Default Not sure if this is an eating diorder

I am concerned about how i look and how fat I feel. I really don't eat much and I'm getting skinnier. I used to weigh around upper 160's. I'm in the 140's now and I don't want to look skinny. I still haven't been able to get myself to work out again regularly. I was lifting weights to bulk up before, but got depressed and stopped, partly because I was so weak from not eating. Now though, I plan my meals around sleep pills I take every night. They work better on a completely empty stomach, which i know I'm not supposed to do, but I don't really care to be honest. Here's how my meals work if I eat a lot. I wake up, don't eat anything until about 2-3pm. Then I don't eat anything until right after I take sleep stuff, usually around 10pm. I don't eat because the sleep is more important to me. I need it to help me get through the night to knock me out. Would you consider this an eating disorder to talk to my therapist about? Thanks.

I'd suggest bringing it up to him for sure, but I wouldn't jump to conclude that it's an eating disorder just yet

I mean I know I'm not fat weight-wise, but I feel fat, like just not toned in certain areas anymore...

That is expected when you have bad nutrition.

Do you?

I think you would know if you were eating healthy. If you wonder about an eating disorder, chances are that you already know something's not right. It's worth talking to her about to see what she says.

I personally wouldn't see it as a disorder, just that you're depressed and that causes lack of appetite and willingness to eat. I get like that too. But it is good to bring up with him just in case.
