Thanks for your posts guys. Lizzyizzy10- Thanks for the post! And thanks for the compliment too :D It means a lot.
What do you guys suggest I do now?
|Young Calorie Counters||YOUNG Calorie Counters...What did you eat today?||Aug 20 2011
Question: My diet as of right now is 900-1200 calories which seems to work for me a little bit.
Why does it have to be 1500? I feel like 1200 is a lot but 1500 is what I think will make me gain weight now lose it? Why does it have to be 1500?
Is 1000 calories a day bad? I don't feel it is.

Thanks for your posts guys I appreciate it. I just really don't think I have an ED-NOS because I mean when it comes to things like this where I freak out it only lasts about a week and so far I only did it once in May and then once in June. I haven't done it again since. So I'm not sure about the ED thing quite yet.
|Young Calorie Counters||Binge/Starve Cycle||Jul 06 2011
That was really hard to read. Not hard as in physically but just hard because those are the kinda things I want to avoid... I'd like to avoid the thought of "starving" myself all together.. At first I thought "This person has provably been healthy there whole life." then I went to your profile and felt instantly bad about it. I'm sorry and thank you.

|Young Calorie Counters||Binge/Starve Cycle||Jul 04 2011
Hi! I'm 16 and I'm 150lbs 5' 1". I've been doing the exact same thing for a week. I've become desperate to loose weight i'm willing to do anything. I will one day only eat 500 calories then the next eat 1500 calories. I feel like 1500 is wayyy to much. If anything I try to settle around 1000 calories. I know how you feel and its starting to feel like a cycle too. If anyone has any advice for me please message me.
