anorexia

  1. Health and Fitness
    I was naturally quite skinny and healthy as a child but suddenly became quite chubby at around 8/9. Many adults in my family are big and during puberty I felt very insecure about my weight, and by age 14 I developed an eating disorder and lost a lot of weight and became underweight or borderline...
  2. Health and Fitness
    I’m a borderline underweight 14-year-old female recovering from anorexia, and between the ages of 8 and 13 I was very chubby from an unhealthy diet and sedentary lifestyle. I remember feeling so insecure about my weight, and I’ve always had a disordered relationship with food: I either starve...
  3. Health and Fitness
    The only thing i had to eat today was a bowl of cereal, yesterday was around 1250 calories, the day before just a sandwich, and the day before that literally nothing, but until then I had been following my weight restoration plan precisely. I’m always hungry and as the result of my anorexia and...
  4. Health and Fitness
    I haven’t ate in almost 24 hours now, don’t want to eat a thing until the 21st of November, and done around 8,500 steps today - considerably more than the amount I would typically do in recovery. My motivation to do this was noticing how fat I am getting in recovery. I feel as though I’m...

    16.7 for me, but I’m only 14 so I’ve never technically been classed as underweight. Current BMI is 17.6 but has to increase to 19.4 in anorexia recovery.
  6. Health and Fitness
    I’m in anorexia recovery but for 33 hours I have abstained from all food and have only consumed water and black coffee. I don’t want to eat anything until tomorrow morning, so that’s like almost 2 days worth without food. That being said, should I eat EVERYTHING on my weight restoration meal...
  7. Health and Fitness
    I just came into anorexia recovery and when I was hospitalised for a week, forced to be sedentary and follow a strict meal plan, I literally gained 3 kg in a week and even though my BMI is now 17.8 I’m scared to gain any more weight because the meal plan will make me so fat so quickly. I still...

    This month [September] I have binged 4 times in total, one of them last night, and now I'm feeling really anxious that something similar will happen tonight and I'll fall into the habit of doing it every day and then quickly becoming overweight as a result. Everyday I compulsively do 20,000...
  9. Health and Fitness
    I religiously do 20,000 steps a day [part of my eating disorder] however I always find it very, very tedious. As a sheltered kid with really strict parents I'm only allowed my phone downstairs and on the house's premises, to track my steps and listen to music. My only two locations are the...

    14-year-old anorexic FtM here, height = 167 cm and weight = 49.6 kg so my BMI is around 17.6. Everyday, I restrict my calorie intake to no more than 1,200 a day and put in gruelling sessions of walking every day, at least 20,000 steps a day in total. I hate living this way and may cut down on...
  11. ENFJ Forum - The Givers
    This former newsreader, now Queen of Spain, seems very ENFJ to me. Do you feel like she's "one of yours?"
  12. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    So it seems paradoxical, right? INTPs are rational creatures. We don't care what society thinks of us, we just do our thing, or so the stereotype goes. We have more important things to worry about than fashion or our physical appearance... like why Firefly was cancelled. I am an INTP woman who...

  14. Type 2 Forum - The Helper
    I have been dating a guy that is two year younger than me (I am 22) for roughly three years. Last winter i had a lot of family stress and relapsed into my eating disorder. I was moody and angry all the time and sick. I pack my things and moved away. I didn't really have a plan I just needed to...
  15. Type 9 Forum - The Peacemaker
    My friend is a type 9 and I just found out that she's struggling with anorexia. Until now I actually thought she was a very healthy 9, she got a scholarship and then also raised 2000$ for cancer on her own. She's probably going to be hospitalized soon but I know that when she gets out of the...
  16. Health and Fitness
    I was just wondering whether eating disorders such as bulimia, binge-eating disorder, anorexia, EDNOS, and compulsive eating are more prominent in NF types, who are always trying to better themselves, as opposed to others. And whether it is more prominent in J types, as they tend to be more...
  17. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    hey So I was just wondering if any INFPs have had the awful experience of Bulimia, or know others that may have been through it. For that matter, any other eating disorder is more than welcomed to be discussed here, but personally I feel that Bulimia is often paired with anorexia and does not...
