Avatar n tn the thing is she has been trying to lose them normally through exercise and diet but since her metabolism is so shot from her bad anorexia its extremely difficult for her and that only makes it worse. i really don't like seeing her this upset. any advice?
Avatar f tn I have to admit that because I am not eating for fear of being sick it is making me feel increasingly thin which is in turn making me feel good about myself as I am thinking I will get thinner quicker but I know this is not the answer. I suffered anorexia when I was 17 and dont want to fall into that trap again.
Avatar f tn You say you've tried everything and that nothing works. That's what your telling yourself. Skinny doesn't happen over night you have to work for it and be strong. You can't honestly tell me that you stuck with a diet day after day being consistent and not cheating. You're looking for tips? This is not the place first off and secondly if you didn't manage to lose weight dieting because you were not motivated, lazy, and inpatient.
Avatar f tn You are free to disagree with me, but I think you might need to take another look at the situation. Her 5'3" and 120 lbs, with a bit of tummy bulge is considerably different from your previous 340 lbs. She's not even over weight. There are times when gastric bypass and lap band are called for; there are also instances in which pills may be needed. I don't agree that these are forms of anorexia. Anorexia is an extreme eating disorder.
Avatar f tn How much weight are we talking about here? if you are tying to get pregnant you have to maintain a bmi around 22 and body fat around 20% its crucial for TTC!!! I mean im losing weight but these #'s are my goal!! if you are around these numbers you might try an herbal supplement as simple as vitex and it will help you get AF bk!! if you are not you must try to get your #'s up a lil bit!! GL!! but tell us a lil bit more if you can plz!!
Avatar f tn t eat because you think you are fat, or you have a strong fear of gaining weight. Though technically, part of the clinical diagnosis of Anorexia Nervosa is losing 15 percent or more of what your normal body weight should be, you do not need to be super thin in order to have an eating disorder. Most of what an eating disorder, such as Anorexia, consists of is the emotional/mental aspect..
Avatar f tn Eat well ( organic helps-- look for healthy recipes, they don't have to taste bad to be healthy!) Exercise often (at least 3 times a week) Drink lots of water Treat yourself occasionally Research (I recommend the documentaries Clean, Sugar and Food INc as they provide insight into the food industry) Find a community ( this helps encourage/ support and motivate) Don't think of it as weight loss, think of it as a lifestyle change (this will help you get healthy and maintain any changes!
Avatar m tn When I was going to college, I took a workout class that was actually ROTCs pt class. The group encouragement was amazing!! Try looking into group classes offered by your gym or get a friend with similar goals. The buddy system is such a motivatior. Good luck!
Avatar m tn If you have already reached then then you should work owards maintaining it and not losing weight further. Too fast weight loss can cause rebound weight gain. Also, it can cause other problems such as loose skin, flabs at unwanted places etc. Apart from losing weight, you need to tone up the body. A combination of aerobic, strength training and stretches works best. Many people find it difficult to fit an exercise regimen into their lives.
Avatar f tn They should be able to set and appropriate goal weight for you, and give you some tips on losing some weight. Never try starving yourself or making yourself throw up. You are wonderfully made. Keep going. You can do it.
Avatar n tn A good dietary regime and exercises all will be helpful in losing weight. Losing weight in a healthy way is important for maintaining the glow of your skin. Eat lots of fruits, dark green leafy vegetables, fruits and consume less of potato, sweetened and processed foods. Start your day by drinking lemon juice in warm water. Have fruits with lots of vitamin C in breakfast that will help you cut fats as vitamin C is a fat burner. Exercise daily for 30-40 minutes like walking or aerobic exercise.
Avatar m tn I am 22 years old! I am losing hair to the extreme. I can wash or brush my hair and I will pull handfulls of hair out of my head! This is concerning me. I need some help!!
869670 tn?1239964618 I was so happy at the time where I thought I was my heaviest (which was a whopping 110 lbs. Big deal, huh?) I thought that losing weight after someone made a comment about me being a little chubby would make me happier. But losing weight didn't make me happy. It's making me miserable. I don't want to go through this anymore. I just need a release.
Avatar f tn There is a woman on here, Barb135, she started a weight loss challenge for 2015. We are challenging ourselves to lose at least 1lb a week, she is super helpful and gives so many tips. I need to lose 50lbs still but overall have lost 10. What is working for me is keeping a food diary and tracking my calorie intake on here. My calorie limit is 1200 a day or 1300 max. With that, I walk if in outside just around my house.
Avatar m tn 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. She's been in and out of the hospital many times and near death. She and her family continue to tell everyone that it's LD.
Avatar f tn I have suffered from anorexia and bulimia for 12 years now. I am currently at an over weight weight but started losing massive amounts right before I found out I was pregnant. Same thing happened with my daughter. Its going to be hard. I'm not going to lie to you but don't deprive yourself. Remember, restricting yourself is restricting the baby. talk to your doctor and see a psychologist that specializes in eating disorders and try to do some yoga and writing therapy.
Avatar f tn I am over wight and shouldnt be gaining much weight. I gain 17 kg in few month for 3 years ago and still havent lost that. I am planning to lose wight after the baby(in a healty way)..but thats why I dont want to gain much now. Any tips of what kind of food I should stay away from now? Or another healty alteretiv? And I am soon 19 weeks.
Avatar f tn Well, on the contrary, depot shots make you gain weight. If you have been on five cycles of shots and are losing weight, then you need to find the cause.
Avatar f tn Please see a nutritionist (you may need a referral from your doctor) to find out how to safely lose weight and what a safe weight goal for you would be. Thanks for reaching out for help here and I hope will not go down the destructive path of an eating disorder that can kill. If you feel you have underlying emotional issues leading you in this direction, now's the time to take the next step and get counselling professionally- if you are a Christian, from a Biblical counselor.
Avatar f tn I cannot exercise a whole lot do to a medical condition where I suffer from daily headaches and pressure in my head. Losing weight will actually help this condition. Besides my overall health, this is why it is so important that I lose weight. I have lost weight in the past, but always seem to gain it back. I think that I was not eating enough calories. i was staying at about 1000 a day. I lost 70 pounds, but gained it all back plus a lot more.
