Horrors of Anorexia

Anorexia is an eating disorder where people starve themselves. Anorexia usually begins in young people around the onset of puberty. Individuals suffering from anorexia have extreme weight loss. Weight loss is usually 15% below the person's normal body weight. People suffering from anorexia are very skinny but are convinced that they are overweight. Weight loss is obtained by many ways. Some of the common techniques used are excessive exercise, intake of laxatives and not eating.

Anorexics have an intense fear of becoming fat. Their dieting habits develop from this fear. Anorexia mainly affects adolescent girls.

People with anorexia continue to think they are overweight even after they become extremely thin, are very ill or near death. Often they will develop strange eating habits such as refusing to eat in front of other people. Sometimes the individuals will prepare big meals for others while refusing to eat any of it.

so uh, pixi isn't anorexic and maybe you should find out if people are before you plaster their pictures all over a website like this

Some of these girls are not actually anorexics. You should really use better judgment then to just collect a much of images off the net without proof of their disease. That pretty offensive to the few on here that do not suffer from an eating disorder.

I agree - some of these people(kids) are not anorexic, but for those that are... it so sad... that to some people it has come to the point where you have to be skin and bones to be pretty? What ever happened to help building your childs' self esteem rather than watch them perish away to nothing and look like a walking skeleton :(

When I was told about this blog, I heard "Whores of Anorexia". I was a bit disappointed to see it was "Horrors" instead.

/sarcasm off

Anorexic or not, they all need to be taken to McDonald's on a daily basis until they gain at least 50 pounds.

The bottom line is, this can't be healthy.

But what disturbed me the most were the few images of models here. To be honest, they looked fine to me... which I guess proves that I also have a distorted image of beauty, as if it's okay to be super skinny if you're modeling and done-up.

its obvious people that the three girls arent anorexic.....but i think the reason the pic was posted was that they all had huge smiles on there faces like they were proud to look that thin....and i would say in a few years they may just look like that without having to suck it in

i thought i was becoming anorexic, but after seeing these pictures, i'm definetly going to start eating more. my friends will definitly be happy. now i know thin doesn't = beautiful.

They often believe that their behaviors are secret and no one notices or cares enough to pay attention. The idea that middle-aged women are having this problem is troubling to physicians as they work hard to try and prevent the disorder in young women. However, doctors can't be sure if the middle aged women that are receiving treatment are new to the disorder.

Whats even more sad, is that some of us fat girls would give our left tit to be this thin; at least that way, we'd be considered "humans" among most people. As society stands today, those of us who are over weight are less than human and it's socially acceptable to humiliate, poke fun at, and generally scorn us.

Lornaah said...

Um.. the picture of the three young girls? Pretty sure they're sucking it in. You should get your facts right before posting. -.-

you people are all ignorant and obviously know very little about this disease.
and yes, some of those girls are not sick, and whoever stole these pictures has no fucking conscience. these girls are human beings!!! and ones who are suffering at that.
most eating disorders have so much more to do with wanting to be thin. sometimes they have nothing to do with it. most of you have not experienced this diease firsthand. so for you dumb fucks to get on here and comment with the typical "take them to mcdonals, eat a cheeseburger, lets rant to the world about how gross and stupid these girls are!" is simply disgusting and wrong.

Anonymous said...

It is clear that some of the girls are not anorexic but I don't think that is the focus of the blog. It just goes to show that people think it is healthy and normal to be this thin when clearly it isn't. The average size female in the UK is a size 12 and this is increasing to a size 14 which is a healthy normal look. I don't think the media helps out with the insecurity some females, and males have with their bodies. For instance, some of these images look like models and cat walk models today are made to look solemn and thin and I personally don't feel that is a good representation to be giving to people. I think there is too much emphasis on the body image and body size and I personally think people should be able to feel they can sit and eat a big mac without feeling guilty. It is shame because a look of the girls in the images are pretty, but their weight and size makes them appear, for me, unattractive. I just hope people see the light before it is too late and realise that being thin does not always mean being beautiful.

