In Response To: How much weight can i loose by a week (kristin)
this is a response to kristen... a freshman in college. you posted your comments on june 15 @16:42:30.
I just wanted to say to you... I struggle with anorexia but it has gotten a lot better in recent years. My struggle is a lot like yours. My advice to you is DO NOT LET YOUR MOTHERS OPININON DICTATE HOW YOU SEE YOURSELF. If you want to eat something that has some fat in it and sugar or whatever... eat it. I know this is hard to hear because you seem so fixated on your body but believe me the further you get into this obsession with losing weight the harder it gets to get out of it!
I used to go in spurts... started when I was younger. my step mother was like your mother... thin and got on me about my eating. I was never a big girl but still got repremanded! Needless to say... my periods of anorexic behavior would only be in times of stress or depression. It was a way to control something in my life, when everything else seemed to be going wrong... and I thought a way to stay skinny. The thing that drew me to your posted comments was the fact that you want to not eat and excersize a lot. That is what I used to do. Take it from me... it isn't healthy. your body needs fuel to push you through the excersize. I wound up with some damage to my body because of how I treated it. Luckily I've come a long way since then and I don't let stress or depression keep me from eating sensibly anymore. ( I have days where I don't want to eat, but usually I have good people around me that know I struggle with this and get me to eat... hey food tastes good and it makes you feel better cause you need it!) Anyway... hang in there. My heart goes out to you and all the people on this page. It's a nasty disease. It's too bad that at times we can't funnel all that energy into healthy eating and taking care of ourselves instead of hurting ourselves.
