So, at school I don't go to many of my lessons due to anxiety so I spend most of my time in a learning support room, the past week this teachers been asking me "Have you eaten your lunch?" And obviously I just say yes automatically when I haven't but I'd been in that room all day so she was really confused but I was able to leave as it was break soon after (phew) but that was only one of the times

Others things the teaching assistants have said are like "no lunch again?" "You need to go get some food"
(There's nothing I can eat from the school because I'm vegan and its all shitty food but nobody believes I am tf lmao) but they're really starting to notice now, today my key worker asked what I had for lunch and I had no answer. There was a discussion about "looking fat". In a classroom and I just said "Well I have no comment" and laughed but I guess the teaching assistant didn't find it very funny and now she's even more worried oops

What can I do to stop this??? If it carries on they tell my parents


One question: Is the teaching assistant overweight aka jealous? That having been said (perhaps my comment should have been saved for the rant forum), yes, it is a good idea to bring (And eat!) low-calorie vegan snacks in the 'learning support room,' going forward. Please post a follow-up, after your next encounter w. the teaching assistant. Best of luck!

My answer is somewhere along the lines of - oh I just wanted to try being vegan, been running with someone they don't know, oops forgot to eat will eat when I get home, and ate too much during breakfast not hungry, or something like I'm a little sick right now. 

158cm/CW 40.4 kg/UGW 36kg


SW: 42kg

HW: 46-47kg 

LW: 38kg

GW1: 39kg

GW2: 37.5kg

UGW: 36kg


All I'll say is










If I can't have these what's the point of living? 


No more restriction, no more ED. Just trying to live and forget about ever having an ED.

Either quit the support room or bring snacks that you conveniently are always eating around them.

At my school now nobody particularly cares unless it's already something they've noticed, eg I binge purged in the bathroom every day for over a year and never heard a peep but someone reported that I was looking thinner and I was constantly asked if I hated my body/thought I was fat/was trying to lose weight. Fuck off!!!! Haha.

But yeah, nowadays as long as it's not already known they don't ask. And I'm always out of the way during lunch hour so no staff observe me.

Take a thermos with hot water, broth or tea. Say it’s soup. Or tell them to shut their face.



that would definitely work

the thing about that is that teachers talk to each other. if they're concerned about your health and you say you ate last period, they'll check in with that teacher. and then they'll know you're lying. lying = something to hide. you've gotta bring something, even if it's small, and eat every single day. fruit, soup & crackers, salad, anything.

Eat some fruit in the previous class then eat some more fruit in the next class. That way when they communicate you’ve eaten in two classes and they won’t get suspicious. Just realised this is super late but oh well lmao

I'd ask if they have a medical degree, and if they say no then I'd tell them to stop asking.

This is the most convincing, argumentative and most savage answer!!! Thank you!!!

I will do it to all strangers and ppl who annoy me.

Not a teacher but once a 238lbs guy who is my height who has a crush on me decided to be my food police. He starts saying how l eat too much and lm thin bc my metabolism is fast when l only "eat" coffee in front of ppl and then say l don't eat enough and l will need to eat.

I'm in Psych and a couple of my profs are actual Clinical Psychologists. One is actually caring and notices her students so I'm getting worried with the news of that Yale student being kicked out. She didn't say anything to me (I'm not that light) but I intend to lose 20 lbs this semester because of model work.. help?

A couple of the comments on this post really annoy me.

You want to starve yourself to death. I get it. So do I.
You want to avoid eating. I get it. So do I.
You want to get so skinny that people notice. I get it. So do I.

But here’s the thing. If you starve yourself, you don’t eat, and you get so skinny that people’s notice they will talk. You can’t have it all your own way. Teachers, doctors, therapists and anyone responsible for the care of a child has a “duty of care”. That means if you show the hallmark signs of an eating disorder they are legally obliged to report it in order to protect you. It’s actually a good thing that they care so much for you. I don’t see it as being nosy. I’m more concerned about the thousands of teachers out there atm who are ignoring students in obvious distress - too blind or too lazy to do anything about it.

I get it that you hate the interference and this post is a way to vent. I get that. But I do hope that deep down you can respect the fact that someone cares enough for you to try to help.

This is like 2 years late but whatever, there are hundreds of 70 calorie smoothies you can take into school, take them in in a clear container so it is obvious there is not just water in it. Easy and p, if someone asks, lie about what is in it.
