I gained 20 pounds from my 6th-7th grade year, and my best friend who I absolutely admired was 72 (or 92, I dont remember but she was underweight) while I was 106 I started noticing fat, skipped breakfast in the morning, and gave away my lunch money, I skipped lunch ALOT so she didnt notice till I started going to the cafeteria with her. Then my grandparents wanted to kick me out of the house, and I would occasionally skip dinner to avoid them but I never could go more than 24 hours without food. My friend didn't start caring till 8th grade because 7th grade she was busy trying to change my mind about suicide, in honesty I was never fat. Chubby when I was small, a little chunky in 7th grade but never fat.View Thread
This does sound like an eating disorder. But dang, you have alot of willpower. I suggest you try to think through with you're thoughts and try to figure out what the problem is. If you can't, get your friends and family, try support groups, and then go to a psychologist. Support groups are the best thing!View Thread
I have been working my ass off for the past three days Because I'm paranoid of gaining weight. But today I'm extremely tired, I'm starving, but I don't have the strength to get up and eat lunch. >.> <.< oh well.
I've been being pushed to join a sport of some kind in high school but what kind of good exercise summer programs can I go too during summer? I'm currently 14 and most camps stop at 13. I really want to get into something so I won't have to be up for 3 hours exercising because I'm paranoid of gaining weight,
On the other hand, although I've been trying to lose it healthily and broke the habit of skipping meals. My symptoms of calorie counting, fear of gaining weight, weighing on the scale, and excessive unreasonable goal for weight loss have increased dramatically. Maybe my body doesn't feel like it's dying, but my mind does,View Thread
