 Being conscious about your body is only ordinary. Watching your weight is even advised, especially if you want to keep a healthy body. However, when wanting to be thin becomes a preoccupation that is taking over your thoughts, your eating habits, your day-to-day functions, and your life, then it might be best to entertain the thought of having an eating disorder. Anorexia (or more formally, anorexia nervosa) is a very complex eating disorder, but it can be characterised as an irrational desire to lose weight. It has 3 key features, including an intense fear of gaining weight, which leads to the refusal to maintain a healthy or ideal body weight, and lastly, a distorted body (and self) image.

Anorexia is a very serious and damaging condition that can be very hard to accept and even recognize by yourself. However, if your thoughts are overcome by dieting, food, becoming fat, and your body that you merely have time for family, friends, and activities you once enjoyed, and if your daily life has become a relentless pursuit of losing weight and getting thin, then it may be time to talk to someone about your struggle. If the thought of anorexia clinics and treatments are too much for you to handle, start by talking to someone you trust and admit that you may have a problem.

Getting help for this image-related condition is not an easy decision, but taking small steps is the best way to beat the disorder:

  • Admitting that you have a problem is always the best first step, because no one can help you do this but yourself. Accepting that your pursuit of thinness is getting out of hand and acknowledging all the emotional and physical damage that this relentless pursuit has brought or is bringing into your life is a good way to start.
  • Talking to someone that you trust and you know will support you while you try to improve your eating habits is also a good way to beat anorexia. It is okay to be afraid to open up to someone about what you are going through, but don't let your fear or being ashamed stop you from taking the step. Know that you don't have to be alone as you try to recover from your eating problem.
  • Stay away from your triggers. These may be places, people, or even activities that fuel your obsession with getting thin. You may need to spend less time with family or friends who constantly talk about diet and losing weight, or avoid looking at fitness and fashion magazines and websites, as well as sites that are pro-ana and promote anorexia.
  • Seek professional help. Turning to anorexia clinics or trained professionals who know and understand eating disorders is the best way to regain your health and self-image, as well as to develop better and healthier attitudes towards your body and food. They will help you learn how to cope with the disorder and control your thoughts so as not to return to a life of unhealthy eating choices.
