Are you having actual anxiety attacks ( which usually arise out of the blue and aren't actually about anything except feeling anxious and scared ) ? Or are you waking at times, worrying about your concerns about losing weight and feeling pretty ? Sounds more like the latter. Actually, I think your plan is backwards. FIRST, see a good local psychologist / counsellor, and work on that self-esteem, which is central to all of this. When you feel more fond of yourself and happy, you will start looking prettier whatever your weight ( and otherwise you'll be thin and just as sure you aren't pretty ) --- self-confidence is pretty. With better self-esteem and self-confidence, you will find it easier to lose weight appropriately ( enough, and not too much ; as you really don't sound over-weight at all ). And if you happen ( the psychologist will also of course check this ) to have an Anxiety Disorder, then CBT counselling is the best treatment for that, too.

Hey girl, 25 yrs + 65kgs = Beautiful. All you need is to realise that you are beautiful and need a pat on a back for maintaining that weight over worry and sleeping very little. That kind of a lifestyle will only deprive you that beauty and start developing other unwanted incidents.

Awww please, do me a favour. Overweight at 65 kgs ? Maybe if you are half a metre tall. I was 65 kgs when I was born !! I think Jones is right, you have other issues.

Did you say you r 25.65kg and you still want to loose more weight and look beautiful? Is this a normal feeling, i don' t think so. Something is wrong here and its not the weight - or is it the weight that is wrong coz i think its too low.
