    i dont know i just felt like yelling into the void right now, so reply to this with your own vents about your cw/wanting to reach your gw/etc,etc. so we can all yell into the void together.

    i feel so miserable that im not in the double digits for my weight rn, i feel like a failure and like im not really a 'real anorexic' because im not underweight yet. i feel like once im in the double digits i'll feel like i actually deserve to have a place and say things in ED communities like this one, and ill stop feeling like a fraud all the time. im scared to weigh myself right now because im horrifed the scale is going to show me im still nowhere near double digits. i just want to feel like all of my pain has been worth something.

    sorry for being melodramatic, and no one feel the need to respond with comfort or anything i just felt like saying it and getting it out there vent about your weight (if you want) - Anorexia Discussions (8)

      I'm finally unto the low 19's with my BMI, but I don't look nearly underweight. I still look plump. My mom even said when I made a comment, "At least you don't look underweight." God I hate having physical issue that make it impossible to exercise, but at least I'm still steadily losing.¯\_(ツ)_/¯

          I'm so so fucking fat, and no matter how low I restrict and for how long, the scale number just does not want to MOVE recently. Even I can tell that I look so so much smaller, I know the weight is dropping, but the number isn't? I'm in like a 2000-2500 calorie deficit every single day yet the same number lingers. It's driving me absolutely insane because the only thing I can do at this point is to stop eating entirely. People are telling me almost daily now that I've lost so much weight in the last few weeks, but why isn't the number moving then? The fact that I have the audacity to be on a pro ana website at my weight is laughable. Fat fucking wannarexic. If I have to see the same number one more morning, I might just lose my mind

            Right now I'm just above bmi 18 and I'm so unhappy with it. I'm relieved that I've lost from my hw a month ago (bmi 19.5), but mainly I just feel this overwhelming need to be back in my "safe range" of weight. It's not even about how I Iook, but knowing that I'm hardly underweight yet makes me so stressed and insecure

            I really wish that I didn’t like my cw. I keep telling myself that I need to gain for health reasons but I’m so attached to being this thin that even a slight increase in the number on the scale would terrify me. I felt better at bmi 14-15 but increasing my intake seems impossible. It’s such a horrible feeling, I’m torn between the disordered and rational parts of my brain which makes it seem like I’m trapped in some kind of mental stasis.

                    I’ve been restricting perfectly for nearly a year and I’m still overweight, not because I’ve yo-yo’d, but because years of BED made my starting weight so high (look at the signature for the number)… I’m so tired of still being fat I just want to be underweight already I’ve been doing so well I just want it to be worth something already

                            Then, why the f*ck I cannot stop restricting and losing further? I promised myself that I will stop. Why I cannot just stop??

                              To be honest. It’s the number that bothers me a lot. Even though I’m a few pounds overweight I don’t really look it. I’m pretty proportionate and curvy so I don’t look fat. Knowing that I’m technically overweight makes me feel bigger than I am.

                                          i feel so shapeless. i hate the way i look. it's not even like my weight that bothers me that much. it's the fact that my legs are glued together. my thighs are huge. they don't fit in my pants anymore. my stomach is huge. i have 0 boobs which only brings attention to my stomach. it's like you know how some ppl are "p" shaped because of their boobs, i'm like "b" shaped because i have no boobs and the bump is where my stomach is. im sick of this shit

                                                  I really wish that I didn’t like my cw. I keep telling myself that I need to gain for health reasons but I’m so attached to being this thin that even a slight increase in the number on the scale would terrify me. I felt better at bmi 14-15 but increasing my intake seems impossible. It’s such a horrible feeling, I’m torn between the disordered and rational parts of my brain which makes it seem like I’m trapped in some kind of mental stasis.

                                                  this. I know I need it but whenever I do anything kind to myself or any of my ed symptoms start to fade I feel so guilty after. I was litterally crying this morning because I felt so cold and begging to feel warmer. I binged today and feel warm and now my brain is saying I can’t wait to feel cold and sick again. It’s awful being this torn all the time. Wish I knew what to listen to or what I want

                                                      I'm actually satisfied with the number as well as with my reflection in the mirror.

                                                      Then, why the f*ck I cannot stop restricting and losing further? I promised myself that I will stop. Why I cannot just stop??

