It's interesting that you bring up the weight issue. Every now and again, including today, I start get in a bit of panic over my weight. I weight 122 at the moment and according the the BMI chart I am at a healthy weight. However, when I go to my family they ask me if I have been eating, that I look too skinny. This is when I start to panic thoughts run through my head about my weight, I start thinking that there is something wrong with my health, that I have cancer, or some deathly disease. It gets VERY annoying. I eat everyday, fruits, vegetables, cookies, pizza (I don't eat that in one setting, but I do eat.) The thing is, this past 2 years I have been watching my diet, because if I eat too much I gain a whole lot of weight ( have had 2 kids so keeping the pounds off have not been easy up until now.), not only that but most of my family is overweight.
Honestly, I consider myself healthy, other than my hypochondria tendencies, but I have no pains, or any other symptom to indicate that I am sick. What is even weirder is that for so many years I have tried to become more healthier, tried to eat right, and keep a steady diet, but now that I am and not putting on weight, I am panicking. Normally my weight fluctuates from 120-130, which that is normal, but still my nerves get up when I think about it.
