I sure hope so Liz, this is scary shit! I just need to slow down the gain. I do eat when I am hungry hopefully that will be enough.July 8, 2013 at 12:15 pm in reply to: Swollen Feet and Ankles #7692
Thanks Tangytam and Liz.
Being at the morbidly obese state that I am I will say I am NOT ok with gaining more weight especially since I put on 20 in the last 3 months from refeeding. I have to slow this down. My quality of movement and life took a dive. There has to be an easier and gentler way. I was force feeding. I’m not going to do that. And I want to workout, really I do. When I don’t I don’t and I did not have energy for it for a year or longer due to natural undereating.July 8, 2013 at 12:11 am in reply to: Swollen Feet and Ankles #7641
Also I am 51 post menopausal. There was no expectation for my bone mass loss or other things to heal fully at my age. Usually past a certain age I guess they just give up on you.July 8, 2013 at 12:10 am in reply to: Swollen Feet and Ankles #7640
2 years refeed with no exercise and maybe, only maybe I might recover. I did a real job on my metabolism with diets and naturally eating low calorie for so many years.July 7, 2013 at 5:19 pm in reply to: Swollen Feet and Ankles #7581
Thank you Tangytam for all the helpful info. I’ve looked into a possible ED as I did have the symptoms associated with a refeed.
I even emailed Gwen and got dire predictions because of my age. I just plain refuse to give up and only half live.
I’ve looked into salt, I’m not taking that much in compared to intake, it could be lack thereof, I am not sure.
I have started walking. I have to move, I want to move, so I’m gonna move. It seems to help just a bit. I am also going to start weight training again since I am antsy.
Like I said it was not a problem until the refeed.
And yeah, the Drs see me and freak out and tell me I am dying, like ALL the time. And my bloodwork is fine. No one ever bothered to ask me if I was eating enough. They are more than willing to do bariatric surgery on me tho o.O.July 7, 2013 at 11:16 am in reply to: Swollen Feet and Ankles #7518
I might just need to up my liquid intake, I was fanatical to get it down.July 6, 2013 at 12:22 pm in reply to: FREAKIN MenOPause, anyone else as old as me here? #7341
I’m done already. 51. I found that eating more food resolved many issues for me.
