My goal weight is not 85. I am 90ibs and that is my goal weight. I would also like to address that i was a competitive Team level 6 junior Olympian gymnast last year and I was anorexic. I did an EXTREMLY INTENSE 4 hour work out after school from 4-8pm and my coaches kept telling me I was fat so I went from 95 to 80pounds in less than 4 days. I would not eat breakfast or lunch, I wouldn't drink because I was afraid it would make me fat again, I would force myself to eat diner but afterwards I would go on a 1 hour run without jogging or stopping. Then I got help when I passed out in the middle of the hallway. I am happy and healthy now, I feel better, I'm not sick all the time, and my grades have gone way up. I am happy I quit physically doing gymnastics it only because of that but because I seriously bruised my tibia bone. But I was an anorexic and I will never go back to such unhappiness and low self esteeme. I do worry about my weight still, but I worry about getting too thin. Thank you for listening to my post.

I am shocked that your coaches would pressure you into such unhealthy habits. Glad you are feeling better.

I am glad, too. It is often the coaches that push healthy girls into eating disorders.
