Any Advice? I'm Lost

hi my name is ashlynn, i'm 14 and LOST. All of my life i've had an issue with food. I have been bullied since i was 5 and it was always so hard growing up with no friends, i always had my cousin but we're not really friends anymore(that's another story). When i was 7 & 8 i was being bulllied at school and then i would come home and my brothers would call me fat, bullying was a 24/7 thing. In 3rd grade i started over eating to fill the void, i was always active so i was never too fat (i thought i was though). 4th grade was a lot better i didn't go home and cry everyday, but i still was over eating & really self-consiencious. skipping ahead to 8th grade now bullying got a lot worse and my anorexic thoughts began. I became vegetarian for about a month or two and gave up on that. I began watching what I ate but, it wasn't until this year 9th grade when I really started having issues. I self- harmed for the first time in the summmer after 8th grade once but by december 2011 i was cutting my wrists pretty bad. I wasn't eating but 500-800 calories a day and doing basketball practice 10 hours a week. I began eating more this semester after basketball ended, but I feel awful, hideous and FAT!!!! I've talked to my bible study leader about some of this (she was anorexic in high school) and she thinks i'm anorexic. Even though I know i'm not I can't be i'm way too fat to be anorexic. I finally found a way to effectively loose weight and me and my friend will start that diet on monday (it's called the rainbow diet). I'm really sorry for rambling on and on like this but I am so lost. My bible study leader thinks i'm anorexic, i don't think i am though and she wants me to go to councling. I'm lost and confused... any advice???

Some advice

You are loved
by: Carol

God says in his word that you are fearfully and wonderfully made, without any flaws. Put truth in your mind by saying bible verses everyday. Speaking the truth will allow you to believe that you are worhty and that you are the most precious, beautiful, adored, loved, princess on this earth. That's what God says you are. Believe it, He loves you more then anyone on this earth. Don't speak lies out of your mouth. Satan wants to kill,, still and destroy. He does this with girls through food and body image. God made your body. Trust in what He has to say verses what other people say. The kiing is enthralled by your beauty psalms 45:11

The Lord Jesus Christ Cares
by: Antelop 7

I want you to know that the Father Loves you so much and accepts you the way He created you; even now that you are going through this tough time. The Lord Jesus Christ alone can set you free and give you the Power to gain control over all your fears.
Do you want to know the plan God has for you? Prosperity.
The plan of God for you is for you to prosper, His plan is not to harm you, but for you to have an expected end. {Jeremiah 29:11}

Do you want to know how God thinks about you?
He loves you. {John 3:16} For God so love you, that His only begotten Son Jesus Christ, if you believe in your heart that Jesus is the son of God sent forth by God Himself to be the propitiation for all your sins, through faith in Jesus blood when He died on the cross of Calvary, Then you shall not perish but have everlasting life. For God sent Jesus Christ into the world for you not to condemn you, but that through Jesus Christ You might be saved from the wrath of God against the Judgment day of God{ Romans 3:25}

Do you want to know the purpose of God for you? Salvation.
God purpose for you is that you be saved. God wants to save you by offering to receive the Lord Jesus Christ who is the Way, Truth, and Life. The Lord Jesus has already lived the perfect life god wants from you, so all you have to do is receive Jesus, who did all the work for you. Jesus is already the only acceptable sacrifice to God.

Do you also want to know what the barrier between you and God is? Sin {Romans
2:23; 6:23} For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
But I know you will like to know the good news, and what the Lord has done for you. The Lord Jesus Has died for all your sins, and has the power to forgive you all your sins before God you have committed.
Now I know the Lord is leading you to receive Him as your personal Lord and Savior. All you have to do is talk to the Lord. Tell God that you agree with Him, and that you have sinned. Then ask God to forgive you for all your sins, and thank Him for sending His Son to die for your sins on the Cross. Ask the Lord Jesus to come into to life and heart, to become your Lord and Savior, and conform you into the Image and likeness of God in Jesus name.
