no im really wondering why they do. they should look in the mirror properly.
they should be more confidant with themselves as many are beautiful really, but if they lose to much weightt they end up looking horrible so it is counterproductive.

Anorexia nervosa is not a choice, it is a mental health illness, it chooses you.
Your self image & perception of yourself is extremely warped & your mind becomes very deceitful & becomes your worst enemy, which is caused from this life threatening, severe, dangerous, deadly, life long suffering illness, & you are not in control, the eating disorder controls you.

You act as though people choose this, & want this, & act like they hate themselves on purpose, & can simply just get over it.

You're completely wrong & so arrogant on this, that's crystal clear.

Arrogant is not flattering & is extremely damaging for the person on the receiving end.

I find this extremely offensive & ignorant entirely.

Know your stuff before assuming such things, it really does make you look like a fool.

Hasn't it crossed your mind that it seems illogical, because it is and because anorexia is a mental illness?

I think you may not have presented your point perfectly well. I would say the better way of posing this would be why do skinny girls want to be even skinnier. As posted above, Anorexia is on a complete different level.

Anyway, it's all about self-image, we get bombarded on a daily basis with all these great looking girls, the idea about what a girl should be like is shoved into our faces so much, we just have to try and achieve the impossible. However, it is something quite a lot of girls grow out of. We learn to love our curves if we have them, and learn to love ourselves.

While I wish they didn't feel this way, thats just the way they feel. Yeah, it seems illogical that they think they're fat when they're not, but their minds tell them they're fat. Most of the time they're not. And you telling them they shouldn't feel this way isn't helpful.

Jesus, talk about big time OTT anger at the OP. You're all hilariously self-righteous in your illness.

The answer to the OP's question is that no, people with anorexia can't see that they're normal weight or underweight.

You are the ground upon which I blizzard.

It is never a choice for anyone... Skinny, normal, or overweight. Nobody wakes up one morning and wants to be anorexic, it is the fact that they just cant bring themselves to eat because they feel fat, are afraid to become fat, or because they are afraid of others judging them because they are eating.

Not going to lie, almost heartless to post something like this.

It isn't OTT anger, we have every right to be upset.
& We are correct about our own eating disorder, considering it is, after all, our OWN illness. We know about how awful and controlling and severely distressing it is.

It certainly is OTT. His posts were naive and stupid, but not deserving of the wild acrimony. He's right. People with anorexia should learn a proper body image, and so forth. The problem is, it's not as easy to do as to say. But his naivete on that point is undeserving of the mass jump-down-throat.
