    It sounds like you are underweight, given the standards. You might consider looking at this set of questions at http://www.anad.org/site/anadweb/content.php?type=... and reading some of the resources below to help you think about whether you might have an eating disorder. One of the characteristics of anorexia is often believing you look heavier than you are.

    I'm not going to tell you you're too skinny because it drives me and my friend nuts. My friend also eats only one meal a day, dinner. She hates it when ppl ask her why she doesn't eat. Still, I don't think you should lose anymore weight. 88 pounds for a 5'2" person is really light.

    You should eat more. Some teens have a phsycological disease that makes them think they are too fat, and they do not eat. People HAVE died. You should start eating more, but don't eat to much immediatly, because your digestive system is still used to eating very little. Add a bit at a time.

    well i'm not going to say that you are too skinny, but i think their might be a healthier weight for you. personally think that you could gain some weight, don't pay attention to mirrors you only see what you want to see in mirrors. how do you feel? if you feel good then stay at the weight you are.don't worry about your looks worry about your health if a doctor says you are healthy then screw what other people think.

    You are just fine the way you are. If anything the healthy weight is about 95-135 for your height. God bless you.
