Am I crazy?

Postby benedicte » Mon Dec 01, 2008 5:50 pm

I've always been very skinny and my mum used to be worried as she always thought I was anorexic, which was completely wrong.

However since I went to live for 4 months two years ago in Canada I started to put on weight and in two years I got 10kg!

Even if I am not overweight I do not feel good in my body right now.

my weight is 56kg and for 160cm. Two years ago my weight was 46kg. I don't do any sport whereas before I was doing twice a week aerobic.

do you think it is crzay that I want to lose on weight?

I think only you can decide what is right for you. If it falls in the heathy weight range then i think its ok to lose some weight but you dont want to be under weight as this can cause health problems. Maybe you should discuss your weight with your doctor

I don't think you are crazy at all for wanting to lose weight. I'm the same height as you, and approaching your weight (I'm around 53 or 54 kg now, and gaining - I was 48.5 kg about 18 months ago). I completely understand how you feel. Myself, I get so uncomfortable in my body at times that I can't sit still or get to sleep at night!

But yeah, I understand that you cop attitude from people when you tell them you want/need to lose weight when you are still at a healthy BMI :roll: It's not much fun! You have a right to feel happy and healthy, and if losing weight is what you need to do, then go for it!!! Don't worry about what other's say :wink:

thank you for your support.

I don't really say to people that I want to lose weight, because yeah, as soon as your are not very big people don't understand. I want to stay healthy and it's just about few kg.

Thanks for your messages ;-)

I admire people who challenge themselve and loose weight to their reach goal and feel better

If you are healthy and you dont try to avoid to eating than its okay. Find some signs of anorexic in google and see if you match any of them.
