I`ve heard that anorexics don't even notice that they are that thin. Im not sure if that's true or not. But as for another person to notice a weight loss on an anorexic persons body wouldn't take very long.

How long before you start losing weight if your anorexic?

About a week. Unless you drink lots of water, it will be mostly water weight loss the first week. After that, it will speed up, then after a longer while, it will slow down because you have ruined your metabolism. If you starve yourself for just a few weeks, you're not anorexic yet, you are just dumb. If you continue on this path, you will eventually classify as anorexic, but it takes a significantly underweight person to be an anorexic.

You only eat a bagel in then you starve the rest of the day does that make you an anorexic?

No, not at all, actually. First of all, an anorexic probably wouldn't eat a whole bagel at once. Even if you want to, if you're truly anorexic, you can't, trust me. Second of all, if it's just one day, then you're not considered anorexic, you just didn't eat much that day. It has to be something regular for it to be given the title anorexic. Besides, what lots of people don't realize is this: You aren't anorexic unless you're underweight. If you're normal weight, but you starve yourself, you are simply fasting, or starving yourself, until you're underweight.

Can you be anorexic if you think your fat and isn't and wants to be skinny or lose weight and hate how you look?

Anorexia is defined as being preoccupied with worrying about a person's weight and daily intake. It affects every day of a person's life and eventually affects their relstionships with family and friends. Just thinking about your weight and being concerned about your apperance doesn't mean your an anorexic. The best option is to work on accepting yoursef for who you are whatever size you may be. If you decide to lose weight or get in shape make sure you do it for yourself first.
