Obese Teenagers Who Lose Weight at Risk for Developing Eating Disorders

Leslie Sim, Ph.D., L.P., a Mayo Clinic psychologist, describes a study finding obese teenagers who lose weight are at risk of developing eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa. Eating disorders among these patients are also not being adequately detected because the weight loss is seen as positive by providers and family members.

  1. People say I’m very skinny and thin…

    But when I look in the mirror…
    I see nothing but an obese/overweight….

    People may say I’m very lucky to have so many people that care….

    What I see are people that are forced to stop me from feeling what i feel because they get payed… not because they want too.. because they have to… make a living for themselves and for their family…

    People say Im lucky I’m happy…

    When all I ever feel inside is emptiness and worrying…

  2. I've lost 80 pounds in 8-9months (Started at 235 and now down to 153). Everyone says I look so good. It feels so good to hear that. People ask me how I do it. I lie and say watching what I eat and exercising. Someone asked me how many calories I ate in a day and that gave me so much anxiety.

  3. I'm 4'3" and 14 years old… I'm January of this year I was 80 pounds now (in june) I am 32 pounds. I weigh less than my 5 year old brother. But people just think I'm normal because I tell them I weigh 60 pounds.

  4. I started 13, after the day my family said I didn't need any soda because I was getting fat so I stop asking them for anything and stopped coming out of my room alot and stopped eating at all they now congratulate me for being skinny it makes me happy ☺ because before they would make jokes about me and now they just think I'm a normal kid.

  5. It’s so weird having anorexia symptoms as a bigger person, you can lose up to 6 pounds a week but because you’re bigger instead of being concerned people congratulate you,

  6. I don't care if I'm super skinny; I'm prouder of being skinny instead of being obese any longer.

  7. i know that this is an awful thing to say, but i hate my body (i’m 5’5” & 160 lb). i lowkey want to become anorexic 😭

  8. Everyone in the comments aren’t commenting very positive things. I’m if anyone here feels like they need any sort of help, or like they’re developing and ED, please GET HELP. I’ve been through it, and trust me. Eating regularly and maintaining a healthy weight is crucial to being happy, and loving yourself. And just know you’re not alone ♥️

  9. You’d think when someone has eating disorders, it would require intervention by “loved ones” for them to realize the situation they’re in. But sometimes most of the times it’s their “loved ones” who require more convincing just to actually care and do something to help.

  10. When someone is obese and they develop an eating disorder it is looked up to but when people my size or average size develop an eating disorder it is frowned upon and they just tell us to eat when it isn’t that simple.
