Hello Warrior131,

Welcome!! I understand what you are saying about listening to your body. I hope you find this place very welcoming. As for your questions, I am not sure I understand but I am also really tired right now so it might be just me. Feel free to ask me anything and add me as a spark friend.

everybody has a different body chemistry to how their body reacts to food....whether its weight gain or loss...

I struggled for a longtime, tried many different diets, exercise programs and routines only to give up not long after because i found it didnt work for me...

i did learn something quite by accident though...i learned to listen to WHAT my body is craving or wanting...before this i was unaware of what or how much i stuck in my mouth...i was and am an emotional compulsive over eater...

binging still happens from time to time... but after i began paying attention to WHAT my body was craving and what i was putting in my mouth (restriction) eating and calorie counting...

I learned a lot from a ana website before i got kicked off... emoticon (LOL) and dang it i REALLY liked it there!!! emoticon

Anyway I was very afraid to join another site after that...they were about support, i never felt judged and when i messed up i got unrestricted support... emoticon i was overwhelmed by what i saw here...{plus there arent ant emoticons for frustrated, confused, or angry} me crying is a weakness and i find a lot of people do it to manipulate...I cant stand that... Im a very forward spoken person. Dont mean to hurt anyone and im pretty much live and let live with my personality...
someday's i feel so aggravated with myself and just want to express myself...not to be a negative sport or party pooper raining on everyones parade, but I feel very emotionally about what my body is going through..some days im not nice, somedays i have a nasty attitude...not often but somedays its there...I never put anyone else down and it takes a lot for me to get angry especially at someone else...but for me its all a very personal thing... this isnt a party for me, its my secret battle that everyone can see...i want to hide. Its painful for me and i am sorry if i seem angry or ugly about it. I know i am the only one that can change my body...

I changed my life. my lifestyle, my everything...ive lost almost 100 lbs so battle continues. Now its time to anti up for me... i changed the way i ate, my foods i ate, I learned what chemistry works for me and i restocked the entire house...

was on my way to success and ready to begin an exercise routine that would work for my body and the seasons of the year because of my arthritis and lazy ass Ive become, plus i HATE winter... I know I have to do something, anything to get active again... I know so much so far and have still so much i DONT know. I need help, support, and to feel like this is my home... I have so many things in my life it is hard to put it all in at once.
I have some questions for anyone that is still willing to talk to me, after my little intro...
1# Do we have a personal progress section?
2#. How do we keep up with our posts?
3#. Is there anything im not allowed to say or do on here?
