Default Single Mum With EDNOS

I'm 24, single mom of 2 small kiddos, and I struggle daily with my weight and ED. Get a lot of mixed reviews from family and friends. Some don't want to hurt me so they lie and say I'm pretty and curvy. Others say I'm fat in all the right places. Some tell me I've let myself go and I should cover up so people don't have to see that. Others say I am a poor example to my little girl who will grow up fat like me. It's hard to determine what's true, although I do think I let my little girl down and need to shed this nasty weight so she doesn't think it's normal.

For my ED it's been EDNOS. I don't fit all the criteria for either Ana or Mia. I binge and purge, and then restrict after my purges. I've gained weight in the past few years and I've turned back to restricting and purging through two-a-day workouts. Eventually i will lose the weight again.

Sorry for the rant.

My Mood:

Well, i think all is up to you... I mean, if you are gonna change how you look for someone, do it for yourself only. There is nice amount of people that find girls with bigger weight attractive, well its better then skin and bones on level of anorexia and even worse that used to be promoted and still is till some point promoted in fashion and modelling industry. I myself though find medium weight attractive the most.

Well anyway, i do think that you shouldnt be forced to lose weight if you dont want to. You can raise your girl to not follow your way of eating and growing with more weigh then average, even if you yourself arent average.

Whatever you decide to do, we are there for you to support you
