But I really need to gain weight! I'm coing up on a year and I still have people (including my folks) wondering if I'm still "sick". Not just because of that but, I want to look how I feel which is HEALTHY. I just don't look like it right now and it makes me sad.
Hang in there!!! it's a process for sure. before i had DS - i had started and was in recovery but didnt' really look like it to my friends and family. Give yourself time to gain weight in a Healthy way - so you don't freak out and feel like crap about it - so you know - hey i did it eating healthy food and this is the weight my body wants me at. You can add extra healthy snacks to your diet - like celery wit p/b and raisins, or an extra snack of hummas and pita. slip a little extra 200 to 300 calories in your diet and you'll SLOWLY gain until your body platues and feels at a norm. I totally understand being afraid to - and afraid to go over board - which is why i suggested the extra snack - it's nothing big but over time will give you what you need to be at what your body feels is healty.
