Most POF members will not run into those folks unless living in Miami, NYC, Boston, but it does put things in perspective(dreams of a whopper as I type lol) As a slender woman I stick out like a sore thumb in America. Men's Health magazine publishes a yearly roundup of all the worst foods in America, and it floors me the kind of things people are able to buy that is just really high in calories, sodium and fats.
I am not a slim jim myself, but I prefer skinny women, so long as they aren't anorexic anyway.
Though eating disorders are more frequently reported in women than in men, they occur among both genders.
The most commonly seen are anorexia (starvation) and bulimia (binge eating and purging food).
When this woman is around, people can talk about the ill effects of putting your body through the ravages of over-exercising and starvation, then invite her to join the conversation to offer her opinion.
I was anorexic from Oct 1997 till 2000, I went from 9 stone to 7 stone 2.
You may want to consider a support group for yourself, too.They only need to be of an opinion that what she is doing is bad for her and they can act.The problem you have with eating disorders, is unless the person who has the illness admits they have one, there really isn't much that can be done except hospital admission where they will be fed intravenously and sent to counciling, i can see why you are concerned, but there is not a lot the gym can do unfortunatly, in saying that if there is vomit, she could suffer from both bullima(spelling) and anerxia.I don't know how long she works out for, she's there when I arrive, & still there when I leave.Her complexion is pasty, & she looks generally very unwell. If there's vomit in the bins she could be bulimic (spelling? Whichever one it is they are the most destructive diseases as I believe no matter how much weight they lose they still see themselves as fat.
