Fiona - I'm 174cm tall and in this photo I'm about 67kg. I only row at the moment, I used to swim and play state level netball, basketball and tennis but my knees and ankles don't like me too much anymore. I got picked up for talent search for rowing almost 4 years ago and that's all I've done ever since. We train 13 - 15 times a week, so it's pretty full on.
would you put your health on the line for it? because thats how eating disorders start. I honestly don't think you have anymore weight to lose. I can't see any where on your body that isn't already very slim. you should put your health before anything.
