Your girlfriend may be right about your weight. It adds up with what I was thinking. People with eating disorders may think they are fat when they are not, or be too concerned with a little added weight and go to unhealthy lengths to get rid of it. They can be perfectionists. They can think that the whole world revolves around removing some weight which isn't even always really there.
I understand you are skeptical of Chinese medicine. You can't really know how it works until you try it. Maybe you will.
I'm encouraged that you have made the psychologist appointment. You are also reaching out for help in seeking medical advice. Although I'm not personally a fan of Western medicine for your concerns, you are moving forward and realizing you need help and that's a good sign.
In case self-expression helps you, I'm posting a link to my self-expression threads.
If this link won't work, you can go to this forum and look for threads by me marked self-expression:
I've also cut out brocolli which I was eating heaps of every day sometimes 250-500g in a day. Pretty bad considering I may have a thyroid problem. It may have made it worse. I've switched to mixed vegetables.
I eat plenty as is evident by my corpulence, but I have occasionally restricted to silly hypocaloric levels and fasted. I've come round to the idea that eating too little sets off biochemical changes that make it hard to stay thin if you get there via that route. It is just annoying sometimes being overweight and one gets desperate. But I assure you I eat heaps and am definitely overweight, but maybe not by as much as I think - I may grant that. I am still unsure about adding significant carbohydrates to my diet.
Thank you once again for your continued support
