I am really scared right now that I'm becoming anorexic. I'm not eating a lot daily, mostly I just don't want to, even if I feel hungry. I'm counting calories. I was going to exercise an hour daily, but I can't because of knee issues. I Googled the warning signs. And I have several of them. And I don't know what to do. I don't want this but I fear I won't be able to stop because I hate how fat I feel. Help?

Hi there!

Is there anyone you can go talk to? A nurse, a doctor, a teacher, a family member? It sounds like it is really important for you to get help with this before it gets worse.

Please remember that you will not get fat by eating! Food is important for your body, and you need energy to just breathe. Exercising so much (especially without enough food) can really damage your body and give you some negative experiences. 

I think the key is to try to accept your body. You need to remind yourself that loosing weight will not make you happy. It seems like a lot of people thinks that loosing weight will make them happy, but that is not it. Try to accept your body as it is, I know that it is really hard! But a life with a healthy relationships with your body is so worth it.

Please allow yourself to eat, and try to get professional help. It can really help you, so please. <3

I love you so much!
