I suffer from an eating disorder. While I sometimes look at these posts, I‘m disgusted by pro ana.

I use pro ana tumblr to trigger myself we love that

I looked up to see what it was about (that’s not super risky for me since I am already thin and fine with my body, and I already know everything about anorexia, and also if I would want to get in better shape and not die, I know how, and that doesn’t involve starving soo) So I looked up some websites, and I think that what made me the most sad, is that I find a girl who was my age, my weight and my height, and she was talking about losing 10 kg more (it was her goal) And I don’t know, I am already thin, my bmi is like 18, (it’s just at the limit) So I knew she was looking for a bmi of like 14-15 And It really scared me. Also all these « thinspo » pictures... It made me feel ill. They weren’t only posting like thigh gaps and stuff, they were literally aiming for ribs cage! Why on earth would they want to look like a squeleton? Also they are so delusional about being thin. I know because I have been thin all my life, and seriously... « Boys love skinny girls » wrong boys love chubby girls. proven by a lifelong of observations. « People will love you if you are skinny » wrong it triggers bullying, jealousy and hate. « You can wear everything you want if you are skinny » Soooo wrong. Never heard of the « skinny girls can’t wear black jeans? » I have been dying for a cute look in these. You have no idea of the boring fashion choices I have to make in order to make my hips look wider than my shoulders. So I hope I have debunked some of these fake promises. Please don’t seek skinny, it won’t solve your problems (maybe it will if you’re diabetic, but that’s all XD) and it will clearly not get you a boyfriend. No skinny girl naturally has breast anyway, and boys generally like breasts.

I had what I will refer to as a long standing anorexic-type eating disorder since I was young. I do have a body dysmorphia disorder too. I wouldnt chew gum bc calories. I would give myself diarrhea with the amount of sugar free hard candy I was eating (bc it was tricking me into feeling like I was having sweets). I wouldnt eat in front of people and I exercised every day for hours after work. I got a bad stomach flu and I remember being happy bc I was so ill I couldnt really eat for the better part of the week. I was never happy with how I looked no matter how thin I became. I'm vegan now, and I try to maintain a healthy eating lifestyle (I no longer weigh myself and I wear a normal size for my height and body type), but I am still sensitive to any type of comments on my body and on the days I feel slightly too close to where I was, I wear long sleeves and big clothes bc it comforts me to not be "seen".

TRIGGER WARNING Pro ana and pro Mia stuff online (even before Tumblr when it was on random websites) almost killed me. When my ED was horrible coming across pro eating disorder stuff online took my ED from horrible to deadly. I was dual diagnosed (anorexia and bulinia) underweight. Throwing up 10-20 times per day. Throwing up blood, passing out, binging and purging, thinking I'm morbidly obese while literally underweight. this went on for over 5 years and nearly killed me. My mom refused to get me help because she thought it was a choice and that I was doing it just for attention so she would drive me around and scream at me and ground me and take my phone of I got caught purging or wasn't eating. She refused to put me in therapy or get me any kind of help because "I was a useless brat who wanted attention" eventually my ED brought me so low that I attempted suicide. It wasn't until I woke up in the hospital after an intentional overdose, disappointed that it didn't work, that I realized I needed serious help and if my mom refused to help me I needed to find it elsewhere. I ended up telling my nurse at the hospital. My mom was eventually threatened with being charged with child neglect by a social worker. She finally reluctantly got me help (put me in a psych ward, got me a therapist) but she would scream at me and tell me how selfish and disgusting I was on the way to every appointment with my therapist. Today it's March 11th, 2019. I've lost track of how many years it's been since I've been in remission/recovery from my eating disorder. It's an addictiom and I still struggle with old habits and have to make a huge effort every day not to fall back into old behaviors and destroy my life, health and we'll being. I surround myself with other healthy people and never ever let myself be around anyone who supports eating disorders or unhealthy weightless. It's a challenge every day but I will keep fighting every single day to stay healthy and stay on the right track. I'm doing so good now I may not love my weight but I love my life and the people in it. If you or anyone you know is struggling with an ED get help. Life is worth living. You are worth it. Get help. Know that you are loved. Thanks for reading my story xoxoxo

These eating disorders want to make me cry seeing people hurt themself. People shouldn't hurt themself for any reason. I would never encourage anyone participate in these eating disorders. I encourage others to get help if they have an eating disorder. People that encourage eating disorders are terrible people. People need to stop encouraging others to participate in these eating disorders.

