‡ Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified

Please indicate which eating disorder criteria you DO have (not just "food issues"):

[x] binging (more than ~800 calories per sitting)
[x] restricting (under 900 calories a day)
[x] purging (vomit, laxative, diuretic, enema) after binging
[_] purging (vomit, laxative, diuretic, enema) without binging
[_] excessively exercising after eating
[x] chewing and spitting
[_] obsession with "pure" food
[x] terror of gaining weight
[x] self-worth based on looks or weight
[x] missing period
[ ] 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?
For me, thoughts of food and weight often crowd out all other thoughts, wherever I am or whatever I'm doing. I spend my days calculating calorie totals and what I think my weight will be the next morning based on what I plan to eat. It's the obsession that differentiates it from normal insecurities or even a crash diet, which may have some of the same behaviours attached.
