I never thought I had a diet problem but reading your info felt good and gave me permission to eat as I pleased. But now I am afraid that I will be fat. And then how will I dance ballet or feel sexy? I’ve had cold hands and feet my entire life but then I did start dieting in 8th grade when puberty first brought me curves. So I can’t wrap my head around the fact that I’m just supposed to be ok with being heavier even if temporarily or maybe permanently. Also I ate a whole pint of Haagen das last night and my stomach really hurts this morning.
But overall I’m ok and I’m going for a hike. I cannot not exercise at the moment.January 20, 2014 at 11:27 pm #14724AlatorasParticipant
I think it would be worth considering that feeling good would better than looking good, if the worst possible scenario were to happen and you gained weight permanently.
From my own experience, I have gone from 57kg to 96kg in 8 months. The fastest gain was the first two, where I went from 57 to 82kg. Thing is, when you have debilitating health symptoms, what is the point in looking “sexy” if you can’t even enjoy every day living? Even if you don’t currently have any deblitating symptoms, they might be on the way if you continue to starve yourself (which is essentially what anyone who diets does).
I think the chances are very high that if you stick with it and stick with it well, you will find that the weight gain is not permanent. Actually, forget weight – what matters is how you look visually. You can have two people with identical weights, and one can look fat while the other looks slim or muscular. I think that it’s very likely you will find yourself with a decent looking body at the end of it all. I don’t think it’s ever going to be super-model skinny, though, but who wants that?
For your information, I am 182cm tall and male. The weight gain I’ve got I am actually pretty damn happy about. Some of the weight has been redistributed to other parts of my body and I can see that as time goes by, I’ll probably have quite a muscular physique. I’m not even doing any physical activities either! Just sitting on my ass all day playing video games.January 23, 2014 at 9:21 pm #14751thesaiParticipant
Ok thanks for taking the time to respond. I feel like I’m going to eat what I want and this will balance me out without too much weight gain. I only starved myself for 3 months and even though I’ve been a chronic dieter I always relapse and pigged out frequently so never was under a size 4/6 and mainly a size 8.
However I have always had cold hands and feet. Aren’t some is us just on the cooler side.
How do people feel about colonics? Are they a no no?