I want to admit here, I ran one of these blogs. I know it was wrong, I wasn't thinking about anyone else who was seeing them, I was 15 and I just scoured the internet for thin girls and wrote things over the pictures like "small thighs feel better than cookies taste" or wtvr, I don't think I regret anything more in my life, because if i made one person feel bad about themselves i honestly think im a terrible person. The thing was i just was caught up in my own head, dealing with anorexia and bulimia and had no one to help me, eventually a boy from my highschool came to me and told me he had anorexia and knowing that he was suffering the same way i was when he was such a good person made me feel less like i was a bad person for having anorexia which eventually made me feel better about myself and i deleted the blog. i still have problems with eating but i dont have anorexia or bulimia just general disordered eating and im actually a childhood psychologist now with an immense understanding of my own past and that part of it is very traumatiizng not only because had the disorder but because of this community and how i was sucked into it and perpetuated the sickness of pro-ana.. im sorry, im doing my best to make up for it now by helping children and teens with eating disorders (edit: the whole thing around six minutes how the blog runners are trying to infect others, im not defending them some might be, but for me, i felt like i was finally part of a community but also one that you had to stay cold to be a part of, like some sort of bitchy girl group, we were trying to help each other be skinny but it also was this thing like, we knew we were gonna die and we didnt care if we did trying to be skinny, it was all in the community to me, i never thoght i could be affecting girls that werent already as fucked up as i felt and acted)

The "everything's cool as long as I'm getting thinner" is a quote from a song called The Fear by Lily Allen. The song is actually about celebrities and trying to achieve some unrealistic standard in order to hold your position of popularity. It's mostly about slowly being overwhelmed by the fear of losing that stupid meaningless status of being thin, beautiful and/or popular. So yeah. Unfitting and hypocritical quote. But I thought it would be good to share

getting comments about how thin i am is actually so triggering (im normal/healthy thin not sickly thin tho) bc i get validation and i hate to say this but i like it, it makes me want to lose more weight. i stay away from this mind set bc i dont wanna get sick. i hate that being thin make us happy, why not be happy at a normal weight :(
Shira Autumn (1 month ago)
The worst for me is; an eating disorder is a kind of an addiction so i could always relapse. That's why thinsperation scares me so much, i don't wannt that to happen. I get really anxious if i hear colleagues of mine talk about how they need to be thinner, i tell them to be careful and listen to what their body wants before they expirience the horror of an eating disorder. There's so many types of ED's too that it scares me to no end. So many people are struggling and yet we never know unless they tell us.
Jessica Nofrey (1 month ago)
I'm currently fighting anorexia after I lost almost 100 pounds. I lost the weight healthfully but became OBSESSED with never being heavy again. I admit I recently started turning to Instagram inspo blogs for motivation, but I need to stop all this while I can. This video really knocked me into reality... I know I need to start WANTING to be healthy.

I had a friend who had this creepy pro-ana fetish, they themselves weren't suffering from Ana/Mia. But they only dated people who did, they admitted to me that they get off to pictures of people with Ana. I swear to god those people are scum of the earth, I can't stand people who encourage this stuff.

Anorexia typically lasts into your early 20’s, but anorexia isn’t the root of the issue and it will creep out in other ways such as drug addictions, sex addictions, or unwanted promiscuous behavior. Just at any point get help. One day you will be comfortable with your body, but not through starving yourself. For those of you that are bulimic: statistics show you tend to become over weight from before your habit of binging and purging. Find a healthier comforting habit, please.
Chyna Murray (1 month ago)
When I was in the worst of my ED my best friend at the time was also on a similar path, and we both encouraged each other to continue. In hind sight that was terrible of both of us, but I can see why people would encourage it. It made it feel normal to me, and to her as well, and so being apart of a proana/mia community made sense to me. I feel terrible about ever encouraging this behavior in other people. I grew up in a performance environment and it was just what we did. We always talked about how little we ate, how little we felt and how feeling light headed made up feel light weight. I will never forgive myself for what I’ve done and I am in no way justifying it, I’m just giving context for those who couldn’t understand how someone could even feel comfortable justifying someone else’s eating disorders. In the environment I grew up in (and for many others) it’s toxic and based solely in feeling small and being around other small people

Ironic. "Everything's cool as long as I'm getting thinner" is a line from a Lily Allen song, (The Fear) and the song actually has the opposite message.

