So I am at the bottom of the ” acceptable ” weight range for my height, and I love the way I look. I feel very attractive and love that I can wear cute clothes and look great in them. I’m worried that I might be too in love with my body. I’m afraid of gaining more than a few pounds, so I’m careful not to. I have a minimum and a maximum amount of calories I try to eat every day and it is the normal healthy amount. I also like exercising and do so a lot. Where I get nervous is when I have to eat junk food. I will eat it in small amounts, but it’s harder for me to eat a lot of it. For example, I’ll eat a small fries from a restaurant but I probably won’t eat pizza and breadsticks and cookies all in one meal. Is there something wrong with me? My mom has been on a diet and lost fifty pounds, so I have seen a lot of what dieting is like. I also don’t want to look like she did before she lost weight, and sometimes I’m afraid of that happening. I used to be a little chubby when I was 8 or 9, but I slimmed down quickly as a teenager. I don’t want to look the way I did when I was younger. However, I’m always alternating between being afraid of getting huge and being afraid of becoming anorexic. I don’t want to lose weight; I just want to look good and stay in shape like I am now. But I’m scared that my fear of too much junk food is a sign of anorexia.

Wow. I know exactly what you’re feeling right now. I was in this same situation about 2 years ago. I liked the way I looked, but I had a lot of strict eating rules and was incredibly afraid of getting fat. After a friend and I went through a very unpleasant “breakup,” those initial problems became a major issue in my life. Being especially healthy turned into extreme disordered eating behaviors.
