First off, let me just state that I am a 29 year old female. I used to weigh almost 240 pounds. I started eating healthier about 7 or 8 months ago. I started to lose weight because of this. Obviously, it made me feel healthier, which made me happier. Within the past 2 or 3 months, I've started to restrict what I eat more and more. It's like unless I feel hungry, I don't feel in control, and I fear that I'll gain weight back. No one I'm close to knows I'm doing this because, unfortunately, I don't want to tell them because they will want me to stop. But I have it in my head that if I eat my stomach will hurt, which it does, and that it will be unhealthy for me. I'm sure my stomach hurting is all psychological. I have no other health problems, that I'm aware of, that would make my stomach hurt when I eat. What should I do?View Thread
