Too Skinny?

I don't think I'm too skinny, but my mom thinks I am.
I guess it's possible. I have officially lost 17 pounds.
How did I do it? I have no clue.
I wasn't addicted to the treadmill. I would do half a mile a day.
I would still eat cookies and pig out on fast food.

I used to be 142 pounds, and now I weigh 125. I'm 5'9".
I just did my BMI and it's 18.5.
Normal weight = 18.5-24.9

Underweight = <18.5
Blah, they're just numbers. I feel healthier and I like what I see in the mirror. And I barely try to exercise now. I just maintain what needs to be maintained. But what if I am underweight? Wow, this is odd. This is the first time I've ever had to wonder if I need to put ON weight. Not take it off. I've got some before pictures, and after pictures that I took today. I drew over my hand in one of them because it looked like my shirt was up too high. It wasn't, but it's a precaution. Before:After:
So what do you think? Am I too thin?
I spent so much time trying to lose weight that I guess somewhere along the line I forgot when to stop.
Even now I want to jump on the treadmill because I ate a cookie. Freaking compulsions.

If I don't sign on tomorrow because I get an xbox or something, Merry Christmas!

I think you look great too, but I don't think you should lose anymore.

You look great darling, but don't lose anymore weight or I will have to waddle down and force feed you.

I don't think you need to lose anymore. You look great! I was 98 pounds my whole teenage and 20s years. When I hit 30 I started gaining. I am up to 120 and I feel much better. When I go back and look at pictures I was grossly thin and it looked bad.

Merry Christmas!

You are little skinny, but who cares! You look hot! And be thankful for your hot skinny body while you can because once you're nearing 30 your metabolism goes all downhill!

Maybe just stick to what you're doing but make sure you're eating nutritious stuff.

If you're totally worried go check w/ your doc.

You don't need to loose any more weight!! It looks good on you, but the most important part is whatever makes YOU feel good and happy.

Merry Christmas!

Don't lose anymore, you look beautiful, but if bones start being prominent, I think that is bad! And you SO do not need to do the treadmill for a cookie. You looked great before too, so you look great before and now!!:)
