Thanks for sharing your experience yellowbird.
I told my pdoc about my plans and about how I've been on the losing weight phase of Weight Watchers. She told me my build is average and my body isn't meant to be on the lower end of the normal BMI range. She said different people have different builds and mine is average, not thin. She said I was perfect the way I am now, with a normal BMI and healthy.
She thinks I need to focus my attention on other things that are more important. Things like looking for a job, learning how to socialize and school. I am wasting my energy and attention on something that I don't have a problem with, which is my weight.
I think what I will do is continue with Weight Watchers and watch out for any unhealthy behaviours. My pdoc said I am at high risk for developing an eating disorder, probably because of my previous binging and purging. I think she is worried starving myself will lead to binging and subsequent purging. I'm at high risk of developing bulimia, probably not anorexia. Probably not anorexia because I have poor impulse control and am prone to binging and purging.
