Several people have posted messages about eating disorders, and I'd like to say my piece, as well. After being aneroxic (as well as purging food when I was backed into eating) for three years, I have finally started on the road to recovery. Some people seem to think that being aneroxic or bulimic means being thin and nothing else. During my years of severely restricting my food intake and forcing myself to throw up what I did eat, I lost so much more than weight. Whenever I went to brush or even touch my hair, it would come out in huge clumps in my hands due to a protein deficiency. I am very into singing, but purging so often left my glands swollen and my throat sore. I have the beginnings of osteoperosis which has no cure and it will only get worse as I get older. Because of this, I am no longer allowed to swim on my school's team- something I greatly enjoyed. When my parents finally... (view more)

Hey! From looking around this website, I've noticed that a lot of you have been using Weight Watchers to shed weight. While it may seem like a quick fix, you have to remember that the program is designed to change your eating habits FOR LIFE, which means, if you lose the amount of weight that you want and quit, and start your unhealthy habits again, it ALL comes back. I've learned this through personal experience (I lost 25 lbs, stopped, and gained all of it back, plus 20 more!), and it's also happened to two friends of mine. We gained all the weight back, and a little extra, too. So, just think of this as a warning. Dont use Weight Watchers unless you intend on keeping those eating habits FOREVER. Oh yeah, one thing before I go! A lot of you SHOULD not be worried about your weight AT ALL! Someone said they wear a size 0! That is NOT FAT. That is TINY. Go ahead and change your diet to be healthy, but NOT to lose weight! You'd waste away if you did! j/k

I really need an answer here, all my friends and family think im really thin, but I always feel like i have alot of "blubber" and alot of adult size pants don't fit me, but they fit my older sister. Do u think I should try this program? Or will it be unhealthy for me, as im in puberty?

A lot of you are doing very unhealthy things to your bodys. Not eating, not enough nearly enough, thinking about binging and purging. That's really retarded. I am 5ft 2 and at my highest weight I weighed 220lbs and was a snug US size 18/20. Through changing my diet and exercise I've lost just over 40lbs in 5 months, most of that in the past 2 1/2-3 motnhs. Yes, I still want to lose more weight, but I know how to do it healthily. Also, do any of you realize you are changing your LIFESTYLE. When you lose however much weight you want to lose (5lbs...10lbs..100lbs) you will not be able to suddenly eat all the pizza and ice cream you want and sit around all day. Yes, I do believe that most obesity is caused by laziness. Some people (like the girl on the steroids) do suffer from weight gain because of medicine or medical problems but MOST obesity is caused by being a couch potato. Oh,... (view more)

How come everybody here seems to think the only reason you can be overweight is overeating? There can be other reasons too. I have been skinny and active all my life till i got a kidney disease not to long ago. that gave me fluid retentiton. an dthen i had to take a very high dose of prednisone for a two months. I'm still on it. I started gaining weight on it. and the last time I went to the doctor their height/weight chart said i was about 30 pounds overweight already in this short peroid of time. The doctor said my "moonface" will eventually slim down after i'm off the steroid. i know that fluid retention will go away easy but fat is harder to get rid of. and i have to admit prednisone makes me hungry all the time. and if i try to skip meals or snacks i get horrible cramps. my dovtor said that was normal for the dose i'm taking.
is their anything i can do to prevent myself from overeating? so when i'm off this can go to my normal weight. I take dance lesons reguraly.
