I am looking for help on which way to proceed.
A story of me thus far in a nutshell.
From aged 13yrs disordered eating.
From aged 14yrs anorexia (weight loss but not boney) till 24yrs Wish I was that weight now! Ate an apple, or 2 red frog lollies per day. Could not get out of sunday lunch so I fed most to the dog. 4 hours of exercise per day and that was on top of my gymnastics.
26 yrs went to uni and slipped into anorexia again.
29 lived in Sydney and started loosing weight again by using protein powders and food it was awesome! 4-5kg every 2 weeks. But also minimum 2hours of exercise on top of what I was doing at work. I had a very busy job with lots of walking 8 hours.
31 got ill no longer could I work or do exercise. Gained weight hand over fist.
Tried protein powders without exercise it hasn't worked.
Found out a way through trial and error that I can do a very light work out modified.
I have a huge amount of fat on my body even when I was anorexic. My body loves to hang onto fat! I am so lost as how to proceed.
I want to loose weight more importantly fat! But if being anorexic did me no favours both in health or fat loss what do I do?? I have a non existent metabolism. All my boyfriends previous to my husband said I eat like a bird. I have others say the same thing like my friends and aquaitences that don't know me. My friend got sick at the same time as me. We both did not eat for the week. His weight loss 5kg mine 0.5kg. My husband and I got sick at the same time he lost 5kg in one week I lost nothing this time.
Oh and a dieticians diet have me loose 5kgs then had me plateau for one month and then I started climbing back up. He wanted to know what I was doing wrong I said Im following your advise to the letter!!
Weight watchers had me go up not down.
Im really really confused. I have thought about body building. something has got to give.
I have been tested for PCOS and that's not it. Next step to go get a throughra check up!! Bloods hormones etc. Anything that's responsible for not having a metabolism and hormones or whatever.
I am so lost!!!!!!!! its not funny. for me calories in and out does not equal weight loss!!!!!! Its not simple for me. I know there has to be someone else out there like me. Im about to be asked to be tested for the caveman gene. Im lost as to what it can be.
Im sick of looking like this and having the fat Anyone else have a journey similar to mine? What helped you? Even if you know of any testing I should get.
right now I have figured out I can do 5 burpies, 5 star jumps, jog one to two laps of the backyard, 9 push ups, and much to my dismay 9 sit ups. My stomach muscles simply aren't capable of more at this stage. ( I am used to doing a hundred each day) I was a gym junkie.
Thank you in advance.
