Why do you want to be 98lbs? I'm 5'3" and I was 89lbs when I was 15. This was when I had anorexia. I think that you might have the wrong community?

I know my eventual goal weight is quite low, but it's not low enough to be anorexic, and I'm going to do it slowly so it'll be safe. But if you want me to leave I will.

This community is for people who are trying to lead a healthy lifestyle by losing weight in order to be healthy. If you're 123lbs, I think that you are already in a healthy place. You need to maintain your weight, not lose any.

For someone who is 5'3" and weighs 123lbs, your BMI is at 21.8. That is in the normal/healthy range. If you were to get down to 98lbs, your BMI would lower to 17.4, which is underweight and generally unsafe.

I don't think a few of us in this community want to help someone dip into unhealthy weight. It's not safe.

Ok then, I'll leave. Thanks for your concern x
