On the Ritalin though I do find that I forget to eat sometimes. When I first started it I dropped 5lbs quickly.

I was diagnosed with N about 6 months ago, and my Dr. Immediately put me on Ritalin. Before I was diagnosed I weighed 132 lbs, and now 6 months later I now weigh 115 lbs on a good day, my activity level hasn't changed much, although my eating habits are completely different. I find that I have to force myself to eat because I get to focused on my daily work that I just forget to eat. In the past my stomach would growl to let me know and now nothing... My mom is constantly on me about my weight and I don't know what to tell her when I dont know how to change it. I feel super skinny, and almost. I have started to eat healthier foods, and a lot more protien to increase the amount of nutrients I am taking in, and still I'm not seeing any results no matter how much I work out and try to build myself back up.
Is this something that will change over time? Does anyone have any ideas on what I can do to feel stronger or anything I can tell my mom to get her off my back?

Eat a late, large supper. Eating in the evening is exactly what you don't want to do if you are wanting to lose weight because it's the best way to gain it!
