Is it possible to have anorexia if you're not underweight? I'd have to lose (what I think is) a lot of weight to be underweight for my height - 1 1/2 stone (20lb/9kg) and it's just really upsetting that people don't believe I can have anorexia, it's about more than just weight :( JA xxx
Anorexia is more than weight.
Anorexia is a MENTAL disorder. Also keep in mind that not every eating disorder is anorexia. There are plenty of variations that fall in the EDNOS (Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified) category.
In the end it’s never about your weight, it’s about how you feel about yourself and how you look at food.
I know it’s a lot to ask you not to let people’s opinions get to you because it’s harder said than done but in the end, your health is what matters. Focus on yourself and contact a doctor or therapist if you think you’re losing control.
