Thinspo, or "thinspiration" is a notion with the goal of idealizing thinness and diet culture over one's whole self, when in reality, you are inspirational and all sorts of wonderful because of who you are. You may exist within your body, but it idoes not define you. All body shapes and sizes are beautiful, thigh gaps and visible hip bones or not; it really doesn't matter. Your beauty shines from the inside out and you deserve to honor the light you bring to this world.
Ask away, beautiful!

I began my “weight loss” journey by shedding the heavy, limiting beliefs about my body,
I became “fit” by exercising the right to love myself and appreciating my softness,
I cut out “unhealthy foods” by deciding negative-self talk was no longer sweet.
I chose to advocate for whole self instead of any number on a scale.

You cannot measure an eating disorder. Your BMI can be overweight and you can still have an ED or distorted eating habits. You will never lose enough weight to satisfy an eating disorder because even a -400 lbs on a scale wouldn’t be enough.
You deserve to be proud of your body and its shape and different textures and all that it does. You deserve to eat a general minimum of 2,000 calories each day. You deserve to exist and love all that you are.
Eating disorders are tricky and I absolutely am not a professional and cannot diagnose, but it seems like you are rationalizing the distorted behaviors by using your feelings around weight, and that flags ED thinking. NO matter what, you deserve to reach out and make sure your body is healthy in all of its totality, not just weight.
You deserve to love yourself.
