Hiya so I am a female, 17 years old, 5 foot 6 inches and weight about 45KG. Over the past 8 months or so I have lost my period and about 5/6 KG due to healthy eating. Yes I have had a few anorexic thoughts in the past but now I’ve learnt to love myself and my body for all the wonderful things it can do. I am seeing a doctor and dietician about gaining weight but honestly they aren’t very nice and I know they’re trying to help me but they keep threatening me with an anorexia clinic and they think I’m anorexic. I am trying to gain weight and over the past week have been eating whatever I want which includes a lot of chocolate and sweets etc. It feels good to have this freedom however I have started to bloat a lot and I don’t think my weight is changing even though I think I’m gaining body fat. I’m starting to feel really full now and am wondering how long it will take to gain weight and my bloating to go down and distribute. I’m not on a meal plan right now (I’m seeing my dietician tomorrow) but I’m not sure if I’m eating too much- some days for snacks I can eat flapjacks, a whole white chocolate bar and other snacks. I also find myself thinking about food a lot - which is apparently normal. Any advice for bloating and fast weight gain? And how long do you think it will take to get my period back?
Thankyou for any advice xxx
