Nearly 3 years later, and my "recovery" has taken a pretty awful turn.
About 2.5 years ago, I had a brief period of extreme dieting and being at a very low body weight. This only lasted about 4 or 5 months (my family and friends promptly put an end to it).
I was under significant pressure to gain weight, so I put on pounds fairly quickly, and got back up to a healthy weight about 1.5 years ago. And by healthy weight, I mean the ideal weight that my doctors set for me. After that point, I was able to stay at my ideal weight for about 6 months. I was healthy and happy. The best I had felt in years.
After that...I don't know what happened. I had some sort of turn around (this was 1 year ago exactly). I started getting ravenously hungry all the time and I started putting on extra pounds. I'm now 15 lbs heavier than my ideal weight...it looks terrible, and my body seems unwilling to let me diet again, so I can't seem to lose it. I don't want to be dangerously underweight again, I learned my lesson...I just want to be back down to my healthy goal weight.
Has anyone else had this problem? Suggestions?
