midnightdeirdre Posted August 7, 2017 Share Posted August 7, 2017 Every summer for the past 4-5 years I've tried eating healthier and exercising more to get down to my dream weight; the closest I ever got within those summers was 117 lbs. Long story short the past 2 months I mistook some medications and ended up with severe nausea. (Nausea and weakness so bad I almost had to be hospitalized.) Now I'm happily at 108 lbs. (I love the autumn/Christmas season, so I've always tried to get in great shape over the summer for that time of the year.) I mean, 2 months of severe nausea with zero exercise and boom, I'm at my dream weight! But every summer for the past 4-5 years I ran/power-walked on the treadmill, did yoga, and I only managed to get down to 117? Since I lost it so quickly I'm afraid that I will gain it back so quickly as well. I'm also a little worried that I"ll eventually develop an eating disorder as a result. (Obviously, I don't want that to happen.) But once I got my meds straightened out (and have followed some healthy tips that I read in Alicia Silverstone's book The Kind Diet---i.e., stop eating once I feel full, don't eat 3 hours before bedtime) I seem to be keeping it off fine. Thanks for reading; tips/feedback greatly appreciated! Link to comment
