  • Why do I weigh so much if my waist is small?

    According to my last weigh-in at the doctors, I would not meet the BMI standard of a healthy person. I'm very short so it concerned me when I saw the number on the scale. My doctor didn't give it any comment but it didn't make any sense to me. I have a flat stomach and I'm pear shaped with a decent chest size. To be fair, I really needed to pee when they weighed me but that shouldn't have been enough to tip the scales so high, right? I'm an active person but I wouldn't consider myself an athlete or anything so it's not like I'm super toned and muscular. I carry alot of muscle in my thighs but not enough to look buff. I eat a strict diet to the point where I've dipped too low in my calories too often (800ish, whoops!) and have been told to eat more. I would really wish to see a smaller number on the scale but am I being too paranoid?

  • Is this too much to eat in a day? Calorie guess?

    Lately I ve been premaking all my meals for the week so this type of diet is pretty consistent for me. 

    Breakfast- Olly nourishing smoothie powder with coconut milk 

    Lunch- spinach wrap (hummus, beans and veggies) apples with peanut butter 

    Snack- carrots, bell pepper and a boiled egg, coffee with cream 

    Dinner- quinoa with veggies and chickpeas with sauces depending on the day 

    I m not used to eating this much but since I m eating lower calorie foods I ve been needing to eat more often. Is eating this much okay for weight loss? I live a fairly active lifestyle. I m on my feet most of the day. I know I already asked this but I wanted to add that I have medical issues that keep me from eating meat. How many calories would you think this is? Should I be eating less to lose 10lbs by October? I used to have disordered eating so my instinct is to starve but I'm trying to lose weight in a healthy way now. I'm currently at the higher end of a healthy BMI for my age and height where I wish to be at the lower end but still in the healthy range. I try to exercise for a least a little bit a day but I'm sickly and I work 2 jobs so it doesn't always happen. Also, if anyone has suggestions about how to deal with 'bad' eating days without wanting to vomit it would help me out.
