Hi, i just wanted to take a minute and introduce myself, ive been lurking for a while. My name is Bree, and im 24, I have 2 little boys, Ross who is 16 months and Will who is 5 weeks old. I suffered with bulimia, mostly laxative abuse and some periods of anorexia.

Since having my second son i have been having some unhealthy thoughts, i am at my lowest weight since highschool and I am happy with my weight and my body but i find myself obsessing with staying at that specific weight and obsessing over foods, I could really use some support because i know these thoughts are not healthy or normal

anyways i look forward to getting to know you all and being an active member

welcome! I'm sorry for the rough time you're going through - i'm right there with you right now as well.

my name is alethia, 28, DS is 4 and DD is almost 16 months. I have suffered with anorexia, bulimia and ednos for since i was 11 ... i had 13 years that were really hard ups and downs and then 4 years of recovery with some slips right now i wouldn't say that i'm in recovery. It's been a 17 year journey and like you i feel really alone in it at the moment. no one IRL i can speak with about it - like i have been able to in the past.

the board is slow, mostly lurkers - which i understand. i hope that you feel free to post here as much as you want - vents, concerns, questions - anything.... i'll try to do better too.

Again, welcome - and i'm so glad you finally gave your intro!

Hi there...I am Ashlee...I am 26 and have two boys....WAIT A MINUTE! I know you

Bree, feel free to PM me or message me on Facebook any old time. I 'was' anorexic for 6 years of my life and in treatment pretty much those whole 6 years (15-21). I continue to see my counselor and struggle with weight/eating/dieting thoughts on a regular basis. I am at a higher weight and am constantly at odds with myself, knowing I am healthier here than I was before, but still wanting to be small like I once was. Sometimes the eating disorder and thoughts feels like a bad dream...and sometimes it is still very real. I find I struggle more after a life stress (um, adding a new baby anyone??) and get a little more obsessive about it.

But seriously, I know what it feels like and how many folks don't understand what it is like. I am here to support you!
