    Fatter Than You

    0
    My boyfriend wants me to reactivate my facebook for him because that's the only way we can talk when we're not around each other. I deactivated it in the first place because it makes me miserable seeing all my friends who are more successful than me, prettier than me and skinner than me. I hated how I would compare myself to these people I "loved". I know that if I reactivate it I will just spend...

    In a Bad Place

    4
    Today is one of those days where I'm completely regretting the decision to recover. I can't fit into clothes I bought a month ago. I hate looking into the mirror. Looking at my classmates in person and on social media makes me want to cry because they all look happy, beautiful, and thin. And I know outward beauty "doesn't matter" but it's really hard to believe that when the rest of the world is...

    Repetitive thoughts

    Hello!  Thanks in advance for the support.So my anxiety often has to do with repetitive thoughts.  I frequently think about what I ate, how much I ate, calories I've consumed, what my weight is, how often I've exercised, etc.  I remind myself that society has brainwashed me by teaching me there is only one definition of beauty - I know this to not be true and I don't judge anyone else this...

    I ate, I had something this morning, 200 calories and I can feel it sitting in my stomach and the number just continues to repeat in my head. 200, 200, 200, 200, 200, over and over. I want to go run and work it off but I know I shouldnt, I've been incredibly faint lately and I'm afraid of passing out in the heat of the day. Looking for support that I havent just made a huge mistake..

    My Struggle

    6
    I'm relatively new to this and I've decided that I need help, so I joined this support group in hopes of meeting people that struggle with the same things that I do and learning as much as I can from them on how to overcome. I won't let myself eat and it's torture, but every time I think of it I feel like the world will come crashing down on me.. any words of wisdom?

    Feeling low and feel like binge eating.

    3
    For the last week I have had the feeling to binge eat. And fighting with my sister doesn't help when she wants to say hurtful things to me. But it doesn't matter. I have been pretending to be happy when I'm not, and my family, friends and when I am at work. But they are starting to notice that something is wrong with me. I can't make this feeling go away and I haven't talked about it until now....

    Birthdays

    4
    It's my birthday and I wish I could just enjoy the day, but I'm dreading it. I'm so worried about all of the treats people are going to give me and all the food I'll be surrounded by. I'm praying I can get through this day and try to enjoy it a little bit

    Happiness

    2
    Why do I think food will make me happy? Or that being think will make me happy? I know that these things won't actually make me happy, but my irrational side has been coming out a lot lately and I'm just trying to understand my thinking.

    Awful

    5
    I came home and binged... I feel terrible about it. I was exhausted and starving and my feet were/are throbbing with pain. I seriously disgust myself sometimes. I'm trying to regroup, trying to drink lots of water (because I am seriously dehydrated) and rest/ice my feet... But I feel so ashamed of what I just did. I'm sorry.

    Failure

    7
    No matter how far I come, I always emphasize my failures. I had such a good week. I was eating so healthy (and real portions!!) and was on the right track, but today I caved. I don't know what triggered me, but I couldn't help myself and ended up binging and purging. I spent the next hour putting myself down event though I know that just makes things worse. I just want to be healthy again. I'm...

    Frustrated with Family Circumstances

    3
    I'm feeling very frustrated and out of control. I've recently been on vacation, which came with some serious jet lag. Needless to say, my schedule has been very messed up, and I've had MANY unplanned sweets. I have figured out how to give myself permission for occasional splurges, but after a few weeks full of them, I felt disgusted with myself. After another binge, frustration, and forgiveness,...

    I'm fat.

    4
    I hate being told I'm fat. I used to look in the mirror and see a beautiful girl. Now I see everything that's wrong with me. I feel embarrassed to eat in public because I feel like everyone is staring at me. The "dear fat people" video on youtube destroyed me. After that I made myself throw up. I don't know what to do. I just feel fat.
