[X] I answered the question below
What do you feel is the difference between your attitudes/behaviors and those of someone who has normal insecurities about her body? i have a desperate need to be small, skinny, whatever you would like to call it. i am sure that as soon as i walk into a room, people are sniggering behind my back, about how overweight i am, how wide my ass is. i have to talk myself into eating, while my daughter is awake, and i always know that it was too much (350-400 calories a day). as soon as i finish eating, i weigh myself, once she is in bed, i start working out, and keep going till i burn two or three times as many calories as i ate.
im not sure if i missed anything, so please let me know and i will amend it.
p.s no bowing:) no one should have to lower their head to me...
