ok so i've done the 3-4 apple juice fast several times in the last year. the only good thing coming out of it is it does clean out my system. and although its just water weight that i'm losing, i know that it has cleansed my organs out b/c of all the waste that comes out. it's kind of gross, but it feels so good to walk around and be light again. amazing how much a litte bit of food weighs you down. but is juice fasting a bad idea? i've read up on it a lot. many sites suggest not to do it especially if one has an ED. i've also read that it slows the metabolism way down. but i don't see how it can slow the metabolism if i'm consuming 800-900 cals of all juice vs. on a typical day only consuming <600 on food. ?? anyone have suggestions? what slows metabolism worse? eating less than 1000 qd, or fasting short term x 3-4 days? and then easing foods back in over the next week. ??
i'm 26. stats: hw: 122(in treatment)lw: 89/stgw: 110/ltgw: 105/cw: 114
i joined the gym 2.5 weeks ago. work out 4-5 x's a week. will be working out with a personal trainer biweekly. he's going to help me get in shape but is asking that i eat 80 grams of protein qd, and eat 1000 cals. qd in order to get the results i desire.
i have a question to those who may know why this is happening. over the last 6 months, some how my body has gained or held onto water weight or i'm storing everything i eat b/c of calorie restriction has been restricted soo much over the last 3 years. i've had an ED x 12 years. i know that my body is getting really messed up by my head and my ed. i'm getting really freaked out as to why i keep gaining weight. if i keep gaining, i think i'm going to kill myself!! i hate feeling this way. plz help if you got some answers. thx
hey. so i went 9 days on just water. i did really good, no slips...and i had a lot of energy. then...the 10th day was a blow to the head. i freaked out over a salad i had, and from then on, the whole day was eat...purge...eat...purge. i threw up so much. i felt so stupid. now, i'm trying to get back to thinking clearly and not eating. and if i do i have to keep my limit under 200.
quick question...have any of you fallen down to your goal weight, kept it for a while, then your weight sprung back up, leaving you in the endless battle to get it back down to where you liked it? ok, so in '05 i was able to get down to my goal weight of 92, then dropped 3 more pounds. i was able to maintain it for one year, then it inched back up to 105/110 range over the last 3 years. i usually maintain around 105, which isn't bad, but i am trying desperately in every regard to get atleast down to 95 so i can feel good about myself and stay sane. but i am stumped as to what or how to do it. i'm a vegetarian and try really hard not to eat breads/carbs, no sugar, and try to eat just fruits and veggies, but even then i feel bad about eating, so i try to only take in water. but i have no weightloss !!! i am really angry at my body b/c it's not acting the way most bodies would if they were being starved. most people lose weight when they don't eat: right?
i know that eating some protein would probably help, but then that means i'd have to eat and once i put anything in my mouth i feel this HUGE guilt trip, and i get really tired after i eat anything. does anyone get tired after they eat anything? i injured my left foot about 3 months ago, and cant exercise too much b/c then i can't walk. i walk 3-5 miles at work every day so i am still getting in exercise. i drink 80-96 oz h20 every day. i take vitamins. i cannot figure out what i need to be doing to lose weight. anyone have suggestions? i know that i've created a plateau in my weight and i just need to find a way down the plateau. help!!!
hw:122 (in treatment)
does everyone still get their periods? when i weighed around 94 i lost my period x's 6 months. i just really hate my period. i want to lose it. i hate how it makes me feel, what it does to me: bloat me up into a fucking balloon. my boobs hurt. are there any supplements to rid these symptoms? i read that 600 IU of calcium a day helps, but i haven't tried that.
also, another question for someone to answer: after walking around all day at work, my knees and legs swell. i know it's water retention, but has anyone worn ted hose, or support hoses? once you start wearing them, do you always have to wear them? i have this thought in my head that if you start to wear them, you have to always wear them? is this true? anyone know?
hope everyone is good. my email is email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
thank you soo much for your help.
Where do you find clothes that fit and flatter your body? I've bought some suits at Macys (my workplace attire is business-formal) but even the size 2-petites are too small for me (well the blazers are anyway; unfortunately thats not the case with the trousers). I've gotten a few tailored but the main probably is really in the shoulder / upper arm / arm pit area (as my chest is very small), where it's hard to adjust. I just look sloppy-- and unnecessarily fat-- when I wear it. Where do you guys find clothing that fits your small frame?
Anyone else notice that people look at them differently based on their weight? As I get thinner, I notice guys checking me out more... (which sucks since I"m a lesbian.. but I don't look it.. anyway it's still flattering).. But it certainly does nothing to encourage me to gain again.
Just curious what other people's experiences have been.
tummy is hungry
and eyes are so heavy
it feels like a milllion pounds is on top of me
