Don't try and lose weight, you are at a perfect weight now. I was just like you, thought I was fat but was actually very slim, so I lost weight, too much, and got sent to a phsyciTric hospital, where they have now set me a weight I HAVE to get to. Guess what it was - it is 11 pounds heavier than I weighed at the start. Don't do this to yourself.

You say that you don't want to become anorexic, but it sounds that your extremely close to slipping down that path, I strongly recommend that you go an see your doctor, so as to nip it a bud. With any eating disorder this is absolutely key. YOu may also have body dysmorphic disorder, or even some form of depression. But instead of guessing, I really do recommend that you go and see your doctor, as they will be able to asses you, answer any questions you may have, and give you some much needed advive.
I hope everything becomes much clearer and better for you very soon.

Best wishes
