hi! my family seems to think I am anorexic and I guess I could be. The only thing is that I am not skinny. I'm seriously not kidding I'm fat... not like i think I'm fat but I'm really not... no I am fat. I weigh 119.. MAYBE 118 on a really good day and I'm a 5'6 female. I base my whole life on food and body image. i CONSTANTLY feel fat and gross and ugly even though my family and friends tell me otherwise. I feel like they just have to say that because their my friends and family. I eat a couple of strawberries for breakfast, an apple for lunch, and whatever the family meal is for dinner. I try to exclude carbs from my diet but it's kinda hard to do without my family getting suspicious. I am kind of a health freak though. I was always a chubby kid- weighing around 140 at my highest and I am now 12. I lost a lot of weight but I am struggling to get rid of these last 10-20 pounds. it just won't seem to come off no matter how healthy or little I eat or how much I excercise. i am in track Monday-Friday excluding Wednesdays, and dance Monday- Wednesday, and now softball 3-4 times a week. on top of that I was excercising and running almost every day and it was insane. I stopped that for a few weeks and I want to get back into it but I just can't seem to find the time or motivation to do so. I would estimate that I eat around 100 calories or so throughout the day and then maybe like 500-600 calories on average at dinner. I think that's kind of a lot actually. I just want to be skinny. that is all I think about. I will not eat anything after dinner no matter how hungry I am, but I find myself eating a lot at dinner because I don't eat THAT much throughout the day. I think that what I eat is perfectly safe and healthy but people think otherwise. I don't know, do you think I am anorexic? I wear all baggy clothes and clothes that will cover up my legs because I hate my thighs. I feel like they are huge. i am constantly thinking about my weight and just wanting to be skinny. I always look up how to get skinny and diet plans and excercises and weight loss stories online. I try to say I don't like things and that I'm not hungry to avoid eating things. I will not eat anything that is unhealthy unless it's something like pasta and I have to eat it because it's the only thing my family is having for dinner. even so, I will try to health it up as much as I can. Also, I have not been getting my period for about 5 months. all I want to do is feel pretty and skinny and confident no matter what I'm wearing or how much skin is showing. everyone says I'm skinny but believe me I'm really not. just please tell me if you think I am anorexic and what I can do to FINALLY lose weight.
