Congratulations for stopping your eating disorder behaviors. Unfortunately, you still sound like you are pretty obsessed with your weight. You said yourself that you think you'd start back with your old ways if you gain some weight. That's a problem. You have listed several different weights at different times, and they are fairly close together for the average person. I think you still have some of the old thought processes working in the background. What really stands out to me is the complete lack of any explanation as to why you want to go off of the Zoloft. You may not feel depressed anymore, but did you ever stop to think that maybe it's the Zoloft just doing its job? Why alter the playing field now, what is different in your life? Just something to think about. Personally, I wouldn't change or stop the meds without a really good reason. For example, stopping meds when they feel normal is a classic problem for people with Bi-Polar disorder. They stop taking their Lithium when they feel better, and the next thing you know, they are talking to people that aren't there, acting out in outrageous ways, or hiding in their closet/not getting out of bed. I have witnessed this a number of times with both a cousin and a friend. I'm a firm believer in "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". Please discuss this issue with your prescribing physician. You don't want to make a move that you are not truly ready for.
Good luck to you, and let us know how things are going.
I think you would benefit from visiting wiith a professional. I would not stop the med without talking to your Doctor and also make sure you have your eating disorder under control before you ever get pregnant because nutrition will play an important role in a pregnancy.
