Did I have an eating disorder?

I'm in 8th grade now..but in 6th grade, I was underweight. I was 11 years old and weighed around 60 pounds. My 8 year old cousin weighed as much as me..maybe even more. Everytime I thought of food, I felt nauseous and didn't want it. I would eat, but barely. I thought I was skinny and I loved it. Every month, I had to go to the doctors so they could check my weight progress. The first 2 or 3 times I didn't gain anything. During that time, I was gaining 2 pounds a year.. Was it an eating disorder?

    No not really, especially if you didn't restrain yourself from eating purposely so you could stay skinny. My sister had a phase just like you, it seemed as if she didn't really like food for about a year when she was 6, but as long as you eat regularly now and are a healthy weight, it wasn't an eating disorder. If it were you wouldn't have been able to just get over it without any help from a professional.
