Weight is an outdated way of diagnosing eating disorders. I would go to your GP and ask to be sent to an eating disorder clinic. I went there for treatment and they are the best people to help. You may also find support and advice on here,

You have come a long way to realise you have an eating disorder and to seek support. I think you should be very proud of yourself.
