I had an eating disorder for many years and over all it is quite stable since around 5 years...
But the last 2 years I gained quite some KG's - some bad thing kicked me out of balance and I started to eat again.

I would love and need to loose some weight, but especially that can be tricky to relapse into eating disorder behavior.
I realised lately I have Body Dismorphia - focussed my overweight - I hate how it makes me look. So sometimes this can make me very harsh to myself, what is foundational for eating disorder behavior.

Can someone relate in how to loose weight after an eating disorder? Does someone maybe want to be an accountability partner to help me to come back on track?

I'm sure nobody here is well enough to help you do that. The best place to go is your doctor as maybe they can refer you to a nutritionist. They may be able to check your weight because it is possible you are not overweight.

Having a bit more weight is not a problem as long as you are healthy and within a normal range for your height and age. I am a bit heavier than i would like but i am healthy and still look nice.
