What do I do?

I've never been one to worry about boy sizes or shapes, but recently I've been receiving comments from my siblings about how I'm apparently out of breath walking up stairs or about how much I eat. They also play a game where every time I eat they make sound effects. At first it didn't bother me much it just siblings until my sister began borrowing my clothes and posting on facebook about how baggy my tips are on her. Then my mum bought me a pair of trousers size 12 this broke my heart because I'm a size 6-8. I know I shouldn't have but I felt awkward eating in front of my family so I wouldn't eat breakfast or dinner after about a week I noticed I wasn't getting hunger as often  but then I began feeling awkward and guilty eating at school in front of my friends I began obsessing looking at pictures of skinny bodies and wish I had them. I lost a lot of weight from 55kg's to 47 kg's throughout the time I wasn't eating as I was also exercising too much to stop the guilt. But now I'm trying to stop losing weight as I have been getting dizzy and faint, but no matter how hard I try I just can't eat a normal amount of food without making myself sick. What should I do? How to I get back to a normal eating pattern?  Many thanks Broken_strings