Anorexia is not the way, all celebraty's lead a healthy diet. Anorexia diets only make you look un healthy you will get dark patches under your eyes spots and dry skin all because of lack of vitamins. If you want to look good think about eating breakfast, lunch and a good size dinner plenty of vegitables fruit and meat. Milk will make your hair and skin and bones healthy. And you will look amazing with in weeks of eating healthily. Snacking is also very good for a balanced diet maybe and apple or some sort of fruit or maybe even a packet of crisps between meals. I am gonna break the anorexia truth. It makes you look like crap skin will look dry and not healthy and viberant, hair will look like straw. The way to look like a barbie is not to die your hair because it will wreck it keep with you natural coulor. Don't wear exsesive make up only were, a light touching natural NOT ORANGE foundation eye liner and mascara. Please Anorexia is not big or clever if you are anorexic for too long then you phisically starve your body and your body will start digesting itself i have seen pictures of sufferes from anorexia and they do not look good they look terrible and not anything like a barbie doll or any celeb you will ever see. So seriously if you wanna look good eat healthy and stop this crazy obsession now!!!

Anyone that says these that these pictures are ok and some of these girls are just skinny,(with the exception of the 3 little girls), needs to have their head examined and be sure that they are not anorexic yourself. These girls are sick and are slowly killing themselves. Sorry hon, Pixie, whoever she is looks sick.

some of these comments are so stupid. if you dont have anorexia dont judge, you dont know what its like, telling an anorexic to eat is just ignorent they have a MENTAL ILLNESS they DONT chose it, anorexia choses them. there are now 3 main types anorexia wannanorexics WANT to be anorexic but they never can be, pro anorexia where they thin thin is beautiful and perfect and they strive for perfection and there is the main type anorexia where the person doesn't eat for control and emotional reasons some dont even want to be thin they just cant eat. I know this because im anorexic im 16 and have anorexia for 6 years im anorexic and i would love to have a life without anorexia but i cant, those who dont have the illness will never understand it.

i think that anorexia isnt judged neceesarilly by the size of some1 but by the disease that effects them. so those comments sayn that some arent they r wrong those girls are sufferers of this horrible dibilitating disease so dont be so judgmental to say these girls r 2 fat they arent n people like u posting those kind of comments r the reason why they dont get better. So keep ur negativity to urself it is a hard enuf disease to deal with without dipshits like you making people feel worse about themselves!!!!!

Anonymous said...

those people who have said some of those girls arent anorexic need their heads read. As anorexia is not judged by the size they are but by the disease. The size of some of those girls are yes yuk but when some idiot puts a comment saying that one and this one arent small enough, this is whqat makes them get smaller. And that is the sadest part so I think you should keep those kind of comments to yourself as these make those girls get sicker. And to the girls in these pics I hope that one day u get better before it is to late, it is possible, but you have to overcome your self view before you can so be strong enough to do so. And I hope to see photos of you oneday when you have recovered from this horrible debilitating disease. GOOD LUCK.

Many of these photos have been photoshopped to make the women look thinner.

I must say that all of the women in this blog aside from the 3 young girls are unhealthily thin. Having suffered anorexia first-hand I can say that this disease is far more complicated and complex than any non-sufferers can even fathom. I myself don't even completely understand the reasons and drives behind my obsessions in this disorder. I wish getting better was as easy as going to fucking McDonald's but it's not. It takes A LOT of hard work trying to reprogram years of distorted thinking and destructive habits as well as figuring out who you are and learning to love and respect yourself. For many of us this has never been an issue so thinking rationally and a sense of self is taken for granted. For others it is a daunting struggle. I would not wish this disorder on my worst enemy! So if you know anyone in your life that has this problem please don't tell them to "just eat". In their state of mind they'll problably tell you to fuck off. Frustrating as it is try not to tell them how to get better- they're sick and preoccupied and will just go on the defensive. It's best to be supportive of them seeking the help of a professional.

You know what is truly sick? It's that girls with eating disorders look up to these girls as their "thinspiration". I used to, when I had an eating disorder. Now I am recovered. Thank you for this post.

Anorexia is NOT fun -as the girls in the photo's seem to show! It's a serious life-threatening disease & not some vanity fair for "so-called" annies!!

There is an overwhelming ignorance of anorexia which has no universal cause and is not a disorder. Human nature exists in a state of spiritual darkness until the Lord turns the lights on when He sees a seeker of truth, and with the lights turned on increasingly by obedience to his divine Word; those who are driven to starve themselves for whatever reasons can discover their innermost hidden motives and control them instead of being controlled by them. Life is hid dot com has more for those who are interested.

A lot of misinformation from posters.

Regardless of the source, the photographs are meant to scare us, and meant to illustrate this growing problem.

Girls - it's prettier to have some curves instead of looking like an underweight teenage boy.

There is a serious need for some therapy for girls going through any image crisis. It's about learning to be happy with yourself in your own body.

Anonymous said...

