    Hey everyone! I'm Tegan and I'm looking to lose a fair bit of weight.

    I currently weigh 15st 6lbs. My goal weight is 10st. I'm 5'8.5" and I'm 17.

    In the past, I have suffered from the eating disorder Bulimia. Between the ages of 13 and 16, at the end of last year, I got very, very ill due to my ED, so I went into recovery. Although I don't have the best relationship with food still, I feel it's time to start slimming down healthily.

    I have already dropped from 16st 3lbs to 15st 6lbs in 3 weeks. And since March when I came out of recovery I naturally dropped from 17st 9lbs to 16st 3lbs. I have come to this forum for companionship and support.

    At my lowest weight, I was 8st 6lbs at 5'7, but that was during my bulimia. I don't want to be that skinny again, but I do want to be between 10st and 11st.

    Uhm, a bit about me, I am about to move house, love horse riding which is part of the reason for weight loss, when I was between my lowest weight and up to 13st, I could do showjumping and cross country, but at my weight, the horse can not take my weight as well as it's own over jumps. So I have just been doing hacking and dressage, which gets very, very boring, and I want to jump again!

    My diet is a heavily calorie controlled diet. I eat under 800cals a day, I know this isn't totally healthy, but I did a food diary for 2 weeks before I started dieting, and I only ate around 1300 cals a day anyway, so I went 500cals under that (like suggested).

    Can't wait to meet everyone!

    Hi and welcome. Is your dieting being controlled by your doctor or are you going it alone?

    It's being watched over by my therapist, he suggested the food diary for 2 weeks before to work out how many cals I eat a day, then take 500 cals off that. He thinks I am mentally ready to start losing weight again. :)
