  • being hungry but not wanting to eat

    I keep feeling really hungry, but really not fancying eating anything. I didnt eat today till about 4pm, and then i had 2 small slices of pizza and couldnt eat anymore - usually id have another slice, and something with it, and maybe a yoghurt after.
    Now im really hungry again and ive had a slice of toast and honey, which I only ate as it was the only thing i could even vaguely feel like eating, but now im still hungry but i just dont fancy ANYTHING. Things just dont taste that great. They taste the same as ever, but im just not getting any pleasure from it, so would rather not bother.
    The other thing is, I keep thinking, hey, I wonder if ill go below 8 stone.
    I do go through bulimic phases sometimes, but its not been that bad lately. I did do it a few times a few weeks ago, but not at the moment.
    This is a bit unusual for me, as ive always thought id make a really shit anorexic because i just love food, but i dont want to force myself to eat, because then i wont be able to see whether i can get under 8 stone.
    Im not sure why im writing this really
    Am i fucked up?

      fine, ive had a hellish 2 months but im actually feeling more positive than ever now. It just feels weird because i really would eat if i could actually think of something i fancied.

        No no no of course your not fucked up, as far as I can tell from your previous posts you are going through an extremely stressful time, this is obviously a repercussion of how stressed you have been. You have a lot to think about at the moment and worrying about things can undoubtly make people not want to eat even though they are hungry. You should surround yourself with as much support as possible. You obviously should try to eat but if this persists you should of course see a doctor as this is not healthy for your system and you won't be recieving all the vitamins to help keep up your strength.

          And it's just today that you've lost your appetite?

            i'm going through a not fancying much food stage too, and sometimes i wonder if i'll get below 8 stone (which is was i roughly am anyway)
            thing is, i think i look abit thinner, but i don't really weigh any less

              but im actually feeling ok now. Ive got a little house that im moving into this week. I feel really excited about moving and being independent. Ive kind of started seeing someone else. I feel like im pretty much over my husband.
              the last 3 days I just havent eaten much. I am still eating a bit, but its fuck all really.

                It's entirely normal to lose your appetite when you have stressful things going on - moving house, the end of a marriage, contemplating a new relationship. Are you worried about it?

                  is it that feeling where you're really hungry but only for something very specific, and you don't have any?

                  if it is would you eat something if it was the thing you want?

                  if you wouldn't, are you using 'don't fancy anything' as an excuse not to eat anything?

                    well I cant actually think of anything i do fancy.
                    I am sort of half worried because I recognise the `oooh maybe i can get below 8 stone` feeling all too well.
                    The lack of appetite is real, but im still feeling hungry.
                    Itd be easier if i wasnt getting pangs.
                    Im probably silly to write this, but its a bit late now.

                      i know that 'wonder if i'll get down to x stone' feeling well. the thing is, if you don't eat properly, then yeah, you probably will get below 8 stone. but what does that prove?

                        i know.
                        I think i am just a bit fucked up. I just cant seem to go without this ED for more than a few months, and the stupid thing is, even when im eating loads, my weight never seems to fluctuate more than a few pounds so im not even sure what its all about.

                              well yes. If youd asked me a week ago, i was still very angry and upset, but now I feel like ive had a lucky escape. I wouldnt go back if he begged me. We`re getting on fine and amicably, buti honestly feel like hes actually been brave to admit it wasnt going anywhere. Hes done me a favour, and the thought that i could have been stuck in the relationship forever is actually quite scary.
                              Ive never felt as free.
