Losing weight after recovery anorexia

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight after recovery anorexia


Avatar f tn About five years ago I was diagnosed with anorexia with purging. With help, I haven't purged in about three years. I have been trying to lose weight and have been using weight watchers. I have had a hard time losing weight with this and haven't dropped any large numbers. I'm wondering if having an eating disorder for years can effect your metabolism even after years of recovery (by years I mean about 5). Could my metabolism be messed up for life?
Avatar n tn I'm recovering from 23 years of Anorexia. I've been in recovery for several years now and have gone through a lot of ups and downs with my recovery. I have been having problems eating so i am having trouble gaining the weight to help my body be healthy. I have severe stomach pain after nearly every meal and frequently i have attacks of vomiting and nausea after i eat. Sometimes the vomiting can last for a month or less of vomiting after every meal.
Avatar n tn So nutrient-rich foods would have more impact on the healing the body needs in the recovery process. For more information on anorexia, feel free to visit the bella vita website.

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.

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 m tn After suffering with anorexia for many years, I have sought help. At the moment I am eating around 2000cals a day and am scared-how quickly will this cause me to gain weight? In the past 4 weeks I have gained from 40kg to 41kg but I am now eating the full 2000 calories. Also why am I still sometimes hungry when I eat this amount?-it is so so much more than I used to yet I am more often than not unsatisfied.
Avatar f tn 5 years ago (when I was 19) I started restricting my food intake and after about a year this had evolved into full blown anorexia. I lost 15 kilos from 60kg down to 45kg (I am 168cm). I ate food but not much and I stopped taking the pill (levlen ed) cause I thought it made me fat. My hair started falling out, I looked like a skeleton and my periods stopped. However I was very unhappy and new I needed help. Thanks to some friends I started to work towards recovery.
Avatar f tn I am a 40 year old female with chronic anorexia - onset at about 20 years of age - first recovery period at about 30 years of age. Since then, too many relapses to count. After a few years, when I'd relapse, and then start refeeding, I had weight loss instead of the expected rebound gain. A friend of mine found some new research on this. I have been trying to research it myself, but can not seem to find anything yet. Do you know anything about this condition?
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 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 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 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.

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.