MugglebornGryffindor (1 month ago)
I struggled with an eating disorder for years that started when I was 16. Before I went into treatment for the first time, I came across these pro ana/mia blogs. I want to make it clear that while I was a member of the community, I never once encouraged anyone in their eating disorder. For me, it was a one way street. I never talked to anyone directly or posted much at all. I just went on to these pages and looked for "thinspiration" and guidance in furthering my own destructive behavior. Even when I was in that state of mind, I disagreed with the idea of being pro anorexia or pro bulimia, but I still chose to view this material. It scares me how so many people are sucked in by this. After years of recovery and a few relapses, I think I can fully grasp how horrible these blogs are. Thank you for talking about this. I really wish more level headed people were aware of things like this.

This community and the body positivity community (at least on tumblr) have much more in common than you would think.
I mean feederism
Dead Girl Talking True, but I think feederism is a lot like the pro ana/mia community as well. The point of the feederism community is to encourage each other to eat tons of food and gain tons of weight. It’s a fetish.
Vision Manhunter (2 months ago)
(TW) . . In 6th grade, i thought i was apart of that awful community. I was so miserable with myself that i had burned holes in my stomach and throat from purging. Please don't be apart of that "pro-ana" or "pro-mia" community. (Sorry i am terrible at words and writing in general. I hope it makes some sort of sense)

I have been struggling with anorexia since I was 10 or 11. The worst years of it was when I was actively using Tumblr (14-19) and seeing all those fucking 'thispiration'. I would spend hours looking at black and white pics of girls who looked like Eugenia Cooney wishing I looked like that. The lowest I got was a little under 100lbs (I'm 5'8") so luckily I never got my wish. Looking back I know that my first step to recovery was deleting my tumblr blogs. I'll never go back and I couldn't be happier. I'm healthy now and it feels amazing! This video makes me nauseous because those blogs are still out there, making girls feel bad about themselves. Really sad :/
Jessica Jones (2 months ago)
So glad I deleted tumblr and never looked back. I got stuck into thinsperation when I was 12/13 and it glorified and romanised eatong disorders. Made me really self conscious
ron (2 months ago)
I worry about my friend. Some people see her and would never assume she has a eating disorder. She IS overwieght. But I think she might have bulimia Becuase she has told me multiple times she has spurs where she eats and then basically fasted. I assume this came from a trigger in her brain from when she was younger her mom would restrict food a lot, so she still might be in the same mindset of eating what you can when you can so she isn't hungry later. So at our house she is freely able to get food it still clicks inside her so she ended up gaining a lot of weight. But she is still very nice. And I hope I can help her realize her problem.
Fisch TV (2 months ago)
I think many of them use this posts to reach their goals, to stay motivated. And I kinda can't blame them for that because I understand the mindset they are in... Because if they don't manage to reach their goals they feel horrible... But I know that doesn't excuse it.
Amber Shade (2 months ago)
Recovery, for me, is eating no more and no less than what you’re supposed to eat. If you over eat, then you’ll just end up being on the other unhealthy end.
Spun Hunnie (2 months ago)
For me it was like, how long can I wait between eating and how little can I eat more so then calorie restricting. For that reason exercising allowed me to pack on about 50 lb and I now look womanly but fit. I let my competitiveness at exercise allow me to gain but I had to control the urge to involve numbers too much, including looking at the scale. It's been almost 8 years and I feel really happy with my body, and really happy with my soul. Recovery is possible and it may not be a straight line but it can be a state of mind. Love and prayers to anyone going through this. 💜

