HAART or Anxiety?
« on: April 13, 2008, 06:48:55 PM »
Appetite is OUT OF CONTROL.  My appetite is already high from my active lifestyle but damn gurl, do I have tapeworm?
I think may be undetectable at this point too.  I do notice sometimes I get too stressed and don't eat as much Mon-Wed then Thurs-Sunday it's out of control.  Maybe it's a combination of both?  Not putting on any weight yet...so I hope to go from 120 to 130 (goal weight) soon. :)

I just read this and just previously I read a post from someone in the women's forum who bought a bikini.  I'm reviving David's thought-I need another period of wasting.  Of course, now that I'm craving brownies, any ideas about losing weight are obsolete at this point.

I know exactly what your going through. After I started on medication, I couldn't get enough food. It will settle down though. Your body is requiring nourishment. And. I think you probably have a pretty high metabolism right now.

I loaded on over 35 pounds. ( but I really needed to, as I had wasted away so much weight the year prior. But, It will subside and you will reach your goal. I've been maintaining the same weight now ( 172 pounds) for a few years now. Was as low as 140, and as high as 182. I still have a phenomenal appetite, I just watch a little more closely what I shovel in my mouth !!

Take care----Ray
