Just wondering if this community is dead...? I have such a hard time in a lot of the other ones. Everyone seems to be so young..

How many people still post to this? How many still read it..?

One thing I have to admit- I sometimes feel like a 14yo partially, and probably mostly, because of my ED.

I'm Erica, 29, California.

medication and weight gain
I have ADD Bipolar disorder and I also suffer with depressions.

I have also had issues with eating disorders as well but not lately.

For the past year and a half to two years I have been taking 225mg of effexor and 40 milligrams of Adderal daily which have also aided me in losing about 20 lbs.

Recently the doctor has changed this because he found that together these have caused substantial weight loss.

I had been out of my meds for a month when I saw the doc and by then had gained 15-20 lbs going from my usual 125 lbs to 140!

Now the new mads he has given me have proved to cause even MORE fucking weight gain: Celexa, Seroquel and then I am on my regular 40 milligrams of Adderal and also now I will be taking Yaz.

What are your experiances with Celexa, Seroquel and Yaz? Have you gained weight on these? I have a friend who takes Seroquel and she doesn't experience any weight gain but I think she might be just weird because the general studies I have found say most people gain up to twenty lbs in the first 4 months on it.

I am really freaking out because I want to drop off this damn 20lbs QUICK and I will do this unhealthily if I have to. My next photo shoot is on the 5th and I need to be in the best shape I can be obviously because my livelihood depends on my looks being a model and running a porn site and all.

Any tips or tricks on how to beat the bulge on psychiatric meds?

Struggling today. Really, really in binge mode. Managed to fight it so far. But struggling. It's all I can think of. :( Help.

Today I feel like I could quite happily curl up in a ball and die. We found out on Friday on of our friends had died in the night. He had a dodgy ticker, but he'd been out of hopsital for a while... he was 27 ... staying over at his best mate's ... his best mate found him on the sofa in the morning. Fuckin horrific. So we were all out on Friday and Saturday night drinking and dancing - his favourite hobbies!! Only problem was that I go very drunk - and ate a massive portion of cheesy chips, and doner meat. Then yesterday I though "screw it, you're already fat" and had chicken with bacon, cheese and bbq sauce, a jacket potato with cottage cheese, loads of veg, gravy ... ice-cream, maple syrup and papaya.... then MORE ice-cream.

Today, I feel like I could happily die. My skin has been stretched out so much over my fat ball of a belly that it's very tender and actually hurts. My head is killing me and I didn't sleep well. Everything sucks!! :(

Meh. I did my Race for Life, 3 miles in about 35mins. Not bad. but then I went home and had a big bowl of lentils, cabbage, green beans, cauliflower and broccoli, 3 fruit and oat biscuits, a fruit corner, and 4 mini chocolates. What a loser. I've put on a lb. ARGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

Well, I've lost another lb. Just the one. But it's better than gaining one! Yesterday I had a bit of tinned grapefruit, then nothing really all day until the evening when I had 2 hardboiled egg whites and a bit of cucumber. I was battling with myself over whether to have some lentils and cabbage, but it was late and I was tired so I just went to bed. Phew. So far today I've just had my appetite-suppressing probiotic yogurt drink, my vitamins, 2 x bladderwrack tablets and 4 squares of ex-lax chocolate. So far so good. Tonight I am doing my 5k run for charity. I hope I don't pass out. ;oP

Well - I've lost 5lbs. In a week. Not great, but not too bad, considering J is over and last time he was here I put on nearly a stone! Last night H and J had pizza and I had; two oatcakes, half a cucumber, two tomatoes and two hardboiled egg whites. Not great, but I had to have something.

Today, so far, I have had an appetite-suppressing, probiotic yogurt drink, a small bowl of grapefruit (about 5 sections) and 6 squares of ex-lax chocolate. I am about to have my 3rd coffee, and also had a glass of apple juice... I have also got some sugar-free squash. I'm hoping I can go the rest of today without anything else. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

I am looking for people interested in joining the moms_with_eds community. If you are a mother & have an eating disorder, we would love to have you as a member. Our community is pro-recovery, so if you are "pro-ana," the community is probably nor for you. Hope to see you there. :o)

It seems like this community is sort of slowing down...
Just thought, for those of you still active, you might like my ED-support community:


I would say the majority of our members are over 21.

