How can I feel comfortable with how I'm eating?

Recently, I was restricting a lot when it came to my food and dropped a significant amount of weight. I even lost my period and this had going on for a few months. Now that I have realized what I was doing I have tried to creating complete meals for myself to eat but in the past three days I have just grabbed everything I could eat in my kitchen and just ate everything without even thinking. I did this for three days so far and the first two days it was to the point of uncomfortableness and the third day was just enough to keep me full. I'm scared that I am starting to binge on everything but I can't tell if it's just because my body hasn't been getting enough to eat. I'm still scared about what I'm eating but I don't want to be. Honestly, I just want to feel comfortable in my body without thinking I look ugly or "fat" and not be so scared of food all the time however, I also don't want to continue eating all the food I can find in my house mindlessly.