When I was anorexic I was OBSESSED with numbers. Count calories and how much I’ve burned off. I’d work off until I passed out. Or almost passed out and if I didn’t want to pass out I’d keep going. And it was horrible!! I was encouraged by people in pro Ana and they would make me FEEL horrible about myself cuz I was NEVER EVER enough
Amanda Szynkowski (2 months ago)
When i was anorexic i used to look at these things when i was hungry
Amanda Szynkowski (2 months ago)
Also, 10% of people diagnosed with anorexia nervosa die because of their disorder. That is 1 in 10 people. I dont believe most of the people posting these things are actually diagnosed, because i used to see a lot of "overweight people can be anorexic too" in nearly EVERY BLOG with their weight attached, when it literally doesnt fit the diagnostic BMI criteria. Theyre creating these posts and hurting sick people because they dont understand how it actually affects people, because they arent actually anorexic. I reached under 90 pounds and could feel my body withering away(over 20lbs heavier today but will probably always be underweight no matter how hard i fight), and if i hadnt stopped i wouldnt be writing this comment. Their encouragement helped contribute to my eating disorder, and i still cant look at it without reverting back to that mindset. Tumblr now makes posts under these tags offering help, so they are at least doing something, not that it will discourage many people

Washiplant (2 months ago)
Honestly, when I was anorexic I used to look at those posts just to make myself feel shittier. Once I acknowledge my problem, I started to unfollow those accounts and I deleted my blog eventually bc they would pop up all the time on my feed. That community is so toxic and i'm just glad I got out of it..

I have a genuine question: *would anorexia be a form of self harm?*
Morii (2 months ago)
Yup-
Milk Duds (2 months ago)
Yes. Anything that intentionally inflicts mental or physical harm, (especially prolonged) to oneself is self harm. Sadly, anorexia does both.
Mfgh uyrtyfui (2 months ago)
Anorexia has the highest mortality rate of ANY mental disorder. Did you know you could die in your sleep because your heart beat slows down so much? Or that people under a certain BMI legally are not allowed to drive because their reflexes become too slow to drive safely? Or if you are too underweight and you take a hot bath, being submerged in hot water can make your heart rate increase so quickly you could have a heart attack? Or that, if you begin to starve yourself, your immune system becomes so weak catching a cold could be a death sentence? Please get help if you are suffering from an eating disorder. I have been there, and I know it's Hell. Fight it with every bit of strength you can muster, your life counts on it. https://www.eatingdisorderhope.com/

Anyway tumblr started me on self harm and i still do it today sometimes!!!

Crystal Boyett (3 months ago)
Back when I was like 14/15 (I'm 22 now) I was going through a period of major depression, probably the worst depression I've ever experienced and I was also starting to develop an eating disorder. I found the pro ana, pro mia, and the self-harm "communities" and I'm ashamed to say that I became an active part of them. Luckily, it didn't take too long (maybe half a year) for me to realize that this was just making me worse, I ended up leaving tumblr for a few years and within that time it somehow became an even more toxic place. I really hope these people come to their senses at some point and get the help they need <3

this community always pisses me off. ive had an eating disorder for almost 3 years and have been hospitalized twice. one of the main reasons my ed started is because i was so naive when i saw this community and got sucked into it. little did i know there was no leaving. i hate these communities so much they are so toxic. these people truly have no idea the effects that an eating disorder can really have on you. it fucked my life up and still is. im currently struggling to pass the 10th grade because i was in the hospital for half the school year. i just wish these communites didnt exist because wow

I got into this community after a traumatic event. It gave me a community to talk to and on top of that I was losing weight. I didn't see the damage until I ended up in the hospital multiple times for psych issues and losing weight was the only thing that made me happy. I forgot that there comes a time when losing too much weight could kill you. I didn't care. Thinspo became my life. This community is honestly just a suicide cult. I still want to lose weight but I don't want to look like the images I admired on Tumblr anymore thankfully. I was honestly very depressed and losing weight gave me this weird high that made me forget my internal pain. I know so many people struggle with this. Just look at the number of times the thinspo images are reblogged. It's very sad.

