  • You're only anorexic if you cut back on eating or starve yourself because you think you could lose some weight. If you are eating normally, then you can consider yourself not an anorexic and people might just be using that word to describe how thin you are. You are a little on the light side, however, if you are eating healthy, your weight could be a result of your young age and fast metabolism which will slow down eventually and you should gain a few pounds.
