I'm not new to this site, but I am new to this community. I have had issues with food and eating disorders for 1/2 of my life. I'm trying desperately to find a "happy medium" and need some help. I also belong to the Eating Disorders community, but am finding recently that it's only helping to keep me down. I love the people I've met there, but I am not finding what I really need. What I'm looking for is someone, or someones, to be in touch with on a regular basis who will help to hold me accountable for my actions, who will help to motivate me to make the right choices and who will offer a sense of support in finding the new, healthy me. While I do suffer from ED, I am not thin. I am actually considered obese. Not morbidly, or even close to that, but still...having that label is a horrible feeling. I want to feel good about my body again. I have finally dealt with my main underlying issues with my disorder(s) and have found a very happy place in my life. I finally want to love myself, I have a wonderful husband of 2 years (been together for 9), and two beautiful children (my son is almost 12, and my daughter is 1). We're a very close and happy family. I'm just finding that no matter how happy i am with the rest of my life, it isn't so easy to have a good body image. Is there anyone here who wouldn't mind taking me on as a "buddy" to support each other in our efforts? I know I must sound very needy right now, but I'm really not. I'm just frustrated with hearing all of the negatives and need a "partner" who will show me some of the positives....

Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
