How to treat being anorexic?

Hi, I am a 22 years old female, 5'1 and had a baby about 5 1/2 months ago and I am 93 pounds postpartum. I am still an anorexic since I was 11 or 12 years old. And so when I was pregnant I had to eat and I thinking I was getting fat, keep in mind I was 80 pounds since I was 11 or 12 and I wanted to keep losing it. So I am trying to get better at it and I was wondering if 93 pounds is a good weight for a person my size or should I gained more weight and its quite difficult because I am breastfeeding. Any advice?

Suggest you go to your GP and talk to them about your weight and nutrition - you want to do what's best for both you and the baby. Don't know if you've ever had any support/help for your ED - but suggest that now might be a good time to get some specialist ED advice - so again approach your GP - anorexic thoughts and habits are not going to leave you on your own - so do get some help - wouldn't it be wonderful to be bringing up your lovely child without you having anorexic thoughts and feelings.
