It’s called The Divorce Diet and I think every woman getting divorced gets on it unintentionally. 

It’s stress, your divorce, your emotions. Hang in there. It’s great you started exercising again, just try to remember to eat. It will get better.

JazzyGirl85:  I disagree with the pp. If you realy don’t see the wight loss when you look in a mirror, I advise you to seek medical attention.

The so-called “Divorce Diet” does not include a disconnection with reality.

julies1949:  Yep–this.

To the OP–not sure if this is a thinly guised attempt at humblebragging about your size or if you are genuinely concerned because pounds are literally melting away and your new wardobe is dropping off you within weeks and you see no difference. As someone who’s been in recovery for an eating disorder for years, if it’s the latter, you need to seek the counsel of a medical professional.

I eat improperly when I’m under stress and have unwantedly lost weight. Seeing a therapist helps me when I’m going through it. Hope you are able to find some relief and joy in your life soon!

JazzyGirl85:  I am sure Mrs Y meant to be helpful. There have been too many posts lately from Bees throwing their height(5’9) and weight (97 lbs) into totally irrelevant threads.

Nobody wants to be told there is something wrong with them, but speaking as a Registered Nurse, most problems are easier to deal with if treatment starts early.

If you don’t see the difference, then I urge you to seek help asap. Sometimes our mothers are right.

JazzyGirl85:  As someone who’s struggled for years with eating disorders as well. I can see some signs of a potential eating disorder that could be cropping up or too much stress in your life.  Maybe you do need to seek some help.  If not medical, maybe therapy?  Because if you’re losing weight so rapidly clothes are falling off, then you’re losing weight too quickly and not eating enough and that’s not healthy.

It can be a sign of something called body dysmorphic disorder, which I had (have) myself. I don’t believe you ever get rid of it, it just sort of goes into remission!

I would say the best thing to do is compare photos – they often show things you can’t see looking in the mirror, as you’ll be able to take the difference with the 2 photos right next to each other.

I would also definitely speak to someone about stress – It can really help. Something like Cognitive Behavioural Therapy would be an option. It’s not like the traditional view of therapy, it’s all about teaching you how to handle emotionally difficult situations.x

When my SO and I broke up, I lost weight. My friends and our mutual friends noticed, but I couldn’t tell. The scale told me they were right, but I only made my jeans a wee bit more loose. My tops and stuff looked the same
