> I don't know what the 85% thing is. Maybe it would help me get less confused about how I'm feeling right now.

The 85% refers to the DSM criteria for Anorexia Nervosa: a minimally normal weight is defined as 85% of normal. The refusal to maintain a minimally normal weight is one of the criteria for Anorexia Nervosa -- above that magic number, I'm officially "Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified," below it I'm just plain anorexic. My weight had been above it for a couple of years -- I was about 90% of normal for most of the past two or three years -- now I'm back below it again. Not a lot -- just enough to wish it was more...

So, that's the 85% reference.
