Loss Of Appetite

Monday, May 12, 2014

Yesterday was a very bad day for me.... Mother's Day is just a holiday that is too much for me and I end up missing my mom a lot and the guy who raised me and stepped in to be a mom and a dad is still in the hospital so it made it even harder.

I went to the gym yesterday even though I didn't really feel up to going. I did 20 minutes on the arc trainer and 20 minutes doing weights. Earlier in the day I did a 3.25 mile walk, 300 crunches, 200 leg exercises, 2 minute plank, and 100 squats. After the gym I managed to do a 30 minute workout so I burned a little over 800 calories yesterday.

Yesterday I didn't eat or drink anything until dinner and I had to literally force myself to eat. The entire day my stomach hurt, had some discomfort, bloating, and had no appetite at all. Even the smell of food made my stomach do flip flops and cartwheels. I forced myself to eat a salad that I made which included romaine lettuce, some roasted chicken breast, apples, and greek vinaigrette. 2 bites in and I lost my appetite all over again. I managed to choke down the salad and some watermelon and pineapple before I felt so overly full I could puke. The volume of food wasn't much and calorie wise was very low so I don't understand why I felt so full.

Today I feel the exact same and have no appetite :( I wish I had an appetite because my boyfriend cut up my pineapple and watermelon for me last night and I love nothing more than fresh fruit. I'll see how I feel in a little bit but for now it's looking like I won't be able to eat breakfast.

    Sorry you're having hard time! It sounds like a stress reaction, with everything happening to you right now it sounds like that. I have similar reactions, oh and this definitely happens to me when I see a gain on the scale. I 'punish' myself by subconsciously starving myself. I'm not saying that's what's happening you but just be careful. All of this stress plus the weight gain are probably weighing on your mind. Try to relax as much as possible and don't force yourself to eat too much or you'll associate eating with negativity. Give it another day or too and hopefully your appetite comes back.
    Hang in there!
