Hello, I'm Teresa. I've had a very unhealty relationship with food since I remember. I'm obsessed with food, it's all I can think about and it controls my life. I would love to have someone to talk to about these things, I've never told anyone.

Right now losing weight is my biggest dream.

 

Beside that, I really enjoy watching movies and drawing. Some of my favorite directors are Wong Kar Wai and Sion Sono. I love psychedelic art.

Hey! I’m Chloe and I’m 19yo. As a kid I was a bit chubby and when I hit pubertat I grow up and lost weight, I was never thin but weight around 55-57kg being 150-160cm. Then one summer I gained 2kg and then 2 more. Until I stopped caring about everything and thought to enjoy life I should avoid all my personal límits (wrong). I ended up gaining until 66kg or more. Now I’m at 59-60kg, ai ing to get to 45kg. Thank you for this opportunity! I’m hoping to contribuir to this community as much as possible

Hey everyone :)

I'm Lila, I'm from New Zealand, I've been struggling with anorexia for about 7 years (though more recently I've been binging and purging as well every couple of weeks, not sure if that qualifies me for binge purge type?) 

I'm a competitive dancer and I also love running, baking (but not so much eating lol) and reading!

I've just come to MPA after giving up on ED Tumblr - got deactivated too many times and it was getting really frustrating cos I would lose all my friends and posts etc.

Currently seeing a psychologist who is really pushing me to get further help with my eating, but as I'm on the verge of being healthy still (BMI 19 as I am very muscular) and am not considered a child anymore she can't force me, and I'm really trying to put off getting help for as long as possible. 

Anyway, hoping to make some new friends and get some support from this community - you all seem lovely so far!


a hot mess minus the hot part

 

Height: 171 cm

SW/HW: 68.8 kg (BMI 23 ish)

CW:54.5 kg (BMI 18.6)

GW: 50 kg (BMI 17.0)

UGW: Who knows - depends how I look and if I can get that far without intervention

 

Weight lost so far:

14.3 kg / 31.5 lb

Hi I’m Annie I’m new here I’m so happy I found people that I can relate to and understand what what I’m going through my sw:57/58 kg
Cw:54 lw: 52 gw : 47 ugw: 38
I’ve been having a hard time going under my lowest weight and I don’t know why I just my weight doesn’t budge and I always end up binging or something currently I am in school and I’m trying my best to get grades so I’m find it hard to restrict and trying to lose weight because I really am trying to focus while studying and be able to sleep but I’m definitely maintaining and I’m not binging

Hi everyone. I’m Sally. I joined this site because it’s inspiring in so many ways. I believe this is a place where I can find people with the same struggles as myself as well as those that have overcome their obstacles and found victory. I’ve already seen so many inspiring threads that have been very informative. I’m mostly a lurker since it takes me a while to get comfortable and start posting.

Hi I'm Xander. I'm non binary and use he/xe/they pronouns so pls respect that! I'm anorexic and in forced recovery but trying to resist it. I'm 5'5 and my cw is 46.4kg. My ugw is 35kg but tbh I'd like to be lower. Idk else to say other than I'm active on edtwt and have been for about a year and finally decided to sign up for MPA.

Yeah, 4st.7lb, an epilogue of youth

Such beautiful dignity in self abuse

Hi, I’m Em. Not comfortable labeling myself with an ed, so I’ll just say I have disordered tendencies when it comes to food and weight.. Currently 175 cm and 60kg. UGW is 53.5kg (118 lbs). I’m 16 and have been struggling with body image and weight since elementary school. I think I might have been a past binge eater but again, not comfortable labeling myself. I don’t think I’m here for tips to lose weight or anything—more so for a safe place to talk and find low calorie meal options (´-`).。oO~~

Hi I’m LadyButterfly . I overcame an binge eating(10+ years ago) and purging disorder , using laxatives , because I could no longer poop normally. I’ve never been skinny always 125 as a teen to my current weight as an adult at 180 lbs. Food is the addiction , most of my money , thoughts , time and life is spent on food . At this point it’s annoying . I’m here for community and overcoming this . Much love 💕 to everyone .

I’m Devyn. I joined because I’m lonely. I don’t really have many friends, mostly acquaintances and coworkers. I’m 31, anorexic and food avoidant. I’ve lost a considerable amount of weight this year. It’s been rough, but yet I’m here and not ready to make changes to stop.

Hi! I'm 41 and I have been either anorexic or binging my entire life. Trying to work my way back down to looking more like a healthy human being and no longer being the girl who is either morbidly obese, or scarily skinny. I don't want to be talked about anymore! No idea where I'll end up this time around. Happy to meet people who get it! <3

hello all, i'm liz! i'm 21 years old and started struggling with disordered eating at 12 years old. I'm currently at a BMI 20.5 after losing 40kg+. I have extreme weight fluctuations depending on wether i'm restricting or binging. these last years. i'm tired and having physical effects which scare me. but i've never been skinnier than this and its by far not even skinny. I feel invalid and like I have to prove myself by being underweight, but actually everyone knows about my eating disorder which also embarrasses me. Anyway, there's a lot going on and my GW is at least underweight. <\3
