I know this question may seem silly, and I've talked about it a lot in the chats... but I'm still having a lot of issues with this.
My goal for the past year in a half has been to get up to at least 125, but I'm having the worst time putting on weight & keeping it on my body. I've always had a fast metabolism, but lately I'm having issues with consuming food. As embarrassing as it is, I often have a lot of trouble reminding myself to eat. I'll go half the day without eating, and only realize that I haven't eaten once I start to feel weak and get a headache. When I do remember to eat, I can only consume a small amount before I start to feel sick. I can no longer get pleasure from food and I see it as simply a means of survival. I've been like this for a year, now. When I asked my doctor about it, she said that it must be linked to depression .
The strange thing is, I feel like I've been doing better in my eating. I even had McDonalds last night & ate every last bite. Still, this morning when I stepped on the scale I was shocked to see that I went down from 115 to 109. The sad part is, it's really starting to get to me to the point of where I'm constantly worrying & getting anxiety over it. I'm tired of hearing smart remarks from random women. I'm also tired of hearing my boyfriend complain that I can't accomplish goals. He's actually being especially irritating about it. He makes me get on a scale, and will lecture and nag me if he sees that I haven't put on any weight. We've actually had a lot of fights over this. It's also making me have really bad self esteem.
Unfortunately for me, this country puts so much attention on weight loss. I think people tend to ignore those of us who are trying to put weight on, and tend to roll their eyes at us. It's especially bad for woman with this problem.
So, anyway, I just wanted to know if anyone had any tips on how to revive appetites, and some healthy food ideas for weight gain. Work out tips for putting on muscle are also appreciated. Someone told me that milk makes you fat real fast. I've tried to drink glasses of whole milk, but I just find it so gross. I can't stand it, so I've been chugging it down really fast. Same goes for protein shakes. I also tend to hate anything fried.
