(no subject)

This is kind of a really random question, but I can't find anything to do with it anywhere, and since it's weight related I was hoping that maybe someone on here would have an idea? 

My BMI is about 20 right now, so I'm still getting my period on a regular basis. My BMI used to be 31, which put me in the obese category, thing is, back then, my period's never really hurt me much, and they didn't affect my daily life. As I lost weight, I realised that I got much stronger period pains than I used to before, and now they really drain me, my energy gets really low. All of my friends, who had(and still have) healthy BMIs have always suffered from really bad period pains, but all the ladies that I know who have a BMI of over 26 have told me that they don't get period pains, and even if they do, it's a really dull ache that goes away after an asprin.
I was wondering if there's a possible link between BMI and how much your period hurts?
There probably isn't a connection, and it's just coincidence that all the people that I know follow this pattern, but it was just a random thought that came in to my head, so I thought I'd ask :)


(sorry if it's not worded very well, its 1:45am, and even though I'm very tired, I can't sleep..)

How do you binge?

How do you binge?

Do you graze? Impulse grab the first thing you see. Do you plan it? Do you binge, purge mid binge, and binge some more? Do you have several hundred or several thousand calories- or somewhere inbetween. Anything else I didn't cover?

I know I just updated but- Apple Cider Vinegar

So, between my OCE and Bulimia I had a time where I barely ate, exercised a nice bit, purged after normal meals, and religiously drank apple cider vinegar. Foul stuff, I do not recommend it. The stinch gives me a headache. I'd take a 'shot' of it, with in seconds be on my bed in the fetal position with a stomach ache (I think this is mostly because of my stomach problems). I've recently been thinking about how I want to start drinking it again. To help me stop my binge habits, which in turn will help me stop purging. By chance my parents bought a big thing of the stuff to give to our constipated dying goats (perhaps it will get my bowls moving properly again too?). I read on a website about it, a bit back, apparently it's really healthy stuff.

Anyway- Has anyone else ever drank this stuff? If so, did it hurt your stomach? I just made a mixture, its about a cup of liquid total. 2/3rds apple cider vinegar, one third milk. With some cinnamon and vanilla flavoring. I'm afraid to drink it. Also, has anyone tried something odd like this in attempts to help aid recovery?

I just realized I'm going to have to refrigerate it due to the milk. Perhaps I could stuff it in the fridge, make a nice frosty treat... I've yet to try it, perhaps I should. Perhaps I should take some orejel... After numbing my tongue with ice...

OMFG. I'm literally going to throw up I think. Note: DO NOT DO TRY THIS AT HOME. The orajel didn't help much. The extra stuff made it taste better, it burned going down. HOW DID I EVER DRINK THIS CRAP! My questions still stand out of curiosity though. I'm going to have to find something better to do... Green Tea upons vast amounts of gum when I feel like binging? :\
