Help me. I have had a problem with eating since I was 10. I would either binge or starve. I would starve because I couldn't eat without having anxiety, I mean I would eat and not be able to stop. I wouldn't even breathe! I had found that if I didn't start eating, I wouldn't have this anxiety. If I didn't start, then I wouldn't have to not stop. Well, over the years I have been overweight and normal weight. Normal weight would come with anorexia. I have been battling with this for so long, I can't fix it. I just had a baby in January and am breastfeeding. I had a hard time with the weight gain but knew it was for my baby, so I quit weighing myself everyday. I have been able to go 7 months after my baby was born feeling rather relaxed about eating. But now all of a sudden, I am feeling those old urges again. I can't stop eating once I start, I want to weight myself everyday, though I make myself not. I can't starve myself because I am breastfeeding, and my baby needs me to eat well. I was on prozac and it helped, but I don't want to take anything while I am breastfeeding. I used to take concerta, prozac and PTU for my thyroid. I cut back to just the PTU. I am trying to hold off for 5 more months before starting any more meds. Any advice? I seem to begin to have these problems when I start trying to get in shape or lose weight. If I don't try to get in shape or lose weight, I stay chunky. No matter how thin I have ever been, it's never been thin enough.
