Hi, my name is Angie. I'm 13, 150cm and 39-40kg(I don't weigh myself). 8 months ago, I started restricting calories, exercising heavily and went down to 36.5kg at my lowest. It wouldn't really be considered anorexia though That lasted for 3 months and I have since gained weight, cut exercise and significantly upped calorie intake. My period stopped and has not come back since. What should I do? Do I need to gain more weight?
