Bulimic Weight Loss

Erin - April 21

I'm only 7 wks but lost 4lbs this month. I have been bulimic for several years and oddly enough the news of my pregnancy has stopped all urges to binge and purge. I've been eating really healthy and know that I was never over weight just perceived myself that way. Is this my metabolism balancing out or could something be wrong? When should I worry if I haven't started to gain? I currently weigh 125 lbs and am 5' 6

Its ok to lose weight (small amounts) especially during the first trimester. I wouldn't worry. Just talk to your doctor. Good for you for overcoming you illness.

I am 15 weeks and have lost a little over 10 pounds from all day sickness. My doctor said nothing to worry about yet as long as I start gaining later on. Good job on overcoming bulemia. It is a very hard cycle to break. Hope all goes well for you.

it is bad for baby or for you. If you are not getting enought nutrition then your baby will not be getting it ether. Your body will work hard to provide your baby with the best milk that it can, after it has used up your avalible energy reserves it will start using nutrients from your body that you nead. EG from your bones and musles, this can cause permanant dammage. Also you may find that your milk will dry up to protect your body.
