    Calories in/calories out is really a myth. Get some pictures taken of you. At your height and weight you are TINY. you just don't see it. 10 pounds is not a bunch of weight. LOL I want you to quit obsessing over your weight and it you gain a bit accept it. You really are too thin.

    Ani - listen to grammy, lol.
    But seriously....125lbs for your height is probably not healthy. I am 5'5 and I will be happy at 135.
    My sis is 5'7 and at 135lbs. she looked gaunt and unhealthy.

    Ani- as another point of reference, I'm 5" 3 3/4" (need that 3/4" lol). I'm small-framed and now weigh 122. Even I look thin in this weight range. You're so much taller than me!
    Another good thing about P3 foods is that so many of them help to increase serotonin levels, which helps your mood and impacts how you feel better about your appearance. Make sure you don't cut back on eating P3 foods to try to stabilize at a too low of a weight, because the decrease in serotonin may contribute to having an inaccurate view of your body.
    For now, let your body stabilize where it wants to - your brain may need a little more time to catch up to recognizing how thin you really are.

    But isn't there kind of a general number of calories that is healthy for a woman to take in. I mean i have a bad habit of underestimating how many calories I'm actually eating and if i don't keep track of them i tend to eat more than i need. But at the same time counting calories can be stressful and sometimes I'm afraid of just going crazy and eating everything in sight. I really have to pray about it especially now that I'm moving to a new place away from my friends and family i'm afraid of losing myself. I just always wish i was one of those people with a super high metabolism that could eat whatever i want and never gain an ounce but even more than that i have to keep reminding myself that food isn't going to make me happy or at peace, sometimes its just so hard to remember. Thank you for your replies and suggestions, they definitely don't make me feel fat!

    There is no need to count and stress about calories. Just continue to choose healthy foods and eat when you're hungry (not when you're bored/emotional/etc.). You will be full - no need to overeat!
    Be sure to keep drinking water. Limit "bad" carbs - don't even keep them in your house! Choose whole grains over processed, etc.
    Food doesn't need to be so complicated. Read labels and healthy choices can become instinctual.

    Cool

    [QUOTE=Kar;836957]Ani -

    Exactly! Especially increasing your fat intake (butter, ghee, coconut oil, avocados etc) will help satiate your appetite.

    I would be careful on the grains, however. There's a lot of discussion about grains in any form, but especially wheat, being quite detrimental to health. A lot of folk (me included) run into problems when we include wheat in our diets, so about 2yrs.ago I completely gave up all starchy food (grains, rice, pasta, potatoes, etc). It's not as hard as you think, and I assure you I am NOT the most strong-willed or disciplined person around, lol. You have to find what really works for you, but I know if I start eating grains or starchy food, it triggers cravings for even more, spikes my blood sugar and basically just messes with my whole body.

    I'm having to relearn what 'genuine' hunger is as opposed to just an 'empty' feeling (which is good), or my mind/body simply saying I want something crunchy, or salty or sweet - most of the time it stems from boredom or anxiety or emotional stress. I tend to want to comfort myself by eating something I can't anymore - when I realize it's just that - feelings or stress or boredom and not genuine hunger, then it's a heck of a lot easier to get a handle on it.

    I hope you'll be able to get a clear picture of what you really look like and that you'll feel more comfortable inside your body, and not have to feel like your at war with it.
