    ..an eating disorder?

    Since we've moved (my mom, brother, and I), we've been on a tight budget. My mom spends a lot of money on groceries. 100$ or more a week.

    I feel like I'm only wasting money by eating, so I eat minimal amounts of food a day. Today, in the 9 hours I've been awake, I've eaten a few cookies, small waffles, and a few pizza rolls. (Not enough to fill me up). Even if I'm still hungry, I don't eat because I don't want to make my mom spend more money.

    I can feel my ribs through my shirt with ease now.

    I don't think that would be classified as an eating disorder because you are not doing it because you dislike your body image. It's very unhealthy to eat that little, you should eat healthy filling cheap foods instead of junk if your trying to stick to a budget. How are you now? :hug:
