Yes - Complusive Overeating
Yes - Anorexia
Yes - Bulimia
Yes - Selective Eating Disorder
I don't fit into any of those categories, but I've had disordered eating since my teens. At its worst it ranged from eating practically nothing for days, to binge eating a whole days worth of calories in one meal.
I don't consider myself someone with an 'eating disorder', but I know the way I feel about food, and how what I eat and weigh is linked to my self esteem is 'disordered'. I've been trying to ignore my thoughts and do what is best for bubs now that I am pregnant - which I am succeeding in so far - but I still have bad days where I hate how I look and how much I have to eat. I don't know where this puts me on the ED spectrum.
I wish all you ladies luck with what seems to be a daily battle
