How many calories is that? If that's "tons more than you normally eat" that's a little disconcerting.

If you feel you ate too much in the afternoon, it's probably because you didn't eat enough for breakfast/lunch/snack. Increase calories, eat more protein and you won't be ravenously out of control at the end of the day.

i agree with Glory87......when ever i don't eat well during breakfast or lunch I tend to eat way more.

There has been lots of talk on this website about eating too little. If you consider that eating too much, I think maybe you need to reasses how much you're eating and why you feel the need to eat so little... and also what it's going to do to your body.

Mmm you are ill so your body needs more fuel, and you managed to exercise!!! It´s not bad!!!
Try to focus on the positive! I know it´s hard, but you´re so strong (I´ve red your posts before and you´ve managed to loose so much) so stop it HERE!!! And stay OP for the rest of the day..

What do you mean, when you hit goal, you are going to slow down for the next 7 pounds? Are you going even lower than your 126 pound goal? How do you look and feel now? What does your doctor say about your goals? Does your doctor think you may be eating too little and working out too hard? What does your boyfriend say about this?

Even though this is a weight loss support website, there are so many other important things in addition to weight loss! Spending time with friends and loved ones and really just enjoying life. I hope you are able to fit those in around your strenuous work-out schedule.

Good luck with your goals - you are really close, and I hope you get there in the healthiest way possible.

I thought someone who is 5'7 the ideal weight for them is 135-139? that's medium built.

19.5 isn't really "ideal" its the minimum before you get start getting sick. If a person has to close to starve themselves to get there, it's not ideal. It seems you may issues with food and body image. Nobody says this to be mean or embrass you. I think you really need to take a step back and look at exactly what you are doing and what emotions you are going through right now. What started out as healthy weight loss can sometimes spin out of control. :hug:

I posted a little earlier today about my experience when I was in my 20s - I could get by on very little food too. And I got so thin - 115 at one point - people were asking me if I was sick. Trouble is, it's not sustainable and I ended up gaining back every ounce I had lost and then some. Over and over again until I got *old* ;) and would actually gain weight on what you are eating now (no bull). I know right now *old* seems like it will never happen - but it will, and you will still care whether you are fat or not. You could try getting just a few more calories now and increasing gradually until things level out? :hug:

that's me with a bmi of about 28.3 which is technically less than 2 points away from OBESE does this woman in size 8 jeans look almost OBESE?


BMI is not always a good indicator of what you should weigh.

my BMI level is just under 30 which is considered Obese but I don't feel like I looked Obese 2lbs ago?! I agree, BMI doesn't work for everybody.

I've been worried about you as well, for quite some time. If this is really how you think, that's even more worrisome.

I've noticed that you frequently post weekly losses of over 2 lbs. That's rapid weight loss and may not be healthy at this point in your journey.

I hope you are OK. Have you considered consulting a doctor or a nutritionist about your weight loss plan?
