Tough Times

Thursday, October 09, 2008

Okay, so I went to the doctor's yesterday and I lost 4lbs., I wasn't really too surprised because I've only eating on average 700 calories a day and burning 500+ at the gym. I swear if I eat over 1,000 calories a day I start to gain weight, it's horrible and I really don't know what to do... I'm always consumed with what I'm eating, how many calories it has, how much fat, etc. It's consuming my life and it's been like this all my life. As a young kid I was overweight and got picked on then age 10 and 11 came along and I became anorexic and was hospitalized and ever since then my weight and food have always been a big issue with me. I don't know how to overcome this anymore... I have a hard time talking about it because my family and people around me just don't really understand what it's like or how hard it is. I'm sure there's people just like me on this site, everywhere, and it would be really nice to talk to someone that's going through it or has overcome it, thanks!

    I would have to agree with cogille and angel, and would like to add that unless I am very mistaken 700 calories or even 1000 isnt enough to sustain anyone. It sounds like you are still battling your disorder and I would be worried that you arent getting enough calories to be a normal active person.

    1st I wanna Congrats U 4 taking the Step of 1st Blog
2nd I'm glad that U know the reason behind that...U r too Obssessed with Ur weight

3rd my advice to u is to Take a deep breath, write it down, and make a promise with Ur own self by saying:
"Today, Iím planning to be back on track but with a new Healthy style...I'll not beat myself to be Skinny...But I'll try new methods to be Energized for life not to faint."

Cheat days is always needed and specially when it ONCE a week

Good luck &keep me updated my dear.

Lots Of Love,

Have you seen a counselor for the reasons behind your eating disorder? I would encourage you to do so. Discovering the reason(s) (if you don't already know them) and talking them out with someone is the most help I know of. I'm not anorexic or bulimic, but I have a dear friend who was anorexic. She credits her healing to the counseling she received.

I hope you can and will get help!
