I recovered from an eating disorder

Last year, I recovered from an eating disorder. It was not severe enough to be called anorexia, but I had a warped body image and purposefully ate less so that I would lose weight. I was underweight, but through my parents’ help, I gained enough weight so that I was average weight. Now, I no longer am obsessed with my weight, but when I weigh myself and see that I have gained a pound or two (which is normal seeing as I am only 14) I feel the urge to cut myself or starve myself. I have these kinds of thoughts often even though I am nowhere near being overweight and I have many people around me who love for me and care about me. I don’t know how to stop having these thoughts. Please help…
