    I lost 30 pounds in 9 months

    while away at college. I had always maintained my weight of 135, and always thought i was overweight. I got to college, the food was bad so i limited myself and suddenly i started noticing weight coming off. I liked the feeling of it, but I took it too far and now I'm considered...

    Im doing this on my own,

    no nutritionist. No therapist. Just the somewhat-support of my mother who also used to deal with an ED. Anyone have tips, advice, warnings? Also, anyone else experience extreme bloating? It's really worrying me. Is it normal? How long till it goes away?

    I should be proud of how far I came in 6 months.

    I have started filling out, I have no bones poking out of my ribs or hips. I am 182 cm in height. 6 months ago I was 64 kgs which is extremely underweight. Now I have gained 10 kgs and up to 73kgs.First time I have been over 70kgs for a long time.

    Trying to eat everyday
