I know this probably has been approached but not the way I want to approach it.
How does anorexia start? I mean, I know that it can happen from one day to the next and most people talk about the actual symptoms to diagnose anorexia, but what are the warning signals? Specially those signals to oneself.

I have lost some weight in the past month, about 15 pounds and now I have become obsessed about weight and eatting and counting calories, so I don't know if those are warning signs. I work out everyday, I eat two bowls of cereal a day and I still see fat all over me and the idea of getting fatter just scares me to death. I don't think I have developed anorexia because if I want chocolate I'll eat it anyway, but it makes me feel extremely guilty and then I spend hours in the mirror looking at the fat and how much weight I have gained from that bag of chocolates.

So, I wonder if there are warning signs for anorexia and bulimia, before actually being called an anorexic or bulimic.

I am actually afraid that I might have lost all reality of my body and all I can see is the disgusting fat there now.
