This is a large group, but posting is infrequent.
I worry that my blog-length post, where I'm basically talking myself into a healthier lifestyle, is clogging things up on this board - that many of you open the page, see that post at the top and think oh, nothing new happening here.
Just ignore my ranting and raving. I can't afford real therapy so I'm basically doing it myself. And doing it publicly keeps me accountable. But I hope to God I'm not discouraging anyone else from posting.
And, seriously, what I'm seeing in six months here is that people post once and then vanish. There will be a heartfelt :I have to make a change'; post, but very rarely any followup. Why? Let's talk about what we need, here, to make this our safe place, and make this a place where we can help each other out.
What do you need this page to be? What has stopped you from posting more?
Hi! I'm a mother of 2, 35 years, and I've been bingin since I was 19. I've been overweight all my life, not much, but enough to be the chubby friend.

And it's very difficult for me, because I feel lucky to have all these goodness in my life,...
Hey Everyone,I am new to this group, I just wanted to get a little feedback for those of you who actively post. What is the general dynamic of what you all are going through? Is this mostly binge eating? annorexia? bullimia? If anyone can share I'd greatly appreciate it!
