oh wow so you pretty much still don't eat much food just liquids, is that safe? Why do you fear gaining weight?, if your 5'9 and 137 you must be VERY thin. so are you recovering from anorexia or anemia? I have anorexia, had it for about 2 years. i have relapesed pretty bad about 4 times. how do you relaps? what happens to you? the bloating only lasted a couple of weeks for me i still get it now and then but nothing like before, its good that your not swollen from you legs that is showing improvement. iam back in recovery since two months ago i lost 5 pounds since my first post i relapsed and that's how i lost them so pretty much iam back in recovery since that day starting over, so how much weight do you want to loose now? are you currently staying in a hospital?
