Anyone have any expirence with no weight gain and why it’s happening? Have been refeeding my D for 3 weeks now without weighing her (said this was triggering but she would be willing triweekly blind weighs) she has expireced extreme hunger in which she’s eating close to seven thousand calories a day which is also causing her to be very awake and she says she isn’t sleeping and spending all night awake in bed with her eyes closed. After the three weeks (today) I weighed my D and she had lost weight!! Also there’s no chance she’s exercising, she’s had a broken ankle the past three months and is in a cast unable to do much as she is using crutches 
I think your d is in IP now??? You wrote that 2 days ago...strange.
What you wrote in your other posts does not fit together. First it was a broken wrist and now its an ankle. First you wrote she was cleaning up the house like crazy and now you write she could not move because she needed crutches.
I get more and more the idea that you are a sufferer seaking for information here...I will not reply any more. Get help.
Keep feeding. There is light at the end of the tunnel.
She does have a broken ankle she skate boarded when she was in her hyper state and broke her ankle the sprained wrist also occurred but was never noticed as she didn’t complain of any wrist pain at first. She is not IP we are home refeeding still, she cleans with the crutches so she is able to move but not to go for a run obviously.
Hi, I think somewhere else you wrote your d has / could have bipolar and at the moment she is in the hyper / mania stage. That could explain why her body is burning through the calories. I'm going to be very blunt, your focus now should be to get the bipolar under control, because bipolar kills quicker than anorexia. My friend's late husband had bipolar and was taken off his medication too soon. His anxiety returned on the Sunday, Monday he didn't come home from work and he sadly committed suicide on Tuesday. I urge you to take her back to the hospital until they admit her. Good luck.
D became obsessed with exercise at age 9 and started eating 'healthy' at age 9.5. Restricting couple of months later. IP for 2 weeks at age 10. Slowly refed for months on Ensures alone, followed by swap over with food at a snails pace. WR after a year at age 11 in March 2017.

I'm very confused by this post as it conflicts a lot with the previous one where you stated D had been running through the streets and had cuts up her legs, yet here you say she has been on crutches for months.
I feel like you may not be being 100% genuine and need more support than an online forum can offer. I hope that you are able to reach out and seek appropriate support.
