    In bullet points, here is the background info:

    - Aged 15 I started restricting and lost a lot of weight.
    - Got admitted to CAMHS and diagnosed with anorexia.
    - Weight restored and discharged aged 16.

    Fast forward two years:

    - Now aged 18.
    - Lost all the weight CAMHS made me gain but not INTENTIONALLY.
    - Current BMI 12.7
    Weight-wise, I would probably be given an eating disorder diagnosis. But I am not restricting. After the initial weight loss, I realised I had to eat more and my weight has been stable for about a year and I am still successfully maintaining.

    just saying if you fast-forward 2 years from 15 wouldn't you be 17

    not intentionally/not restricting = not anorexic

    not intentionally/not restricting = not anorexic
    ^ That.

    If you don't mind, would you mind sharing your weight? I've never heard of a bmi that's under 15, so I'm just curious. If you do mind, then don't worry, I'll understand.
