Post An apology for something I did in this forum.

Hey I'm the girl who wanted to be 97lbs. This is the forum where I caused stuff. I'm sorry for fighting with you all. I looked at a picture of me when I was 120 and honestly I looked good. I guess I did not notice because last time I was anorexic. So I raised my goal weight to 120. And just wanted to say you were right. I was wrong. I have issues so I hope you can forgive me. <3

I would take it a step further and hopefully you're open enough to understand what I'm telling you.

Most models that you want to look like do not actually look the way you think. Photoshop is one thing but even professional fitness models who are not photshopped prep for a 1 day shoot for weeks or sometimes months. They manipulate their water balance for this one day event as well. Beyond that, fitness and nutrition are their obsessions. I'm not knocking this - each to their own as far as I'm concerned. The point is that "normal" people don't look like that. I am sure that there are exceptions to this as genetics have a wide range of variance.

Just something to think about. You probably already knew this but it's good to occasionally remind yourself.
"Getting solid information is easier than ever. Getting misinformation is even easier." - Kaplods

Maintaining for two years and I eat whatever I want - just not however much I want. Details here.

I am very happy that you see why we were all so concerned and against a goal of 97 pounds. Hopefully you can reach a healthy weight that is best for your body.

I also agree with John that magazines, billboards, advertisements, they're all misleading. I touch up my photographs in Photoshop merely to fix slight imperfects such as lighting, dust, minor blemishes, etc. It's very easy to go "overboard". You can YouTube how photoshopping is done for magazines and it's ridiculous.

Not to say those women aren't beautiful but magazine spreads are not true representations of what they look like.

Best of luck to you and your health.

I couldn't help but notice your screen name and relate it to these two posts. I don't know you or your situation and only want to help with positive intentions. Is it possible that you suffer from depression during your "down" cycle and during that time, extreme weight loss seems to be the answer to your extreme-feeling down cycle? And when you are moving towards the "up" cycle, you feel better and therefore have less of an attraction to your extreme weight loss goals as the problem seems somehow "solved" when you feel better? If you have untreated bipolar disorder, find help for that and I bet it will help you in a lot of ways. I am guessing that your eating is inconsistent in line with your mood changes - extreme restriction during depression and very liberal intake during happy times. That inconsistency might be causing you to be unhappy with your weight. If you can receive treatment for your bipolar disorder and find a way to eat more consistently, I think it will swing backwards and help your mood changes also because (I am still guessing) that when you are in your "down" cycle, you regret the liberal food intake from when you were "up." As with everything else, food is itself not a problem and changing food is not the answer. There's an underlying problem that you need to address in therapy that will come out and roar as you work through it and separate the feeling that this issue causes from food. We label "anxious, insecure, sad, rejected, depressed" as "fat." It's an easier label to deal with because it has a solution - diet. Dig deeper and get help.

And post here as often as you want! Check out the Depression and Weight Issues forum. You will find a lot of support there, also.

There's no ticker here because I have no idea what I weigh, nor do I have plans to get on the scale anytime soon. My goals are to take care of myself in healthy ways and let the scale fall wherever it will. "It's not about skinny anymore - it's about healthy."
