Why is the fitness/weight loss community not freaking out over Nicole Polizzi (Snookie)? Look at her. She’s lost well over 40 pounds and is happily gaining muscles and promoting a healthy image and a healthy lifestyle. ALL of these fitness photos of her are from AFTER she had her baby and oooohhh she’s looking fine. Definitely an inspiration to me.

I’m sorry if you guys are tired of photosets like these from me, but I personally will never get tired of celebrating my success in returning to a weight that is healthy for ME. 

I often get questions about what happened and whether I had an eating disorder. I did not. I do, however, live with panic disorder, and for a long time the only dose of medication that was strong enough to stop the anxiety from destroying my life ended up hurting me in a completely different way. I lost my appetite entirely and even the best foods tasted like sawdust to me. I didn’t eat nearly enough. It was a downward spiral all winter and by December, I was almost medically underweight, and definitely below what was healthy for MY body. I felt tired and lightheaded constantly, was often irritable, almost passed out every time I stood up, and just generally felt like complete crap.

That month, I made a vow to myself that I was going to get healthy again and take back my life. I wanted to have energy to do things again! And I wanted to feel as strong as I used to. I ran a 5k a year ago. I lifted weights, I had endurance, I felt tough and badass. And then anxiety creeped in and threw me off course entirely. 

Do I regret going on the medication? Absolutely not. It saved me. It allowed me to function as a normal person and not have crippling panic attacks several times per day. What I do regret is not monitoring myself more and talking to my doctor about the side effects. If I had taken more preventative measures, my weight loss might not have gone as far as it did. Please don’t be scared to take medication if you need it. Please DO talk to your doctor right away if you start noticing side effects.

Anyway, this is getting long. I guess I just wanted to say that I did it. I am much healthier and happier than I was then. I’m still on the same dose of medication, but I’m being more careful now. And in monitoring myself and making special effort to eat more often, my appetite has returned to almost what it was before. I feel a thousand times better.

Weight loss is not synonymous with health. Take care of yourselves, guys. 

This is exactly what I’m going through currently and am working my way to recovering.

when I was on anxiety medicine, it did the same exact thing to me! The thought of eating anything made me sick to my stomach, i had to juice constantly to get enough nutrients or even make it to 1000 kcals a day.

i know i need to be medicated but i’m so scared that while my anxiety will be controlled, my quality of life will decline :c ugh i’m so conflicted

Hope you guys understand my level of commitment to the weight loss community when I post this before pic, I didnt even know I had them anymore so it was quite weird seeing my old body like that. The first pic was 3 years ago, 4 months before I decided to change my lifestyle and lose the weight and the second pic is me now. 
I know that my after body ain’t perfect but its getting better and I love it would do it all again to get to the point where I am today. I’m nervous about posting this but if one person likes it and one person gets motivated or inspired I’m more than happy to share this personal picture.
I’m 5’2”. :)
