My story

well, first off I think it's important to say that I don't think I have an e.d.

I started getting bullied in 9th grade. I was about 14 years old when it all started. Kids would tell me that I was fat and that I ate a lot! A friend of my moms would always, always be like "wow, you eat sooo much. My kids don't eat half as much as you eat in one day!" I never thought that I was fat or ugly, but after being told how fat I was and how I ate a lot I started looking at myself in the mirror more closely. I started getting really self conscious and started to believe what everyone was saying about me. In ninth grade I started starving myself, but when I still was getting made fun of I decided that starving myself wasn't enough. I started exercising like crazy!!! I even tried to make myself throw up a couple of times, but it didn't work. I'm such a baby! Anyway, I'm 17 now and struggle very much with it. I try to eat and not think about it, but I feel like no matter what I eat, I'm gaining TONS of weight! Sometimes I'll eat for a couple days, and then I'll feel EXTREMELY guilty about it(not to mention fat!) I hate eating in front of people. I get really nervous and feel really uncomfortable whenever I do. I used to count calories, but I'm not really paranoid with it. I feel sooo fat though!!!!!!!!!! I feel extremely uncomfortable in just about everything except for sweatpants and sweatshirts. Anyway, this was my story. Thanks for taking the time to read it. I feel bad like I'm waisting your time by posting this. . . so if I am, I'm sorry. :(

Dear melony
please dont feel bad for posting this,
i have gone thru somewhat that you are going thru.
but dont give up if you want to lose weight.
do it for yourself NOT because off peer pressure
or what people think of you. And remember God loves you the way you are.

I so do understand your story because I lived it! Growing up I would hear these words all of the time from my dad, don't eat too much or you'll get fat. your going to eat all of that? Those words dug deep. So deep that I stopped eating for a couple of months. Exercised alot! I even tried eating then making myself throw up but I couldn't. I did lose weight and everyone at school would say, wow! You look great! Then I started fainting. More then once, alot! My dad would take me to the doctor. They couldn't figure out why I was fainting, everything looked good. I did start eating again, I had too! That was when I was a teenager now I'm a much older and have grown in Christ so much since then. Yes, words hurt. When you hear those words grab them up in a ball with your hands and throw them in the garbage. That is where they belong because those words are lies from the devil. The devil will do anything in his power to kill, steal and destroy us. So by throwing those lies into the garbage your showing the devil that he's not going to win in your life. Then replace those lies with God's truth. Speak out loud I am worthy, I am beautiful, I am loved, I am special, I am cute, I am adored, I am set free from those lies. God is in love with you so much that he sent his one and only son to die for you. So next time someone says your fat to you. Take that those words throw them away and say I am God's creation and I am beautiful! Beacause that is the truth!
