I wanted to write this post on what life is like for one anorexic, no names will be mentioned in this post but it is related to reality.
Wake up, think about the day, calculate walking, calories burned and then set limits. The past week per day has been 1130,1160,1120,880, 410 and today 1130. Walk at least 3 miles daily with last night being logged at 15, yes you read that right. Now a trip to Wendys involves staring at the menu and googling calories and then eating could easily consume 2 hours because to inhale would be against the rules. Grocery shopping involves calories calculation and how long the food will last. A running tally of cals is kept for self notes, but there isn't a problem so she says or maybe there are deeper troubles.
I can't imagine life like that but wanted to share and this is round two, its a relapse from several years ago and she says its out to play. I would recommend if any of this seems real, get help. It doesn't take long to take hold and recovery can take years. You don't have to be skinny to have an eating disorder.
