Hi there, so I haven't been here for well over a year. Basically, I got anorexia, things spiralled out of control and lead to a BMI of 13.8 and a hospital admission. Yeah, I feel sort of embarrassed about that as I didn't listen to everyone here saying I had a problem. I'm much healthier now though and I have gained a little under 20lbs! I now weigh 93lbs and at 5'3" I am ready to stop gaining (even if my drs at CAMHS disagree LOL). Anyway, when I was weighed at my drs on Monday I was 92lbs. My Mum threw out our scales at home so I went to Boots (a UK chemist) and used their in-store scales on Saturday. These said I was 93lbs! That's a 1lb gain in 5 days! And I was wearing the same clothes so it isn't that. I really haven't been eating THAT much. Ok, maybe I overate a little as I averaged about 1300-1400 a day but I don't think that should have been reflected in a gain this big. And I only ate this much because last week I was having around 1000-1200 and LOST almost 5lbs. What's going on? Has anyone else had problems with the scales at Boots or have I really gained this much? Thanks everyone.