Dont judge, they honestly see themselves differently. When you havn't eaten for a long time your body starts to shut down. The blood flow focuses on the most important organs, leaving others without which makes me impossible to think straight. Thats where the voice comes from telling you horrible things. IT IS a psychological disease and it is horrible to see that people just think it's a lifestyle choice. It's also a way of dealing with feelings for some. Like others use drugs, drink, smoking etc. I've been through some strange stuff through my life, even living with a corpse! But nothing compares to this disease. Leave these girls alone, you will never understand unless you experience it yourself.

yeah, we're fucking attention seekers. it is really sad how much eating disorders are overlooked. they are MENTAL ILLNESSES. anorexia is not about trying to look skinny. it is a way that we learned how to cope with things in our lives, and it is extremely unhealthy but it is not a fucking choice so that we can get attention . that's so fucked up. people with eating disorders are just like people in other addictions. somewhere along the lines we picked up these bad habits that we think are helping us. and its incredibly, incredibly painful to go through. so read up on it before you fucking post shit that you don't really understand.

My clinic ruined my life after my eating disorder.. I was peachy until they came along and took everything I had worked years and years for. I didn't want to get any thinner, I liked how i looked, I just couldn't figure out how to stop. And then they hospitalized me and made me fat, but everyone else was ten times happier than I was because I was "normal".
My heart goes out to these girls... They need to be helped by other sufferers or the past afflicted, not the pig therapists who made my life Hell.

anonymous said...

This is so sad. These girls need to eat something healthy like fruit, protein, or vegitables.But not McDonald's-that stuff is bad for you.
But really, you shouldn't be making snap judgements on people you don't know. I eat a mostly organic diet- meat, veggies, fruit, bread, organic whole milk- and moderately exercise, and I'm a size 2-3. I'm about 5ft 4&1/2. It's sad that Americans are so unhealthy that people think I have an eating disorder.
I also have a friend who is 5'll and who is about the same size clothing-wise as me, but I know for a fact that she is not anorexic. It's just in her genes. So don't go making snap judgements about people you don't know.

yes you can visually tell that some of those girls are just that skinny naturally or sucking in hardcore.
but this is no laughing matter and proof is needed before u post pictures. to this day I still think I am hidious but I am watched closely by my family and friends to make sure i eat because i still believe eating is a waste of time. I have lost many people in my life cause they just cant stand to watch me struggle but I am working on it my weight still goes up and down ten pounds or so every month

but confirm ur sorces before posting pictures ANd I damn well hope u get concent from the people u may be humiliating by posting these pics.

This disease is a horrible epidemic effecting many people of all ages. An important thing to remember is you can't help someone who isn't willing to help themselves. It's a very sensitive subject to approach someone with--My friend suffered from Anorexia and the best thing I could do was support her. Until she realized the problem for herself, she couldn't start the healing process. She's at a healthy weight now, but I know it's a battle for her everyday and I'm there for her. Although the three young girls are sucking in, I think the horrific message of all these photos is the distorted view on body image. For any pictures that aren't approved(especially those underage!), it would be in the best interest for the blogger to remove them--especially if already asked to. On the other hand, this is also a lesson to be careful what you post on the internet.

Anonymous said...

One of these photos is my sister looking, actually, better than she did the last two years of her life. She's been dead for almost a year and a half, and to get technical, she was bulimic. I would like to give praise for the "Horrors of Anorexia" title, though I find it unfortunate that you have over 30 pictures & your actual blog is "Damn Cool Pics" There's not a damn cool thing about eating disorders, nor is there a damn cool thing about posting a bunch of [potentially] anorectic's photos on a public domain, nor is there a damn cool thing about the fact that one of these girls is my DEAD SISTER.
On another note, I was trying to find news articles on eating disorders since I am a member of a nonprofit recovery foundation, and this came up in the results when I was searching treatments. Again, that is far from damn cool.

I'm extremely repulsed by your lack of sensitivity.

A LOT OF THESE PEOPLE AREN'T ANOREXIC.

