I Am Scared of Gaining Weight

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 169 People

    I have this irrational fear of gaining weight

    and/or getting fat. I felt I was fat so I started working out a lot and I'm scared that one day I'll wake up and I'll be fat. That probably explains my obsession with healthy food and working out.

    I always end up eating too much

    or not enough. I constantly go back and forth with this issue and I'm scared of gaining weight. I try and exercise a lot but most times I find myself eating badly ): I just don't want to gain any more weight.

    Just Recently...

    I've always weighed under 100lbs, but on my 18th birthday I found out that I weighed in at 100. I freaked. My whole life I've never worried about what I eat, but when I found out I had reached a three-digit weight, it's all I can think about. I know 100lbs doesn't sound...

    Ugh, I've gained like 10

    or 15 pounds. I feel so sick with myself. I need to stop eating junk food. I freaked out and starved for like a week this month. I'm eating okay now.

    Fighting To Deal With Weight Gain Due To Phych Meds

    In the last few years I have lost 100 lbs with a food plan and exercise.  I was able to keep it off until I had to get off Topomax one of my mood stabilizers.  One of the side effects is it helps control the craving for carbs.  The topomax was clouding my thinking I couldn't...

    I ate too much today.

    I had a few chocolate chips, 4 sliced of pizza, Chinese food, two bags of pretzels, and a soda. Ugh. I stepped on the scale and I'm at 139, instead of 135! I hate this. I'm so fat ~_~ I need to start working out again and actually lose weight - at least 20 pounds.