I’ve had anorexia for 4 years now and I’m guilty as charged of having run thinspo blogs. I was trying to recover so I downloaded tumblr as an attempt to vent about my struggles in recovery but Gould thinspo instead which made me spiral. I completely understand why people start these blogs but it doesn’t make them ok
Leo Hoglund-McGuirk (3 months ago)
There is a really big "malespo" community as well now, its often aimed at young transgender men such as myself. I have struggled with an eating disorder for a little over a year now, and the pro ana/ malespo community has made it so much worse. I really want to break the habit of going on these blogs, but it is sooo addictive. This community really needs to be shut down.

I was never diagnosed with an eating disorder, since I would hide it from my family. However, coming from a Hispanic family, I was used to my relatives talking about how much “bigger” I was than my mom when she was my age. My mother was always below 100 lbs but it was due to the fact that she was living below poverty level and didn’t always eat more than 1 meal a day. Even pregnant with my brother she was 100 lbs or so. Up to this day, my family still comments on being being “fat”. I used to weigh about 100-105 lbs during my very early 20’s and began to gain weight after I began school and got a job as a nurse. I’m around 130 lbs and although I don’t consider myself super big, they do make it seem as if I’m 200 lbs. it’s sad that it comes from relatives sometimes... not so much social media.

I remember I was struggling with body issues a while ago and I hated my body because I am trans I wanted to get rid of my figure and I decided to stop eating meals and I once came across a page like this when I wanted to see if people felt the same about me and the page made me sick and made I realise I shouldn’t be doing this.

I've had the opposite to the ANA and MIA , cause as an genetically thin person I look like i'm at the verge of anorexia , and my family (which is latina) always alienated me as the kid who never ate cause I was skinny and would make me push my food and eat it , i've always hated some parts of my body for being so thin , I makes me disgusted , and I eat a lot trying to gain weight but like it's almost useless as it just goes to my stomach , sorry for the strong language. But I'm starting to plan a rutine to gain weight/muscle in some parts of my body and getting abs .

I don't think I can even watch this video. I've had bulimia since right before high school and I'm a junior now. I lost 60 lbs over the summer before high school. I may have needed to, since I went from 190 to 130, but that isn't healthy. I'd give anything now to not have an eating disorder. There shouldn't be communities that promote eating disorders.

Its an awful feeling knowing someone you love wants your sickness because they dont understand how bad it is no matter how hard you try to explain it to them. Im currently trying to recover but there is always that creeping feeling in the back of my mind that fears being normal again. Its something i never want anyone to go through.

I found a few of these blogs a couple years ago and started thinking it was okay. I used to be like 127 im a small girl so a fast metabolism is normal but I began to stop eating or just eat once a today. If I did eat id sob and freak out and belittle myself for hours until I was sure I wouldn't eat again. I got over it a little bit I still struggle with it. Im somewhere around 100 pounds and im doing a lot better. I hope everyone who has been struggling breaks free and realizes how very beautiful they are.
I don't even have an ED, but I feel depressed looking at those posts. (Cause honestly I'm kinda chubby)

But these people wanna say how society makes them this way. NO THEY DONT! Not being so thin you can’t walk. Hey only promote wait loss if you have a tummy and don’t want it. Like at a “healthy” weight...... Not to be extremely thin or extremely fat. Like it’s fine if you got a belly. It’s just saying for the people that wanna lose that. They make it sound good by saying “better looks”. But all in all just don’t force yourself to do that.

The last time I visited Ana tumblr, I was brought into tears. I just hate this is happening to people, I wish I could take it all away...

I was anorexic for 3 years and have now fully recovered. Looking at these makes me cringe so much and I can't believe anyone would want this for themselves or others

As someone who looks borderline anorexic without being anorexic, I would give ANYTHING for your body. I love the photos of you in a bikini that you posted; I think you’re absolutely stunning. I hate my shape. I wish I had curves and the hips you do. Idk if this helps you with your dysphoria (I heard compliments can sometimes backfire with eating disorders?), as idk how it is to deal with an eating disorder. But I hope this comment makes you feel better about yourself anytime you feel like you’re not good enough. Because you are. You are some people’s goals, in a good way. Remember that. 👌🏻

With the right diet and exercise you can really get yourself some booty. Staying healthy is the most important thing, always.

I do not hate people who have an eating disorder. I hate that people promote eating disorders. It’s like saying cancer is good.

