Twehner is one of our drill sergeants .. lolll ... she helps with some of the exercise challenges (like crunches) and always has a welcoming smile.

Yes, with pleasure. Due to external factors like stressful job and other conflicts, my weight has decreased very rapidly, I think. I’ve lost 7 lbs in a month. Would you say that this is normal, to lose 6 lbs in a month? I don’t eat and it isn’t because I see myself overweight or because I think I’ll gain weight. It’s just a bit of depression and owning a hectic life. Would you guys say I have eating disorders? I weigh 127 now. I just stepped on the scale and that was the number I got. I am 5’3 but do not have a small from. Naturally, I have big hips, you know, I am curvy.  Those who know me say I am getting underweight. My face, I admit I look like I suffering from starvation. Would you say I have eating disorders? What do you think?

*sigh* I have been healthy all my life, running, working out like crazy, and eating healthy. Now my health has gone downhill due to my busy life. What can I do about it?


I KNOW I'll get the support I need from you guys. I just need to know if I really have eating disorders and if I do, how can I work on it. I swear I cannot eat. I can't :( I don't get hungry anymore.
657315 tn?1319494987
Oh, I didn't miss anything - I thought you'd try to tell her some sort of evil about me...

Good thing you didn't!  She'll find out soon enough.
579258 tn?1250652943
Ohhh .. sure Twehner .. tucking the little one in brings back wonderful memories...  :0)

PrettyKitty .. you still there?  Would love to hear your experiences!
541150 tn?1306037443
You could say I have lost between 6-7 lbs.
657315 tn?1319494987
Sorry, when I typed that, your response wasn't showing up yet!
541150 tn?1306037443
I meant to say small frame lol
657315 tn?1319494987
PrettyKitty1, do YOU think you have an eating disorder?  Sometimes we do drop weight rapidly...   But NOT being able to eat isn't good, either.  It could be physical, or it could be, like you asked, an eating disorder.  Have you had a complete physical in a while?  How do you feel?  You mentioned stress and depression.  That's not good, but you've gotta eat!

Hi all....I've been watching the dog show and just got here.   Welcome PrettyKitty
579258 tn?1250652943
Did a few quick calculations .. and based on 5'3", 127 pounds, 24 years old and average exercise, you need to eat 1,850 calories a day to maintain your weight.  Your BMI is approximately 22.5 which falls in the normal range.

Now, as for not eating, that is not healthy.  Your body needs energy to function properly.  Try eating a little something six times a day .. it doesn't have to be so much .. just do it because you know it is healthy.  Our lives do get busy and hectic, but we need to take time out to make sure we are healthy.

How much are you eating in a day?  How many days are you not eating?  Losing 6 pounds in a month is not bad if you are at a heavier weight, but you are fairly small.  Not sure about whether you have a true eating disorder or whether you have allowed your busy life to dictate your activity.  What do you think????
