I got chubby by not watching what I ate and just eating whatever I wanted when I wanted.

This is gonna sound strange, but I feel like the reason I got fat the first time was because of my anorexic boyfriend. I was always skinny before. But when we would hang out in the evenings, I’d casually ask what he and his family had for supper, and he’d say he didn’t eat anything. I would have already eaten supper, but I would say well you have to eat something. Let’s go out and get you something to eat. But he didn’t want to. He’d say only if I ate something as well, cause he didn’t want to eat just himself. So I would say well I guess I could just get a small fries or something. And he would say no, you have to get a full meal so I don’t look fat. So I’d end up having a second supper, and not only that, but it’d be fast food, and also a larger meal than I normally would have eaten, even if it was my only supper. This happened ALL THE TIME. I only ended up losing that weight one year when he got really busy with school and I didn’t see him much anymore, and we broke up within a year after that. Then I was skinny again for a while. Then I gained really fast again when I went back to college. Gained about 30 pounds just in my first semester alone, from stress eating like crazy. Still trying to lose that weight from first year, a few years later now. I’m pretty good at maintaining my weight, but it’s so easy to gain a lot in a short period of time, and much harder to lose it.

People pointed out constantly in school and my house how I was chubby (even tho at that time my bmi was normal). I ended up being bulimic, and the habit of binging never left u.u. So when I started to "recover" I was still binging :((((

I entered an outpatient rehab program. That meant eating more and inevitable weight gain. But then a month after discharge I ended up in hospital with a large kidney stone and one heck of an infection. Long story short that meant 2mths of eating but not being able to move much at all.

That was a few months ago, but basically after fasting for 30 days, I decided to 'heal my relationship with food', but instead of healing, I just stuffed myself because I was so deprived!!! I gained all my fasting weight back and more while telling myself I was recovering. When, in truth, I knew all along that once I felt too fat I would slip back into purging and resticting anyways.


You didn't eat any food for 30 days?! Omg, how was it? I'm sorry to hear about your experience afterwards!

- sedentary job/lifestyle

- eating out of boredom

- using food as a coping mechanism

- never learning to cook, eating out for every meal

- BED causing me to stuff myself until it hurt, every single time I ate

 

2-3 times a week, I would order cheese and bacon breadsticks from this local pizza chain, with nacho cheese to dip it in, and I would eat an entire order of them to myself. One of the sticks alone had roughly 800-1000 calories. I was eating 5-6000 calories in one sitting, on a semi-regular basis. 

 

Basically I was disgusting, lacked self control, and used food to fill emotional voids.

Posted 08 March 2021 - 03:16 PM

I was depressed and suicidal for over half a year, July to January. I ate my feelings all day. Gained 44 lbs (20 kg) during that time. Fuck that. I'm so unstable when it comes to my weight. I'll lose a shit-ton of weight very fast, and then something happens and I get depressed and gain it all back. 

I usually walk a lot at work, but for the majority of that period, I was on a sick leave because so much shit was happening and I kept falling deeper and deeper into my depression. So I sat/laid on the couch almost all day, every day. The steps I walked were from the couch to the kitchen to get more snacks. I even slept on my couch most nights. 

 

I'm currently working on going back down the weight ladder.

I was a chubby kid because I just really liked to eat snacks. As an adult, I've gotten big again because I use food to cope with other chronic mental illness. (Unrelated to being a fat kid, my brain just doesn't know how to make the right juice)

I have been stress eating since very young age. I remember being like 7yo and binging a whole bread with toppings. I slowly developed bulimia nervosa and could manage my weight a little. I was still healthy weight at 17yo but after moving on my own I got to normal to obese bc of bulimia (my calories in was waaaay more than calories out due to purging or exercising). 2 years ago my ed slowly developed to ednos or atypical anorexia and have lost over 55lb's. I don't feel sick anymore, I mean when I was at my hw my knees would get intensive pain at all times, my lungs were very ill 24/7 and teeth has getting better. Hate me when I say ana is the best thing that ever happened to me but idrc.

I've always been fat my entire life, my family always bought unhealthy foods, that and with me developing depression at an early age caused me to emotionally eat since i was very young.

throughout high school i was always on the higher side of a normal bmi, and was pretty much always either binging and restricting which made me maintain. then i had a severe depressive episode, ate my feelings and gained weight bc of it. THEN i ad a severe MANIC episode, DRANK my feelings and gained weight bc of it. repeat. then i was hospitalized for it and the cycle stopped but i was already overweight (167). relapsed and got all the way down to my mofo lw since middle school (131). then i went on vacation and stopped caring and gained like 15 pounds. and here we are back to restricting. now im 147 fml :(

I had anorexia for a while and tried to recover but then took it to extremes and started eating too much. I have issues with food so when I stopped starving myself I started binging on literally everything. Everyone wanted me to gain weight and part of my initial recovery was to not weight myself so..I didn't realise until it was too late. I was diagnosed with BED and then it became almost an addiction. I would eat to feel better and then just hate myself after. I wasn't happy with how much I gained in such a short time so Im now trying to fix things. The last diagnosis I got from a doctor was atypical anorexia b/p subtype bc im still a much higher bmi. 

Sorry that was more than you asked for lmao but yeah...my body's been through some shit haha

Binging mostly. Overeating in various forms. It hasn't been significant but it's still annoying.
