Baby weight and anorexia

I am an 18 year old female who just recently had a beautiful baby boy. I gained alot of wieght with the pregnancy. Now, almost 7 months later, I still have about 30 to 35lbs. to lose. I am 5' even and weigh around 150lbs. I am also a recovered anorexic but I do still have lapses. The weight I am currently at is causing lapses and my husband is afraid of me being put in the hospital again from the disorder. I am moderatly active and consume one small meal a day yet I seem unable to lose this pregnancy weight. I am comfertable between 105 and 118lbs, but I fear I am nearing my previous ways of total starvation. I nearly died last time. I need some advice that will help me drop the weight fast so that I will be comfertable again. Please, someone, help me!!!

Hi Jamie,
Welcome to HCM.
You have mentioned that you are taking only one small meal a day. That is absolutely inadequate to sustain you and your growing child with breast milk.
What is urgently required is changing your attitude towards weight gain. Learn to be happy as you are and do not try any drastic measure to loose weight, which is absurd.
Eat well balanced food and stop worrying about weight gain. After pregnancy it is quite natural to put up some extra weight and no attempt should be made to correct it. Nature wants it to be that way and never try to go against the wishes of nature. Always have a firm belief that Nature knows what is best for you.
Wishing you all the best.
