How much do you weigh? Before you think you need to lose, make sure you are really needing to, not just "thinking" you need to. I know I felt fat after treatment going from 53 pounds to over 100 in 3 months. I thought I would just lose 5 pounds but I started and it didn;t stop there. Within a few months I had lost 20 pounds and it was hard to stop.
I weigh from 88-90 now.....But im not that tall......And its like all the fat has accumilated nowhere but my stomach.....I cort of cant seem to get myself to starve anymore..I know I shouldnt...But the fact that I dont have the courage to, just scares the hell out of me......Its like I cant lose weight the healthy way and the lbs only drop when I do it the unhealthy way
I'm sorry but I really don't think you need to lose any weight. I know you may feel fat and all but even if you were like 4'10" tall, your'e still underweight. I suffer from anorexia and bulimia and I know how you feel. I find myself grossing out over my recent 10 pound weight gain so I don't look at myself in the mirror anymore(naked) and I only weigh myself once a day as soon as I wake up. I don't really know what to say. I am not recovered myself so I guess I shouldn't be giving others rebukes for wanting to lose even though they are underweight. When I feel really fat I just go for a nice long walk. It helps.
I really understand. When my weight fell to 53 pounds, I was commited to a locked facility against my will and everything was taken away from me. No smokes, no coffee, no exersize, no t.V. No anything. Because it was a ward for those who are in danger of themselves or others, I wasn't even allowed my crossstich or sewing. I was put on bedrest and told I would stay there until I gained 50 pounds. They forced me to eat 3,500 calories every day even though I had stayed under 60 pounds for 3 years and used to a diet of only 300-500 calories a day. It was hell. I can say that is the worst thing that has ever happened to me in my life. It was only 3 months and I had gained the full 50 pounds and let me tell you, I felt like the hugest flabbiet ugliest person alive. I cried and cried every day and resolved to lose it promptly as soon as I got out. (of corse I didn't tell the doctor that) every one said I looked great but inside I was being eaten alive. I lost some of the weight but not all (actually glad I didn't realising that i'd probably die before getting back down that low) but guess how long it took me? 2 years to lose 30 pounds!!!!! And I just found out I have low thyroid and I have actually put on 10 pounds in 2 weeks and even though I probably eat 800 calories a day or less, I am still gaining...I am angry and I feel fat too. Like I said, I go fort a walk and I power walk at least 2 hours a day. Hypothyroidism sucks. I can't lose any weight unless I eat nothing and even then I bet i'd only lose a pound or two at the most per week. Hope you get feeling better, and by the way, the more you diet, the slower your metabolism gets, I just don;t want you to end up like me. I love food and I am upset that I have to purge my meals just so I don't gain 5 pounds a week.
Oh my goodness....I am so sorry to hear about your thyroid and all that you have been through.....Yesterday my mom bought some jeans which were sposed to be 28 inches but was in a small cut, so it was around 25, and she couldnt wear it so she asked me to try it out....Then I tried it and it fit perfectly...When she saw it she went "oh my god!! You can wear it???" immediately I started screaming that I was fat and crying and thought of just killing myself........Thinkin of it still makes me cry.......Why must I gothrough this?
