ED: diagnosed- "borderline anorexia" self-diagnosed- ED-NOS
Diagnosed/Self-diagnosed?: see above
My biggest pet peeve about ED communities: when people do posts ranting about their 200-calorie "binge." my binges are FAR MORE than 200 calories. try 2,000 to 3,000 calories in one sitting. that'll make you gain weight for sure.
Questions/comments/concerns: i think i have ED-NOS because i binge at least once a week and take laxatives and dieuretics to purge the food. when i'm not bingeing, i fast or eat less than 800 cals. i did not tell the doctor this, hence the "borderline anorexia" diagnosis. i was 5'4 112 lbs at the time of diagnosis and my period was irregular. now, i am trying this new thing where i eat 1,000 cals per day. no food is off-limits. i am allowing myself junk food in moderation. i plan to slowly lose the last few lbs, then maintain at a BMI of 16.5 by eating around 1,300 cals per day (i'll have to do trial and error to find the exact number). my question is: will i still be considered as having an eating disorder if i maintain at a BMI of 16.5 but do not obsess over food or starve and binge?
