ignore her. you're amazing for completing that hard goal and congrats! keep it up!
Tell them about her having an over-eating disorder. Works the same way.
Actually, that's where my mind went to first, as well. I guess it just depends on whether you're a pessimist or optimist. A person who really is anorexic may think that the people telling her so are just jealous. Furthermore, admittedly, I haven't personally known very many people who struggled with anorexia, but, logically, I would think that if she's skinny enough for people to believe she's anorexic, she doesn't need to be losing 10lbs, lending credence to the pessimistic point of view. Sorry for writing a book of a comment. lol
10 pounds, bro. That's not anorexic unless she did it by starving herself and her current weight is 85 pounds. Also, if she was anorexic she wouldn't be like "yay, my goal!" She'd say, "I still look disgusting and fat" and would continue trying to lose weight in an unhealthy manner. Think.
A good friend of mine is recovering from anorexia, you wouldn't tell people that you lost 10 pounds because you'd be thinking to yourself, "I need to lose more" People have called me anorexic before, because when I'm working on important projects I forget to eat, and I always lose weight when I'm stressed. Not every skinny person is anorexic. Btw, InASortOf and UbertwatchBN, I'm not angry with you, as maybe it seems from my tone. I'm just sharing my experience.
I have personally suffered from anorexia before and have recovered. In the BEGINNING stages, I would announce weight loss and be proud that i was getting closer to my goal, which was 90 pounds, until I realized people stared to worry. Then it's bottled inside along with the feelings. It is possible she's in the beginning stages and her sister us trying to help her before it gets worse. But, it's also possible she did this healthily and her sister is jealous. We don't know everything.
The early stages of anorexia can be just like normal dieting. OP didn't say she announced her weight loss or that she was done losing weight. She may have developed a problem without realising it. Her sister may have noticed her odd eating habits and become concerned. Saying the sister is jealous would be a pretty standard response from someone who is anorexic. Also consider the possibility that OP's family would have to be concerned about OP to hold an intervention, if she NEEDED to lose 10 pounds or more they would probably be happy for her not worried. On the other hand, the sister may have a problem! Turning the attention on someone else and their weight loss to deflect attention their own is pretty classic for an eating disorder. OR the sister is just a bitch..
28. seriously. "treat others how you want to be treated" well obviously that's how ops sister wants to be treated. so I say the next time your sister accomplishes something tell a lie to make it seem like she's either doing something illegal, or that she's a whore. or even harmful. like if she lost weight. or gained weight really fast.
68- it is two wrongs. It's two lies, lying is wrong. OP just has to prove she isn't anorexic and her sister will be dealt with by the family for lying, OP lying will only hinder her chances of proving she isn't anorexic cos her parents won't believe a word she says.
for holy shit's sake, Tess. this is a website full of people saying things to entertain one another. I doubt that in the history of this website anyone has taken a single piece of advice from these comments and used it. everyone here knows it's not serious most of the time so you need to lighten up or go find a forum where everyone is uptight and bitchy as you are.
Wow, 100. I'm just laughing so hard at your reply because I'm not sure if I'm supposed to take it seriously.. you know, coming from someone with a picture as ridiculous as yours. How come a 13/14 year old boy has to take a picture with his shirt up and pointing to his nipple? How can anyone take that seriously? I realize that the internet is full of idiots (obviously) but I love reading this website and have probably been on here for longer than you have. And who are you to tell me what website to go on? Mind your own shit and get a life.
So who does "treat others how you want to be treated" actually apply to? You imply that it doesn't apply to everyone since OP's sister was a bitch. By the "treat others..." rule, OP treated was a bitch to her sister, therefore she wants/deserves to be treated the same way. So pick a side. It's either treat others how you want to be treated which is an open door for teaching people lessons when they act like bitches, or ignore their behavior altogether because "two wrongs don't make a right". It's one or the other.
Hey Tess, welcome to FML. This is a magical place where small children are called bitches, girls are advised to dump and/or kick the balls of their boyfriends for farting at the wrong moment, parents steal money from children, men are encouraged to beat their pregnant wives for not making them sammiches, and other sundry horrible things go on. You know what I do? I sit back and laugh, and occasionally insert a smart-ass remark. You might try it.
