Since you are eating something and also willingly with consistency I wouldn't say there is something wrong with you. In disorders usually, one can lose appetite completely and does not willingly take food and/or feels nauseated and often vomits involuntarily or self-induced.

If you needed to lose weight, then this might be a good change possibly healthy too.

Make sure you keep yourself hydrated and are on a balanced meal.

If you think you might be losing too much weight too fast i.e., more than 10 lbs in a week or have lost your appetite completely then you will need to see your doctor for an evaluation.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
