Half an ounce?
Don't sweat it. Just go on with your life-everyone eats a little more on their birthday. :)
That's not good at all. 3500 calories really isn't that much to be perfectly honest. You should never make yourself sick, even if you eat upwards of 5 or 6000 calories.
you threw it up probably because you're so used to eating such a little amount. If anything it's GREAT that you finally ate a decent amount! It'll speed up your metabolism, and you can consistantly eat 2000 calories, more if you exercise :D
Oh, I'm so sorry for assuming that you made yourself sick. That was pretty rude of me :( I agree with Mocha that eating more consistently will help speed of your metabolism and help your body adjust to a healthy amount of food. Keep up the good work! Trust me, I've been there, and I can assure you that you will feel INCREDIBLE once you put this eating disorder behind you and get back to your life again!
happy belated birthday! i'm sorry you threw up :'( but you shouldn't feel bad about eating cake and cookies on your birthday. it only comes round once a year, after all.
DONT LISTEN TO HER!!! 3500 calories is not awful! I had a look at some of your older posts and I noticed that you have an eating disorder. 3000 is recommended for recovery (if you're a teen) so 3500 is fine!
Keep on fighting peanutbutter (love the username by the way! :) ) you can do this!
I am so angry about that post

Smudgie, your post was not only ridiculously misleading, but potentially incredibly damaging to someone like peanutbutterxo who is trying to recover from chronically undereating.
I suggest you edit it and delete it.
Original Post by Smudgie98:
Your stomach rejected the food because it was used to smaller portions and was maintaining a healthier size.
The OP is trying to recover from an ED. Her body was, in that case, being UNhealthy throwing up - she needs to gain.
Also, just so you know, eating 3500 calories was AWFUL. There are 3500 calories in 1 pound of fat.
No, No, NNOO! 3,500 on your birthday? Why the heck not? Recovering anorexics eat 3,000+ caloreis a day all the time... actually, since you yourself are aiming for a BMI of 17.2, (5' 4", aiming for 100 lbs) I would begin to be worried about your own attitude to food and eating.
Yes, but since anyone who isn't dead burns calories during the day, a person who eats 3500 in one day will not gain one pound of fat. That's what's misleading about your statement - you skip that it won't actually cause the OP to gain one pound of fat.
Instead, you resorted to scare tactics about overeating for a person recovering from an eating disorder. That is completely unconscionable.
I didn't say it was wrong. I said the way you said it was misleading. I know how many calories are in a pound of fat. That fact is not useful when addressing the OP's concerns.
By the way, if being "right" is more important to you than actually providing appropriate support to members on this site, that's on you. You might want to do some thinking before you continue to argue this point. What exactly are you trying to prove?
