I feel guilty even writing this post as I'm not necessarily trying to "lose weight" - but get more fit and tone. I have body image and food issues that I am working on with a counselor, but overall I am doing well.
I am currently struggling with how much I "should" be eating. I think I'm not eating enough, but at the same time I am anxious about eating more and that eating more will make me gain weight which I don't want to do.
I want to stay at the weight I am now (or a little lower) and tone up. I'm barely 5'1" and currently weight about 107 pounds. I don't want to gain weight or "get bigger" - I want to get trimmer and stronger. I am eating around 1200-1500 calories a day (usually closer to 1200). I'm pretty active - walking on the treadmill everyday for about 45 minutes and doing a Barre or Bodyflow class about 3-4 times a week.
I'm hoping I can receive some constructive/non-judgmental advice and support from you ladies about this struggle I am experiencing. I imagine a lot of you think this "issue" is ridiculous and that I am being silly and should be super happy with where I'm at and that I shouldn't be concerned with how much I am eating because my weight is great, but this is something I legitimately would like advice on.
Thanks in advance.
