Do I look anorexic to you?

Home More advice Health

I am frequently told that my waist makes me look "anorexic" and "sickly." I hate ignorant comments like that because I definitely do not desire to look like that and I don't think I do. As you can see I'm really not even that skinny overall, it's just my midsection and arms. However, its gotten to the point where even my parents think I need to gain weight. I would like a serious, honest opinion before I make a decision like that. I am almost 16 years old, 5'3" tall, and I weigh 105 pounds. Also, the pictures where I am stretching/dancing were taken almost exactly one year ago as I know those are a bit worse. I actually did struggle with eating problems around that time. Finally, my waist is currently 22 inches around normally.
