I don't really want to talk to my doctor about this right now, but I have been trying to lose weight which is next to impossible. So, I've resorted to taking laxitives to purge stuff out of my body. I don't eat during the day, other than a glass of milk, then I eat dinner but then I always feel guilty. So I take about 5 maximum strength laxitives to get rid of it. It seems to help me lose weight (better than not doing it) I dont throw up my food (I'm a singer so it would ruin my vocal chords and it is just gross) but I am very self concious about the way my body looks, especially the fat around my belly. I'm 5'2" and weigh 130 lbs, so , technically I'm not anorexic looking and no one would guess whats going on. I don't ever eat tons of food and throw up or excercise like crazy, so I don't think it's bulimia. But I would really like to lose another 20 lbs. I've already lost 15.
Any guesses as to wether or not I've got an eating disorder? I just don't know and don't want to talk to anyone I actually know, because they might freak out.
I was a "successful anorexic" in high school, weighing 88 lbs at one time. Friends were concerned. I guess maybe I'm not feeling as successful this time. Being older it's so hard to lose weight. and going out to dinner at a nice restaraunt always gets me. I eat, feel guilty,and take laxitives.
