I would tread VERY CAREFULLY - I had a peek at your SparkPage and note that you "USED" to have an Eating Disorder. I think that this is what is clouding your ability to rationalize properly. The fact is, we NEED to eat - pure and simple! When we do exercise, we NEED to eat more! The recommended calories for an average weight, sedentary woman is 1200. A person who is heavier, and/or active, needs to eat more, and that includes those wishing to lose weight.
I peeked at your Nutrition Tracker (yes, I am one of the "tracker stalkers" - LOL) and IF you have entered in all you eat, then your calories really are mostly too little. I also noticed that your protein is pretty low. My understanding is that you should aim for at least 60g.
Make sure that your calories are healthy ones MOST of the time. There is no reason why we can't enjoy the occasional tipple or treat, but just 'occasional'! Plenty of fruit and veges, carbs from good sources such as whole-grains etc., and quality lean protein is important to our health and well-being. Also ensure that you don't skip meals, and start the day with a good breakfast - not just eating a little, but eating enough to pick up the slack of fasting overnight and starting the activity for the day. This will help to set you up.
Because of your history with an Eating Disorder, I suggest that you may find it in your interest to talk with your Dr and ask for a referral to a Registered Dietitian and/or a Therapist - both of whom can help you through this journey in a safe way.
