Okay, so my anxiety began (I should say health anxiety) after I crashed my body from working out a lot and being over caffeinated. And that weekend, I had so many things going on, a dance, my sister's birthday, my birthday, went to the gym a lot after, etc. So I can see the problem there. My goal was never to drop weight, just to get toned. Anyway, I was still that person who ate just to have something to do. I didn't eat a handful of gluten free chips, I ate the bag. But now, what with my fear of getting sick, I eat a small breakfast, something quick for lunch, and something small for dinner. If I eat too much, my stomach feels full (or maybe it even doesn't and I just think it does) and if I eat too much, I feel uncomfortable and can't stop worrying. Still, I am not at an unhealthy weight. The ideal body weight of someone with a height of 5, 8 is 130-150 pounds and I'm 136. But my scale messes up so I don't know how accurate that is. I repeat, I was usually the person who loved food, even when having a fear of being sick, I still ate what I wanted. And my brother, who is a nurse, does not believe I have a medical issue. I also cut out bread which is a big calorie addition, but not because of weight, but because I have a slight intolerance to gluten. So is this out of the realm of normal? This all started in June, so it isn't as if I've dropped 28 pounds in a single month.
