This the first time I have been on this site. I have lost 50 pounds in the last few months due to severly restricting my calorie count and monitor how much I eat every day. Part of it is that as I have grown older my taste and appetite has changed. I am still considered overweight by standards but my MD and therapist are insisting that I am anorexic and have threatened involuntary hospitalization. I don't see myself as anorexic and do not fit that profile.

I understand where you are coming from but you also have to look at it from their shoes. They are seeing you on a crash course and are trying to correct you before you get to a risky weight. You may still be of healthy weight but one day you may not. They see this as a likely outcome.

Heed their concerns. I constantly deny I have problems but evry once in awhile I have a lucid day.

Best wishes to you and best of luck,
