Hi everyone, I am 15 years old and have had some type of eating disorder for a year and a half now. Last year it started when I noticed my sister gaining weight, and I thought to myself I do not want to be her. If you are aware of weight watchers i limited my diet to 15 points per day, which is about 700 calories. I was already thin so it was easy to hide. I would not eat anything all day and then when my parents came home i could just eat all of my points at dinner. This started to calm down a little to where i stopped losing wieght and now my friend and i have made an agreement to loose weight. I am happy but a I know it is not a good thing. Our diet now is oatmeal in the morning and a salad for dinner. am going to get a health problem from it? right now I am 5' 10" ( i know tall) and 120 lbs. I guess i do this because everyone has always said i would be the perfect model, and i would be embarrased if they stopped saying that if i gained weight.... But what i am really confused on is I want to loose weight and i am great not eating all day but when i get back from school i just eat everything in the pantry ( never purge I can't) So I just stay the same weight. Do i even have an eating disorder, b/c i eat and i would feel stupid if i went to get help and i was fatter than everyone else there...Yeah sorry this was so long

p.s. to all of you moms that are worried about your child, if you are worried then most likely they do have a problem so just take them to a psychiatrist!! it makes it soo much easier for us. also, when you do,don't get the whole family to go, make it just you and her. don't go in the appt. with her and dont ask for her weight!!! trust me on this one. Or, you should tell a counselor at her school to call her down to talk (without you there) during school...

You DO have an eating disorder. At 5'10, you should weigh at least 140 pounds. Don't think the attention--everyone saying you would be the perfect model--is worth it. Speaking from experience, you will do what you want. You won't stop until YOU choose to. Please--choose to soon

If you don't eat during the day but then eat all the stuff you have at house why don't you just eat through out the day. you don't have to eat big things just eat a small portion. It makes no diffrence when you eat it you will stay the same weight. And on the point that you don't weigh what you should.....it doesn't really matter that you are under weight. that doesn't tell you that you have an eating disorder. I am 15, 5'4'', and only 95 lbs. At 15,5'4'' i think i should wiegh about 110 lbs. I think you should tell your counsler at school and ask for information on eating disorders. this is way to long i know...... sorry!!!!

hey i so totaly agree on what u said in the last paragraph. i've been anorexic for i and a half years and i tried to purge a couple of times. it hurt me. i do the same as you. eat nothing at school and binge after school. i lost a stone.

i want to stop but i keep telling myself i need to lose more weight to get help. i dont want my mum to be with me if i get help. i'm really scared.

can you talk to me on msn or can u eamil me. i really need a friend.
