I totally agree with you about 'free' foods. All foods need to be accounted for. A couple large apples can have the same calories as ice cream.
I congratulate you on your overcoming the eating disorder. Being too thin has much the same issues as being obese.
Best wishes on getting fit and healthy!
Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.
I'm returning to Spark after a break. I originally joined Spark People while recovering from an eating disorder. The food tracker helped me monitor whether I was eating enough food.
I am now fully recovered, and my metabolism was really affected by my illness. So, now I've got a few pounds to lose, which is hard for me to admit.
I briefly tried weight watchers, and quickly realized that their policy about free fruit is silly. You've got to account for those calories. I was skeptical from the beginning, but it seems to work for a lot of people. However, I've read that the newest point system is getting a lot of complaints from long term members. Also, Spark People is more flexible, and I like that.
I am happy to be back at Spark, and I look forward to participating in this team!
`Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?'
`That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,' said the Cat.
`I don't much care where--' said Alice.
`Then it doesn't matter which way you go,' said the Cat.
It's good to set goals! :-)
