I have lost 60lbs. in the last 2 weeks. I haven't changed my diet or fitness routine, but I have been under a little more stress lately. What should I do? 2weeks ago I was a size 7 in Juniors and now I am in a Juniors size 4!!!!!

SIXTY POUNDS in TWO WEEKS???

No, it's NOT healthy.  Get the stress under control and see a doctor to see if that much weight loss in a short time has done any damage and look for any underlying health causes.

Ummm...do you mean 6 lbs?  even people on the Biggest loser don't lose 60 lbs n 2 weeks...and if you did lose that much and were already a size 7, then you would be in little girl clothes now.  I would go call the doc to just get some advice.

I was 185 when I weighed myself on July 16. and when I weighed myself last night I was 125. I'm going to call my doctor when the office opens

Is it possible your scale is messed up?  60 lbs in 2 weeks is insane!  And I would think would lead to a bigger size drop then what you are talking about.  I am not sure about Jr. sizes - but I know typically they say 10 lbs lost is going to be a size drop.... So, if you truly did drop 60 lbs you would be TINY!  Which I am guessing you were pretty small to begin with....

I went to my doctor this morning I do weigh only 125 I have naturally wide hips. I have something wrong with my digestive system and my iron levels are extremely lower then normal.She is going to have me undergo a lot more tests in order to find the root of the issue.

Did you get any advice for what to do in the meantime?  You don't need to lose another 30 pounds between now and then.
