Is that as common as I think it is?
I have noticed a common pattern with close friends, cousins and even myself after gain-loss.
All of us were worried about gaining it back.
I already know that I have to gain around 2-3 kg in order to be normal/healthy, however I am afraid of seeing the scale increase because I am worried that I might gain all of it back.
It's such an irrational fear, but I already know that other people had it before me.
Sometimes I wonder if that kind of behavior is normal. I mean, I still work to maintain my current weight (consume around 1500-1800 per day), I also still eat sugary stuff and I am not strict, so I don't think I have an ED or something.
However, if I happen to be eating more than that, I panic even though I acknowledge that I have to gain a bit more.
I am wondering if other people feel the same way and if there is a way to stop feeling that way.

I don't know of anyone who lost a significant weight who didn't have the same concerns. It's normal.1

I was once 187 lbs at 13 and over time I lost weight and I'm 127 lbs. My goal is 115. I did gain 10 lbs back and it was horrible. It's easy to gain weight back.1
