Why are you in your current restricting phase? What triggered mine was seeing a girl I haven’t seen in a long time who used to be fat lost a shit ton of weight. Also, my boyfriends stepmom has a lot of health problems and she has dropped a ton of weight. What about you guys?

Oh geez. So my brother alternates between calling me tiny and calling me obese. My dad said I’m skinny now but I was “heavy at one point for a little bit” (literally my BMI has never been over 21 but). And my brother said I ate a ton of food (I had only had like 600 calories) and told me he hadn’t eaten all day. It’s like I don’t really know where I stand, all I know is I want to be back at my lw. No one has really commented on my recent weight loss (BMI 20 to BMI 18.5) and I want to be so thin people have to notice

Screwing up at work and feeling like a complete failure. Actually, just all of December, really. I was sick with back to back colds and I didn’t eat much, my face finally slimmed up a bit. But I had stopped taking my bipolar meds and grew very manic over the holidays. When I finally was able to go back to work, I lost my temper and started bawling and treated everyone like shit. Now I don’t have a job, my wedding is in a month and I’m wearing a size 14 dress because of how fucking fat I am and I feel like everything is going out of control in my life. So I am slowly starting to restrict again.

- Weight loss progress stalled (because of normal eating and B/P) and was at the same weight for 2 months
- Girl at my work obsessed with dieting, weight, exercise has lost more weight (need to beat her lol I'm going to hell)

- Stopped taking certain meds which made me drop weight without eating less.
- Work stress.
- Someone I used to be in treatment with suddenly regularly showing up in my life with a BMI of say.. 12.
- Compliments on how I look from random men in my life.. I don't do well with those and know that if I lose more weight they'll stop.
- Judging myself on my lack of social skills a lot lately for some reason. Or judging myself in general.

I've gained a lot of weight last year bc of my antidepressants and a new job, and the holiday's season has been THE WORST.

One of my in law's friend told me at christmas that I should not eat so much bc soon I wouldn't be able to pass through the door, and at new year's a friend kept commenting on how much weight I've gained and how fat I am now, fml.

Sooo, I stopped taking the meds and I'm eating under 1000kcal everyday and here we go again.

Well I'm b/p getting back into restriction rn (and doing surprisingly well) but it was all because my sister made a comment that her friend thinks that my sister is anorexic.

But her friend is the type to like,, try and diagnose my sister with different shit when it's literally depression and anxiety but whatever

So the fear of my sister ever being skinnier than me or having an ed (theres like. A 0.1% possibility of that) lit a fire under my ass and now I use that idea as inspiration

Fucked up I know

Actually (and ironically?), it was my recovery from bulimia. The slew of digestive problems that accompanied it led me back into restricting. Currently trying to toe the line between "just a little" underweight and falling deep into old habits. It's hard.

Been losing steadily 10kg with high calorie restricting. Started to binge-drink alcohol with binges when I was hangover the next day. It turned into a pattern on my bad days.

Didnt gain that much. But I can’t continue living like that, so its time to get back on track. Its time to get real and have control again. I was lucky I didnt gain that much from it.

Low calorie restricting for a kick-start, and because I need to feel that I achieve and manage something in my chaotic life.

I need this right now. Something destructive to keep me going. Trying to use dieting instead of alcohol and food. Doing something greener and «healthier.»

Being reminded of my shitty, fucked up past :'( i was already restricting; and had managed to not binge after a "normal" post-24-hr-fast meal… basically i wanted to eat and was feeling great until triggered :/ so ig i'm still fasting/super-low restricting
