I'm receiving my BS in Psychology next year, and I do not think you have anorectic. You might have a body issue! I think it comes down too having self- confidence I do know from experiences and myself being over-weight, it's extremely hard to have self-esteem when you are over- weight and when people make comments etc. I think you should be very excited about your goals you have set for yourself! And having motivation to do so. I think MOTIVATION is the key to succeeding . What you think? Good Luck sweetie!
Disordered eating is not based on weight, but is a mental perspective and condition. Food and diet and health and body image are all very, very complicated. If you think your calorie counting feels compulsive or you are concerned that you have an unhealthy or unproductive mindset about any of these issues, it's a good idea to talk with a trusted friend or seek out a counselor. At the end of the day, what is most important is really, truly, loving ourselves.

you are not anoxeic you should congradulate yourself for your progress
You certainly can't be anorexic at that weight. A normal BMI for 5'7" is 121-153# being 18.5-24.9 body mass index. My DD is 22 and 5'9" and she's 145#. She's very curvy.
Give yourself credit for all you have released up to this point. What matters in weight loss is getting to a normal BMI so you reduce the visceral fat around your organs. That fat causes inflammation and leads to heart disease, high blood pressure, etc.
Watch the documentary film on YouTube "THE MEN WHO MADE US FAT", as it is very interesting.

I think that we are all our own worst critics... I think (esp as women) we tend to think we are worse than we are. Whats important is that you are happy wiht yourself, that you are eating healthy and living a healthy lifestyle. For me at 5'6" my doctor recommended that I be in the 150-155lb range and that is where I hope to get. So no, I don't think you can be anorexic. But if you can't tell you have lost 42lbs it might be you are being too hard on yourself. you are doing great, keep it up!

I sat a goal to be at 198 by 12/31/12. I've reached that goal. Someone and I had a conversation last night because I said that I was fat. People tell me all the time I don't look like I weigh as much as I do and I can't tell that I've lost 42 pounds. Can you be anorexic and weigh 198 pounds at 5"7?
