Reading your post was like reading my diary. I am 36 and I suffer with anorexia and bulimia. I have suffered every day for 7 yrs. I hate this , it consumes my life. I do not eat more then 1000 calories a day, and there are days I cant stop eating, I will eat so much my stomach bloats then I am disgusted with myself so I go vomit. I weigh myself at least 4 times a day. I will measure my waist every morning and every night. I am so mad last summer I weighed 102 and now I weigh 103 and that makes me sick. I am 5'1 and where a size 1 and I hate looking at myself in the mirror, I see fat and nasty and think of all the lipo I need. Then when I see a picture of myself, I cry because I look so sick and skinny. I am a single mom to 3 amazing kids and I dont want them to suffer from this. I work full time and go to school, I feel like I have no control of anything but my calories. I wish I had the answer for you, but I need it too!View Thread
I am 36 and a single mother to 3 of the most loving and beautiful kids ever! My problems started around 4 yrs ago. My ex cheated on me while I was pregnant with our daughter and after I had her. I started to feel ugly and fat and noticed by decreasing my calories for the day I started to drop weight. I have always been a thicker girl so when I got into a single digit clothing size I was so excited. So I kept going. I went from a size 12 to a 3 in a year. While I was pregnant with my son also my last child, I was restricitng calories and vomiting almost everyday. I was very lucky that he is healthy! I hate myself for what I did to him. 7 weeks after having him, I was in a size 2. My ex broke up with me and kicked me out of our home when I was 6 months along with our son. So I was extremly depressed too. I am now a size 1/2 to a 1. I wear an xs shirt. I am 5'1 and 103. I look into the mirror and still hate what I see. I still restrict my intake to 1000 calories a day and still vomit at least 3 times a week. I am also on prozac and wellbutrion.Please any advice I will take . I do not want this for my kids and do not want to die and not see them grow upView Thread
