Day 151 by ErinBird Day 151 by ErinBird
Name : bEAuTy ~ 151.366

Too many people are starving themselves to be thin . It's just awful to know that people think looking like a skeleton is the way to be pretty . It also seriously messes up your health . I know this because I've been through this whole 'not eating to look pretty' stage . It's something I'm really not proud of .

Enjoy , comment & fave !

As a person who's been dealing with being overweight and ugly, I would kill hundreds of people to be thin! So I can understand why some girls and even men would starve and diet just to feel normal...

Hi! I never knew that you were underweight! I really love your photography as I think I've said before - this one is no exception. I love how you cover a range of different subjects when doing quote/writing photography :heart: At the moment I'm suffering with an eating disorder myself and I just wondered if you wouldn't mind telling me about your experiences and how you came through it? Maybe note me? (:

An eating disorder is not actually a 'stage' or a 'phase'. Some people might go through a starvation phase, or purge a few meals, but that is not what an eating disorder is...

I know , I was only referring to this type of eating disorder when people have an eating problem on purpose to lose weight . I was only talking about one type , but actually I know there are many types and that a lot of people either born with it or develop it over time etc ..

It's not even an eating disorder when you do it on purpuse and you can still stop.
It's ok, just saying.

Actually , it's not always like that :/ Some people can stop eating and ovetime their body will learn how to reject food . They then find it difficult to eat anything because their body will just reject it all . But then again , this only happens in extreme cases .

Yeah over time they will devellop a real eating disorder, but as long as they can still stop without any side effects and they just go on with their normal life routines, it's not an eating disorder. An eating disorder is a disease.
I am one of those extreme cases. I have had bulimia since my early teens after I got sexually abused. I have been severely underweight, normal weight, underweight again, ... over the past 7-8 years.
I'm at 119lbs , 6' now. And I just got out of the hospital, I know what an eating disorder is.

Ok , I'm sorry :/ I didn't want to offend you or make you mad , I was just simply putting in this picture that being skinny isn't what being beautiful is - I wasn't meaning to go down this route of arguing over what an eating disorder was . I'm sorry about your case , I hope you will be okay <3 . I wish you all the best :hug: .
