Weight Gain No Appetite/Bad Acid Jan 22 2013

Living in the dorms makes this slightly difficult since I don't have access to much food or a kichen.

Thank you so much for your input, luckily I don't consume most of the things you said I should avoid!

Today my acid wasn't too bad but I did not eat nearly enough because I was away from food the whole day, I walked down to get some falafel but the restaurant was closed and then I couldn't eat for another three or four hours:( Hopefully tomorrow goes better.

Thank you so much.

I probably should start keeping a food diary, I'm not really sure what triggers it at all. Like I can eat pizza or spaghetti some days and feel just fine, but other days it hurts me.

My biggest problems are in the morning, I wake up with absolutely no apetite and I just feel queazy. I have figured out that if I wake up earlier, my appetite comes back sooner but that's all I have noticed so far.

Sunday was my one year anniversary for starting recovery and in celebration I faced my last fear food!

My first pancakes in over a year! 

Eeeeeeee.

Keep up the good fight, you guys xx 

Recovery is possible and totally worth it. I know it's hard, believe me. But just keep fighting:)

Oh on here it still has my very low ED weight. I am prolly 100-110 now which is a good weight range for my body type as I am only 5'2'' and naturally petite.

I lift as heavy as my body lets me. I have definitely become stronger in the last few months I am up to benching 75lbs, deadlifting 110lbs, and squatting maybe 60? I don't remember exactly what it is. And a few months ago I was benching 45lbs, deadlifting barely 95lbs, and squatting 35lbs. So yes I do up my weights when I start getting stronger.

And it has been a year since I started recovery, I am at a muchhh better place now and like to think I am 80-90% recovered. But you can never really be fully recovered, it always lingers even if you've been recovered for years. (We don't even really focus on ED in therapy anymore, just ocd and anxiety.)

Thanks you guys I started 30 Day Shred because I didn't feel like I was doing much at home. I I stretch, run, and hoop at home but that was about all I was doing.

At school on the other hand I bench, I deadlift, I squat,, you know, all the works. We do lifting Monday Wednesday Friday and then Tuesday Thursday is cardio. So I know my way around a gym. Come this fall at uni I will be able to walk into the gym and know what I am doing :)

I am pretty much willing to do whatever works consistently.

I am thinking about doing p90x after I am done with 30 Day Shred. Would that help me get the super strong bod? Or do you recommend something else? It's easier for me to just do p90x because I already have that but if it's not worth it I can find something else.

Lifting 3x/week is going to do far more than 30 Day Shred or p90x. Worry about building muscle before revealing it. It's okay if you don't have picture-perfect abs. Here's all you need to do:

1. Lift heavy.

2. Eat right.

3. Love yourself.

:) Best advice I have gotten so far. Thank you,

Well I have been doing weight lifting in my school weightroom (and other workouts but definitely lifting as well as cardio) for months and I just started Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred about a week ago. Plus other stuff I don't think I have been eating enough though. If I am eating too little will it make it harder to get more fit? Because if so I will work extra hard to eat more, I just have a hard time upping my intake.

Oh and Smashley, I forgot to say what I was going to say,

How often do people cycle between the two? And how exactly does it work?

Can anyone else back up what Smashley is saying?

I do want to thank Tina for the link she gave. It was pretty helpful. The only problem was that Staci was on a a paleo diet so it's not super easy to compare eats but it still gave me the right idea:)

Jamie, I am 17 so no I am not 18 yet. Thank you for the advice. I don't eat much sugar right now except for fruits so that's not a problem and I definitely eat vegetables (I am a vegetarian).I have been working on trying to up my protine lately, but it's not easy being a veg and all. But I have definitely been working hard at making that happen.

Doobe, I understand that they are dramaticized but it was the best way I could show you sort of what I was aiming for, toned. It is hard to find advice about anything other than losing weight because that's what is "in" these days. And since I am not overweight that's not the diet/nutrition I am looking for. I don't want to look like those girls specifically I was just giving an example of the toning I want to do, I want to look however my body will naturally look when it's toned. I just don't know how to get there.

Arman, I am unsure what qualifies as lean, I mean I am in the lower end of a healthy weight, does that count as lean? If so How do I make it so that all my working out actually shows progress. because I have been working hard for months but not much has changed:/

Thank you all for your input!

I try! I really don't even know where maintenance is anymore! I feel like I ate too much or too little, there never feels like a "just right",

@smashley23

Yeah I definitely lack in strength..hah

I unfortunately don't have the money to invest in such things:/ I literally have 0 dollars. I have to make do with what I have which is a highschool weight and mat room, my apartment gym and my own body.

I know, I have been having a bout of relapse but I am fighting it really hard.

I am also worried that if I eat too much I won't gain muscle but fat. I don't really know how the whole thing works. I have been trying to up my protein lately and in the last few days I've noticed I definitely need more.

Yeah I increase everything once I can start to do more. Like with benching I started out the school year only being able to bench the bar(45lbs) and a few days ago I actually benched 70! Which is realllyy good for me. I'm not sure what I am squating, not much more than a curl bar though:/ I could probably try starting to increase the weight and do fewer reps,

I do cardio Tuesday and Thursday like running or insanity and then after school I do a lot of hooping especially since it has been so nice out.

Monday Wednesday Friday I do normal stuff, Bench press, squats, burpees, pushups, crunches, insanity, pull ups, filthy fifty, etc.

That sort of stuff.

@diane_herbert

For sure do it! I have so much fun. I literally hooped for three hours on Friday haha.

I can do it forever, it takes a while to get a trick down so..practice makes perfect haha.

Plus where I'm at it's been really nice outside so I have been getting lots of sun being outside hooping which makes my body feel super happy (Vitamin DDDD)

Nicee:) I honestly don't know what my measurments are. I used 10 foot pvc piping to make mine and I don't know how I could go about weighing it. Good luck working on your hooping though xx

Oh my! Haha that sounds so difficult! Good luck working on that. Yeah I tend to run and dance while hooping if I am listening to super energetic music. I used to do hoop squats haha, where I would be hooping and then squat with it still going around my waist. I don't know it was something that entertained me. Two parks for the price of one lmao.

Yeah! I will be going to Western Michigan. There won't be any kitchen access that I am aware of, 

I will have a meal plan but I don't really like eating buffet style/cooked for me it grosses me out cause I don't know who's touched it and I never saw it prepared (still dealing with lingering OCD behaviours and anxieties) so I feel like I will be eating there minimally. So ways to eat and prepare food in my dorm would be the best thing ever.
