I overeat... watch

    ...so i get depressed, so i overeat :mad:

    I'm so mad that i've gotten into this horrible cycle, and also really mad at myself because i was meant to turn this around this summer, and i failed. I kept putting off eating well and exercising until, what a minute when did summer finish!?

    This time last year i was anorexic, very skinny. It didnt bother anyone because i've always been small and very fussy with food so friends family thought nothing of it.
    During the year, what with excessive drinking and junk food at uni i turned to bulimia and regular exercise to fix my weight (which it definitely didn't). Its hard though when you live with others and its just the sociable thing to do to have dinner/lunch and even breakfast together (we were a very close knit flat).

    Right now i'm at the stage where i'm not making myself sick (yay) but am just eating, and eating, and eating. Today alone i've had 2 of every meal, and have pretty much been snacking throughout the day.

    I'm not fat, i'm normal weight for the first time in my life and i hate it. I turned away a guy i really liked because i thought i was too fat for him to like me, i jut feel so screwed up in the head right now, and am literally terrified of going back to uni because people will be thinking i'm fat

    It doesnt help that my sisters anorexic and almost feeds me up so she remains skinnier than me (damn it i used to be the skinny one) and both my mum and my dad are dieting so comment about my weight, and how much i eat.

    When i talk to my friends they blow me off and say i'm normal weight now which is good, but how is it healthy to survive off about 2500< cals a day when i was happy, healthy, satisfied with 1500cals?

    Woah i clearly am more angry about this than i thought, thanks for reading if you've gotten this far.

    Erm .... ok.

    Have you tried seeing a psychologist specialising in eating disorder? They might be able to help with the depression.

    i think you should book an apptmt. to see a counsellor.
    i'm not just saying this. i speak from experience

    and yes, if you got too skinny, you will probably end up putting on weight at some point, probably more than you need to put on.

    is there something deeper with the whole competitiveness with your sister? it doesn't sound very healthy.
    is there something going on with you at the moment which is beyond your control (i.e being told what to do)?
