Anonymous murmured: f, 17 At Corrinne I really need advice. So I've always been underweight but always healthy but since September im attending a professional dance school since my dream is to study at a certain, famous ballet academy in the states and my school works with this academy. So training became way rougher, so did my schedule and I lost even more weight and I cant seem to gain any. The thingis I havent had my period for about 4 month, the doctor gave me calorie shakes and saideven though its unlikelythat
I gain any since I have ballet classes for 7 hours a day and eat very healthy and he saif the fact that my body now has 2000 calories a day will make it eventually come back but its gonna take longer since im a lot underweight and gonna stay that way. when I asked how long he said depends I know it depends but I wanted to know from someone who experienced and I read you’ve struggled with anorexia I know its different since that’s an illnes but the consequences are often the same maybe you know from yourself or other girls? on Google it says depends and up to a year but those girls were almost at a healthy weight or only a little underweight but im a lot and im afraid its not gonna come back and that im not gonna be able to have kids im crying but its not my fault and my doctor cant say anything that sucks. Other than that im completely fine im one of the skinniest but also strongest its just that damn thing im crying again. btw I hope you recovered and greetings from italy
Heyy, so firstly i need to point out that i dont actually suffer from anorexia (however i do have a type of eating disorder!) and ive never been underweight either, but i do know a thing or two on the subject.
Your doing what you can to get back to a normal weight and thats good and also thats all you can do here. Just keep eating right and using those shakes your doctor gave you so you dont end up burning more calories than youre getting. Think about what foods you can add into your diet to help up calories, id recommend peanut butter! In fact any nuts and seeds - they are cook for you and high in calories! You can add oils into your food when cooking too, oh dark chocolate is a good one. Maybe look into protein bars too so you can have them when your at the dance school.
When it comes to how much time it will take to get back to a normal weight, that is down to the individual. It also depends how much effort you put in, much like people wanting to lose weight! You have to be aware of how much you are eating to make sure it is enough, and if its not trying your hardest to get those extra calories in too. Maybe look at eating every 3 hours things like that! Even making a meal plan might help! Whatever you do, you are trying your best! and you want to be a healthier weight and thats really all you can do.
You will get there, your period will return, sooner or later it will as long as you stick at it, your body is an incredible thing, it knows how to heal itself, you will get better and the side effect of being underweight will be lessened and eventually go away. You can do this :)
Ill be here if you need more support!
