Losing weight without trying to

I have lost a stone in a month without even trying to. I am not sure whether I am not eating enough but usually for me, its hard to lose weight. I followed slimming world a couple of years prior because I needed to lose weight then I gained it and now I'm losing it without following any plans. This is typically what I eat in a day... Another thing to add is I have stress and health anxiety which has manifested massively sad

I would skip breakfast as I always feel sick in the mornings, it's definitely not pregnancy. It goes away afterwards.

Afternoon I will have 2 crumpets with marmite and cheese, then I would have a packet of crisps and maybe a couple of biscuits with a cup of tea

Evenings I have a bowl of curry, lasagna, pasta.. Anything that we fancy really. I don't usually eat all of it because I'm just not hungry. Then i have a dessert later, a magnum or rice pudding

Some days I eat more than others but that's typically what I eat so I'm guessing it's probably not enough calories? My appetite and love for food has completely gone sad

I never took any notice but I had friends say have I lost weight and people at work also saying it which worries me even more and I'm always saying no I haven't then they say you definitely have so thats when I weighed myself and saw that I'm a stone down from last month when I weighed myself.

That’s diet food. It doesn’t sound like you’re eating enough.

Sometimes feeling done can affect your appetite. Could that be it for you?

I’d have a chat with your gp. flowers

Any chance of diabetes? I lost weight rapidly before I was diagnosed

Given the op has health anxiety, I don’t think suggesting lots of potential causes of weight loss is going to be helpful at all.

Op your GP is your best bet. flowers

Go and see your GP, see what they suggest.

Are you peri menopausal or do you get Xmas anxiety? My lack of appetite and nausea always starts end of November and I struggle to eat much in December. After Xmas I’m back to normal! Worth having a chat with your GP though x
