Weight Loss Confused and a bit freaked. Nov 15 2011

Maybe the weight gain and increase in stomach size could be because you're expecting your period? I always gain weight (5-8lbs) about a week before my period and my stomach gets so bloated too.

Hey! I don;t have a ED (or at least I hope I don't) but I can relate to what you posted. I experience the same thing, it really is stressful/scary. I hate lying in bed, not being able to sleep, and then when I finally do, waking up after nightmares screaming, and then feeling that icy cold chill...ughhh it is awful. What my friend (doctor) recommended is Melatonin. You can buy pills, its a naturally occurring thing in your body which makes it easier to sleep, and can help with the nightmares/chill.

Also maybe you're stressed or worried about something on a deeper level? I studied sleep pattern/ dreams in Psychology and re-occurring nightmares/chills are often a symptom of a deeper issue which you're trying to avoid/repress. Try maybe talking to someone/writing down the feeling you have before you sleep, and of you get up after a nightmare, write down what it was and how you were feeling before and look for a pattern.

Hope this makes sense or helps :)

Weight Loss Using "that time of the month" as an excuse to binge Nov 11 2011

Oh my gosh!!! I can so totally relate! I think it is a week before my period and I'm having the worst time ever when it comes to food! I mean I'll eat healthy food, and be full, but its like my body is CRAVING the junk food so bad, and I always usually give in because I think, Oh I'm getting my period etc. And I end up eating SO SO VERY MUCCHHH!!!

So annoying. To make matters worse I also get so bloated and always gain anywhere from 5-8lbs before my period. So i can never tell if its water weight or weight due to my excessive eating...arrghh...!!


Weight Loss Have I gained weight? Or is it bloating? Nov 11 2011

Thanks for the reply, I was really starting to worry!

It has been almost 3-4 days and my stomach hasn't gone back to ''normal''. I'm really hoping that it is just all the water retention and stuff. Hopefully I'm going to head down to the gym tomorrow, and that should help a bit.

Thaaankks :D

When I[m feeling sick and down, food comforts me to an extent, but what really makes me feel better is a hug from mum :)

I feel for you. My friends don't know how much I *really* eat. When we go out, I can control myself. At home, when it is just me, i lose control and eat the worst food ever.

Well done on ''coming out'' it is hard, but it is the first step. You'll get all the support and more over here. You can do it.

Looking forward to reading more of your posts! All the best!

It annoys me when my friends and I sit down to eat, and if there are any left overs, all my mates expect me, being the ''fat one'' to finish  them.

NMTZ is fantastic! It is a tough work out but is awesome! I still have trouble finishing some of the sets and do the easy modification of the exercises yet I'm drenched in sweat after I'm done!

Weight Loss I am /destroying/ my body. Oct 28 2011
14:31 (UTC)

I can relate to everything you posted. I'm 5'0 and 135 pounds. I'm a binge eater too.

My life pretty much revolves around food. I've been bulimic, but have stopped because of the severe damage it caused to my teeth and the rest of my body.

My grades dropped too, because rather than studying, I was eating, eating and eating and constantly thinking about food. And when I'd sit down to study, I could never focus because A) I was thinking about Food  B) I'd just binged and purged so I'd be too exhausted to study.

As I type this, I've just finished binging (2 loafs of bread, Ice cream, Banana, custard etc) even though I just got my wisdom teeth removed three days ago.

I don't know why I binge either. It's not because I'm stressed or depressed or like that. I just start with a bite of something...and then lose all control and it turns into a FULL blown out binge...

Thanks for your help, untiedshoelaces!

Today is the first day after my surgery, my mouth is so sore and my face is so swollen, I can barely open it, the thought of chewing something sounds so painful, so I guess it sounds right that it will take about one week till I can start to eat solid types of food again.

I'm going to be eating so much ice cream haha :)!