I was recently diagnosed with bulimia and I went to tumblr to vent my feeling. When I saw people actually supporting this I felt disgusted. I can’t even come to terms on why they think this is okay.

When I first heard pro Ana and pro Mia I thought they were people, oh how I was wrong. Pro Ana/Mia is terrible.

Why is it they want to be so thin? It doesn't look attractive, like at all. Especially the twig looking people, I could never date someone like that.

I’ve noticed there’s two sides of the pro ana community: the side that glorifies it, posts thinspo, runs groups of ‘ana buddies’ and is literally pro ana, etc... then there’s the side of people who are just venting their pain, who are pro recovery and use the pro ana tag to reach others struggling, who stay the hell away from ‘ana buddies’, and who post about the more gruesome (and real!) side of EDs. I can understand that for some people, it is therapeutic to just vent, but it’s a fine line.

I dont have an eating disorder but i have had an eating problem since 7th or 8th grade. Kids were picking on my for always bringing subway so i decided not to eat during school because if i brought it i thought theyd talk about it again, and if i didnt i thought theyd talk about how i finally didnt have subway or suddenly couldnt afford it or whatnot. It lead to me eating two "meals" spaced out by man hours. 6am id eating like a hot pocket and by 7-8pm id actually have food. And then after my mom talked to me about it, i started bringing my lunch to school again. But my problems with a lack of eating didnt stop there. I eat very little throughout the day if i end up eating three meals. A lot of the time i usually eat two meals and from time to time ill only eat once throughout the day. For whatever reason i cant bring myself to eat much even when im starving. Sometimes i look at a fridge full of food and convince myself there's nothing for me to eat. Another thing that happens is me feeling too unmotivated to move to actually go try to make myself food or just heat up what i have. Happens much more when i go through a depressive episode and have no motivation in general. Aside from all that, though im not really concerned with my weight and i think this is more of one of those invasive thoughts, sometimes i will wonder if ive lost weight after not really eating, and less than that will check my stomach in the mirror. Crazy how this all started just with some kids picking on my for eating subway.

I honestly have come to the point where recovery seems impossible. It's been almost 4 years. I've gained, I've lost, I've gained, I've lost...and gained again.I am trying so hard to stop it, but I just can't. 800 or less calories a day, exercise, going to classes on foot or by bike, going back home when it's cold or hot af Just to lose those additional 200 calories and then fainting at home, throwing away food my parents gave me, chewing and then spitting food, giving all your food to your friends claiming you are "full"...it's a hell. I am scared. But I am just losing motivation and desire to go back. I guess it will never go away. 6'1'', 60 kilograms right now, but number is going down...

i followed one of this blogs once. or more one of them who reblogged things from there. usually they posted kinda aesthetic things and that's why i followed them in the first place but at last once the week they had some sort of run to just reblogged extremly underweight people and tagging it as goals and stuff like that. and because of that alot of the recommend blogs i got were thinspo blogs. i'm overweight myself and unhappy how i look and i try to lose weight so this blogs hurt me especially when the host of the blog posted own pictures and they had completly heathly bodies and they called themself fat. they made me angry but at the same time sad because i know they are mentally ill and need help. sometimes i found myself scrolling tru that blogs and i need to say that it also had a few who realky posted heathly people and told their follows to eat and take care of themself and posted exercise tips. what i found okay but then it had also this blogs who posted pics of people who resembled skeletons where you aren't sure if this people are still alive right now and post how long thwy haven't ate and what you can consume to not gain weight. i feel so worrying for this people because they need help but choosed to drown in a community of toxic values. ling story short i end up unfollwing this person. we never interact anyway but i felt bad but i needed to think about my own mental health. i hope they're fine. dunno why i wrote this but wanted to share. sorry. it's long.

I know this is a video that’s a year old but as an active and diagnosed bulimic, here’s my take on it(though I’m biased because meanspo is something I actually use). It’s rarely encouraging people to start and more seems like a whacked support group.

I’ve been struggling with different eating disorders for about 5 years and when I was struggling the most I only hated my body and myself. I would never discourage another persons body because I knew how it felt for someone to criticize your body! Wtf is wrong with people.