                                                            FAQs

                                                            What are the weight classes for anorexia? ›

                                                            That being said, a BMI below 17.5 in adults is one of the common physical characteristics used to diagnose anorexia. There are also different tiers of anorexia based on BMI ranging from mild (<17.5), moderate (16-16.99), and severe (15-15.99), to extreme (<15).

                                                            What is the desired weight gain in anorexia nervosa? ›

                                                            Background: Guidelines for anorexia nervosa (AN) inpatient treatment suggest weight gain of 0.5–1.0 kg per week, but it is uncertain if this aim is reached in ordinary clinical settings. Aims: To investigate weekly rates of weight gain and associated factors during tertiary AN inpatient treatment.

                                                            How much weight do you have to lose to be considered anorexia? ›

                                                            Extreme weight loss is a significant sign of anorexia, such as when body weight drops below 15% of the expected weight for a person of that age and height, or their BMI is less than 17.5.

                                                            Does weight determine anorexia? ›

                                                            It's only anorexia that BMI is considered important. This means that someone with bulimia could have a normal BMI, but could still be unhealthy because of the impact of bulimic behaviors on their body. It's important that diagnosing and treating eating disorders isn't based on BMI or weight.

                                                            At what weight do you get hospitalized for anorexia? ›

                                                            One Place for Treatment

                                                            Admission criteria require that patients be less than 70 percent of their ideal body weight, or have a body mass index (BMI) below 15. In a woman who is 5 feet 4 inches tall, that's about 85 pounds.

                                                            How much do anorexics exercise? ›

                                                            More than 50% of anorexics use calorie-burning exercises such as running, bicycling and aerobics classes as part of the self-starvation process that characterizes the occasionally fatal disorder, during which women lose at least 25% of their ideal body weight.

                                                            How quickly can an anorexic gain weight? ›

                                                            It is not uncommon for daily caloric needs of people recovering from anorexia to reach 3,000 to 5,000 daily calories for a sufficient 1/2 pound to 2 pounds per week weight gain until achieving goal weight. This is especially true for adolescents who are still growing and young adults.

                                                            Will I get fat in Ed recovery? ›

                                                            So often early in recovery, people worry that the midsection is getting bigger. Rest assured, the fat accumulation redistributes over the course of a few months. The body gets stronger under the influence of improved nutrition, so muscle development improves, and fat cells redistribute more evenly throughout the body.

                                                            How do hospitals put on weight? ›

                                                            How to Gain Weight After an Illness
                                                            1. Eat more calories than you normally would. ...
                                                            2. Eat larger meals. ...
                                                            3. Eat snacks between meals to add to your calorie intake. ...
                                                            4. Eat more foods with healthy fats, such as avocado and salmon. ...
                                                            5. Review the nutrition labels on all the foods you eat.

                                                            What low BMI is fatal? ›

                                                            In males, a BMI of around 13 appears to be fatal. The coefficient of variation (CV) of the BMI is 8.7%. In contrast, females survive to a lower BMI of around 11, although with greater index variability (CV 14%). Several females had BMI's as low as 9 and 10.

                                                            Is a BMI of 17.5 too low? ›

                                                            The Skinny on Underweight

                                                            The American Dietetic Association (ADA) defines the ideal body mass index (BMI) as between 20 and 25. Thus, anyone below that range would be considered underweight and those with a BMI from 18.5 to 17.5 extremely underweight.

                                                            What BMI do you need to be hospitalized? ›

                                                            for hospitalization:

                                                            BMI < 13 is an indicatior for certification under the Mental Health Act if the patient refuses admission although BMI < 13 alone is not enough for admission.

                                                            Can I have anorexia if I'm not underweight? ›

                                                            A person does not need to be underweight to have anorexia. Larger-bodied individuals can also have anorexia. However, they may be less likely to be diagnosed due to cultural stigma against fat and obesity. In addition, someone can be underweight without having anorexia.

                                                            How do you develop anorexia? ›

                                                            The exact causes of anorexia nervosa are unknown. However, the condition sometimes runs in families; young women with a parent or sibling with an eating disorder are likelier to develop one themselves. Then there are psychological, environmental, and social factors that may contribute to the development of anorexia.

                                                            When does anorexia become serious? ›

                                                            The disorder is diagnosed when a person weighs at least 15% less than their normal/ideal body weight. Extreme weight loss in people with anorexia nervosa can lead to dangerous health problems and even death.
