Hi everyone - I'd just like to say, I never had a fear of scales until i bought some today - I weighed myself for the first time in months - and I was relatively happy with the result. I then noticed the scales were not EVEN. I then weighed myself on a more even flooring, I GAINED AN EXTRA 2 STONE TO THE WEIGHT I HAD BEFORE!
All those disorders often involve a love/hate relationship with the scale, but many people with EDs are compulsive about weighing themselves quite often.
Pocrescophobia is the pathological fear of gaining weight. I have no idea what the fear of scales would be called, but I assume it would be easy to invent the word with some knowledge of Greek prefixes (which I don't have).
