I'm in between 5'3 and 5'4 and i weigh 99-102 lbs. I don't eat breakfast or lunch, i rarely have a snack, and when it comes to dinner i usually have one serving. I hate my body, i hate my weight. am i anorexic? also, i hate eating because i feel guilty and disgusting and i hate myself after i eat.

Hey girl,

Don't be so hard on yourself--you need three meals a day to be healthy, and if you exercise and maintain a healthy lifestyle you will be fine! I'm not a doctor, so I can't tell you if you have an eating disorder, but because we want the best for you it's really important that you speak with a trusted adult such as a parent, teacher, guidance counselor or doctor about what you're going through.

MOD MOD MOD D':
I don't really know what I weigh, but I'm 13, and I'm like 5'3 or 5'4..Maybe 5'5 I don't know..But anyway, last time we got weighed for school I weighed like..___lbs, and I panicked! I'm afraid of being fat! I'm constantly not eating, then eating loads of junk food! I don't know what to do! Am I underweight for my age/height? If so, for whatever reason, I don't WANT to gain weight. I am afraid to see 100 and up on the scale! Is there any tips to fighting this fear? Please, please help me. I don't know what to do!

Hey girl,

If you're concerned about your weight-vs-height, you need to ask your doctor. But honestly, you do NOT sound overweight in any way! Remember, your age doesn't matter - you need a healthy weight for your body's height. So definitely talk to your doctor about what weight range is healthy for your frame. And focus on curing yourself of that junk food problem - even if you aren't overweight, binging on bad foods can make you feel horrible! Get moving with 60 minutes of exercise each day, whether it's jogging, swimming, playing soccer with friends, etc. And instead of "constantly not eating," instead eat well-balanced meals full of veggies, fruits, and lean meats throughout the day. That's the right way to get healthy and feeling good!! <3

I'm generally (or try to b most of the time) a very health concious eater. but today we got donuts for breakfast (happened about once a year, I had 3 gummies, a cheese Danish a chocolate milk. I felt really bad afterwards and felt a really strong urge to make myself throw it all up. I fought the urge but it scared me. I just felt the need to tell someone. any advice? btw, never felt like that b4




Hey babe! No matter how much you eat it's never a good idea to throw it up afterward. Instead promise yourself that you'll go for a longer run today and burn off the extra calories and fat that you ate. That will make you feel better. But if this only happens like once a year, it's nothing to sweat, just remember that. If you're a healthy eater most of the time, you'll be fine. Feel better! xoxo

MOD: Lately I've been restricting how much food I eat, and I've been telling myself to go without eating for a day or two to see if I could actually control myself. So far I haven't, and that frustrates me. This is a control issue. I recently got dragged out of a deep depression and am afraid I'm slipping into it again. My parents fight with my sister a lot and my mom called my sister a b**** for the first time ever today. She NEVER cusses. I don't have many symptoms like orange palms or bad circulation, but i admit that to an outside perspective it sounds really bad. However, today I ate more than I usually do. Do I have anorexia? And if I'm just in the early stages of it, should I go to my youth pastor? Because I can't go to my parents.




hey girl,

sounds like you are in a tough situation, but i am glad you are trying to seek help. I would suggest looking for a counselor or mentor if you know any one available (at school, extracurricular activities, church...).  It's always great to have someone to go to for advice.  Also, it is not wise to restrict yourself with food like that.  You need food for nutrients and energy for a healthy mind and body, and so no good will come out of depriving your body of that.   Trust me, learn to eat healthy foods and exercise regularly so that you can look and feel great.  If you learn to think of food as a source of fuel rather than comfort, you will start feeling a lot better and have more control.  Hang in there, and know that you have the strength to not let bad circumstances drag you down and you have the strength to be good to your body!

MOD: would you lose pounds if, on school days ONLY, you have an apple everday for lunch? And also excersise. Plz answerr




Because you would be eating less calories you were burning than you were working out, theoretically, YES- you would lose weight.  However, losing weight this way isn't smart, or safe.  You need well balanced meals to provide your body with the proper nutrients- proteins, carbohydrates, and even sugars! And, an apple can't give you all of that! Especially with school starting, you're going to need to be on your A game, and be wide awake during all of your classes! So, stick with packing a healthy sandwich, water, AND an apple... yum!

**MODD**
I'm kinda worrried. I'm afraid I might be becoming anorexic. I keep getting skinnier and a lot of people are noticing. I weigh 140lbs and I know that's overweight. I sometimes go a whole day without eating without realizing it. I'm cold a lot and I read that's a symptom of anorexia. And of the 21 meals you're supossed to eat a week, I only eat 14 at the most, but sometimes less. When I see myself in the mirror I feel proud of the weight I've lost, but I still feel fat and disgusting. My friends all tell me I'm perfect and have the perfect body. I never eat in front of any of my friends parents. And I haven't eaten in 2 days because everytime I try to, I feel really sick and can't eat. Do I sound like I have or am devolping anorexia?? Thank u.




Hey girlie, It sounds like you might have some dangerous eating habits. I think you should definitely talk to your parents or another adult if you're worried! Also check out this article! http://www.girlslife.com/post/2008/07/31/Dying-to-be-Thin.aspx
