling. But I assure you; you’re a beautiful person. You just need to start believing that.

My names Rhianna. I live in a very diverse town, one I wont name. Ever since I was in 7th grade, I’ve had two eating disorders. They compete with each other constantly. I am both an over-eater, and anorexic.
My over-eating would be described to some people as simply binging, but the fact is that its not. It like I’m on a constant binge, twenty four hours a day.
But then, when I start to get depressed about my ever-rising weight, I don’t eat. Well, i try not to, but my parents constantly nag at me, that im not eating enough. They literally treat me like a child, not letting me leave the table until I eat my damn food. I’ll later go and puke the contents of my stomach out. The next day, my over-eating will kick back into place.
I don’t know how to go about maintaining a healthy weight. I’ve never been below 140 pounds, since I was 10. I’m 14 right now, and weighh 180. I feel disgusting, ugly, and just plain gross. I feel like no one loves me enough because of how gross my body is.
I don’t know what to do, and I’m super scared.
Not that you can help-I just thought you might wanna know my story.
I don't know wether I have an eating disorder or not, for the past two years I've been in a cycle of starving and binging, I get the most majority symptoms of anorexia and bulimia. After a binge I get a lot of guilt and shame, like no self control, I feel incredibly bad about myself, then I go back onto 'track' and fast and restrict for a couple of weeks until something triggers me then I binge, it's like a cycle. I was just wondering if you knew this was just bad eating habits or something else
You have a lot of symptoms, but I am not a doctor and over the internet I couldn’t possibly determine whether you have one or not. All I can say, is many of the signs you described I experienced when I was developing an eating disorder however I got better before it got worse. Try talking to someone who knows you about this, they might have a better perspective. It is definitely bad eating habits, I couldn’t determine whether it is anything more without actually meeting you sorry.
I am a person who is addicted to self harm. I cut and burn myself, although no one knows about my burning. I have been hospitalized once for cutting and attempt in suicide. Right when I got out, I really wanted to change. I learned that I harmed myself because I hate myself. I am medically over weight, maybe even obese. So I started a diet, and I maybe eat one meal a day, and I usually purge it. This has been going on for 2 weeks, and I’m starting to harm myself again as well. My body aches right after I eat, and I feel like it can’t handle food anymore. I didn’t mean to do this to myself, and it just makes me hate myself more. I don’t want to be hospitalized again. I can’t go through that again. I can’t tell my family and I don’t want to talk to my therapist about it. I’m just so ashamed. I did this to myself and I don’t know how to go back. I’m just so lost, I might be worse than before. I am starting to scare myself and I don’t know what to do.
I am one of the new co-owners of this blog. My name is Tiarra, and I run http://fromonecuttertothenext.tumblr.com/http://andillhaveyouknowimscaredtodeath.tumblr.com/ and http://worthlesshopelesssick.tumblr.com/ I am 17 years old, and I live in the US. I’ve been struggling with depression for years, and have a cutting and starvin addiction. I suffer from body dysmorphic disorder as well. I know my life hasn’t been as bad as others, but my problems are still very real to me. I know what it’s like to feel like there’s no one there, and that all hope is lost. What I want to tell you is that you are all beautiful, strong, unique, and priceless individuals. And if you get need anyone to talk to, all 3 of my other ask boxes are open, plus this one. Be strong, lovelies.
I apologise for not posting anything last night but something really bad happened which I don’t want to talk about. Thinking about it, I don’t think I will be posting anything in a long time because to be quite honest, it’s not helping me. I am trying to become fit and healthy. This blog just doesn’t help.
If anybody would like to help run the blog by making posts then please contact me. If not, I will be deleting the blog.
It’s been a while but I’m back! I’ve got quite a few posts I’ve got ideas for but any more suggestions would be amazing. Remember: these posts are about your experiences, you can also submit your own story and I’m thinking about making posts on recovery to help people? I don’t know whether that’s a good idea or not. More posts will be up next week, keep them submissions coming!
Your blog really helps me, to see that there are others. I'm not glad that others have an ED... you know what I mean? I always feel lonely, but then the voice in my head tells me that I'm fat. I don't know what I want to say.... Thank you<3 sorry my English is so poor.
Thank you. I’m really glad it helps you, you are not alone <3 And your English was good :)
I'm 5'6'' and I was 122lbs, now I'm 102 but I never totally starved myself... when I did I just got fat (from the 110 to these 122lbs) then I started counting calories and eating less calories than I actually need. What do you think? (My english sucks, sorry)
Sorry I would like to help but I don’t really understand what you’re asking me. Maybe try and explain a bit more?
