Weight loss/ anxiety

Posted , 2 users are following.

I have had some severe anxiety lately . About 3 weeks ago I hurt my knee and I have been unable to work out since. Before that I was working out 4-5 days week doing boxing and CrossFit type workouts and doing nutrisystem to lose weight.

I have since stopped working out the last 3 weeks and went off my diet. I have however maybe lost 10 pounds or so in last 3 weeks which confuses me.

I had a lot of muscle mass, so wondering if I’m losing that from not working out and since muscle weighs more than fat. Also I have had severe health anxiety about things like cancer for the past month, so not sure if snorts is causing the weight loss.

I had a CT scan of my chest in May which was good and normal CBC about 3 weeks ago.

Not sure what to think! Causing me anxiety!!
