Eating Disorder?

I don't know what is the matter with me. Well I do I just don't want to admit it's a problem. I obsess about food healthy food. I will not eat anything unless it's healthy. Fruits, veggies, egg whites, nondairy, no bread at all. I live on protein shakes since I hardly eat meat once a week. I eat only white fish. Because I am scared of gaining weight. Lately all I've been eating is protien shakes and not anything else. I am so scared of gaining weight. I want to lose weight at least 23 pounds. I weigh myself everyday and measure all my food out when I do eat. Which is really small amounts. I walk a mile a day everyday whether it's raining or snowing. I know I don't get enough nutrition. And I know I need help. I know this isn't normal behavior to be completely obsessed over every aspect of what you eat. I am also obsessed over my body image I really can't stand to see myself in the mirror and think to myself "your fat you need to lose more weight". I just need help in eating healthy without fear and get my OCD about my weight loss under control. But where should I go? What should I do? Get help? Or resolve it on my own?

Hi godless_sun,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  It's great you are trying to stay healthy, by exercising and eating healthy food. But being obsessed and worried about losing weight all the time, can also not be good or healthy.  It can lead to eating disorders like Anorexia Nervosa. If you feel this is causing a problem, you might want to try for yourself to control your obsession with losing weight and just take it one day a time.  Losing weight cannot happen overnight. Continue exercising and eating healthy meals. If not, you will need to speak to a doctor about this and get counseling from a psychotherapist and/or a nutritionist.

Here are some resources for you
