    Kind of strange reason I'm asking about these... basically my best friend and my ex-bf have decided that I have some kind of problem with my eating. They say this because I have a really small appetite and I've lost quite a bit of weight recently (I am not underweight though- I'm just over 8 stone).

    I also told my mate (when drunk, i didn't mean to) that i have made myself sick in that past, but i haven't done that for ages and ages + probably haven't done it more than half a dozen times ever.... and i know this suggests that i have an eating problem... but i now realise it was stupid thing to do and i'm honestly never going to do it again.

    i was just wondering if anyone has any experience of eating problems... although i'm positive i don't have one... i just wanted to hear about anyone who has had problems in the past...

    Hey Lou

    Im going through the same thing with a friend at the moment too. The main thing is that they are only saying it cos they wanna make sure you dont go and do sumthing stupid. 8 stone is quite light by the way, how tall r u? It just means that they are looking out for u.

    yeah i know they are, but it drives me crazy. they seem to swap stories with each other and jump to the wrong conclusions. the other week, i went to lunch with my ex, but i felt sick (i ended up going home from college later because i was ill), so i just didn't eat cos i was feeling poorly. he then went + told my best mate 'louisa's not eating' and i got a huge lecture from her......
    i am only 5'2, so it's quite light, but not underweight.

    hi
    i really want to lose some weight but am not sure bout how.
    everyone says eat healthy and exercise but i am finding it difficult cos i have not got much free time. i also snack on biscuits quite a lot and unhealthy things. I am not hugely over weight, I just dont feel happy with my weight, so has anyone got any pointers for me?
    thanx

    I wouldnt say im overweight

    all i do is eat what i want and exercise for fun...it makes it not a chore....if you feel hungry, dont feel the need to eat right away ... just leave the hunger pains until the next meal - of fill up on water until next meal

    that's what i do, i only eat when i'm hungry, which basically means i only really need one meal a day + i exercise when i'm too stressed- i go swimmign a few times a week, maybe go the gym while i'm there + i go dancing as well.

    Don't worry about it...I am the same as you in that I just eat when I am hungry (which is like a sandwich at lunch then something around 9pm). I always get people saying that I have an eating disorder but I have stayed the same weight for the past three years so I think they are wrong lol although I am quite slim compared to most people.

    If you start loosing weight then you should start to think about it more seriously but if your weight is staying the same then you obviously aint doing any harm.

    I always used to have a battle to eat, and always used to think I was fat but I never had a real eating disorder. I did eat as much as my appetite let me, but my friends were always worried and they only do it cos they're concerned. I'm 5'10, yes I know I'm tall, and 9st 5 and this is a bit underweight but i'm comfortable as I am, and as long as you're comfy as you are then you just need to reassure them there isn't anything to worry about!
