Re: am i anorexic?
i definitely think your behaviour would sooner or later lead you to the cycle of an eating disorder. it's great that you seem your aware of this, like that you are in fact eating much less. just one meal a day and some snacks definitely isnt enough for a normal person.
I believe too, that because you've been eating less, your body has slowed down your metabolic rate too - to conserve energy. this, when thinking bout weight loss/maintenance - is not a big help because when your body is slowing down and trying to conserve energy , you won't be able to lose weight easily because when you eat more, you'll more likely to gain more.
But weight is not the biggest problem here. what should worry you is that because you have a hypothyroid already, you don't want to slow down your metabolism even more. plus - if your not eating enough , you definitely would'nt get enough nutrients either in your diet to stay healthy.
i would say you should see a counsellor/psychologist about your eating disorder behaviours, as well as a gp to check for blood tests if you have any nutrient deficiencies etc, also possibly a dietitian/nutritionist too thgat will help you with meals and give you a more healthy and sensible approach to weight loss.
please take care, eating disorders dont seem to be fun, no.
