Congrats on being on the way to a healthy lifestyle. I would like to point out that your BMI is a good way to set your goal ... If you are 5"5 and 107lb, you are at a BMI of 17.8, and 18.5 and under is considered underweight (http://www.consumer.gov/weightloss/bmi.htm) It's always a good idea to meet w/ a nutritionist to help you figure out a track for healthy eating.

I know that BMI are generalizing, every person is unique. But just something to keep in mind!

Thanks for your concern, and I do realize that 107 would make me underweight, but I've always been underweight my whole life (in fact i was born underweight) until 2 years ago when I became anorexic (during which I became SEVERELY underweight) and then complusive overeating which brought me to the other end of the scale... My weight before all of this happend was NEVER over 105 lbs. Both my parents are underweight as well! We're just a small boned family! But like I said, I do appreciate your concern! Thanks a bunch and Take care!
