Hi, I’m Anna! I was a normal 10 year old who grew into a fat teenager struggling with binging/restricting as a result of my mom’s constant bodyshaming since I was little.

At the end of my freshman year of college (three years ago) I was diagnosed with ADHD, and the meds got rid of the binging part so I’m really in it now lol. That summer I dropped to a size 4 pretty much overnight and it felt so good to go back to school that way. People legitimately didn’t even recognize me. Turning down guys who bullied me in high school felt amazing.

At the same time, I was enraged to discover that I was pretty much gaslit for years. It was never my fault I was friendless and single my whole life. It wasn’t because I was weird or lacked confidence. It’s simply that people are shallow as fuck. No part of who I am changed, yet overnight everyone wanted to be my friend.

So, here I am, completely TERRIFIED by the newfound knowledge of just how precarious my social standing is. It’s like I’ve left the Matrix. I’m not so much trying to become extremely skinny as much as I am deathly afraid of ever being fat again. My goal weight is more of an insurance against getting fat again, as it were.

I’m a longtime lurker who’s finally gotten around to signing up, and I’m happy to be here!

Hello, I’m Hailey and am wanting to start my second little weight loss wave. I lost 35 pounds in four months but my battle with body dysmorphia leaves me dissatisfied. I have maintained my CW (127) for about 6 months or so as I tried to build a healthier relationship with food. I would love to get down to 120/115, so here we are again.

Hi I'm Madi, I'm new to MPA but I'm not new to my ED.

I've always had poor self-image growing up ever since I was a child due to my narcissistic mother and myself. My parents enforced the "finish your plate" rule and threatened me without dinner if I ever misbehaved. This had a huge toll on my mental health growing up and screwed up my idea on food.

My entire family is obese/overweight except me and I am completely the "black sheep" of the family.

Making the decision earlier in life to be healthier & start to work out more to feel better about myself and lose more weight due to my insecurities and poor self-image got excessive. Counting my calories, indoor cycling for hours, and weighing myself everyday got to an unhealthy point and I decided to find people who were going through the same things I were so I started searching online for people and I found a couple of social media ED communities and I fell deeper and deeper into my poor mental state and malnutrition. I attempted recovery with the help of my boyfriend for 3 months when I temporarily visited him for vacation, I gained 4kg and I regret it so bad.

There's a lot more to my sob story but to just keep it short. I've had a poor relationship with food most of my life, I have a super addictive personality and I don't really care much about myself at times (I'm working on my self-image tho.) I want to recover eventually, but I never want to be above a size 0, and I crave for control over my own body and mind.

Nice to meet you, I hope to make some nice acquaintances here. :')

Hello, my name is… I’m pathologically shy so I’ll skip the name for now.
I’ve binged, I’ve starved, I’ve even tried a healthy diet once or twice. Weight has always been all over the place.

Currently in starvation mode. Bit of a lurker. Diagnosed with Autism. I don’t write much. But when I do I’ll be sure to sperg out on my favourite topics. 
Ah, to hell with it… my name is Jocelyn. Pleased to meet you.

hiya 

ive lurked on this site for god knows how many years, at least 5 by now. 

i only recently made an account because im at a point in my life where i have no friends and being a part of this seemed like decent social interaction, and the ed stuff has gotten pretty pressing lately and i just want to talk to people abt it without feeling like a freak.

 

also as ive been watching this site for so long, its been a dream to join, and i guess i only just got the courage. 

 

ive been restricting for about 7 years consciously, but have had food/eatng problems my whole life so i guess it was destiny.

Hello, I'm Karly (21) and I'm dealing with ed-stuff since my teenage years.
I've discovered this forum and hopefully find some new friend and some ed-sisters&brothers, which can understand the struggle and problems.
Currently, I'm weighing 54 kg. My goal is between 42 - 45. My lowest weight was 48 back in the days.

Love,
Karly^^
