    Today at work, when I put on my working clothes, I looked at myself in the mirror. And I saw that I now have a butt and thighs. My upper body is as skinny as usual with ribcage, spine and no breasts, but obviously I look a little more like a woman now. I've got hips and that must mean that I've put on weight. How did this happen?! I DON'T wanna look like a woman, I wanna be too skinny. It has become a part of my identity I think and now it's slipping away... And I'm quite scared. What if I become bulimic again because of it... Never ending circle? :(

    :hug: i know how hard it is when you put on weight, to realise it's not a bad thing
    trying not to look like a woman, isn't a good thing when it's what your body wants for you
    can i ask how old you are?
    and do you have a therapist you can talk to about this?
    hope you're okay hun :heart: stay strong xx

    :( that's never good... i don't have much advice hun, other than to maybe keep busy - it can keep your mind off of stuff like that which stops you worrying which could, if you do worry, start up your bulimia again :hug: sorry i can't be of much help :heart:
    here for you if you need me xx
