: I have bulimic/ anorexic for 5 year. At my heaviest i was 5'8" 137lbs. I have not lost a lot of weight. Right now I am 102lbs. I am not very thin. Not to the point where I look sick. Its weird though, sometimes I can see that I am thin in pictures, but even when I weigh the same or less now than I did in the pictures when I look in the mirror I do not see what I see in the picture...does that make any sense? Mostly i see that i could be much thinner and look fine. I remember when I was at my heavier weight I would look at magazines and wish to look like the models. Now I look at the same magazines and think to myself that those models are heavier than I would want to be. I have a really hard time having a realistic idea of how much other people weigh. Girls who I think are much thinner than me tell me I weigh less than them, but I have a hard time believing them. How much do you think the girls in the magazines weigh for the different heights? My perspective is so screwed up and I wish i had some real #s to compare against, because I think that looking at myself I must weigh much more than they do.