Not all of these girls look sick, that is true. But the insiduous thing about eating disorders is that when you look sick it's almost too late. I have suffered from Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified (EDNOS) for years. This just means I've never been sick enought. I weighed 110lbs and stand 5ft 8, but because i still mestrated I wasn't sick. I still suffer as an adult in my 30's, I will practice anorexic behaviours but can keep a normal weight. I am sick, but not enough. I am harming my body by restricting food.

every extreme is bad... people aren't happy with themselves. We have to stop paying attention to what other want us to be. We should accept us as we are. When I marry about 15 years I was 114 pounds. my sister in law (she is always critizing others weight) told me that I was really fat.. I look at myself now (2 children and some mooore extra pounds) what the hell I am... but I look at her (she doesnt enjoy life trying to be thin) and I just say to myself F...k U . I am happy with myself, my husband and my children love me and thas is the most important.. than looking like a low self-esteem woman

I hate the way society says we should look this way. And the idiot that said these girls look hot? It's your fault girls end up with anorexia. Because these girls aren't hot, they're sick. They're unhealthy and their bodies are slowly shutting down. So if you find them 'hot' then maybe you'll find them even hotter when they are just a skeleton, without the skin. Because you might not have to wait long.
Curves are hot. So shut up you idiot.

It's NOT about what we see in the mirror. It's about what we see in our minds eye when we are visualizing ourselves. I may be 95 pounds, but I still see the 190 pound chic in my mind when I think of myself. Weight has been used against me my whole life.When it first started I would think things like'The guy I was into was into my friend, it must be because she was skinnier." Everywhere I went there was someone smaller, more beautiful, even though I was technically one of the most stunning people walking the planet, it was simply not enough because I was not THE most stunning. I wanted to wear clothes that were clothes, not clothes that made me look skinny. And at a certain point, something takes over...and even though I caught sideways glimpses of myself in the mirror and was shocked at the bones jutting out, when I got away from a mirror I still felt like the chubby girl. And this something in me wouldnt allow me to eat even when I desperately wanted to. It was as if that one piece of bread would make me 500 pounds by morning. And even if it wouldnt physically do so, I FELT 500 pounds by morning. If I am super skinny, beautiful,smart as hell, but not quite "perfect" what will I blame all my life's falings on?? WHY did that guy pick my friend, or those guys eyeball some other chic when she walks into the room when I was standing right there??? What will be my scapegoat???
Do you understand yet?? I'm NOT saying that I agree with this. I am NOT saying that I don't see the logical falacies. I absolutely do, which is why I am now 113 pounds and not 79. But this is far more insidiuos than "OMG, just EAT already!" And the women who are big who want this, let me tell you this. Being skinny is nice. It helps things along. As in, "well shits hitting the fan, but at least Im skinny right?" But no one gives you shit for being skinny. YOu dont get fame and riches for being skinny. All your lifes problems ARE NOT there because you are not skinny, and they WILL NOT go away when you are skinny. And even if they do, you wont ever be able to enjoy it, you wont ever be able to allow yourself to believe that you are finally "skinny" because if you get this disease you will never be skinny enough, at least not to yourself. You will develop the absolute cognitive inability to see yourself and to know yourself as skinny. Also...do you want a voice in your head that is. not. your. own. voice??? Seriously, it's so it's own thing you would swear you're possessed. It's creepy and scary, and will scare the living shit out of you guaranteed. But by then you will be too weak to silence it, to weak to fight it on your own, too weak to not listen to what it says simply because it's far less scary to convince yourself that the voice is your own, then to realize that this still small voice is a result of psychosis brought on your inability to sleep (too hungry) and your inability to force yourself to eat. This is why they call it "ana" or "mia" Because at a certain point the symptoms of psychosis brought on by this obsession becomes an entity with a different voice residing in your head. Do you REALLY want that??? Really?? This is not some kind of romantic disease that "only pretty sad little girls" are afllicted with. If you walk this road, this disease is no respecter of persons, it will convince you to not eat while it eats you alive. And it WILL show up. Guaranteed.
So quit running your mouths on something you dont know anything about. And don't comment on something you really don't give two craps about.This shit hurts. And in most of these photos these women have absolutely lost all control over this. They are being victimized by something that is far too big for them to eradicate on their own. They need help. But mostly they need to ASK for help. And they need to keep asking until they get the right kind of help. BEFORE they've met there most recent goal, because gaging by most of these shots, the next stops death.

shut the hell up about giving girls burgers from macdonalds. they're worse than starving yourself.

oh yeah and these girls worked very hard to get their bodies like this and just because some are not on the verge of the death does not mean they aren't anorexic.

jeez oh and honestly i want my anorexic body back because being a healthy size 12" is bullshit and i look and feel like a fat pig. this country (and america) has an obese population because everyone is worried about anorexia but you can die from being FAT idiots.

Being thin is not bad and those who say oh these girls are sick, yes probably most of them are but honestly who wouldn't want to be able to buy any clothes they like and know they will fit and look good on?? it feels fucking fabulous

Seriously if they were that body conscious, they wouldn't put pictures online to show off what their body looks like!

