I hear you both!!!
I lost weight some time ago, within half a year about
12 kg, everybody was after me trying to convince me that "this" is kind of anorexia .....NO, it was NOT!! within all this I really got disappointed with some people I really liked because they did not stop analizing me in a very boring pseudo- scientific way.
I got my weight back, very slowly though. One of my friends started to gain weight constantly at the same time when I lost my kilos; in the end we looked like a "crasy couple" after a weird kind of bodymass- transformation ...LOL; she got tested for lyme lately because she has developed a "nervous tick" since then (and came out with positive IGg ); we both are in organic grown food; she is loosing her weight very slowly again since last year; she has a chronic sinusitis and was taking different meds for it which may also have fought lyme - so we think there is a connection.
Its said that there is kind of difference which type of calories led to ones overweight and if it is not due to high sugar / fat consuming, the body is in an easier position to burn the weight away again.
For me one thing is very clear: all of us, no matter if we gained or lost weight, are still and nevertheless beatiful!!! And that we are more than our bodies goes without saying as well as that we will keep on fighting and supporting one another!!!!
Hugs to all! dorit
