about the bmi question
thanx for the replies.Cyberdoc,you said that if i feel fat i MIGHT be anorexic,the thing is i KNOW im NOT fat,but i feel like losing more weight isnt gonna do anything.i dont binge and purge,but i am scared of being fat and i only eat food that I consider safe,which is not much.i eat something like a fruit every 3 hours,but i have a decent breakfast(all bran flakes,fat free milk,an orange),then i have a very small lunch and supper.i dont believe in psychologists,and i dont want to see a dr cos i am scared of what he'll say.but do i need to see a shrink?!

Confused, you sound OK from this side of the screen, but I don’t know you well enough to give you a definite answer. What I can tell you is that you’re underweight and that losing more weight is going to lead to serious problems. If you feel that losing more weight is OK, you have a problem – full stop. You can also drop CyberShrink a line and get his take on this. Good luck.
