Hi, i'm new here. My name is ximena. I'm from mexico. I'm 13 years old, i've been bullimic for the past 2 years, but before, I always used to think about me being fat and of how guilty I felt if I ate an insignificant piece of bread. I have no self-esteem. I hate myself. And i'm just 13 years old! Help! Mom knows it, and some friends too. I actually go to a psychologist, but I still hate this girl for being so fat. I've been through much, and now I know that I won't love myself until I can change (loose weight) help me! Tell me some ways to eat just what my body needs! I don't want to be annorexic. I'd just like to be normal.

Wow. Yeah its nice to share things with someone my age... Well. The reason I started it is, mmm probably because my mom used to be bullimic, but she is kinda obsessed with her weight and she exercises a lot when she eats like very much, so I didn't want to stay behind, but I chose to throw up. Another reason is because since I was like little, I have never been happy with myself. I've always been fat (i really am) i'm a little overweight (level 1) but the thing here is I am not happy with myself, I want to be... Just... Normal. I understand perfectly about your pain at the mirror. It really sucks. I just can't smile!!!! You know something funny? I envy more a girl that is like 200 pounds but happy, that a 85 pounds girl who hates herself (like me, except I don't think im 85 pounds)

today I had a really bad day: I ate like a pig. Cookies. Butter. Bread. I threw up every little piece, I think. It hurts. I started vomiting blood. One part of me says: "stop! Please don't hurt me!" and the other says: "nooo, its your punishment for eating so much, let's go again" I hate inner battles. At the end, I just couldn't throw up more, it hurted like hell; so I got angry with myself, I found a razor and started cutting my left wrist. It actually didn't hurt at all.
Sometimes I think about suicide.
I know im in a hole.

Does it happen to you?

Happy till i'm skinny... That sounds so familiar. Well, I have no idea how much do I weigh in pounds, but i'm 153cms tall and I weight like 55kgs. My body refuses to throw up also. But I gave up last weekend. It was so depressing. I ate pizza, doughnuts, brownies... **ck! I went to a naturist store and bought... Uh I don't know how to call it, I think its chrome. In spanish is "picolinato de cromo". It reduces fat and helps you loose weight. Time ago I asked my mom if I could comsume it, but she refused to. So this time I bought it in secret. Nice. I hope it could help me.
It could help you too.
