  1. Good for you! As a fellow ED sufferer, I can say it's HUGE that you're doing it the healthy way. I have been learning how to let go of obsessing myself! Keep it up!
  2. I feel like such a creep but I've been reading your story over and over for years. I finally decided to take the plunge and start heavy lifting yesterday, after months of bodyweight exercises. Thank you for being such an inspiration, and I hope I see some of those awesome results myself!

  3. I have been doing body weight exercises for a couple months now and have seen a lot of progress (I can do 10 full pushups now, YAY!) But I keep reading Staci's story again and again (seriously, been reading it on repeat for years) and I finally feel ready to tackle the world of power lifting. I came to the realization that nothing makes me feel better than lifting. Cardio is ok, but I prefer to get it in the form of a Farmer Walk! I can't wait to start seeing some real results and ROCK my wedding dress in September!
  4. Hey fellow Rebels! I have been hanging around this site for quite some time, but haven't really been "ready" to post till now. I'm at a point where I feel like a sack of flour every day - fatigued, lazy, listless, weak, and soft. Oh, and like flour, I feel HEAVY! I'm about 25lbs overweight, and desperately want to change that. I come from an obese family (I'm talking people who weigh around 300lbs) and I'm terrified of allowing myself to fall into the same mindset. Before I met my SO, I was a LOT more motivated. I hired a personal trainer, was working out at least 4 days a week, and was at
  5. "A faeire trapped in a Hobbit's body..." I don't have any advice for you, seeing as I'm new to this myself...but I sure love your writing style, and think you would be someone I would sit down to coffee (or tea? or gallons of wine?) with XD You sound awesome, and I know you're gonna be able to beat this thing!
  6. That sounds rough, but you can do it! Baby steps... I would suggest going for walks around the block, taking the stairs, and parking a little farther away from the door when shopping. Bit by bit, you can work exercise into your routine. Do your kids play video games? You could purchase a Wii fit and play with them - family fitness! Or pick up a dance game and bust a move! You can get there!
  7. JPrev, I never really saw it that way before... as a system simply needing to gain that sustained focus. I consistently beat myself up when I slip up, and it always just degrades to the point where I am back on the couch eating pizza and watching hours of Futurama. I miss that focus I had only a few short months ago, and that's a great reminder to find it again! I have had therapy for my ED in a sense.. I have a great support network who knows about it, and have outreached to folks on the internet. For the most part, I have it under control (it was baaad a few years ago), but like I said, I
  8. Ready to get this ball rolling!

  9. Hi there! Sorry about the dramatic title, but it had to be done. I was gonna do something cutesy, maybe even incorporate some kind of nerd title in here, but I'm to the point of brutal honesty in my life and know I need to lay out all my dirty laundry right off the bat if I want to succeed. I'm a 25-year-old gal living in the big city. I have a full-time job as a Graphic Designer; and as such, I'm on my arse pretty much 10 hours a day (if you count the time spent driving to and from work). I don't live a sedentary lifestyle, but pretty close. I exercise a few times a week, but lately I've b
  10. Hungry.... darn it.
