so this is my situation: I have always had a difficult relationship with my body due to being a chubby kid and pressure from my family to lose the extra weight from a young age. Now I'm 18 and decided a couple of months ago that I was going to start eating more consciously. I started cutting back on unhealthy foods and began to lose weight, which was great at first, but it kept getting more extreme. Now, I skip meals every day, when I eat more than one meal a day I feel extremely guilty, I can't eat big/normal portions in front of other people, the idea of going out to eat gives me extreme anxiety and just the thought of foods I used to love makes me feel sick.
I can feel myself falling into these habits deeper every day and I just can't stop it from getting worse even tho I don't wish to lose any more weight.
are these the beginning stages of an eating disorder?
if anybody has been through something similar or could give me any tips on how to overcome this, I would be so thankful if you left a comment.
