P..I understand your frustration, but being recovered is more important than being at a weight that you think is more healthy. The weight you are at may be YOUR healthy weight. It may be the weight your body needs to be in order to prevent a relapse. The best way to insure health is to eat well, exercise moderately, and don’t focus on trying to be a certain weight. Your body will protect where it needs to be. Are you seeing a professional to help you learn to value yourself for who you are internally, and to lessen the focus on your weight/shape? Please consider this, and celebrate your life!!
