Ive lost a lot of weight. When will it be enough?

Hi. My name is Samantha, and honestly, Im here because I need to know Im not the only one. I need some sort of support in this struggle. I need to get things under control.

I had diabetes and was starting to have other health problems. I decided to do what everyone knows is the only true way to weight loss: begin eating in a healthy manner and begin an exercise routine.

Then I went into the hospital for a week. My electrolyes were depleated and my blood pressure was dangerously low. I have since put on about ten pounds--but I have also developed a terrible eating disorder. The way I look drives me crazy. I am smart enough to know what I see in the mirror isnt whats there, but Im not strong enough to overcome my disordered view. I think about my weight and what I eat every minute of every day. I have tried to end my life.

I cannot stop. Why did I change my life in the right way, just to get here and begin to do everything wrong. Im so exhausted. I cant stand living as the "fat" girl any longer.

Im sorry! I just had to get it all out.

Re: Ive lost a lot of weight. When will it be enough?

It sounds like you traded ED behavior. You went from overeating to undereating. I've never been anything but a few pounds overweight, but it was enough to get me exercising and watching what I eat. Then wham, bam I was underweight and in the middle of a stuggle with body image, food and control.

I had to get professional help. I'll say a little prayer for you.

Re: Ive lost a lot of weight. When will it be enough?

I appreciate that more than you know. Im actually seeing a therepist now, and while she helps, sometimes i feel like we arent on the same page. Shes much older than I am, and I feel like she isnt relating to me. She tries explaining all of these long winded ideas to me, that sound like theyre coming out of an instruction manuel. I feel like by the time shes done ranting, Ive already forgotten what we were talking about. Ha. Well, Im taking things a day at a time. I purged repeatedly today, but tomorrow is a new day.

Wow, just a little conversation here really made me feel better. Thank you.
