Name : Eat something ~ 197.366

Anorexia is an increasing eating disorder that is rising each year . More and more younger children and teens are starving themselves to become thinner . For what ? Soicety ? Society sucks . Society is the one that screams "You need to become thin to get pretty." Its actually sickening .. and there are some websites that encourage anorexia with 'pro-ana tips' and advice on how to become thinner .. it's awful .

Today I was just having a lazy day and i've seen an idea of this picture before .. it made me really want to do it my own way .

Enjoy , comment & fave ! ☮

I remember sitting at my lunch table one day with a couple of friends and one of my friends was talking about how she was trying to lose weight (and she was actually doing pretty well) and this girl told her she should just not eat because 'that was what so and so did and she lost like ten pounds in a week'. I actually yelled at the girl who had said that because anorexia is just not something you casually talk about as a diet solution, it's a real problem. Any-who, beautiful photo, love the message it gives. :)

I'm glad you did tell that girl off because it annoys me how people encourage others to diet and lose weight by not eating. It's the worst thing ever! Even more so when mass media tv shows joke about not eating to diet too as that heavily influences people to not eat. Also, not eating isn't even that effective as you add the weight very quickly back on again when returning to a normal eating pattern. When people say you need to eat well and exercise to lose weight - they know what they're talking about!

It's weird because if you starve yourself, your body holds on to every little piece of food so starving yourself can make everything worse.

Yes that's actually very true, and if you try to return after a normal diet after starving yourself for a while, you just add on weight extremely quickly

oh right yeah! Yeah there's a whole side of twitter and tumblr that's just pro-ana blogs and it's really sickening because it just encourages other to have an ED and that's just wrong

Seriously, they only listen to other peoples opinion.. they need to listen to their own mind!

that's not always true . A lot of people see it in their own minds that they're "fat" or have many problems with their body , it doesn't have to be anyone else's opinion . I knew someone who was anorexic , and no one ever said anything negative about her body and such , but it was her own opinions on her body that made her want to be thinner . It's not always other people's opinions that influence anorexia . "listen to their own mind" ? what if their minds are telling them to be thinner ?

.. was that supposed to be funny ? Because that really hurt my feelings . Anorexia isn't something to joke about .. and Sam would never laugh at something as serious as that . He's actually really admired by how strong I was to overcome it . Please don't joke about it again .
