i used to have a eating disorder about 8 years ago, about a month ago i started not eating as much, counting calories, and now it’s gotten to a serious problem. i know it’s a problem but my mom is encouraging me to stop eating. she jokes and laughs about it. it makes me uncomfortable, im not sure what to do? i am overweight, but i’m concerned about me not eating, anxiety over calories etc. i’m scared to talk to anyone about it. i don’t know what i should do? i’m so CONFUSED if this makes any sense

      I started suffering with an ED 8 years ago as well. My "recovery" was just 10 months of binging my way from underweight to obese. After 3 months of starvation, I'm just 1 lb away from the leaving the obese BMI category. I started losing hair at the 1.5 month mark of not eating nearly enough. Some days my body hurts so bad I stay in bed 22/24 hours. My point is, you can suffer with an eating disorder at any weight and it can definitely impact your health. The body isn't made to constantly starve/purge/binge. One way or another, you're not okay. You should talk to a therapist about what you're experiencing. If you want to lose weight for yourself, to become healthier, then you can talk to your doctor about sending a referral to a nutritionist. They'll be able to help you create a meal plan to get you losing the healthy way, without the need to starve or purge. It'll be hard, but recovery is the only way to be happy in life.
