Am I anorexic or is my friend wrong?

Well, the last time I weighted myself which was today I was 95-100 pounds. I'm about 5 feet tall and I'm a twelve year old girl. I just thought I should mention that.
Anyway, recently my friend has been thinking I'm anorexic. It really annoys me because I'm not so I thought we should get someone else's opinion.
She says that she never sees me eat at school and that's because I don't eat anything at school at all. I skip breakfast and lunch every day and give my snacks to others or I just don't eat it. I try my best to make my dinner look eaten or I just say I ate to much at lunch or I'm not hungry even though I ate nothing. I never eat dessert or I chew it then spit it out and I'm starting to hate going out to dinner or getting McDonald's and stuff because I can't get out of eating it most of the time. I count ALL of my calories and I actually enjoy doing it. I never eat anything over 100 calories and I think 500 calories a day is too much even though I usually only eat 100-200 a day. I have a huge fear of gaining weight and am constantly weighing or wanting to weigh myself. Every time I look it the mirror I see a fat person even though everyone else says I'm skinny and I think my life would be better if I was skinny. My dad always tells us to get in shape and criticized how much I used to eat and says we'll never be good until we can control ourselves. And my life is kinda depressing. I also read somewhere that you aren't anorexic unless you're underweight for your gender, age, and height or something and I'm not underweight so I can't be anorexic! I'm just dieting to lose weight! I think my friend is wrong, but please give your honest opinion. so am I anorexic?

500 caleries a day your joking me... please raise that bar by at least another 500 but you are at good weight, a little under but there is no problem with weight

Try to get a normal amount of calories per day. It's not healthy to do what you are doing plus you are way to young to start worrying about your weight.
