Subject:Weight loss reviews
Posted by:fripper91.
Time:9:13 pm.
Mood: excited.
I just stumbled across this review site. The Lipo 6 reviews I read on this page is actually really good, better than the ones I use to read. I like reading reviews about weight loss products because I have struggled with weight problems for years and there is actually some very good tips in reviews.

Here's the site, hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.

Subject:Eating disorder bloggers wanted for survey
Posted by:rachelr59.
Time:12:22 pm.
I am a current graduate student researching the social history of food-related disorders, inspired, in large part, from my own struggles with anorexia and bulimia.  I'm conducting an anonymous survey of bloggers who blog about eating disorders or eating disorder recovery in partnership with a clinical psychologist for joint research and publication purposes.

I'm hoping our survey generates lots of responses so that our findings are well-rounded, inclusive and convincing.  The only two requirements are that you must have an active blog and that it must address, at least in part, your experiences with an eating disorder.  I'm hoping for responses from people of all ages and genders who are in all stages of recovery and who suffer from a diversity of eating disorders, from anorexia to binge eating disorder to ed-nos to orthorexia. 

If the scope of the study pertains to your own experiences, I invite you to participate by taking it.  More information and a survey link can be found here or http://the-f-word.org/blog/index.php/2008/03/23/eating-disordered-bloggers-wanted-for-survey/

Thank you!

Subject:Guhhh
Posted by:boxfish.
Time:12:00 am.
I've started a new job just last week, and mostly all I eat is a little bit of veggies (lettuce, carrot, tomato, cucumber, olive... it's what I prepare at work) until about five-six.pm every day. So I'm really only eating one full meal at night, after work, and I hate it! I need to eat dinner or else my father will be grouchy with me... but the good thing is that I tell him that I've eaten breakfast and lunch, too, so he leaves me alone about that.

But eating only one meal a day is horrible. I'm really trying to start boosting my metabolism by eating smaller meals, not just three times a day but more, maybe six or seven times. The salad that I have is seventy calories for one bowl, and that fills me up for quite a while, so even if I ate that ten times a day, I'd still stay under my calorie consumption for the day.

Instead of this really awesome idea, instead I've been coming home from work and having pizza or pasta or something gross like that. I can't help myself, but I haven't been purging at all because it never makes me feel TOO full. I haven't purged in weeks. I'd rather stay away from it, though, but I can't stop myself from eating the crap I that eat. I'd rather stick to my salads and veggie dogs and mmm garlic.

Did you know that apple tastes absolutely wonderful in salad?

Time:9:58 pm.

I'm not doing so well.  See, I ate a whole meal today, and I'm feeling really guilty about it cause I've put on tons of weight recently and I just wanna be like 100 pounds again, or even 110.

Only I can't throw up what I just ate cause my sister is in the house and she'll hear me, I'm sure.  Plus I'm so sick of purging all the time, it just makes me feel like crap.

I feel so FUCKING FAT.

Time:8:42 pm.

1. Name:  Lauren
2. Age:  21
3. Occupation:  Student
4. Hobbies:  Reading, writing, yoga, figure skating.
5. What is your disorder, and how long have you had it?:  I've never thought about the label really but I guess I'm ED-NOS.  When I moved out of my family home, I became anorexic, got a lot better, stopped eating again then developed bulimia.  Right now I'm somewhere between the two.
6. Height: 5"4
7. Current weight:  119
8. Highest weight: 125
9. Lowest weight: 98
10. Goal weight (this includes short and long term goals): 100
11. How far has this disorder taken you in your life (medical issues? discovery of the illness? recovery?)?:  It hasn't so much affected me physically (other than the obvious things like lack of energy and stomach cramps) as emotionally.  All I think about is food, all the time.  It terrifies me.  My boyfriend is on constant food patrol to make sure I don't lose tons of weight again.

Upon joining this community, wont you please answer a few questions so as we can all get to know you?
1. Name:Heather
2. Age: 17
3. Occupation:Homeschooled
4. Hobbies:Music, Singing, keeping things neat and orderly.
5. What is your disorder, I've gone from bulimia two years ago..to anorexia in 2006.
6. Height: 5'7"
7. Current weight:115
8. Highest weight:150
9. Lowest weight:109
10. Goal weight (this includes short and long term goals):
It is a short term goal for me to get back down to my lowest weight and my long term goal is to stay there.
11. How far has this disorder taken you in your life (medical issues? discovery of the illness? recovery?)?: My electrolytes have been all out of whack and my potassium has been a problem. I am iron defficient. I've recently come home from  an inpatient facility that really didn't do much for me except shove food down my throat and fluff me up a few pounds. I manipulated my school nurse into weighing me on my first day back at school and i had a breakdown when I saw the number on the scale..I couldn't believemy eyes. So the past couple of weeks my weight has been going back down..which gives my ED some satisfaction. Soon I'll be on my way to residential. I'm suppose to get a phonecall when there's a bed open.

