Ugh! Every time I eat my stomach bloats up hugely!
No matter what I eat. It always does.
I eat 1,200-1,300 calories now and occasionally have cheat days and eat 1,600 calories.
The only exercise I do is jogging in place for an hour everyday and yoga...
I drink 8 cups of water a day.
I don't get why I'm so bloated all the time ): I used to be really bloated when I restricted and was underweight but now its just gotten worse since i eat now!
Why is this happening ): will it ever go away? I've been eating more for ( it'll be ) almost a year!

You're undereating and overexerciding... bloating is the least of your worries.
because you're under eating.
You're still recovering and you're still not eating enough.
You're over excercising because you're not eating enough to sustain basic body function, and then you're going ahead and excercising on top.
You have damaged your metabolism and need to recover properly. You're a teen! You should be eating 2000 calories a day, not 1200!
jogging for an hour + yoga is ridiculous if you're only eating 1200 cal. Actually, even if you were sedentary, 1200 wouldn't be enough.

You need to eat more than 1500 calories. 2000. Got it? Thats a 2 with three zeros!!
And you will be bloated for a while til your body figures out whats going on. Its part of what you've done to yourself.
But what you should do, is go through real recovery with therapy and doctors first, and then you can eat 2000 or whatever really and excercise and go to school, do yoga, whatever you want.
Sorry. In a slightly bad mood at the present time, I know you will find this harsh but I want to get through to you before we lose you. You seem like a really special girl.
Yes, you may be bloated while your body is adjusting.
But you need more than that. I am lightly active (which is probably what you would be just going to school and doing yoga), 23 years old, and eat 1000 more than that just to maintain.
Stop trying to seek reassurance from everyone here. You're starving, and your brain is starved. Your brain is not in a recovered place. Talk to a doctor to get correct information regarding calories, not just people on the internet.

You are joking, right?
In case it was not clear enough... you have made it very clear to all of us that your brain is in an EXTREMELY disordered place.
