It took me years to find Project Shapeshift and I thought Ana's Underground Grotto was long gone. But it is still there :) Probably the only site from 2001 still active. A site for restricting adults.

 

 I was active at Pretty Thin, Disordered Family, Post Pro Ana, Neo Pro Ana, THIN, and other sites from 2009-2010. Before that I visited non English language sites. And got hold of fragments from the Grotto :)

 

Actually I found P S - Evo before finding Project Shapeshift 

 

Then of course worth mentioning is Thin Pages and Thin Forum as they were in 2001-2002 :) Still accessible if you use Wayback Machine

I remember Blue Dragonfly and PrettyThin. There were other ones too. I remember one site where they had all of this negative-talk thinspo way back in the day. God it was so long ago but feels like yesterday. I remember sites where they would just straight up have lists of proana tips. It was the wild west back then.

 

I almost exclusively used PT and one day I stumbled into this hideous reverse thinspo chat room where they were all just ragging on each other for having eaten half an apple in three days, calling each other awful things and sending pictures of their faces badly stuck on larger (not even, like, morbidly obese) bodies. It was... odd.

Haha Yes you could say that PT had it all. Really bad sides as well as really good and all in between, 

It puzzled me that many members hated the site. Why stay if you don't like it, Why not start a new!?

That sounds hilarious. I think I vaguely remember witnessing that sort of thing. It was so long ago.

I was mostly on recovery sites in the past, and was on a number of Yahoo groups in the late 90's.  About a year ago Yahoo deleted all of the groups that were part of their "Groups" service, so it's sad to think that all of that old content is gone forever now.

 

However, five or six us from the original pre-2000 group we were on are still in touch on a regular basis, and still hang out together and share our lives as a web friends.

 

I mean, people were 17 and 18 then, and are in their mid-to-late 30's now. 

 

I find it encouraging that friendships can last like that.

Lol that’s so true, I left the pro-ana scene mid/late-
2000s and when I came back and found MPA as pretty much the only game in town I was honestly sort of shocked... first just because all those sites all closed down which was was weird, and second because it’s not actually pro-ana lol

I miss LB so much. I went on there every day at my small boarding school. Sometimes a few fragments from a thread will pop into my memory for no reason. ...I guess I am more nostalgic for youth/boarding school than LB actually...

Care to share your screen name on there??

What about AnorexicWeb, which was theoretically a recovery site from some sort of staff member that worked in an EDU trying to “warn” people about the dangers of anorexia by posting some of the most extreme thinspo I’ve ever seen lmao

I loved ana friends - I became really good friends with someone I'm still in touch with but we live a few counties apart so only met up once at the time.

 

Also loved Ana's Underground Grotto especially the introduction. I still find it really empowering. Pleased to see it's still around :)
