Am I having an anorexia relapse?

in 6th and 7th grade I would never eat breakfast or lunch and eat only half my dinner. I got better in 8th grade but the thoughts of losing weight and starving myself never left. now going into 9th grade I'm lying to my parents about how much I've ate and feel disgusting when I eat. I don't want to relapse, but I want to not eat. Losing the weight is just a bonus, I love feeling myself starve and having the control to say no to food. I know I shouldn't do this I need motivation!

Losing weight is NOT a bonus. That is how you get sick. Yes you are relapsing... You are LYING to people about your food intake.
You have to eat... that is how your body gets fuel to do everything you need to do. Kinda like putting gas in a car.... If you have no gas... You dont go anywhere. You need to get into therapy and you need to regain control. The health problems that you will have later in life will cost you loads of money and lots of personal problems.
Your body NEEDS nutrients.... and nutrients come from food. Please seek professional help and talk to your parents.... Start by telling them that you have been lying. This is a very serious issue. People DIE all the time from Anorexia Nervosa..... and being skinny isnt very attractive anyway.

by not eating you will get sick, and possibly die. you mom, dad, brother, sister, boy/girlfriend, cousins, gran, gramp, and others will cry and cry. you're hurting you're body, whether you realize it or not. watching you hurt, hurts them. you need food. with out it, it could get to the point where walking is a struggle. then you will get sent to a doctor, who may or may not drug you to eat and sleep more, you wont be able to see those who are close to you as often, and you will just be miserable. now, you could choose that path, or you can just eat you three -meals-a-day, and make everyone's(including you) lives better. doesnt that sound better?

Do not worry about your weight too much. I mean its good to try to be healthy but starving yourself is not healthy. Don't compare yourself with others. Why do you wanna be skinny? just because you see other girls. Just be yourself and people will like you for how you are not how you look. Beautiful personality> Beautiful body

Yep , did you have treatment in the past ? This disorder is very serious and you need to understand that it's better to understand why you are feeling this way . What's triggering it ? Maybe a new school year ?
