I think I am relapsing


I am a 22 year old female, I had anorexia from 16-21.

I started to recover in July 2011 and I have put on a lot of weight in that time.

At my lowest my BMI was 14 and I was 35kg/5 st 7
I am now 48kg / 7 st 8 and BMI 19

I have lost 5 kg in the last month and I want to lose more.
I know I am a healthy weight but all I see is fat.
I don't know what to do.

I am not seeing a Dr or psychologist, and I never will about this as I do not trust them.

I just want to know how others did it without relaping

Re: I think I am relapsing

Being underweight can in and of itself cause us to have more symptoms and unhealthy behaviors. Have you ever read the Keys Starvation Study? In it, healthy men were made to lose a lot of weight. When they were underweight they had symptoms that many anorexics have including thoughts that they were fat.
Food is important medicine for healthy thinking.
