Confused

I'm lost. I think i might be anorexic, but i'm not 100% sure. I skip breakfast everyday on purpose and every time i eat a full meal i hate myself for it. i feel like i'm overweight,but everybody tells my i'm so skinny, and i'm depressed all the time. This summer all I did was watch T.V and stay home so when school was about to start i felt like i gained pounds. A LOT OF POUNDS. So i started eating 0-500 calories a day and every morning i would get up at 6 am to exercise.One day i almost collasped because i exercised in my room for 6 hours straight. I don't know what to do and I've been researching the web for hours now. i tried to tell my mom,but she didn't believe me and said that she wasn't going to waste money on an appointment that was useless. I'm scared and I just want an answer. What the heck am i supposed to do? At school I tell myself i'm going to eat at lunch,but when i get to it I barely eat anything.

First of all, I love you and will be praying for you to resolve this no matter what happens.

Second of all, I think it's great that you are trying to change things, and that you realize you might have a problem. I know that it's very hard to just put your mind to eating and then do it because I know a lot of girls in similar positions. One thing that I think will help is telling at least one of your friends at school about your problem. It will be very hard, especially if you're like me and you have a hard time sharing personal issues with friends, but it's really the best way to overcome this. You will most likely feel better just to talk to someone afterwards, and your friend can help you by praying for you and trying to keep you accountable to your goals. It must be really hard not to have your mom's support, but that doesn't mean you should try to go through this alone.

One more thing--you have to give up this idea that you're fat. Every girl's body is different and God did that on purpose. Sometimes I look at my flabby stomach and think that I need to lose a few pounds, and maybe I do. But that's not the right order. It could be true. If 125 is a little heavier than is healthy for me, that is a problem. But it's not our job to keep track of what we think we should weigh. We should honor our bodies by making good food choices, eating in reasonable amounts, and exercising appropriately. If we're not healthy, that's how we'll reach the right weight. But we need to trust God and not take matters into our own hands as much. He's the one who created us.

Reading your comment honestly broke my heart. reading that you think you may have a problem and no one will help you kills me. i hope that you find or have found the help and care that you need to help you through this traumatic time.
