Yep 2-3 months...

Not having a good morning today. She's got gymnastics (which she usually loves) and she won't get out of bed and hasn't had breakfast yet.... the lady at camhs said to keep doing her routine because it's good for her mood to get out and about (not staying in bed all day).

My d is saying everyone is thinner than her/better than her and she doesn't want to go :-(

That is ED talk. Try to not engage in it. It will fade away slowly after WR.
Try to distract her if possible. Maybe she can go on a short walk with you to get her out of bed?

Keep feeding. There is light at the end of the tunnel.

Gentle movement and connection when possible. I am planning to relegate my sprinter to walking on the treadmill. She will be ‘spewing’ (to coin a popular Aussie term for anger!) hope that you get to be seen closer to 2 than 3 months! Varies from state to state here.

Sorry for the long wait! I agree getting her out of the house for a bit is good. We had to stop all physical activity for D to heal. Not sure how physically active your D is, it is just a thought. 
Yup the part about comparing herself to others is typical ED. Distraction can be helpful. Help her to get her thoughts onto something more positive can help.
