If “controlling your food intake” and using that a criterion for being “superior” to one coworker is what makes life meaningful for you, then congratulations on finding your place.

You’re the epitome of the antithesis of what women should be striving for. Are you quite aware that you are bragging about being superior for conforming to a ridiculous stereotype that being thin is somehow laudable? That you are saying that by starving yourself, by depriving your body of essential nutrients (which make no mistake, at 1000 calories a day that’s what you are doing), by becoming thinner you are somehow more worthy than women who are not doing this? 

OP, I don’t care how thin you get or what you look like: your misguided superiority complex and attitude towards your coworker are downright hideous. No amount of depriving yourself of food is going to make THAT attractive.

Speck_:  Diagnosed narcissist or not. – OP needs to work on her eyebrows while she’s at it. They’re not befitting of a superior being.

People who are secure with themselves have no need to measure their successes in terms of others’ failures. I feel sorry for you.

writersblock:  Will you be my friend? It is as if you wrote those words on my behalf… exactly what I want to say and what I hope the OP reads and comprehends.

WesterosBarbie:  while I continue to have concerns (to put it mildly) about how you talk about women and assign them worth, I do sincerely hope that your diet is being supervised by a professional.  I will say that my experience has shown that my students who see a strong relationship b/t food and control [having control or not having control] have generally needed counseling or the assistance of other medical professionals.  I would encourage you to discuss these attitudes of yours with a medical professional to see if s/he believes that further follow-up is needed.

Any lurkers reading this thread, please note: Assigning yourself moral worth (“superiority” in OP’s terms) because you are able to control your food intake at a severely limited level may be a symptom of disordered eating.  Anyone who is concerned that they may have a problem with disordered eating really needs to look at the link that sparklesalways:  provided and further consult with medical professionals.

ETA: I get that it is so tempting to be acerbic to the OP, but we’ve recently had some members say that they’ve felt skinny-shamed at WB, so I think we need to be careful with our comments in that direction as well.  Character, moral worth, etc. are not connected to our weight or body types.

How dare you. Honestly, how dare you JUDGE this woman? I don’t care if you know every single thing about her, down to her shoe size, what color her poop was this morning, or the song she sang in her elementry school talent show. You have NO RIGHT to pick on this woman like you are. Honestly, you are a true Mean Girl. I feel bad for her, because she has to be near you. God, who would want to actually be real friends with you? Gosh only knows what you say about other people behind their back. Stop judging people, who you think you are helping, and work on yourself. You are lucky she hasn’t reported this to your employer honestly.

Women acting like you was exactly what drove me to therapy to get over feeling so completely shitty about myself. You (ok well YOU probably don’t) know when you think people are talking about you and judging you, and usually that’s complete paranoia? Turns out this poor woman has to be subjected to it all day. What a Mean Girl. What a discouragement to everyone in your life. 

mrsfiddlesticks:  YES. THIS. ALL OF THIS.

A11eycat:  And perhaps the all around heavy black eyeliner. I thought that look went out…decades ago, along with teased bangs. I feel like I am 12 all over again. 

I mean, I totally see the hypocrisy in bringing looks into it after what OP did, but come on.

Current fat girl who goes to the gym every day, just wanted to stop in with my .02. I used to be thin, very thin, and very athletic. I also used to have very disordered eating at times in my life. I was so filled with anxiety about going to the gym about exercising around fit people. I told myself that no one would be thinking ill of me, especially because here I was doing something to be healthier. Surely no one was shallow and judgmental enough to be criticizing the fat girl sweating her ass off in the gym. But apparently those people do exist. So, thank you for fueling my angry work out tonight.

1,000 calories a day = an eating disorder. Please don’t preach your approach to others. It’s bad enough that you are putting your own health at risk. Skinny does NOT mean healthy. Or attractive, to most men…all the men I know appreciate some curves.

This is horrid. How dare you fat shame – focus on your own life.
I am 5’10 at 190lbs. I think I look great – I like my hourglass figure and carry my weight in my boobs and butt. My husband loves the way I look.
To be honest but I do want to lose 20lbs so I could have a healthier weight when I get pregnant as it is better for the baby.
I cook religiously every weekend for the week. I usually make beef stew, tomato soup, French onion soup, chicken soup, baked chicken with broccoli,…etc you get the picture. I cook clean and follow a strict diet… I haven’t had anything fried in like 6 months because my husband can’t eat fried food.
I have to see a personal trainer 2-3 times a week to lose weight. Sometimes diet is not the answer.

Yeahhhh OP I’m 5’4″ and a recovered anorexic, and my intake hovered around 800-1000 calories usually (granted i was also working out 2 hours a day) when I first started. Then I hit a plateau and went down to 700. Then 500. Then 300. Then I had to be hospitalized. Once it becomes easier for you start drastically cutting calories it is a VERY slippery slope, especially for someone as body-conscious as you come off.

Just a word of warning. Caloric guidelines are there for a reason. I ended up losing a lot of hair, my breasts are prematurely saggy, and my metabolism is pretty much shot for life. Also the temptation to starve yourself for quick weight loss never really goes away, and that’s how people wind up relapsing and dying. So just.. be careful.
