wow! These post actually made me cry! This is all so new to me. I am so messed up with food and body image its unreal! I feel like a freak! I have always been overweight then when i started to get sick I lost 80 plus ponds in 4 months. Diagnosed this april and weight still coming off! I have lost to date 106 pounds. My body image is wacked out....everyone telling me wow you look so great, you are so thin...blah blah blah well of course I like to hear that but then there is the food depression ....of course I loved food that is how I was so over weight.
Now I have no appetite it never came back! I am afraid of food! I have to be reminded by my family to eat regularly. I have sad feelings when there is so much I can not eat. I try to stay thankful for just being alive but it is such a hard adjustment. Food is totally my enemy no doubt about it. I hope that with time I will mentally adjust my relationship with food to stave off malnutrition and exhaustion. Many many times I just wish I could just quit eating. I love being thin but I don't want to be so sick and in pain!
