Didn't eat anything till 11:30 am today (other than drinking coffee). I was starving, of course. I didn't skip eating on purpose - just got caught by work stuff. But I found myself feeling a little proud nonetheless, and relieved because the scale is bound to go down after this. And sometimes, I do "forget on purpose" - I'll literally be too lazy to get up, get my food, and heat it. Or I'll test myself by seeing how long I can go without eating.
These are not healthy thought patterns. If left unchecked, they add up to a potential eating disorder.
So why do I do it?
