30 Bananas a Day!

I've been eating 811 since May, and I have gained a TON of weight. Some of it was good, I guess (I was 100 pounds when I started and recovering from an ED), but it is getting out of hand. 

I weighed myself for the first time since starting this lifestyle just last week. I was 130 pounds!!!!! For my height (5'4 and 1/2) that is chubby, and all I am is flab and chub. I don't fit into any of my clothes anymore; I went from a size 0/1 to  size 5/6 or 7/8. I'm starting to get really discouraged; running is becoming increasingly difficult as I keep gaining weight, I look awful in everything I wear because my fat belly and thighs protrude, and I just generally look like a SAD eater. 

I eat about 2500-3000 calories a day, do sprints 4 times a week, run maybe 10 miles a week, and swim for about a half hour on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. I also lift weights and do other strength training 2-3 times a week. 

I follow all of Freelee's "Flat stomach tips" and still have no results.

I love this lifestyle, except for the fact that I'm very uncomfortable in my body now. 

What should I do? Any tips for a more toned stomach and thighs? I don't know what to do anymore.

I know my BMI is "healthy" but I feel like I have very little to no muscle mass whatsoever. 

Does your body not form muscle as readily after anorexia? 

If so, any idea how long until it does build muscle?

I started eating more in January, but only upped my calories from 400-600 to 1200. Then, in late April/early May, I took the HCV plunge and ate 2200. Then, in July, after having difficulty sleeping for 2 weeks, I upped it to 2700. Is my metabolism faster yet?

1200-1400 calories is WAY TOO LITTLE. At least 3000 calories is the way to go! Undereating/calorie restricting is abuse on your body and it won't thank you for depriving it from more calories!

Thank you! This really helps :)

I second what Richie said about your BMI being healthy, but I also want to add that you look really young.  You're BMI is calculated slightly differently under 20 years of age because of the changes that are taking place in your body.  Those changes should be fed with adequate nutrition, rest and exercise which it sounds like you have covered.  Teenager or not though, a BMI of 22 is perfect.  And judging from your photo's, you're a very beautiful girl and have nothing to worry about in regards to your appearance.

THank you so much!

I often try to remind myself of the endless benefits of this diet, and it inspires me to keep on with it, since it really is worth it. I'm just frustrated is all. 

You're an inspiring person, thanks for the response! :)

I recommend trying to eat smaller meals more frequently . Keep up with your water intake . If your profile pic is a recent one . You look fine to me .
