Please…No

So I’m not too sure how to put this delicately…so bear with me…

I’m NOT anorexic.

I eat between 1400-1500 calories a day. The amount that a doctor told me to eat. I am losing weight in a healthy manner. Eating right and exercise.

I am (still) getting emails from some people asking about “mia/ana-lifestyles.” These are the top three questions.

Q. How do you keep yourself from eating when you are starving?
A. I don’t. If I am starving, I eat. I eat healthy snack if I don’t feel like I can wait until my next meal. I manage my meals in a way that I eat 6 small meals a day, so rarely do I get that “starving” feeling.

Q. How many times a day do you purge?
A. Zero. The last time I threw up I had a stomach bug.

Q. What was your longest fast?
A. Four hours, I threatended my mom that if she didn’t get me something I wanted I would go on a hunger strike. I was 9. Other than that….no

So. Again. I am not anorexic. This is a blog for weight loss, yes, but it’s all about how I am losing weight in a healthy manner.

I have been keeping up with a 1% weight loss a week… right now that is a little under 2 pounds a week. When I hit 170ish… I”ll drop down to 1.5 pounds a week.

I know this is a sensitive subject, but I can’t (and won’t) tell anyone how to lose weight in an unhealthy way. I’m sorry I just won’t do it.

My best advice is to go seek medical help, or at least sit down and talk to someone who can help you get better.

I’m not trying to be mean about any of this…but I just wanted to say something… you know?

So, I hope I didn’t get anyone P.O’d

Ugh

Either I’ve been doing really bad or I’m starting to bloat for my period (sry guys)… I know it’s coming up soon… but the scale is reading 195… so I’ve gained a pound or bloating is on it’s way.

I added a picture from when I was weighing 220 (ish)…. I’m letting my camera charge and I’m going to upload a picture of me now at 195 (bloat I hope), wearing the same outfit.

The pants at the time were super tight in the waist (thus the lovehandles looking that bad, haha)…and the shirt was skin tight…. I literally had wet down the shirt and stretched it around the tv over night so it was looser… Haven’t worn it in a while, so we’ll see how that goes.

I’m kind of excited to see how they fit.

I’m also going to take a picture of the pants I wore ALL the time when I was weighing 245….and post that one as well…. so today is gonna be a picture takin day!!!!!

Just thought it would be interesting to see how different they fit.

Been sick :(

For the last week-ish I’ve been sick….yucky sick… now that I am feeling better I can get back to my cal counting…

These next two weigh-ins are going to be tough I think…. I have my weigh-in tomorrow and I know that I did not lose any weight this past week, I’ve been more focused on getting myself feeling better….and next weeks weigh in I should be on my period, so I’m sure I’ll be really bloated (yuck)…. so I won’t have a good weigh in until the following week…. I’ll post whats up in my calender.

Just wanted to do a quick update.
