That sounds a lot like the very beginning of an ED. You're right, it isn't "technically" classified as anorexia or bulimia, but regardless, you should still address it before it becomes a bigger problem. It's actually better to identify it now rather than when you have a full-blown ED. Is there someone that you really trust that you can go talk to? I really think you should try and find help before you're stuck in the absolute HELL that is an ED.
