I don’t have an ED or any diagnosis of the sort but there was a time in my life when I was with an abusive partner and often found myself calorie counting frequently on the scale etc. I remember during that time I only ate one thing, one small bread roll from Costco per day and black tea. Eventually I realized within a couple weeks I lost 17 pounds. Food just felt disgusting and my body felt contaminated by it. Eventually I did end this cycle through therapy and taking this person out of my life. I find myself having those thoughts often though. I just always constantly am in chronic pain and stuck with migraines even if I do eat. It feels useless to eat sometimes. I’m in pain whether I’m nourished or not. In all honesty I miss loosing 17 pounds in barely a week. I work out in a weight training class I have daily and I haven’t lost that much. I try to stop myself but I think about it a lot.

      It’s not necessarily an eating disorder, but you do have a mindset that might lead to one. Perhaps it might be depression that’s causing it, definitely check in with your therapist. Just know that you don’t have to change anything about yourself for anyone, because you owe them nothing. <3
