! you MUST be 18 or older to join this community.
! This community's intention is for support, and support only. We do not "encourage" eating disorders. If you're just looking for a quick way to drop 5 pounds, this isn't the place for you.
! I have recently changed the community to an open membership. Which means, anyone can join, however if i start to see that people are turning this into a pro- ed site i will either block them from posting or go back to a moderated membership.
! Picture posts are definitely allowed. We love seeing progress pics, or just simply putting a face to a name. PLEASE remember to do it behind a cut. If you don't know how, then ask. "Thinspiration" pictures of celebrities or models are NOT allowed, however. There's only so much airbrushing that we can take. Please keep those in your personal journals.
! ALL POSTS THAT INCLUDE FOOD/MENUS/CALORIES MUST BE PUT UNDER THE CUT AS TO NOT TRIGGER ANY OTHER MEMBERS!!!
! Please don't bother making posts with questions and advice on which diet pills are best or what is the easiest way to purge b/c they will be deleted. We're sick of seeing those posted over and over and over and over again!
