I have started losing weight. I hate meds that make me gain weight. I become depressed if i eat too much or if i gain weight.

I try not to have breakfast otherwise i’ll gain weight.
I try to have a piece of bread and some gravy or half a sandwich for lunch.
I skip dinner sometimes i don’t feel hungry at nighttime but sometimes i indulge in takeouts at nighttime but try to eat as little as possible

I am so happy i am finally losing weight. I got off of a medication and since then my appetite is fully in my control.

Sounds like you're doing OK. I do most of my eating in afternoon and evening.

Ironically the stats show that people who skip breakfast often end up to weigh more than people who have breakfast.

If ur trying to eat as little as possible then surely ur trying to point to having an ed.
Idk if it’s an ed, but sounds at least to be some disordered eating.

Often the further u go down the rabbit hole of an ed, the more depressed you get. Then ur stuck in the habits. Wishing u could get out. U can lose weight still. U don’t have to eat so little too do it which risks a lot more than just dropping weight.

I wouldn't call it a full-blown eating disorder, but maybe it would fall under the category of "disordered eating"
