So I’m not too sure how to put this delicately…so bear with me…
I’m NOT anorexic.
I eat between 1400-1500 calories a day. The amount that a doctor told me to eat. I am losing weight in a healthy manner. Eating right and exercise.
I am (still) getting emails from some people asking about “mia/ana-lifestyles.” These are the top three questions.
Q. How do you keep yourself from eating when you are starving?
A. I don’t. If I am starving, I eat. I eat healthy snack if I don’t feel like I can wait until my next meal. I manage my meals in a way that I eat 6 small meals a day, so rarely do I get that “starving” feeling.
Q. How many times a day do you purge?
A. Zero. The last time I threw up I had a stomach bug.
Q. What was your longest fast?
A. Four hours, I threatended my mom that if she didn’t get me something I wanted I would go on a hunger strike. I was 9. Other than that….no
So. Again. I am not anorexic. This is a blog for weight loss, yes, but it’s all about how I am losing weight in a healthy manner.
I have been keeping up with a 1% weight loss a week… right now that is a little under 2 pounds a week. When I hit 170ish… I”ll drop down to 1.5 pounds a week.
I know this is a sensitive subject, but I can’t (and won’t) tell anyone how to lose weight in an unhealthy way. I’m sorry I just won’t do it.
My best advice is to go seek medical help, or at least sit down and talk to someone who can help you get better.
I’m not trying to be mean about any of this…but I just wanted to say something… you know?
So, I hope I didn’t get anyone P.O’d
