Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight after recovery anorexia


Avatar n tn I started anorexia recovery 6 days ago. I'm 15 years old, female, 5"3-5"4, sedentary, only exercise I get is going to school. Every since my first day of recovery, I have been binge eating really really bad. I binge on sweets, carbs, and some salty foods. I can't stop, it makes me so frustrated that I start crying and it really makes me want to relapse.
869670 tn?1239964618 ) 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 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?
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 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'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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
5061022 tn?1363018223 its a constant battle and I hate it....I am trying so hard right now to fight losing weight the right way....I am having a very hard time.....
1479003 tn?1287429481 It's very hard. I didn't start getting recovery until I was able to let go obsessing on the weight. It's hard to do without help. Good for you on seeking help, and let us know how it goes.
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.
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.
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.
766752 tn?1234946743 hi i am 16 year old and i am starting to recover from anorexia my weight is 6 stone 2 but i keep feeling bloated all the time like when i have anything to eat is that normal when recovering from anorexia and what kind of snacks could i have because i don't like any fruits.
1050362 tn?1253918483 By that point my whole life was down to obsession about food and weight and I stopped caring about losing weight but only making the craziness stop! I have now been in recovery for 15 years and am still amazed at how free I feel. I strongly encourage you to get help, because otherwise it won't get better. Talk to your family doctor, or look for a referral to a therapist who is experienced with eating disorders. Eating disorders are about feelings and how we feel about ourselves.
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 f tn Hi Chrissy I have recovered from Binge eating disorder, Bulimia and Anorexia and I too put on a bit of weight following recovery. I wanted to be at a comfortable weight and since I study nutrition I decided to create my own diet. I lost a healthy amount of weight and still had a lot of energy to exercise. I suggest sticking to a high protein diet and limiting the amount of carbohydrates you eat.
