Hi. I'm not quite sure about this, but it's concerning me, and I would like thoughts (opinions?) on if this really should concern me overly much.
Within the last week I've been eating a strangely low amount of food, for me. I'm not cutting sweets, nor am I cutting anything else. -some of the only things I've eaten in a whole day would be a tube of mini m&ms, one peanut butter cookie, one fig newton twin pack, etc) If this helps I can list pretty much exactly what I've eaten starting from last Sunday. The most I have eaten so far was today (had I not gone to eat I probably wouldn't have eaten any more than half - not even half - of a left over sandwich for lunch at my work) and that was a bowl of soup almost a whole restaurant serving of fries and half of a quarter of a club sandwich -why does that sound like an incredible amount of food to me right now?-
I do get hungry, but like last night (I work third shift) even though I get something to eat and prepare it, I just don't feel like I want it.
I'm roughly 5'5" and 125 lbs -I don't own a scale so I'm not exactly sure on this point.
I couldn't say for sure if I am depressed or anything... I *feel* fairly fine, but an anniversary of a very close family friend's is coming up, so that may coincide with this all. But, like I said, I'm slightly concerned.