I just come across this sight, and its really upset me. It's offensive, for a start. And some of the girls here are not anorexic, another thing is that you can't just post pictures of people without asking first. How would you like it if one day you found a picture of yourself hardly dressed on the internet on some sight that must be viewed everyday by complete strangers? Anorexia is not something to be taken lightly, and I fu**ing hate fakers! I hate the fact that there are wannabe's all over the world going "Oh, I hate my life so much I'm so fat, maybe I should stop eating"... And I know that this is off topic, but another thing I hate is when people self harm and let the whole world know.. If they really were that depressed, they would not let the people around them know about the stuff they do. Back to anorexia, I can't believe that people even post pictures of themselves in this state.. And some people do, like they think its so amazing. Well their wrong! It's not amazing! It's one of the hardest things a person could go through and here are all those attention seeking maggots trying to be something their not.. Anorexia is not something you choose, it happens to you. And its not as simple as people seem to think it is. It's horrible. So, if there is anyone here on this sight, reading this who wants to be anorexic.. Don't attempt it, you will thank me one day if you follow my advice. You'll thank everyone who gave you the same advice. And you'll regret ignoring what we've written down. It's so upsetting to see people in this state. It really is. It beaks the hearts of everyone that cares about you and you don't even realise it because you're so self absorbed. =(

As someone who's recovered from anorexia, and been at the same stage as the people in the pictures. I think its awful, when i was that small in my own eyes i was still 'too fat' Now i can look at the photos and think that they all look ugly, and WAY TOO THIN. theres a difference between being toned, and looking good. To just looking like skeletons
Usch. A life without anorexia is so much better then being stick thin and depressed.

Hopefully people can look at this and think the girls look ugly, and nothing to aim for.

I suffered from an eating disorder and some of these comments should be taken seriously. If these girls see comments posted about their body, they will not feel better at all. They will most likely get sicker. What's very important to understand is that this is a pyschriatric disorder and some one suffering from it can't just "go eat". However I hope these girls get help soon!

I think they look great and I hope to b as skinny as them soon, I'm already anorexic but in not quite as skinny as them I'm 5'2 and weigh 95 pounds I use to weigh 130. My weight goal is 80-85. I don't regret starving myself EVER. I am proud to be pro- Ana, never give up on what you want to accomplish. I will be 16 soon in February.

Um I have anorexia and taking me to McDonald on a daily basis and making me gain 50 pounds won't fix me. Making me gain weight won't help me get better, being supportive and and being helpful is how, telling someone, letting me or whoever talk about it.
Please think before you post something like this..
It is really hurtful to me because honestly I wish I could just eat food and get over it.. But sadly there is more to it.

Kylie Knudsen said...

It is not his fault that girls are anorexic. Nor is it the medias. You obviously no nothing about anorexia. Anorexia is a disease, a disease can not be given to someone because of their words or what they think is beautiful. Anorexia actually is in your DNA, its like alcoholics, because of past generations, you might be more susceptible than someone that doesn't have past generations with that disease. I'm not saying that people or the media doesn't have an effect on these people, because it does, it just isn't the cause. So please get your facts straight before you get angry about something you no nothing about.

u cant simply "stop" anorexia. also anorexia doesnt only occur because a person is obsessed with being thin because they think it's ideal. that's ridiculous. it may be a typical reason that starts someone who is prone to the disease to actually become anorexic when hey spiral out of control. why would someone in their right mind literally willingly starve themselves to death just cuz they think thin is the only way to look? that would be an awful and slow torturous way to live and ultimately die. sit and think about it. 1 doesnt chose this. alot of people can stop eating until they lose wt, get to where they want to be then resume with semi normal eating habits without body image issues. not saying its healthy but my point is that u cant hust become anorexic. it's something that the person who is afflicted with has an extremely at times impossible time controlling their behaviors. also the word means no appetite. and so a person can stop eating and have this disease because they simply literally have no appetite. this is just like people who cant control their drinking or drug habbits. an anorexic girl who ate 3 grapes ant 2 teaspoons of yogurt 2 days ago and still feels guilty for it and a heroin addict who will do anything for thheeir next fix and has lost everything and everyone have a lot in common. they cannot control their behaviors nor their thought process. these people suffer more then u will ever know. thats why they classify these afflictions as diseases..... c'mon most ppl know this stuff i thought. btw not cool posting these pics without atleast blurring out faces. thats exploitation. how wld u feel if this was ur sister or best friend or dtr or cousin, whatever????????
