So since I've moved to Florida (originally from Pennsylvania, then lived in Ohio for a while) I've developed some difficult anxiety issues and have been losing weight. I'm about 8 or so pounds under my healthy weight. I started on some anxiety medication last month and have been doing yoga every night usually for abut an hour. Both of these things have helped with my anxiety (I'm pretty much back to me!) but I'm finding it really, really difficult to put on any weight.
I try to eat pretty healthy and I want my weight gain to be brought about by keeping that in mind so I was wondering if anyone out there had any tips? I searched around this site (and the internet in general) but with out any real luck. I guess I'm in the minority, most people want to lose weight not gain it.
I have a check up with my doctor later in March and I'm going to talk to her about what I can do but I was curious if anyone else had this issue and had some info for me.
Much love ~
