    No idea- I just assumed I would add 4... Since 4 in UK is 0 in US, then 14 in ... Oh right... Lol. Maths isn't my forte.
    Wouldn't 10 here be 6 over there, then?

    My friend is... sort of going anorexic in a slight-binge then starve thing.
    She's got it in her head that if she starves herself for a week then she won't feel hungry anymore =='
    And she's only a size 12. Completely ridiculoud to starve herself.
    I rarely feel any hunger. But that is in cause of lack of sleep and exercise and not in cause of starving myself. But dont suggest that method to your friend, she will most likely die in cause of exhaustion if she tries stuff like that.

    Whats bad @ anorexia: 1) You die. 2) It looks disgusting.

    ...Ah, yeah, I guess. Wow, you guys are TINY. So a 12 really is small... anyone who's that size over here, I'd advocate a diet. xD

    ...If you don't sleep, you feel hungrier. Something about horomones being released and all. The secret to eating less and losing weight is getting MORE sleep, not less.

    I think a size 8-10 in Europe would be a size 4-6 in America... I think :S
    What with 4 being a 0 in America.
    EDIT: Damn this mac is slow. Only just noticed the last post.

    Hmmm.. If I remember right. Back in science class. There was a study of people who were anorexic. The thing was. When the body is starved. The next food source it gets. It remembers not having anything to survive off of. So it starts storing.. More FAT. And it’s a lot harder to get rid of.

    It’s just best to modify what you eat and the quantity of it. Try to exercise here and there. You don’t have to be like a body sculptor or anything..

    That skeletal look is achieved by the body using it's lean mass to survive. (your body is basically eating itself to survive!!!) if this isn't gross to anyone else then I don't know what will. So those super skinny anorexics are pretty much bone, a thin fat insulation, and skin. After that thin insulation of fat is gone the body starting with the liver and kidneys start shutting down, and death ensues. If that is what is beautiful I'd rather be ugly!

    WHAT? UK is the... 20th fattest nation in the world. about 60% of us are obese.
    And I know someone who hardly sleeps at all, but is still thin... I need to sleep more.
    And is it true that if you starve yourself, when you eat something, your body will more likely store it as fat as a preparation incase you starve yourself again?

    I actually do not find the idea of the body eating itself to be creepy. Of course, I did just take a course on biology with a huge focus on cellular respiration and the like, so I tend to think of those things on a molecular level. I don't think about fat... I think about fatty acids being converted into a compound to be used for cellular respiration. xD

    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends
