20 years old, live in London, UK.

i'm very much an all or nothing person, and with my attitude to food this really has to change! in short, i was at my lowest weight last summer at 93lb, giving me a BMI of 18.7 (i'm 4"11) and even though that's a low number and i did look slim, i wasn't happy because it wasn't the body i wanted. i lost weight, yes, but i probably lost lots of muscle along the way too - because i did it so fast, unhealthily, obsessively and in a way that was mentally wrong and damaging. it's still hard for me to fight with those voices that tell me 1000kcal is too much, or that i have to exercise to burn off everything i eat - because once i get in this "losing weight" frame of mind, it takes over my life and in fact just makes me gain weight again straight after!

so i have to keep these disordered thoughts at bay, but also lose weight healthily and build more muscle and have a body and lifestyle that i'm proud of.

just as a note, people have commented that my goal weight is extremely low, and i do realise that - i've set it as a goal that i would want to weigh if i had the same body composition as now. but i'm really hoping to weigh more than that and have more muscle, i'm not trying to emaciate myself i promise :)
