thank you for your replys, im going to see my nurse today, im still feeling very low and want to cut back on the calories, i dont want to gain anymore weight, i only had 900 calories yesterday, and want to stick to 1000 calories aday, i just feel like ive gained way too quick, i feel so fat, i have enjoyed eating, but im so scared i wont be able to stop eating and i will get really fat again, i used to be a size 16, then i did weight watchers just to lose a bit, i wanted to be a size 12, i dont really know why i did it cause i was happy, i like food, i really enjoyed going out and eating and eating what i liked and not worrying about it, but all the ed thoughts are coming back, im scared that if i put on anymore weight no one will like me, and my family will feel ashamed of me, my head is driving me mad, i just dont know what to do.

hi guys, woke feeling very weak this morning and felt funny, think ive been over doing it with the walking, but i just cant seem to stop, i need someone to tie me down and stop me, my feet are so sore. i tried a bit of pancake yesterday, when my dad rang last night i told him as i was so pleased with myself, and he said whooooo whipp eeee, not in a good way he then said u need to eat the whole lot, not a bit thats not good enough, couldnt believe it, couldnt believe he said that, it made me feel like crap, but ive been strong and not let it bother me too much, i had a nice bowl of porridge last night before bed pushed my cals to 800, need more i know. tryed not to do any walking today but failed, didnt do quite as much as i normaly do but still had to do it, im not sure how im going to break this, ive been feeling very fat today, and horrible, hope i feel better tomorrow, i so want to beat this. went to the doctor today, because of my sore tounge, my over whelmin thirst and the fact that my toes keep going numb, she is doing some blood tests for sugar, full blood count and other things, she asked me if i could farst for 12 hours!!!!! i ask you is she mad? i told her no way, i was pleased with myself for that as only 2 weeks ago if she had said that i would have said yer no prob, give me a real reason not to eat then, so gave myself a pat on the back for that.

butter fly in the sky: im sorry you are feeling the way you are at the moment, i know how it feels, i quite other think about ending it all, then all this crap would be over, but i keep thinking of my kids and my family, what would they do if i did do that, then i think well they would be better off without me, which is stupid cause they love me, please try and talk to your mum, you need to tell someone how you are feeling so they can help you, i wish you all the luck in the world, and if u ever need to talk im here xxxxx

well had an ok day, walked to pick my daughter up from nursery, takes about 25 minutes there and back, not including waiting around for ages for them to let her out, i drove to tesco did some shopping, then walked in to town for a cup of tea brought my 2 daughters a milkshake each, one had bourbon and the other had treacle tart, i had 5 slips of them, and they are well yummy, another goal to aim for is to have one to myself, walked around the town did a bit of shopping, then went home, walked to the cafe had my usua boiled pots and peas, then i had a quarter of my daughters pancake, then walked home, pancake was lovely, but i guess all the walking around wore off the milkshake and pancake so not going to count them calories, then i walked down to sainsburys and asda trying to find something to have for my dinner, settled on roast beef dinner again, then walked to mcdonalds for a cup of tea then walked to my mums, so i did a lot of walking today, i was shattered by the time i got to my mums. im tucked up in bed now, im shattered. not going to do any walking tomorrow i need to break that.

food for today

B= apple and blueberry porridge made with milk 131 cals

L= boiled pots with peas 150 cals, quarter of a pancake,

S= hazelnut hot chocolate 33 cals

D=half a roast beef dinner with veg 200 cals

makes 564, not counting the cals in pancake cause of all the walking, im trying to think of a snack to have before bed, but dont know what to have, may have some biscuits, or a milkshake, not sure.
