Hello there!

 

My name's Alex

 

I'm not *heavy* however I have to be losing weight...like thirty pounds due to my job. I'm an actress, and I need to lose some weight. I suck at dieting, so starving just seems easy. I need to be more stricter with myself. I need a good support group to work things out with. Everyone else thinks I'm insane for losing that much. But it's necessary. 

 

CW: 130lbs

GW: 100lbs

 

ADD me if you want to! I'm super new to this society thingie. Haha

 

Anyways, adios!

Hi, I'm Kris. I'm in the US and came here for some community who knows the "crazy." Oddly enough, I'm logging on to this site and yet I'm going into residential treatment in a couple weeks. My goal in the meantime is just to have people to talk with. I'm going into treatment early July cos I need to, not want to yet. And I haven't been able to hang out with my local friends or do normal stuff because I have a neuromuscular disease affecting my eyes (which I was affirmed can't be resolved until I'm significantly better).

You know, some days I can honestly say to myself, I'd rather have to wear an eye patch all the time and still lose another ten lbs, while other days I recognize how flat-out miserable as my vision deteriorates. I'm not going to post goal weights, even though I have one set to reach before my entry date to treatment. I wish I could say getting to that weight will make me happy. But, reality is, I'm caught between a rock and a hard place with the neuromuscular disease and ultimately have to get recovered (I'm more scared of failing at this last-ditch bid than ever starting and just suffering on. Anyone ever felt that way?

Hi y'all! I'm obviously really new to this so I'm not even sure what to put but basically I just need someone to hold me accountable. I can't ask my parents or my friends really because they all think the way I diet isn't "correct," "proper," etc. So I really just need someone to be there for me as well as hold me accountable. 

 

All I really want is for once to put on a bikini & not feel like a huge whale which I haven't been able to do...really ever. I truly dread summer because I've had melanoma (skin cancer) before so now I can't tan & since I can't tan I'm even more self-conscious about my appearance because everyone already stares at me because I'm so pale. So that's my goal. I'm currently 128 lbs & I want to be 105 lbs, preferably by tomorrow but I know that's realistic. 

 

I'm not sure if you can add someone or message them or what. I just joined literally 8 minutes ago.

 

Thanks everyone!!

Hi, I'm serena. I've looked to this website for advice in the past, and thought I'd actually make an account. I have been dealing with self hatred for years and anorexia development before I was even aware of what I was doing. I relapsed a couple months ago and now I'm here. I am glad there might be people here who might have a clue what I'm going through, and won't try to "fix" me. I don't really have a goal weight. I just want to look perfect.

hey everyone, I'm ally. I joined because I am in need of a lot of motivation, I am determined to reach my goal but frustratingly my body always gets the better of me and I get out of control. I currently weigh 64kg and am about 5'6, my goal weight is at least 55kg. The lowest I've gotten is 57, but as I said before my body gets the better of me and I put all the weight back on, plus more. So I'd love to get to know some of you, and hopefully find some supportive people to help me :))

Hey everyone im skye,

A thirteen year old girl that is 5'6 117.5 pounds and a strong goal to become a model. Ive heard MANY bad things about websites like this,and Im going to let you all know straight up that if you are on here to starve yourself and have an eating disorder, you are sick and selfish as many people in this world are starving from no food while we have plenty. But I do like many attributes to this site, the GW and discussions on binges (as I have problems with that) I see no problem with thinspo and thinspiration, if your fat you need to lose weight plain and simple. I want to keep my boobs and my ass but I really would like a thigh gap and slim stomach. Anyway im not here to preach just to let yall know. hopefully you gal's can let me in with open arm's.

 

Peace and love, skye <3  :P   :D   :D

Hi! My name is Jess and I am in my 4th year of pharmacy school. I have struggled on and off with ana for the last 17 years. I have recently relapsed and am trying to lose the 40 pounds I gained while in pharmacy school. It has been a nightmare but school kept me so busy there was no time to think about being skinny or fat. Now that things r slowing down, I starting to obsess again. I am just looking for some friendship and support, as well as being a supportive friend to those like me.

CW: 160
GW: 112

Have a great night y'all!

I agree with you, I don't want to be stick thin. However, I would LOVE to have a thigh gap and maybe a flatter stomach. I'm mostly looking for workout tips and support to help me reach my goals. I hate that some countries in the world are extremely obese while others can't get enough to eat what so ever.

Hi, I'm new, I'm 5"8 and 146 pounds and so tired of being uncomfortable in my own skin. I would like to be at 115. I joined the site because I need a support group that doesn't judge and who understands. Looking forward to getting some motivation, tips and advice and motivating others as well.

Well. I guess my username says it all. My name is Chelsea. Since I was a little girl, I've been labeled as "fat." I'd wake up every morning and go to school. School was my worst nightmare. Walking down the halls hearing people making fat jokes and others laughing... then joining in... made me feel so terrible about myself. But that wasn't the worst part of it... id also come home to it. I'd hear the hurtful words come out of my loved ones. I got depressed and ate more food. I've had other probs in my life as well.... most people hear my life story and they tell me that I've had a terrible life.... I'd agree... but point is.. I've put myself in a hole, and now I'm obese. I just want to lose this weight. My parents won't help me... all they get is fattening foods. And we eat at unhealthy times. I just dunno what to do...

I feel your pain. I feel like my family has hindered my weight loss so much! They always try to force me to eat. And threaten to put a feeding tube in me even tho I'm no where near under weight. They constantly shove food at me until I just give in. And until now I've had no support system. But hopefully Myproana will change all that. So sorry you're trapped in a similar situation. No one deserves to be bullied at school or at home.