1. Name: Carmen
2. Age: 21
3. Occupation: Stay-at-home mom for now..I was in college full-time when I found out I was pregnant..when my daughter is around 6 mos I'm going to look for a part-time job, and I'm hoping to go back to school this fall.
4. Hobbies: Drawing, painting, reading..exercising =P
5. What is your disorder, and how long have you had it?: ED-NOS..I've always had issues with weight. In 6th grade I barely ate, and it just got worse from then on..2 years ago I was full-on bulimic and anorexic. I almost never ate, and when I did I would throw it up. For now, it's just heavy restricting and exercising..I'm hoping not to slip back into bulimia.
6. Height: 64in
7. Current weight: 172
8. Highest weight: 214 (right before giving birth)
9. Lowest weight: 127
10. Goal weight (this includes short and long term goals):
STG1: 140 by May 1
STG2: 125 by Aug 1
LTG: 105
11. How far has this disorder taken you in your life (medical issues? discovery of the illness? recovery?)?: A couple years back, after having thrown up for a few months straight, I had to have my gall bladder removed. When I explained to them that I was bulimic, they said that it had more than likely been a big factor in causing my problem. =/ Discovery..I told my mom when we were drunk on Christmas lol. Go me. She doesn't seem to think all my "dieting" is a big deal, though. I can pretty much openly discuss it with her, she hasn't noticed how obsessive I'm getting. If I start fasting, though, I'm pretty sure I'll keep her in the dark. My boyfriend knows everything, and while he doesn't condone it, I guess there isn't really much he could do. He deals. When he found out I was throwing up a couple years back, though, he pretty much forbade it and watched me like a hawk. He's a good guy. =)
So, that's me. I'm trying to reach out now because I could really use the support of like-minded people. I've lost 40 lb since Nov 11, and I'm hoping to lose about 70 more (ouch!) in the next year. So...hello!

1. Name: Kate
2. Age: 16
3. Occupation: I work concession stand/cash register at our local movie theater.
4. Hobbies: Writing, drawing, walking around town, partying. Normal teenage things.
5. What is your disorder, and how long have you had it?: Bulimia, three and a half years. Before that it was COE, for three years.
6. Height: 5'4"
7. Current weight: I think around 135 lbs. My scale isn't accurate though.
8. Highest weight: 150 lbs at 5'2"
9. Lowest weight: 120 lbs.
10. Goal weight (this includes short and long term goals): Short term - 110 lbs. Long term - Whenever I feel comfortable with myself.
11. How far has this disorder taken you in your life (medical issues? discovery of the illness? recovery?)?:

Oh, gosh...Medical issues aren't too bad, to be honest. One of my fillings fell out once, and my teeth are a little splotchy, but I try to take pretty good care of them. I have stomach ulcers, but I don't mind because it keeps me from eating. I think that's all my medical issues that came from my eating disorder.

The discovery was a bunch of bullshit (excuse the language). I forgot to make a post private on my Livejournal, and somehow one of my mom's friends found it and told her about it. She didn't even really seem to care. So now we just go about our daily business and never talk about it. She never once mentioned it after that day.

Recovery...hmm. What a strange concept. Today is the first day in a loooooooooong time, like a year and a half, that I've actually acted on my impulses to purge. But there was NEVER a day that went by that I didn't feel like sticking my head down a toilet. I just held out as long as I could. But this keeps eating at me. I suppose I shouldn't let it, but I'm very easily manipulated, even by myself.

Subject:purpose
Posted by:chainedflower.
Time:11:40 pm.
sigh...
i been thinking too much today about life in general. what is my purpose? is it really in my plans to destroy myself for the time i was alotted on this earth? - if so why? why do i feel that i have to put myself thru pain when others have done so much worse than i have in my lifetime and they dont do what i do or even consider it. i sometimes try to picture myself normal but normal is so distorted now. i have no clue what normal is anymore. but really , does anyone know what normal is. who sets the standards for normal? i dont think anyone knows what normal is but we all seem to deffinately know for sure what abnormal is. abnormal is just an opinion i think. what i think is abnormal is someone elses norm and what my "normal" is is something someone else would think to be crazy or "abnormal" life is so confusing and im rambling sorry..... but anyway i was thinking about what i do in my everyday life and i realized its not a whole freakin lot. its very repetitive and predictable. i do the same things everyday. i get up in the morning, work out. i go to work i fry chicken and tators for 8-10 hours and then work out. i come home i write i think i fall asleep (at some point) thats probably the only think that varies from day to day when i fall asleep if i fall asleep. i cant keep a steady boyfriend because that would disrupt my work out time. i want excitement in my life, love in my life but that would make me happy. im afraid of something i want so terribly bad. so then i wonder if there's something else i could do to hurt myself worse to make up for that happiness i could have. like a trade off. what if i cut my calories in half down to 400 instead of 800? maybe then could i stay with a boyfriend? -but what if i become too happy... too comfortable... will i forget about ed? will she disapear? i think thats what im afraid of i want her and a significant other but she wants to be #1 and cant bare the thought of having to share my attention. she wont have that. Cant i have 2 #1's is that possible? i think it could be i just have to be given a chance. - back to purpose-- what is my purpose in this life besides destruction- is that it? i was born to die? This cant be it........
