The community is dying, and I think part of the reason is that calmsilverangel, who took over as moderator, has been MIA since april. Because of this, no new members have been able to join, and since some people have left, no new people are able to join to take their place. I tried to contact Livejournal to see if someone else could take over being the moderator, but thay refused and said we would have to just create a new community. I know we went through this before, but it's obvious as this point, that people aren't even posting anymore. I don't know what else can be done because I don't want this community gone...I think it's SO important, not just for me , but for people out there who are looking for support and can't join. This has been such a wonderful place and I'd hate to see it gone, and people joining other groups that may not have the same level of support and caring. I've created a new community called Bluebirds_fly I hope we can begin anew, with a different goal in mind. The naming of the community has to do with my own personal thoughts- When I think of what I want most it's to be happy. And since bluebirds are the symbol of happiness, I use their image to inspire me. I hope we can all start this community and recreate the wonderful situation we've had here. I know people are attached to the community, but it's gone and we have to face that. Please join so we can all meet there and start our community again, I really miss you girls!

I am very guilty of not posting in this community very regularly, but i really don't want to see it die.

I just feel like my ramblings are all so self-obsessed and whiney, and not any inspirational use to anyone at the moment.

So anyway, things arent too great with me right now, everything is still falling apart, and i'm still a drunk, and i'm still very down, but the difference is, i need something to hold on to. Purging dosent give me the same thing as restricting does. I cannot keep letting myself take the easy and disgusting way out.

I'm going to my first appointment at the eating disorders clinic on thursday, where i will get diagnosed and advised of appropriate treatment or whatever. I'm not worried, i WANT to recover from purging.

From midnight tonight i am fasting, for tomorrow and hopefully tuesday (depending on if i can get away with tuesday, i have many beady eyes upon me) Then it will be 300cals max a day for the rest of the week. I am going to get up at 5am and go running too.

I hope everyone is all good, i still read almost every day, but like i said, i wanted to wait till i felt a little more positive, I would get on MY nerves.

Motivation idea... [Aug. 6th, 2006|10:13 pm]

So, I threw out the take-out menus and told my husband..."no more enabling me...ie-getting me a cinnabon or asking me if I want to order out for dinner!" Also, because tonight was the start of "Celebrity Fit Club" I decided to weigh in, and every Sunday nite when it airs, I will weigh in as they do, and announce my weight. Yes, only in front of the hubby, but believe me, that's shameful for me. I hate that I've gained back all the weight I lost + 2 lbs! So, that's what I will be doing, and if some others want to join me, we can also post here each week and motivate each other. I am just sick of feeling like I'm not as good as someone else and that I will never be truly happy.

I really need a friend. Someone to fast with and talk to over AIM or email. It would be nice if we had similiar stats and goals.

I'm 5'4" or 5'5" and about 140. Anyone interested?

Just think if you spend one hour a day eating (and many people spend a lot more time than that), that is 365 hours a year. Imagine if you take that hour a day to do something else, more important, better, than eating. That is 365 hours to do something else, 365 hours that you're not spending eating. Think what you could do with that much time. It was a sudden and powerful thought to me.

ok, first things first-calmsilverangel...the moderator of this community...where are you? I've submitted for membership with my new username twice, please accept it so I can use the new name:)
Anyway, I'm doing bad...weight-wise anyway. Since I'm on the anti-anxiety andti-depressives I'm not as bothered by being fat. Which in a way is good, and in a bigger way, bad. Either way I still want to lose weight. I'm sick of not feeling sexy when my husband tells me I am. I'm not, I know I don't look good..and I want to really be sexy and feel like it's true. There was a girl in my chem class last nite who has lost 20 pounds and was talking about how good it feels to wear clothes she never thought she's fit into. I remember that feeling and it's great- way better than the taste of a cookie or french fry. So, why can't this compulsion just stop? I don't want to spend another year like this...I don't want next summer to be like this one has been, suffering in baggy, fat-hiding clothes. I'm just disgusted with myself.

Agreeing with the lack of posting.
I suppose that as long as people arent posting they arent so preoccupied with their ED. Which I suppose is a good thing.

News. Thought I was better.
Apparently, Im not.

Have swung 6lbs either way this past fortnight. Am pretty fed up at the moment, but it cant be like this forever. I think.

Off to work in a bit. Dying to go for a jog, a proper one with sweat and tears.
