Hi, i'm 13 years old and I am confused about my body. I am 5'8" which is alot taller than all my friends by almost 3 inches. Because I am so tall, and my friends are so small they seem to be alot skinner than me. I don't think I'm anorexic because I do eat everyday because my mum makes me, but I don't want to eat. I try to eat as little as I can and weigh myself every morning and evening and despite losing 7 lbs over the past few months, I still look in the mirror and feel fat. I haven't lost any weight in the past few weeks and am still about 7 stone 5. Also I
haven't had a boyfriend in a while and all the boys I want to go out with are intrested in my friends, so by not eating I think it will make me more appealing to the boys.
What can I do?!
