    As others have said go and see a uni counsellor, however, many GP surgeries have an eating disorder drop in clinic. I have been referred to one due to my unhealthy relationship with food and my psychologist actually referred me. It's best to talk to someone about it as there could be an underlying issue causing it. :hugs:

    This is a little worrying. I'm the same height as the OP and my weight fluctuates between 7.5 - 8 stone throughout the year naturally and I thought it was quite a normal weight.
    could be normal for you, especially if you're under 18/of certain ethnicities/have a very slight bone structure. clearly I have no idea so maybe you could ask your dr if you're concerned. it's obviously not normal for the OP tho.

    as regards counselling/meds OP, I can maybe tell you what's helped me? I did CBT which was actually pretty awesome altho it is primarily supposed to be good for bulimia (I have purging type anorexia). I never found interpersonal therapy helpful but that's just a personality thing I guess. I felt useless telling someone all about my life/problems without actually having an action plan to solve things. Meds = NO in my opinion/experience, but I know that prozac is useful for bulimia in some cases.

    I'm more on the side of the "I live to eat" people . That is why it was so hard for me to stop eating junk food. I managed to though and lost 2 stones in the process :p:: also started eating healthy and exercising... i feel better than EVER. I look better too im told (although i dont see it for some reason).

    I think the "skinny = pretty" thing is one of the most misleading things that a lot of people follow. Its rediculous... people that are skinny disgust me! (and im not the only person)... Dont get me wrong, fat is ugly too; but skinny is just disgusting. Are you remotely attracted to skinny guys?

    I was told that exercising turns on some hormones that make you feel in a good way. I think its true ... keep exercising!
    i am actualy extremely attracted to skinny guys, not anorexic but i do love skinny guys.

    and yeah i'm gona try and join the Uni gym to keep me motivated and my mind off things

    Good to know you will be going to the gym! The uni counsellor will also be useful

    So you're telling me you would prefer a skinny guy over a guy that is fit and has muscle?