Had about 1200 calories yesterday. My best friend was in town so we went out to drink. I ate very little all day, but then drank quite a lot. Didn't come home til 3am-ish. I've a slight headache--not much of a hangover, thanking-my-lucky-stars!

Had about 600 cals today. Urgh. Walked in the afternoon after watching my football team lose a miserable game. I told myself I wouldn't watch the NFL this year!! But I also tell myself not to go over 800 calories in a day.

Very thirsty now.

Tomorrow. 1.5 hr. walk in the morning, 1.5-2 hr. walk in the evening. A poached egg on toast with tomato. Cottage cheese and tomato with toast. Soy patty with rice and lettuce. ~400 calories. Will try to get some strength training back into my routine. And what happened to the sit-ups I was doing? Hmmm...

Current Mood: thirsty

Still lurking around here
Okay, so I know nobody's really posting much here anyway, but I'll go ahead and say a few things.

First off, I messed up a couple times this week. I could've been really awful with myself and punished myself, but I didn't. I just looked at the situation, saw what was happening, and made some adjustments.

Some...emotional issues were happening this week. Not that great of an excuse. Nonetheless, they crept up on me and I was sort of side-swiped. Thought a cheese sandwich would solve my problems! HA!

The one positive thing this past week is that I got back into doing my cardio, which I was bailing out of for a while there.

Well, I hope to "meet" some other members of this community someday. Ciao for now.

Current Mood: kinda crook in the belly

Hi, I'm new to lj. I don't remember if I posted already to this community. Anyway, 36 with ednos. Friend me and I'll friend you back. Need support and encouragement. Will offer the same back.

I'm in my fourth week of a six-week plan to lose 25 lbs. I've had a lot of setbacks in the past few weeks. I'm doing pretty good this week, though, and reading others' posts is encouraging.

Hope to get to know you soon.

hey everyone...

so i know im not too active in these communities these days but my last semester of college takes up a lot of time.... no excuse though b/c food and weight is on my mind 24/7.. i'm going to do it.. i've let myself slip... They put cookie out at my job everyday and I eat them, I've been in transition between apartments so i use it as an excuse to eat out, I let my mom feed me, I am getting my period again so that makes me want to eat... ITS AWEFUL!!! I"M FULL OF EXCUSES THAT ARE NOT JUSTIFIED!! I'M FAILING AND GETTING HUUUUGE!!! Almost my highest weight EVER....

new plan... I do move into my new place this week, and live with my new roomates, so im going to make myself the 'heathly, in shape' roommate who doesnt really eat much but looks great... It'll be great b/c they work 9-5pm and i can easily say i ate before they got home or something.. I was the athletic, in shape one last year and then all summer ive been a F*ck up.. but this year im gonna be the in shape one again..

I have a health food store 3 blocks from my new house and it is the ONLY place I will let myself buy anything... just veggies, occasionally fruit and all my vitamins...

Im not going to fight with myself for the rest of my life, IM going to just make it happen... get the body I want and keep it... I want not eating and being skinny to become a natural habit not something im constantly working at...

I can do this.. I have to.. this is my last chance.. I blew it this summer.. looking shitty in a bathing suit... but I'm going LA in a month and I better see some improvement by then!!!

Thanks for the support!! Love to all of you!! Stay strong!!

eating disorder type: 8th grade through sophomore year of high school I has diagnosed as anorexia/bulimic/exercise OC...but now I'm healthier, not as compulsive...just...conscious of my weight? Or, according to my mom/doctor/etc, "Once an anorexic, always an anorexic."
height: 5'6"
current weight: 105
highest weight: 130 ("recovering" from bulimia, struggling to break the binge cycle)
lowest weight: 90
short term goal weight: 100
long term goal weight: 90
anything interesting about yourself: um...sometimes I like to play America's Next Top Model with my best friend? Okay maybe that's not interesting so much as slightly pathetic...but at least it explains the pics...
