Hi MJAX83,
Welcome to Spark, emoticon

You will find a variety of people on this site. Most are willing to help you and encourage you.

Join some groups, usually find lots of encouragement there.

I am serious when I say this,'I am not trying to lose weight either.' I am however, hoping some of my weight will fall off of me.....REALLY :o)

Start friending some people and open up your page so some of us can stop by to say hello.

Good luck and blessings to you,

i am a long distance runner who uses this site to make sure that i am getting the right balance of foods and sufficient calories to maintain............left to my own devices i will slip into disordered my mind lower weight equals more lean muscle equals faster longer runs........i have to remember that my body will begin eating itself if i dont give it enough proper nutrition to eat.

Welcome to Spark People ! This website isn't just for people trying to lose weight. It's for people learning to live a healthier lifestyle. And having a healthy relationship should be part of that lifestyle. Have you checked out the Spark teams ? There are teams dedicated to members who are recovering from eating disorders.

I'm just a day into this site, was directed here by my doctor. I'm not trying to loose weight, but rather recover from an 18 year old eating disorder. I know there are places just for that on the interwebs, but most are very triggering to me.

My short term goals at this point are very modest
A) don't die
B) stay out of inpatient therapy

I'm 30, American, married and living overseas. Most support networks I've found exclude me on different levels, some of my own making...not speaking the language of the country I'm in. Being so damned old for a young person's disease. Kids. Being too far away to attend meetings.

Anyhow, I'm really hoping to find a kindred spirit, or a group of them here. I hope I'm in the right place, because I love everything about this place so far.

I am very serious in my quest for some kind of normalcy (also:staying alive) but I'm not at a point where I can do this alone yet.
