I strongly suggest that you go to see a nutritionist or a councellor. After reading your bio I believe you have some extreme body image problems that need to be addressed along with your low self esteem and confidence.

Your weight is not the problem. If you're not happy with the way you look do you really think that losing 5 lbs will make a difference?

Please talk to a professional and get some advice.

I admit that i have been told this before. I don't hate my body. I do have confidence problems but that is not attributable to my weight. What i have a problem with is never achieving what i want to. lack of control.

you may not feel it is attributable to your weight, but if you continue to feel frustrated at being unable to lose when you are already a fairly low weight, your weight(and possibly your health) will take a nosedive. when you feel unhappy and depressed with your life, all facets of it tend to take a nosedive. believe me, i've been there before! it's not easy.

instead of focusing on your weight, have you tried focusing on overall health? sometimes people who have difficulty losing smaller amounts of weight benefit from toning their body. if you make the effort to gain a bit of muscle, you will end up with a nice, toned look. while doing that, you should also focus on eating healthier, not less. lots of fruits, veggies, whole grains(if you eat carbs), lean protein, and healthy fats. eating the correct amount of food and the right types of food brings not only weight management, but lots of energy and can be a mood-lifter as well!

you have not failed! you've just found a way that may not work for you. you just have to readjust, and find a different approach that works better for you.

You're at a crossroads right now that could impact the rest of your life as to have the onset of an eating disorder. Accept yourself, you're still growing, and no one is perfect. Focus on health and you can't go wrong. Avoid process foods, exercise and thank God (or the universe) that you're healthy. So many are sick, dying, poor, in war torn countries. Now is having a thigh gap that important? Do some volunteer work and I'm sure your perspective on just how lucky, great and awesome your life is will change. You need to start looking outwards, and not focusing on little imperfections. Take care and be happy! Life is to precious to sweat the small stuff.

i mean this in the nicest way possible, i'm very sorry if this comes across as mean in any way, but as someone who has struggled with ED in the past, the comment about war torn countries is very out of line. you cannot shame someone with an ED into snapping out of it like that, it's not how it works and it's not very kind to do. like i said, i mean no offense by this at all! i've just been through this before, and it doesn't work - if anything it makes the person feel worse and ashamed and makes the cycle harder to break out of. thanks!

also, please don't think you need a thigh gap to be seen as pretty or skinny. depending on your biological makeup and bone structure, it may be impossible to get without starving yourself, which no one should ever do!

if anything, you should probably be eating more and doing strength workouts. you're at a healthy weight for your height and age but the kind of definition you're looking for comes from having muscle. i wouldn't even worry about your weight for that, focus on full body toning and you'll start to see those results you want. however, muscle mass requires more energy upkeep than fat does, so you'll want to increase your food intake(sounds counter-intuitive, i know, but it works). a lot of girls are scared of gaining muscle because they think it'll make them look gross or manly, but women have to do a LOT of lifting and carbo-loading to have huge muscles. a little bit of extra muscle gives you that toned look and burns fat quicker Smile

make sure you're eating lean protein like chicken, fish, eggs, greek yogurt, legumes etc. plenty of fruits and veggies, and whole grain. the best way to achieve muscle gain is to eat a small amount of healthy carbs(like a clif bar or a smoothie) 30mins-1hr before working out, do workouts that target your muscles, then have a small protein-filled snack like cheese or eggs or a protein shake 30mins-1hr after the workout is done.

i hope this helps!

Snacks! I need everyones favorite snack!
i like vegetables with hummus, unsalted pretzels, any fruit, a spoonful of pb, a sliced-up tomato with salt & pepper, small handfuls of nuts/seeds... a lot more but i can't think of them at the moment :/
