While I know loosing weight and looking good is very important to people- escpecially teens, I advise you to tread carefully and always ask those around you for feedback and advice. What can start as a diet can lead to something more serious. Like an eating disorder.
I have one and let me tell you; it sucks. I can't even eat a tomatoe sandwhich without having a nervous breakdown and running to the bathroom to puke it up. The thought of eating makes me want to hurt myself. Again.
EDs have been on my mind all day since I got the, "You're scaring me." speech from father and a call from my almost blood sister sounding so depressed and telling me she wanted to be just like me and starve herself too.
That upset me very much.
If you feel like you have an eating disorder or worried you might be getting one; contact me or talk to someone mature that you trust. This includes ed-nos (eating disorder- not otherwise specified), anorexia, bulimia, coe (compulsive over eater), or just obsessional thoughts about food and/or weight.
