I feel disgusting being a normal size, my body has an odd shape and when I'm skinny it evens itself out more. I feel really self-conscious at my normal weight so I want to be thin.

Also I'm really unhappy with my life at the moment but am stuck where I am with no escape in sight - not eating helps me cope better with my situation.

I attribute being thin to being liked, being loved and being ‘perfect’. I idolise this concept of ‘perfect’ in everything. I too see high fashion models as highly desirable because to me they seem ‘perfect’. The whole ‘I can’t eat and I deserve this’ idea is also embedded because I suffer from depression.

I want to be thin because I literally dream of dissappearing or being invisible. I feel that that I am like a sexual object when I am fat, when I have breasts and a bum or whatever. Whatever I do I get confused for a prostitute. Whether I am fat or thin people think I am a prostitute. I get whisteled at, I get screamed at, I get touched, and I get called a prostitute by women. Some time ago society was more traditional and this did not happen hopefully. With the advance of rights for all kinds of none-sense bordering on satanic groups and whatever else in society I am now confused for a punk, a drug addict, a prostitute, an alcoholic, a who knows what. Do not forget these are not even english words! This is just none-sense made up by the minions of the queen of england so that we can be labeled as whatever. Above all else I am like a feminist and I believe in women's rights to have children. ALL WOMEN. I believe in safety, family, religion, for all! But not restrictive religion that punishes. In what age are we in? Punishing? That is like living in the 16th century, that's what it is. Precious Canada recently legalized spanking of children. Perfect! They're geniuses, aren't they?

A lot of reasons.

To be beautiful.
To have control.
To feel lovable.
To feel worth something.
To be able to disappear.

I feel that mine is a rather odd response, I don't know if any of you share with my reasons too?
For me, I do it because I wish to destroy myself. I guess you can relate it back to control, I feel that everything is out of my hands, I don't have a choice or say in anything, therefore i feel that the only thing left, the only thing that i can control, the only thing that i have a say in, is my own self destruction.
I can also relate to wanting to disappear, i want the world to go away. Its also like playing out to what you believe to be true, so for example, i feel so small and inadequate, my behavior and body reflect that also. I feel so empty inside, broken and hurt, I want someone to take me in and 'fix me' but I don't know what it is that i want them to fix :?

I think I can relate to this. I've been so depressed, for so long, and on top of that I cannot control my life (my parents chose what university I attend, which subject I shall major in etc) nor can I control my moods (bi-polar). All I can control is my eating and honestly? it's a way I'm trying to kill myself because at the end of the day me living is the only thing I can control. x

I want to be thin because it makes me feel good about myself. I want to be thin because I like it when I look at myself in a mirror and see that I am losing weight. I want to be thin to feel perfect and pure. I want to be thin because I somehow imagine that it will make someone care about me, even though I know its not true. And I want to be thin because I am really really angry and I want to send the world a big "F-YOU!"

1. To be attractive to my boyfriend. I have a fear that I'm going to lose him to a skinnier girl; also, he's such a skinny little guy naturally, and I didn't want to be the fat one in the relationship!

2. To get those wonderful compliments again...A few years ago, it was "look how skinny and cute you are!" and then, after gaining thirty pounds, it was "you're squishy." Squishy? And that was supposed to be a good thing. -.- No, I want that "you're so skinny" again!

3. To melt into my surroundings. To disappear completely, because I feel I don't deserve to be seen.
