Hey there, came here looking for help and advice/
I'm a young female who struggles with EDNOS(eating disorder not otherwise specified). I most notably struggle with intermittent anorexia, binge eating and then purging.
Let it be noted that I am still overweight I'm 265 pounds(I have lost 100 pounds!) but along my weight loss journey developed problems with disordered eating.
It started as an OCD with calories. I know the way to lose weight is to restrict calories, and I became obsessed. Every single calorie mattered. I would cry over something as little as 50 calories. I began to purge(puke) excess calories and abuse water pills. This worked for awhile, I managed to lose 100 pounds, everyone congratulated me on my weight loss. Then I became pregnant and of course the weight wasn't coming off while pregnant, after I gave birth I was 30 pounds lighter than before I got pregnant, though. I was elated.
Now the weight isn't coming off as quickly as it did before I got pregnant and I'm struggling with my eating disorder. I still know very much that I need to lose weight, I'm still more than a 100 pounds over weight after all. It's frustrating, though because now I can't seem to lose it quite as easily.
My metabolism has hit a rock bottom low. I don't see results with my weight loss so I become depressed and unmotivated and then I binge eat and feel so guilty afterward that I go puke. My hair is starting to fall out, my nails peel and chip, and I have constant head aches.
How do I manage to lose weight even when I have an eating disorder. Usually the way to treat an eating disorder is to stop trying to lose weight but when I'm still morbidly obese that isn't even an option.
I feel hopeless and really am not sure what to do anymore.
I'm wondering if anyone else has struggled with an eating disorder along their weight loss journey and if they have any tips or advice on what to do. ):
