How long can you be anorexic/bulimic before someone starts to notice or the symptoms become obvious?

I've been feeling gross when I eat and am afraid that following my bad self-image will come an eating disorder. I already have stress issues and get depressed a lot (which can result in minor self harm). I want to be skinny and I know that I'm going down a steady downhill battle against getting there the easiest way I can think of. Not eating, or throwing whatever I ate up when my parents aren't looking.

Sometimes I think that I'll scare myself out of it, but I have already started skipping breakfast and not packing a lunch. I binge at supper time, but I feel really guilty after eating and kinda hate myself for it.

How long would I have to be Bulimic or Anorexic before someone was able to tell something was up?

Ok so the worst way to lose weight is by starving urself...it's not a realistic way of staying thin...ur teeth will rot from the acid in vomit & ur body will store the fat from anything you eat because it prepares for starvation...Sooo, eat ur breakfast..I suggest a protein shake u can make...200 calories...then have sandwich for lunch since you should eat most carbs before 4pm & have a sensible dinner...Seriously, if you're trying to be super skinny skip it--there is nothing sexy about a malnourished looking girl...woman are meant to have curves...you need to look deeper into ureself dear...I promise you starving urself or puking ur food back up is the quickest way to have a problem with ur health...Once you start throwing up ur food, ur body will begin to naturally throw up when u eat alllll the time!! I've seen it happen with my best friend...just get healthy, quit trying to be like some other starving miserable girl and embrace the woman you are and want to be!!!!! Best to you!!! Now go eat :-)

Depends on your body and if it kills you before anything is noticeable. You need medical help :/
