This site is not about having a disease. It is not about being a victim of any kind. This site is about looking in the
mirror and hating what you see.
Please note: Anorexia is NOT a diet. Bulimia is NOT a weight-loss plan. Eating
disorders are serious and dangerous and they are not something you can catch or learn. This site does not, in any way, intend
to encourage any person to travel down the road of eating disorders.
If your relationships with food and body image are already beyond "normal" no matter what you weigh, whether
normal, under, or over weight, then this site is for you.

It is my thinking that there is something out there that can only be described as Borderline Anorexia. I would define
this as having the mental state of an anoretic (i.e. hating your body, wanting to see your bones, wishing you had the self
control to restrict your calories, etc.) but not looking severely underweight.
I believe that there is also something that can be called Disordered Eating. This is when you cut out certain groups
of food, like breads of fats or what have you, displaying anorexic behaviors, but you don't go so far as to not eat and
maintain a normal, if low, weight. Or perhaps you throw up only occasionally, not bingeing, just eating a slightly larger
meal and then feeling the need to rid yourself of it.
If either or both of these things sound familiar to you, trust that you are not alone*. I feel the very same
way and that is why I created this website.
*It has been brought to my attention the diagnosis of Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified, or ED-NOS.
The things I describe here on my site fall, to the best of my knowledge, under this category of eating disorders.
