IF you are REALLY eating healthy and exercising then your muscle is making you heavier which is good, if you are here asking about this then I suppose you can't notice your muscles because the fat that is covering them. IF YOU ARE REALLY doing what you say then don't worry, you'll in fact gain more weight but that's because you are creating more muscle so you have muscle and fat at the same time, it'll get to a point where your muscles will start to burn fat and you'll start to lose the pounds like nothing if you keep eating healthy and exercising.

No, laxatives do NOT help you lose weight. Not real weight, that is. Sure, you'll lose some water weight, but that is temporary and unhealthy. Laxatives work at the stuff in your lower intestines- calories are absorbed before they even get to the large intestines, meaning anything that you poop out from taking laxatives has already been digested and would have come out anyway. Plus, if you take laxatives long term, you'll become dependent on them and you will be unable to have a bowel movement without them.

You're forcing your body to do things it's not supposed to do with pills. Throwing up is healthier than that, you'll mess up your bowls an intestines. Laxatives aren't something to be messed with, you don't wanna permanently mess yourself up.

eat four meals with chopsticks instead of a fork slowing down can help you consume about 25 fewer calories per meal

Because they don't make you lose weight except for the fecal matter in your colon and that will be replaced in a day or two, it's not much weight anyway, and it's not going to improve your appearance. What that leads to is more laxatives to lose that same weight over again and again. Laxative abuse leads to a "lazy" colon which will not process chyme properly and you can end up with a host of maladies such as IBS, spastic colitis, chronic diarrhea, and other painful and serious conditions of the colon. If you've considered it, you should consider talking to your parents or school nurse or doctor about your problem. If you have EDNOS, you will need help because you won't be able to trust your own mind...your own judgement. Seek help if you're underweight. Your health depends on it. Good luck and good health!! ♠
