Default I dont know what this is...can you help me?

I am almost 15 and weigh around 40kg. My bmi says I am underweight but I want to be thinner. I never feel like what I look like is good enough. When I look in the mirror, I see fat. I know I don't have an eating disorder but I just wanted to have some opinions because I don't really know what this means. Another thing is, I like losing weight. I'm not sure why it just makes me feel as if I've achieved something. If I put on a bit of weight I feel horrible about it and want to eat less to lose weight. Sometimes I will skip breakfast or lunch, but not necessarily because I want to lose weight. A lot of the time, I just don't feel hungry. But it also makes me feel happier because eating less will also mean I will lose weight. I'm not quite sure what all of this means, so some opinions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Look Maya. Even though i haven't seen you, I bet you look amazing. But your personality outshines it all. You really don't need to change yourself for anyone, OK?

I'm not sure but it might be anorexia. The best advice I can give you is that you concentrate on something else. Maybe try and feel achievement in prolonging your self harm or something.

We can talk about this later if you want cutie. xx

Fuck em all.

Except you cutie.

Shit I didn't even see this thread, sorry.

Maya, it sounds like you have an eatting disorder, a bad one, 40KG is not healthy. I've never seen you, but like SeaFood I'd bet you look fine, if not great.
I've seen people with eating disorders waste away, and in one case, die. You should go to a doctor asap and see what he says, and like SeaFood said, try to focus on other things, build something, improve your social life, just get your mind in other places.

My names Joe, but you can call me "Lord and master of all space and time"
I'm Bisexual, deal with it
Ask me shit

Hi, thanks for your advice. Although I know somethings not quite right, I'm pretty sure I don't have an eating disorder. I think its quite normal for the BMI to not be so accurate on me (I'm a different nationality).
I'm trying to focus on other things but I'm kind of in that mind set where I don't want to do anything and I feel like nobody wants me. I don't know how to get out of it...

Weight isn't the only defining factor of a person, most of people wont care how much you weigh, someone will always want yoiu no matter what, you don't have to worry so much about your weight.

I know, its not specifically just my weight...more what I look like in general. I know its stupid and I shouldn't care so much but I can't help it.

Honestly, I'm a lot of the same way, just to both extremes instead of one. When I get thin, I like to exercise constantly, starve myself, lose weight. Sometimes I even purge. When I get to be a little heavier, I feel great, and I want to exercise to build muscle. I obsess over high-caloric diets, and high protein, and I binge a lot.

I always see this perfect picture of what my body *could* be, and it just never measures up. I hate looking at myself in the mirror when I'm in a swimsuit/etc. because of it.

But in the long run, making sure that you're healthy is far more important a goal. I feel like a bit of a hypocrite because I can't let go of unreasonable aspirations myself, but honestly, it's better to be healthy.

Its not being hypocritical, you're just trying to help
I want to stop it before it gets out of hand, and I'm starting to eat more now but the thoughts in my head are just getting worse.

I understand. I hope you can, it's a terrible thing to have to go through.

¡Cheer up! You don't need to be like a Victoria Secret Model (their photos aren't real , most of these girls touch up them) ... So , be yourself
But don't eat an excesive amount of junk food just to increase your weight , because eating unhealthy food may give you important diseases when you are older ...
