I think I have body dysmorphia as I thought I was on the slim side of normal with chunkyish thighs and a bit of a podgy tummy (I've recently had a baby) but I have just calculated my bmi and it's 15.8. I thought that 15.8 was quite close to 18 but it seems that below 16 is considered quite underweight. However, when I look at myself I just seem a regular size.
I lost my baby weight in about a week as I didn't gain as much as normal due to hyperemesis gravidarum and I was careful about what I ate as I was scared to gain a lot. I weighed myself about 6 weeks after I gave birth and I was 6 stone 10 and I've been around that weight since. I was fairly happy with my body especially as I thought that was fairly reasonable after having a baby but gradually I've been thinking that I've gained weight as I feel like my thighs and stomach are getting fatter but I weigh the same. I think my scales might be broken but as I've discovered my bmi is fairly low I think it may be body dysmorphia.
I'd like to see if other people think I'm just overthinking this or if there may be something to it.
(I also have 3 of the 4 diagnostic criteria for anorexia.)
When can you expect yours?
