I’m 14 and average height 5.4 and I weigh 9.1. I know I’m not light or underweight by recently I’ve read up about how you can suffer from an eating disorder and not be underweight. I’ve been struggling with my weight since I was around 11 thinking I’m fat I do a lot of dance so naturally I feel the pressure to keep up with all the other skinny ballerinas but I never really did anything about it until this time last year I started going on crash diets and I would lose weight and then put it back on I haven’t eaten chocolate since feb this year and I find myself restricting my food and food groups a lot. I eat one maybe 2 meals a day but only because I don’t want to cause my family any worry. And I haven’t eaten lunch since April. I weigh myself 2-3 times a day and each time I get on the scales I genuinely myself and start to cry. I have resulted into self harming but as I do 8 hours of dance a week it’s starting to get hard to hide. Things at school are difficult im in top set for everything but I’m starting to fall behind as all I can ever think about is weight and calories I know it’s got obsessive but I can’t stop I don’t want to think like this but then again I just want to be skinny and happy with myself. I’m scared people are starting to see my troubles and I don’t know what to do xx
