Also just wanted to add our physc and dietician both said no to weighing
Just wanted her to focus on eating and not too worry about quantities as long as she was eating as much as I want to weigh her to see if we r making progress I am respecting their wishes
My d is 18 so maybe this is why I'm not sure? I must admit it's hard for me as I want her to eat the daily recommended quantities
I am noticing she is more her normal self these last few days yay!!
I would sit with her 1 hour after eating and supervise showering and toilet ing to ensure no throwing up
Don't believe anything she says (it's the demon) in regards to ho much She has eaten my once very trustworthy d lies about food it's the demon
Hope this helps xx

I have to agree with Mamabear, if you didn't see her eat, it probably didn't go in. I would go recess and lunch to my d's school and she would sit with me in the car until all the food was eaten. Often she didn't come and I had to search for her. I made a big fuss about it to discourage her from sneaking away. But it worked and at the next weigh in, she stopped losing weight and started shortly thereafter she started to regain. After 8 months she gained enough weight (95% ofher target weight at that stage) and had a very supported friend so i allowed her to eat at school without me.
D became obsessed with exercise at age 9. Started eating 'healthy' at age 9.5. Restricting couple of months later. IP for 2 weeks at age 10. Slowly refed for a year and WR at age 11 in March 2017. She is back to her old happy self and can eat anything put in front of her. Now working on intuitive eating.

I could not do this.  I'm not the greatest at judging weight (my spatial abilities are really lacking) so we needed something concrete to ensure that she was progressing in the right direction.  While weight and BMI may not be the best measure, it was all we had at that point.  We did blind weigh ins once a week.
