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,
Brenda


One of my favorite Bible verses: Jeremiah 29:11

NEVER EVER give up or give in.

Smiling helps the sadness go away.

Oh wow, I hadn't even been on the sight long enough to figure out there were message boards hiding too! I appreciate it, thanks guys.

My goal is not everyone's and I hope I'm not making anyone uncomfortable being here. I'm 18 years eating disordered and finally making the effort, with a whole lot of help, to be healthy and live.

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 eating.......in 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.

it doesnt matter if you run slowly.........you are still running faster than someone on the couch!!!

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.

Anyone?

My goal is not everyone's and I hope I'm not making anyone uncomfortable being here. I'm 18 years eating disordered and finally making the effort, with a whole lot of help, to be healthy and live.
