anorexia is a choice. it starts off as "wanting to lose a few pounds". ana quickly will take over your life and suck you in, making her your best friend. do not use this site as "thinspiration" and don't post here if youre just looking to lose five pounds. no wanna-be-anorexics please. this is not something you want to be. this is a disease. a mental illness. people die from this. get recovery if you can. but dont force yourself.
