Ugh, I had my second session with my nutritionist today and I just hate it. She just talks about my weight being too low (I know for a fact that it isn't. BMI says I could be 5 pounds less and still be a normal weight) and she wants to stabilize my weight at five pounds higher than it is now. And she just says, "oh yeah, just eat more", like it's that easy. If I could do that, I wouldn't be there, lady! It's so frustrating. I don't see how I'm ever going to get better.
In my Set Free class last week, our group leader asked us who were suffering from ED's if we've seen a nutritionalist. I told her no, and she asked me why not. I told her because I didn't feel that I was that bad off where I would need to see one and besides, I have a Master's in Counseling--what can a nutritionalist POSSIBLY say to me that I don't already know? I know what a "healthy" meal and diet is composed of, and I know that I'm underweight at 5' and 96lbs. I just refuse to gain any more weight, if entirely possible.
I actually think my body won't lose any more weight--it sems to be stuck at 96 (which is so flippin' frustrating).
Hmm, well, I just thought I'd say that. Good luck to you.
That's what I've always thought would happen if I went to a nutritionist. I'm not underweight, but I have had an ED since 1996. I don't know how else to become "underweight" because I don't hardly even eat and when I do, I try my best to find a way to throw it up. I still get on the scales and see 142 and cringe. I'm ok with 141 or below, but for some reason, even with working (which is a lot of walking) and not eating, I seem to gain weight. If I go to a nutritionist, he/she will say that my diet is wrong and I have to eat at least 2000 calories/day and 20 fat grams, while at present, I'm getting way less than 1000 calories and at the MOST, 2 fat grams.
