    I am a chronic bulimic (AN-BP), and my gut health is in an extremely bad state. Whether it be crippling constipation, never-ending explosive diarrhea, extreme water retention or just general discomfort, I AM IN PAIN. I know the ultimate cessation of bulimic behavior will help, but does anybody...
  2. EDNOS Discussions
    I just got out of hospital for a surgery, and so I've been stuck in bed for about 3 weeks unable to move. I've put on a little bit of weight and I'm feeling super bummed about it. I have noticed that now that I'm in the 50's (53), I actually have quite a defined waist and hourglass shape (24"...

    I haven't been on in a while, but this brought me back. My doctor has recommended that I go on a soft foods/liquid diet. She knows of my history with anorexia and knows I currently suffer with BED. She doesn't think it will affect me because over the past 3 years I have become obese and if...
  4. Anorexia Discussions
    This sounds so crazy. But, I just cannot make myself believe the opinions of the people I know. Everyone around me says how thin I look & how I need to stop losing weight, that I look "emaciated", that I look skeletal. People say that I "am dying". During an argument the other night, my fiance...

    Just curious how many of you developed anorexia as a result of pre-existing stomach issues? MY ED has definitely progressed due to my stomach looking pregnant and acting up if I eat. I have to take laxatives so that I am regular in the bathroom (not caused by ED). It's like the pain of being...

    Hey guys. I’m comfortable with the look of my arms and shoulders/back but I’ve always been really self conscious about my stomach and my thighs. I don’t workout anymore and I don’t do any ab exercises so I’m thinking I’ll try starting that to try to slim down my stomach. But what do you guys do...

    I've had an ED for 8+ years, mostly EDNOS because my weight fluctuated all over the place from underweight for a few months, then normal, then underweight again. I was semi recovered from Summer until after Thanksgiving. Then I started restricting and dropped 10 pounds by the end of the year...
  9. Exercise
    I hate crunches with a vengeance but I also hate my distended "beer gut". What's a lazy bish to do? Has anyone whose gotten results from stomach vacuuming start out with big belly?
  10. Anorexia Discussions
    I don't know what to do anymore. I'm so desperate, I just want the fat in my thighs and belly to go away especially my belly. I also have so much lower back fat that just won't go away. Every time I wear a cute outfit and look in the mirror I get insecure and end up wearing a sweatshirt. I'm so...

    Does anyone have any tips to get a flat stomach? If you have a flat tummy how did you do it?
  12. EDNOS Discussions
    When my ED was at its worst, I got so used to being hungry that being full would make me anxious. Then I was put into a situation of forced "recovery", (I wasn't put into a hospital or anything, and my family didn't even realize just how bad things were at that point. I was just made to move...
  13. Anorexia Discussions
    While I enjoy hunger pangs disappearing once you've fallen back into a routine of restricting/fasting more, I hate when even small things make you feel full to the point of pain. I fasted yesterday, then had to get up early to dog-sit. I grabbed a ninety-calorie protein bar, and ate it slowly. I...

    Okay so this is become soooo frustrating for me. I keep switching between workouts every week, (I'm the most indecisive person in the world), and I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions. What has been the most effective exercises for you guys? I know that you can't target a specific area on...
  15. Exercise
    I know that the only way to tone your stomach is to lose fat in order to reveal the muscle underneath, but did any of you find that certain exercises helped give you a more toned stomach? I'm an underweight bmi yet my stomach is still kind of.. soft? Its almost flat but theres no definition and...
