    Weight Gain (PLEASE HELP)

    I think I'm eating too much. My medication is supposedly the least weight-gain of them all, but I don't believe it. I've gained a lot of weight these past three years. I used to be at 98lbs. Now I'm closer to 150 (our scale broke so I don't know for sure). I went from a comfy size 0 to a size...

    Parents are controlling

    I am 35 living with my father and he still tries to control how I eat. I don't think it is his privilege to tell me how to eat. I think my parents' controlling behavior plays biological and nurturing influence into why I had eating disorders from 15 to 30. It is frustrating. He tries to...

    What's wrong with me?

    It is so frustrating how little I eat yet I still manage to have fat on me. Other girls my age eat mountains, but they're skinny. I have a friend who is an identical twin; both she and her sister eat nearly thrice the amount I do, but they look like models. I'm not a jealous person, however...

Taken anti-depressants for it on and off and stomached the strength to attend a presentation about various group therapy sessions but didn't take it any further.

    I'm not sure if this counts..

    I've heard the term selective eating disorder. I'm pretty sure it's something I have, if it's even a thing. I basically can't eat anything unless it appeals to every sense. Like It has to look good, taste good, feel good to chew, smell good, can't make any weird sounds while you eat it (if...

    I'm a twenty-seven year old female with the bone structure best suited for women with a small, curvaceous frame. I hate my weight. I feel like it's holding me back from reaching my greatest physical potential. It also makes me highly insecure. I constantly feel inferior to smaller women. I feel...
