Today, just to give you a scale of this problem now.

I have had drained baked beans (120 calories) and 2 rice cakes (26 calories each)

=172 calories.

All my tea and coffee is with soya milk light, and I only had one coffee anyway.


I got scared and had to go to the gym and exercised off 700 calories:/

Now I have a BMI of 16.0 I dont want to lose any more. I dont want the common side effects of anorexia, hair loss, dry skin. I know I need to eat something.

I want to eat something, I dont want to hurt my family- I dont want to lose this guy who I am absolutely falling for (he will find it gross?!) I want to maintain the weight I am.

Sounds stupid, but i was going to have this bowl of peas (please dont laugh, its got to this point) but now im **** scared of eating it. I dont want to be fat, I dont want to put weight on. So now I am having a battle in my head- 2 bowl of peas is not likely to make you p ut weight on, secondly ive eaten 172 calories and exercised off 700, theres nothing in peas!

Yet I still dont want to eat them. Please persuade me to eat them....Im worried my ED has gone beyond help

Please go to the doctor, you seem to think you are fine, but you clearly arent if you are terrified of eating a bowl of peas, trust me you wont get fat go to the doctor and they will explain hwo you can live a healthy lifestyle where you can eat lots of things which you want(within limits) and still be healthy and happy

EDIT
You are a girl right, one thing to think of if you need strength to go to the doctor about this. Do you want to have children in the future, im not asking right now, but say in 10, 20 years time? if you let the anorexia continue much longer it can cause menopause/decreased fertility

Please consult your GP, I doubt people of TSR (unless they have battled with anorexia and survived) will be of much help.

Awwh honey, i think you should see a doctor, but worrying about it is making it worse as you're thinking about it more.

If you don't stop, snap out of it, get help from doctors, ask for support from you friends and family, and start making your way onto that road to recovery then God help you because you are killing youself slowly.

It might be a long road but with help from your doctor, friend and family you'll start to see the finishing line.. you'll overcome it.

Please don't try and hide it to people, it's nothing to be ashamed of x

Yeah, this. I was anorexic a few years ago but not as bad as you and only for a couple months. Periods stopped, if that happens to you which it's likely it will and then continues for a while you may not be able to ever have a baby

Never be scared of eating fresh fruit and vegetables, you most certainly won't get fat from even 'overeating' them. And eating plenty of fruit and veges will help you have nice skin and hair.

But yeah see a doctor who can refer you to a therapist who specialises in these things.

You are not beyond help. Forget the peas, go to a doctor.

I guarentee you, 100%, that eating a bowl of peas will not make you fat. At your weight, consuming the entire McDonalds food chain, bricks and all, probably wouldn't make you fat.

I'm in recovery from anorexia so I know what you mean about being so scared of eating something that's beneficial for you.

You need to see your doctor ASAP. They won't judge you or anything, they're totally understanding. :yep:

The fact that you want to get better is a really good sign, you just need some help getting there. In my profile is a link to the Beat website - you can call their hotline when it's open or post on their forums but this may take a while to get replies/even appear as each comment is moderated individually to ensure that it's not triggering.

Once you start recovery with the help of your doctor etc, life gets so much better, honestly. Life is a million times better than it used to be for me now! :hugs:

---

I think this thread may need a trigger warning though because of the calories thing?

Personally I think the doctor was useless. You can get the same info on Google. Just my opinion, since everyone seems to instantly say go the doctor as if doctors are fairies that will instantly cure you.

Yeah i find doctors really useless as well, but you need to go through them to get referred to people who can actually help.

They're not, it takes a lot of work from the individual, but the doctor will refer the OP to an eating disorder clinic where they'll give them the 'tools' they need to start recovery, to help rethink their thinking process and to uncover the cause for their eating disorder.

Therefore seeing a doctor is the beginning of getting better.

The doctor shouldn't just be giving you "info". What did s/he say?

Gradually eat more and more, when you feel comfortable, don't stuff your face with food, I ain't no expert but I'm sure it's a logical answer
