    Hey y'all, so I have this awful issue with constipation despite high restricting. It drives me insane that I can never get a weight that isn't impacted by my absence of bowel movements. I've begun to think more about using lax or alternatives to lax to get things moving. I do eat lots of fruit...

    I was 42.2 kg yesterday morning, but after not sleeping all night I'm suddenly 43.1kg. I've eaten 3 sweet potatoes, and a lot of gum and Diet Coke. I'm hoping it's just food/water weight, but I'm seriously freaking out. Will the weight go down once I sleep? I just want to be in the 41kg range. I...

    Usually I eat low volume, low calorie, but today I've had slightly larger meals, but with the same amount of calories. I feel full, and that fills me with anxiety. What if I weigh more tomorrow morning? What if I'm still bloated? What if the water weight stays in my arms and legs? I mean, I'm...
