  • my best advice, when you start to get hungry, think of how happy you'll be to loose at least a lb.
    you come to a point if you dont eat when youre hungry... its like idk, past hunger & youre not even hungry anymore.
    & at the end of the day when you havent eaten, you feell like a million bucks!
    gooood luck stay strong & stay skinnyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • I think you need psychiatric help if you want to weight less than 100...100 isn't even healthy. YOU probably actually need to GAIN at least 20 lbs.

    Yes, I was anorexic and bulemic for several years, and it IS a sickness. It's been almost 10 years and still fight the urges, even when I'm perfectly healthy. DOn't do it.

  • You're 101 lbs and you don't think you're skinny??

    Please, talk to your doctor and get yourself some help. You can DIE from malnutrition...it's not a good idea.I'm assuming you're a mother since you're on CafeMom...is it worth it to leave your daughter behind?

  • Is this a serious question? 101 is normal weight if you are about 4'11". Getting down too low is just asking for trouble, heart problems, sudden death....Perhaps you should seek counseling. That isn't a bash...that is serious. Anorexia is not something to be taken lightly, it is mental illness fueled by low self image and low self esteem. It is not something you want to bring on for a little while. It doesn't work that way.

  • I'm sure there's also anorexic girls that think they're making the choice for themselves. You're going to start yourself down a very tough road if you think that this is ok.

  • Look, I am gonna prob sound like a bitch here, but I am 5 ft and weigh 105, and I STRUGGLE EVERYDAY. I was locked up in rehab for 10 mo due to anorexia/bulemia and my mother had to take the door off the hinges. If you weigh 100 lbs and are 5 ft, u are FINE! But if u wanna be sick and struggle EVERYDAY FOR THE REST OF YOU LIFE, GO AHEAD. U only struggle everyday if u live through it

  • Ok, you're 5 feet. I'm 5'2". A healthy weight for me is 130-140. You're only 2 inches shorter than me, so you really need to gain. I'll stand by that.
