Common Questions and Answers about Anorexia recovery quick weight gain


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 f tn s needs. I remember the weight gain scaring me a lot too at first but my recovery team reassured me that the number is not what I should be worrying about and my recovery is about me not my weight. Just keep that in mind that the number shouldn't control you or scare you. Maybe you should try blind weights if it bothers you which is not uncommon in the recovery process. Talk to your therapist about these issues so you can express your feelings in a safe environment which can support you.
687561 tn?1238400426 The research and those before you have proven weight gain with the right balance of nutrients (including fats) is the way to feel your best and eventually get your body regulating effectively to obtain and maintain your period.

2215229 tn?1339342648 Also be forewarned that when you start to increase your intake you will probably experience extreme hunger and immediately gain a lot of water weight as your body starts to heal itself from starvation. Don't freak out, this is part of the healing process and totally necessary and it will subside as long as you continue eating enough. (I found Gwyneth Olwyn's site, YourEatopia, extremely helpful in navigating the recovery process.
Avatar f tn The Eating disorder has nothing to do with Your weight it should not go on Your current weight, overweight people and people at a normal weight can be anorexic and bulimic and have other eating disorders while someone underweight can experience overeating. I understand what You're saying about doctors sometimes not knowing it but it is not right perhaps try finding a therapist You're able to talk to who recognizes the problems You're having.
Avatar f tn Well you're suppose to gain weight. You can't stop it. Not everyone gains weight. But as long as you're eating healthy and exercising then the weight you're gaining the baby needs and will most likely all drop off after birth.
773368 tn?1235322140 I've had anorexia for about 2 years now. I've been in and out of hospitals. This past year I've had the opportunity to recover by myself, or else I'd be going right back to the hospital. I was maintaining a "danger zone" weight for 6 months. My doctor was finally fed up and told me if I didn't gain any weight, then she'll have no choice but to put me back into a hospital. I was like, **** THAT.
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 n tn ve tried dieting and supplements and exercising more and name it! just to gain more weight. I have gone from 136 to 200 pounds in 6 months. This triggers my ED no matter what I do, eat or not eat, I still gain regardless. I saw an internist at Cleveland Clinic and I lucked out. She specializes in Sports Medicine and worked with althetic anorexics and exercise bulimics. She told me my weight gain is due to my ED.
6811971 tn?1385557755 I have recovered from both Anorexia and Bulimia and like yourself I struggle with bloating, and find myself often mistaking the bloating as weight gain. Wow! We are two positive people for this site. Yes everybody. YOU CAN RECOVER FROM AN EATING DISORDER. I had Anorexia aged 16-18, and Bulimia age 18-32. I am now 38 and the idea of being sick is yuck! The thought of overdosing on laxatives is something I wouldn't dream off now.
Avatar n tn Im still not allowed exercise because they still want me to gain weight which is EXTREMELY hard for me outside of treatment. What should I do!!
Avatar n tn From anorexia to bulima the bast 5 years my head is spinning from gaining and losing 20kg each way. I'm eating soo much and binge all the time. I try to get help, i'm seeing a psychologist but can only afford 2 times a month and isn't helping because sometimes goes to once a month. I'm a dissapointment and trying so hard to get back on track.
1223598 tn?1289968459 I just weighed myself right now to make sure and i have gone up. It CANT be weight gain, because everyone says i have not gained weight. And also, i have been eating regularily, healthy, there's no way it can be from weight gain. My normal weight is always 120 and fluctuates up to 125. I don't think i was underweight. I looked at a healthy weight. When I checked a few days before starting eating it was, 135. Now it is at 140, after only a few weeks. I am really worried.
Avatar n tn Don't know what 7stone is, but yes I agree with angelica. If you are below that, yes you can get some serious problems from being underweight -- malnourishment, which can cause anemia, vitamin deficiencies, which can affect your heart and your reproductive organs. If you have a problem with anorexia you can die from complications because left untreated it will affect your internal organs.
Avatar f tn Sweetheart, You will be placed in a hospital for longer than that if You continue not to eat and You will be forced to eat through a Nasogastric tube which You will gain a lot more weight from if You continue not to eat. I know that it can take over Your mind and it can make You feel horrible and it is difficult. I have been in hospital with Anorexia in the past for Five months and it was a horrible time, I had no control at all and was sedated if I tried removing the tube.
Avatar f tn So I'm a 16 year old girl, about 5'5' and 110lbs. I'm on a calorie restricting diet and exercising a lot to lose weight. My family doesn't know and I can't talk to them about it due to circumstances i cannot discuss. My one friend who knows about this tells me I'm on the verge of anorexia and people at school are talking about me saying how skinny I'm getting. When people originally told me this I took it as a compliment, now I find it embarrassing.
Avatar f tn 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!
