its not worth it. every time you lose weight, it is never enough. you won't be able to satisfy that desire to be small. trust me, i know. i feel it evry waking moment, and it will ruin your quality of life. it will become something beyond your control, and it will eventually snowball. don't do it. its not worth it.

Celebrate who you are

Hey there:)
Can I ask why you want to have a flat stomach? It doesn't sound like you want, or need, to do it for health reasons... It honestly just sounds like you have an unhealthy fascination with being "skinny" when the body type you have right now is perfectly fine. After reading your post, it also seems like you have a constant battle going on inside your head concerning the things you eat and how they reflect on your body. It's like your perception of yourself is morphing into something that you're not going to be able to control if you keep letting it control you.

Is there anything you like about yourself? I'd like to encourage you to focus on REALITY. First, take a look at who you really are in the mirror. Silence the voices in your head that say you could/should be this and that, and note the beauty in each feature of your body, especially your stomach. Second, take a look at the reality of the human body period. Most girls' thighs touch, and no matter how many lunges you do, or how much weight you lose, they'll probably still touch. To have thighs that don't touch is an unrealistic goal and pursuing that goal will get you into lots of trouble. While you may achieve that goal one day, you'll realize that you lost so much of the things you liked about your body in the process (e.g. other parts of your body will face major weight loss before you see what you'd like to see in your thighs...and even then you probably won't be happy). Set REALISTIC goals for yourself and present them to a nutritionist to approve.

Hope this helps.
