Okay, dear!.!.!.I understand exactly where you are coming from!.

Yes, I think you do have an eating disorder!. Anorexia is not how your body looks, but a state of mind!. It is no more of a choice then depression or schizophrenia!.

Do you really wanna end up like these girls!? --> http://www!.youtube!.com/watch!?v=4seEB0Ha7!.!.!.

And let me tell you a little secret!.!.!.When you DO start to eat again, which is the alternative to dying (since you've put your body in starvation mode and your metabolism is so slow) you will gain ALL the weight back plus maybe more because your body will store all the calories!. Since it thinks you won't be giving it any more for a while!.

I know what it's like to lay awake at night and plan out what you're going to be eating the next day!. And what you're gonna do if faced with certain temptations!. You try to go to school and socialize and smile but inside you're dying!. All you can think of is the food you aren't allowing yourself to have anymore!. And you try to ignore the mirror as much as possible but when you catch a glimpse of yourself, you spend the next ten - twenty minutes pinching here and there, imagining how great you'll look 10,20,30 pounds thinner, when in reality you're JUST skin and bones!.!.!.

And no one understands!.!.!.They think YOU chose anorexia!. But you didn't - Anorexia chooses YOU! I know, i'm going through the same thing!.

If you refuse to talk to anyone or you don't have anyone to talk to, then please email me anytime you need to, or have any questions!. PLEASE eat, even if it's "safe" food, like salad for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!. Just EAT! Please take care, and take me up on my offer if you need any help!. I'd be more than happy to help you the best way I can!. Just click my profile and click email, anytime! I'm here for you, because I know how hard it is!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

Sorry hun, yes you are Anorexic, you probably haven't been at it long enough to do yourself any real harm, but you will!. First thing you can do to help yourself, eat, eat something light, then keep doing it!.!. Your body at this very moment is cannibalizing itself!. Your metabolism is probably almost nonexistent!. Are you at least drinking water!? Talk to an adult, talk to a counselor, talk to your doctor!.!. You do need help though, don't try to do it alone, please!.
Good luck Bree, I wish you all the best!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

I understand what you are going through!. I'm about the same weight and height but have been on a diet for the past month so I've probably lost about 7 pounds (don't know though cos I don't have scales but I look thinner)!.
It is not good to completely go on a crash diet as when you start eating again which is completely inevitable, you will gain all the weight you lost and more!.
You need to establish an eating pattern that you can maintain for a long period of time and exercise daily eg!.walking briskly!. If you eat around 700-1000 calories a day (which is not a lot) of healthy food, you will definitely lose weight without risking your health!. It's working for me!.
Btw for your height, 100 pounds is too low!. 109 is about just on the verge of having a healthy BMI!. Www@Answer-Health@Com

it sounds like you are already a anorexic,,take it from me you dont want to be,by the time i was thirty i had a heart attack due to low potasuim,it also messes up your menustral cycle which isnt good,when your potasuim becomes very low you will have all kinds of health proplems, in the long run its not worth it,our bodies are made t eat,,not strve ourselves,but being anorexic just doesnt mean eating will solve everything,theres always more underling issues you need to deal with,sounds weird i know,but after my hrt attack it was like something clicked in me, im now 42 yrs old wth all kinds f health issues,beleive me its not worth it, reach out to someone and get help now,take careWww@Answer-Health@Com

that doesn't really sound like anorexia to me!.!.!.
anorexia takes roots in months, not days!.

there are pretty strict requirements to be diagnosed with anorexia, you'd probably fall into ed-nos (eating disorder- not otherwise specified) if anything!.

good luck :]Www@Answer-Health@Com
