I miss being anorexic....

I used to weigh 115 lbs and im 5'4.... Now I had 3 kids and I weigh.... 155 :'(

Im trying to loose it the normal way but it's hard....the only reason I'm not anerexic is because I have to make meals for my kids...

What was your caloric intake when you were 115?

It's not easy when ones body changes but you aren't determined by what you look like although we live in a very materialistic world

I see. I was mainly trying to see if you meant you truly were anorexic at one point or if you meant it tongue in cheek in regards to being much thinner.

How about making some steamed veggies or a nice salad for yourself instead of eating what you make for the kids?

Statistically, 115 at 5'4 isn't 'anorexic'...but that's because the DSM-IV sucks.

Were you restrictive? Did you have food behaviors? What is it that you miss other than being thin? If it is the control, I would suggest taking up a hobby that can help you distract yourself from your food issues. 

Realise that if you continue down that path, you are harming your body and your future with your children. I really hope you can get the help you need.

At 155, you can still choose to adopt a more healthy lifestyle and lose weight naturally.

Do you remember what you ate, at least? Most anoretic patients I've known could tell me their caloric intake in a heartbeat.

115 you mean? I was restrictive i just didn't eat. i only ate in front of my parents for dinner and lunch at school. but summer time i spent alot of time with friends and didnt eat maybe a meal a day if that... I hate to feel full I hate eating because I know what food can do... i miss being thin even though at 115 i thought i was fat... 

I won't go down that path...

Yes, I meant 115. I'll edit that so there isn't any more confusion. 

I understand what you're saying. A lot of teens (your age at the time) have anxiety about eating in front of others. The full feeling is uncomfortable for many people, but it will pass. Let your body do its job. Also, the more you restrict, the more fluid your body will retain. I'm sorry you're feeling this way. Have you considered seeing a psychologist or counselor who deals with eating disorders? (Always check if they have experience that field, specifically.)
