I would much like to hear if someone with illness experiencing heavy weight-loss have regained their weight and how long it took and how they might have done it.
I went from 85 to 65 very rapidly and although this is over one year ago now and feeling much better fysically I am still looking like a walking skeleton...
I went from 138 lbs to 124 lbs in a few weeks when my Lyme symptoms started.
I was skinny and my muscles were all loose - couldn’t flex them. It was strange. I also lost collagen so the backs of my hands and my feet look like a 70 year old.
That was April to June 2013.
I started treating in July 2014 and by dec I had gained a couple lbs and by summer 2015 I was at 130.
I’m now 135 and that’s where I wasn’t to stay.
My hands and feet still look awful
