♥ This is NOT a pro-ana, pro-mia, pro-ednos or pro-ANY-ed community. It is an online support group... If you are looking for tips/tricks/etc, do not bother requesting to join.
♥ If we suspect that you are here only looking for a quick way to lose a few pounds, you will be deleted without warning. This is a community for people who have an eating disorder. This is NOT a community for people looking to "catch" one.
♥ Picture posts are allowed and welcome. We love seeing progress pics, or just simply putting a face to a name. But if you do post pictures - do it behind a cut. If you don't know how, then ask.
♥ No "thinspiration" pictures of celebrities or models. We've seen enough, and if you really feel the need to post them, do so in your own journal.
♥ All posts including food or calorie talk must be placed under a cut - we do not want to trigger our members.
♥ Posts that fall under the "Not Following Rules" category (ie. posts with un-cut pictures, thinspiration, food/calorie talk, pro-ed tips, etc.) will be deleted without warning. Post like this more than once, and your posting privilages will be revoked.
♥ Be civil and courteous. Harassment, abuse, rudeness, etc. will NOT be tolerated. Break this rule and you will be kicked out of the community without warning.
