I apologize if this isn't allowed, but I was wondering if there was a community on here of women who struggle with an eating disorder. It can be so difficult to log food and stay in a healthy mindset, especially once numbers get involved. I'd love support from others to track healthily and stay in a good headspace while still accomplishing goals and staying "on track," so if there are any others or perhaps a private group (I know I was on one when I quit smoking) please let me know, it would be immensely helpful!
My therapist told me that we are like canaries at the mouth of the cave in mining camps. They were put there because they get sick from released fumes when the miners don't, so they served as a tool for the miners. She said dieting was similar to people like me. Most people have no problem (mentally), like the miners, but I am like the canary. I'd love support from other canaries, and I think we could be stronger together.
For a background on me, I am 30 and was mostly average as a teen, then gained weight in my early twenties. I lost the weight twice, the second time the "healthy way" but I still struggle.
Thanks I'm advance for your help and community.
