woah...<br><br><br><br>
ive almost finished my noncounting day, i think ive done ok simply because ive gotten used to how much im meant to eat after all the years counting. but a friend wanted to show me a site about RMR and BRM etc etc.<br><br>
she calculated my calories and it said i only need 1,500 most days <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/no.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":no:"> for the last..well..year or so..even on sedentary days ive been trying to get to 1900.<br><br>
ive been overeating all this time <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/huh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":confused:"> and..maybe because its just gradual, ive been gradually gaining weight? which means if i keep eating what have been eating..eventually ill gain a lot? ?<br><br>
...how have i been so wrong for so long! (this is potentially gonna put the 'not counting' into a tailspin. but so far very proud)

taurus: STOP.<br><br><br><br>
i know it is scary<br><br>
but stop counting<br><br>
stop worrying about metabolic rates. they dont' take into account anything. they assume that you sit all day - or sleep all day, w/o walking to the kitchen, or going outside to get the newspaper... you won't be gaining weight by eating a normal amount. i weigh 115 at 5' and regularly consume 1900-2200 calories a day and i don't really gain weight. i fluctuate normally. worrying will only make you feel crazy and isn't healthy. eat when you're hungry, stop when you're full...

i don't want to sound mean, but are you seeing a therapist about your ED?<br><br><br><br>
i think you need to listen to a professional rather than your friends. a lot of the questions that you ask on VB need to be directed to a therapist who specializes in ED's. VB people AFAIK aren't qualified to help you.<br><br><br><br>

thanks for the response. and yes, i am. it was more that nobody else was around and you guys are wise and i wanted to know what was going on.<br><br>
its really weird, things were going great, not even tooooo phased by the noncounting thing but that 1500 fact just totally threw me.<br><br>
its like..the days where i felt like id eaten a bit less because of overeating the day before..id stilllll been eating more htan i should. and that id gotten used to eating too much and all this otehr stuff. i LIKED not countin, for the day that it lasted. i want to do it again today, but have this overwhelming feeling that i have to 'make up' for going over sooo many times.<br><br>
argh. i wont though. itsj ust...i dont know..the last few days , nonED wise have been messed up, maybe thats part of it. i couldn't sleep last night, so logic still isn't around today. i was literally lying in bed awake alll night. and i only just got up now , made coffee and thought 'fine..screw it. ill get up.' and that makes me feel even LESS in control. i like sleeping hours, i like to know im doing right by my body.<br><br>
ive eaten a lot of 'scary stuff' and not counted, but now im confused.<br><br>
except that ill just ignore it and keep going, i guess. it would just be nice to know ONE thing was for certain at this point in time, or something :/ i dont know..

taurus: calories aren't something that most people think about. try not to worry so much.
