|As for depression, I wouldn't say so, he's a pretty happy guy.|
|The Lounge||My boyfriend doesn't like sex...||Feb 18 2012
|He's 21 and his child is two, almost three years old. I lost my virginity to him so I'm obviously very attached to him but we used to have sex more often then he just...didn't want to anymore. It really hurts my self confidence. But it could be likely that he may have something wrong, I was planning on getting him a doctors appointment soon anyway. I really hope this works...because I have needs haha :(|

|Young Calorie Counters||Healthy or not??||Nov 04 2011
thank you! :D
But, you never want to go by what your friends say is right/wrong :P Especially in this case. Most people when they start showing signs of disordered eating, are usually at a healthy weight. Don't do what most people, including me, did when we fell into this trap. We refused to ask for help, or didn't even realize we needed it, and ended up a lot more severe into the disease than originally. There are counselors that specialize in eating disorders, I'm sure there's one nearby you. :)
But nope, don't worry, it's good that you are getting this out and realizing you have a problem! That's the first step to recovery :D
Kick this in the butt before it takes over.
P.S. every girl is beautiful in her own way, so try and see that :) everyday, when you look in the mirror, tell yourself one thing you find beautiful about yourself, whether its an interior or exterior beauty.
|Young Calorie Counters||How old were you when you had your first kiss?||Nov 02 2011

|Young Calorie Counters||Healthy or not??||Nov 02 2011
Well, I went through anorexia for about a year and now i'm pretty much fully recovered, but anyway.
You are showing signs of an eating disorder, yes. Especially if you haven't had your period...that's a given that you need to try and get past this. I'm 5'2 right now, and I weigh the same as you do. So you are definitely not overweight, you're a little under-average, your weight is okay but you could afford to gain a few more lbs.
Trust me, before this gets even worse, I would talk to a counselor...a lot of anorexia/bulimic problems lead to binging, what I went through after anorexia. Not to mention, the consequences of an anorexia/bulimia can be serious, one of them being infertility. I'm sure you want kids one day, don't you?
I learned to accept that I am beautiful even if I am a little chubby, even though, most people say I'm not but we're always the worst judges of ourselves.
All you have to do to keep in shape is moderate exercise, eating healthy, taking your vitamins, etc. Don't worry about calories all the time. Just eat a healthy well-balanced meal, full of fiber and protein (things that fill you up) until you feel satisfied.
Good luck and feel free to message me anytime if you need any advice :)

|Foods||Food survey for the bored||Oct 25 2011
|Foods||Is canned chicken good for you?||Oct 25 2011
anything in a can is less nutritious than fresh, but it's not bad for you. try and get the kind with less sodium, and no oils, just all in water. that's the best option :)
|Foods||Is multigrain flat bread count as whole grain? New fod ideas?||Oct 25 2011
Flat bread is whole grains, we basically want whole grains because they're higher in fiber and protein. So yep, flat bread would be a good choice.
Also, for other protein ideas...greek yogurt, edamames (roasted or not), go lean kashi cereal, soy milk, protein bars...to name a few
|Foods||What do you eat nearly every day?||Oct 22 2011

The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
