I understand and can relate to your feelings. I know exactly what I need to do and how to do it I just can't seem to find the motivation to get started. I just need to make myself and stop the "I will get started tomorrow" that has been my thought for about 4 months now.Sad

Use that angry energy to burn off the calories! It will eventually happen with a sensible diet and exercise at least 5 times a week. I have a long way to go myself.

Nevermind, I was mistaken. According to your profile, you weigh 93 lbs... and are trying to get to 80lbs. So yeah, either a midget, or an idiot.

That's uncalled for. She(he?) could very well be suffering from a eating disorder. Which doesn't make her an idiot, it's a mental illness.

By the way, nobody ever made a positive change in their life because somebody else made them feel bad about themselves.

On this site, I've learned never to judge someone by a number. Maybe she IS 4 feet tall. You don't know. Maybe she's ten. It's the internet. She could be anybody.

Regardless of whether she's short or young or has an ED, she is welcome here.

I understand how you feel..I COMPLETELY understand. Take one meal and focus on eating healty and fulfilling. Then take the next meal. Somewhere in the day, make a goal of walking for 10 minutes, see how you feel. If you feel up to it, walk five more. I can feel so overwhelmed so fast with trying to lose weight, and sometimes, making it one small step is so much easier than saying "god I have to lose fifty freaking pounds!!!" Good luck, you can do it. One small step...

Why would you call someone an idiot, especially here?? This is supposed to be for support and motivation...not criticism!!

Golden Rule:
If you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say anything at all

worldmuseum-don't get discouraged! we ALL have those times in our journey that make us want to give up, just remember:

'We either make ourselves miserable or we make ourselves strong, the amount of work is the same'

Hope you're feeling much better!! Have a great week!

Do people read her profile? She is 93 lbs with a goal weight of 80 lbs!! Yes, she may be only ten years old. If that's the case instead of trying to lose weight, she needs to just maintain her current weight and allow her body to grow into it.

It will be a GOOD thing for her to give up "this journey". Please don't encourage very young girls and/or people with distorted body image to go down a dangerous path.

Maybe her journey is to find a way to love her body in a healthy state. We all have a different journey to take.

In any case, we should make her feel welcome. Better here, where she can get the views of some of us who have been down that path and turned around, than some Pro-Ana site where she will get only destructive advice.

@Kate, I agree with you, but I am baffled at all those people who seemed to agree with her that she is too fat and needs encouragement in dieting.

I think most people don't go check the profile before responding.

But then again, you can't really trust the profile either! Once, I did the same thing and PMed this person who had listed her weight something really low and looking to go lower. And the person wrote back that she wasn't really that weight, she was too embarrassed to put her real weight. You just never know. We know nothing about the OP, and unless she comes back to fill us in (or he) we never will. But we can't assume anything. Especially that she's an "idiot".

I definitely agree with you also BTW, that young underweight girls shouldn't be dieting... but they are going to. The best we can do is try to steer them toward a healthier way.

I agree with Kate, maybe we should help this person and find out the whole situation rather than making them feel worse than they already do.

Being as I am 4'10 I can honestly say that when I was about 13 or 14 I weighed 85 pounds - which looked healthy so perhaps she (he) is young and is vertically challenged. Gaining even 2 pounds when your short can look like you gained 20 which really is disheartening.

You say you want a cheeseburger but all I hear is "I need love" - a comic strip on the fridge at work.

You have failed only when you quit trying. Until then, you're still in the act of progression. So, never quit trying and you'll never be a failure.

I didn't call anybody an idiot. I just used some deductive reasoning and came up with two choices. (S)he might be 4 ft tall... and k8yk... I really hope (s)he's not 10 and worried about losing weight to the point of tracking their daily food intake...not at that age...

And what if (s)he does have an eating disorder? Should we be encouraging that? "Yeah, don't be down, go ahead and eat even less so you can get down to that boney 80lbs!!! In fact, why not just start throwing up everything you eat, that way you'll get there even faster? hooray to ignorance!!! yaaaay!!!"

I wasn't trying to imply anything about body image---just to not get discouraged as we all have bad times. We each have our own journey in life, whether it's to lose weight, gain weight, build self confidence, be more outgoing, or just to be happy. I'm sorry if my post was taken the wrong way, that was not my intention.

That's really supportive. Rolling Eyes

What if she IS short and sensitive about it? Seriously, what could possibly the point of this insulting post? It is not in any way useful. How could that post help anybody?

Alright... so it wasn't supportive and it certainly isn't going to help anybody... but so what? Is posting about it, focusing on it, and even quoting the comment going to make things better? People need to stop being so sensitive. And even in the rare instance that it did offend somebody, what harm could it really have done? All of these comments just seem like an overreaction cause by... boredom maybe? Which is how my comment came about in the first place...
