So I've lost a lot of weight recently and I'm a 14 year old, 5,4, and 124 pound female. I lost almost 20 pounds in the last 5 months and recently, I've been trying to eat less calories, less portions, and healthier. I'm not trying to lose weight! I'm trying to maintain. But my parents/ friends keep telling me that I look ashen, or like I'm withering away into nothing. They also say that I look 'too skinny'. I'll put a picture of me below but my question is- Do I look too skinny? Or pretty good?
And is it possible to have anorexia if you don't starve yourself?
Because when I look into the mirror, all I see in this picture is someone who needs to tone up and lose a bit more fat.

Lord you don't look like a skeleton but be careful please. You are not fat. Your ribs are showing. Also, I have that problem as well. My ribs show yet I still think I'm kinda fat. I used to starve myself and I I'm 5' 3" and used to be 115 and then I went down to 105 which is close to underweight. I'm trying to recover but I don't like saying that because I don't think I fit the guidelines for anorexia beCuse I was never underweight. Anorexia is horrible. It ruined half of my 7th grade year because i was always upset and depressed. I actually keep having the impulse to relapse but I convince myself that I can do it and because of this eating disorder I exercise every day.. Don't start starving yourself please. Don't do it. If you want to tone up, just exercise and eat healthy. Eat protein. Good luck :) be Postive! Love yourself!1
