OK I just think I'd die under 15 ibs if I'm only 89 I'm also losing a lot of weight quickly
I think you would be surprised at how the blanket feels,it doesn't feel crushing at all and I think even at your weight it would be about the proper one to get.Not only that but you may end up gaining weight and not stay the size you are.

It sounds like you're losing weight because you're not eating.Why are you starving yourself like that?

I think I'm eating OK I am eating less that I used to but recently I stopped eating at regular times and just ate when I got hungry last time I ate was a pistachio nut idk lk 2 days ago but I'm not hungry so it's fine
I'm not starving myself I just have a smaller appetite than I used to
Sorry but eating a pistachio nut 2 days ago seems like starving yourself to me and why I said that.As someone that has struggled with anorexia in the past I can say firsthand how dangerous and unhealthy not eating can be.Have you talked to a Dr about your lack of appetite?

Wouldn't I know if I was doing that
Are you not eating because you're not hungry,because you want to lose weight,as a way to feel in control?

While it's pretty normal to not eat when you're not hungry,it's not really normal to not get hungry.

I suggest you see a doctor about what's going on.That was the first thing I did years ago,and I was put on prescription vitamins to help with my appetite.

It depends the reason behind not eating and even though you're not hungry we still need to eat
