Common Questions and Answers about Anorexia recovery normal weight


Avatar f tn Most bulimics have normal weight or a bit over. You need to get a referral to a doctor or therapist who works with eating disorders so they will know how to help you. All of these behaviors are symptoms of an eating disorder, even if they seem very different, they are different sides of the same coin. You haven't been doing it very long which increases your chances of getting into recovery. So go ahead and find some help. You don't have to continue suffering this way.
Avatar f tn Don't worry, weight gain can be a sign that you are recovering! I gained 15 lbs in the beginning of my recovery from bulimia and then as I started eating meals and snacks regularly (that I figured out with my nutritionists help) and stopped using bulimic symptoms my weight balanced out to my body's needs.
687561 tn?1238400426 I consider myself a recovering anorexic. I am 22 and I spent nearly 4 months in a facility to help me overcome my eating/weight issues. I'm honest about everything... I know I still have a long mountain to climb as far as becoming completely healthy but I am really working on myself and I am following a healthy Raw Food diet and I exercise everyday. I love babies and children and I always dreamt that someday I'd be a mom... but I have NEVER had a period.
785277 tn?1244324809 No, I mean I am just a little confused maybe. So you are asking how to stick with one disorder right? That seems a little anti-recovery and I just wouldn't want to hinder your recovery, or help your eating disorder get worse. What I can say is that nobody's eating disorders are alike. Everybody seems to have different behaviors, and it's not like everybody just picks one or the other and sticks with it. My suggestion would be to maybe channel this in another direction.

773368 tn?1235322140 It discourages me from recovery. I just want to know, is this normal? And how long does this bloating last? I know it "depends on the person, blah, blah, blah". I just need an idea of how long this bloating might last.
1479003 tn?1287429481 I have really bad anxiety too, and I think I have weekend my immune system because I am trying to lose the extra weight I gained but its normal to be this size.

Avatar m tn Hello. I'm new and terrified for a friend who says she's been diagnosed with Lyme disease. At first, I had no reason to believe otherwise. However, I'm not sure now. She has lost an extreme amount of weight. A couple of years ago when this all began, she was losing weight quickly and couldn't eat anything unless it was pureed. Without going into all the details, she presented all the signs of anorexia and still does.
2215229 tn?1339342648 s because of past trauma or self loathing and depression and you need to deal with that before even thinking of recovery. Recovery is impossible without tackling why you had the ED in the first place, what you were trying to use it to.cope with. Therapy. Very important.
Avatar f tn I've had anorexia nervosafor almost three years, and I'm in recovery. Is it possible to gain 5 lbs in 3 days? I was not stuffing my face or sitting on my ***, I'm just hoping the scale was off because this is giving me a lot of anxiety.
Avatar n tn Anorexia is an eating disorder where the victim refuses to eat in the fear of gaining weight. They see themselves as being overly fat, when really they are just underweight. The victim may sometimes purge if forced to eat. A person with Anorexia cannot cope with it themselves. They require counsling and doctors to help them through it. There is always recovery though. I have a friend right now that is suffering from Anorexia Nervosa.
Avatar n tn I'm recently in recovery from 11yrs of anorexia. I have severe osteoporosis as a result. I am 22 years old. I was put on birth control for the estrogen to help replenish my bones, and return my period. (I do not menstruate without the pill) I have doubts of my being able to actually carry a child in the future, but was considering a surrogate mother. Is there anyway to tell if I'm even producing eggs anymore? Is a surrogate, with my egg and husband's sperm possible?
5613711 tn?1370974671 Also, if you have normal weight for height/waist and age, then probably you are getting enough. You may be losing weight due to over exercising. However, if your friends do notice and feel you have eating issues, then it is best to consult a doctor dealing with eating disorders and find out if you really have a problem. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
15146534 tn?1438723243 Straight to the point: How far underweight is a person when they are hospitalized for anorexia typically? I would like to avoid that ever happening. Im 19. 5'6 and use to weigh 130. But now I'm 108. Its hard for me to admit I have anorexia, because I just don't think I'm bad enough... My doctors took note the other month that was was loosing weight and underweight, and she knows I have an ED. But luckily she didn't worry much.
Avatar n tn I have struggled with anorexia for a long time and am currently in recovery. Your internist isn't trying to blow you off by giving you the answers she did. And don't feel alone - very few people recovering from eating disorders take pleasure from the process. While TV and articles can make it sound like an idyllic and nurturing process, it often feels like jumping off a cliff. Doing the right things feels incredibly wrong because of how you've conditioned yourself to think.
Avatar f tn Hello ~ Recovery from anorexia is a process that can take many years. It is common to encounter the emotional, psychological, and medical consequences of this disorder even after a long period of stabilization. The toll anorexia takes on one’s body can be immense. It is an integral part of recovery to stay closely connected to your physician and have regular check ups.
Avatar f tn ll gain weight, and try to understand if your underweight you will gain some weight to be healthy. A meal plan may also make you initally gain weigh but in the long term you will loose that weight if you stay commited to your meal plan, and moderated excersise. If i had only stayed commited to mine i wouldn't be going back to a treatment center this year.
Avatar f tn This is in order to reduce the anorexic thoughts and get your thinking back to normal as anorexia is a mental illness. So best of luck to you, i hope they can come back and that you can continue to gain weight and become a healthy bmi again. Just remember to think positive, it is scary and hard at first but it really pays off! You will be so much happier!
