Sometimes I feel at my wits end. I'm 36, have been ana since I was 21. The past year has been incredibly difficult losing and keeping weight off. I don't have the motivation I did when I was younger. I just want someone to talk to who understands how important your daily number is in making you happy. Hw 136, cw 99, gw 90.

35, Long time ED & similar stats. I feel you. It like you have to level up to achieve the same results. I never pictured this is where life would take me.

there is never a sudden revelation, a complete and tidy explanation for why it happened, or why it ends, or Why or Who you are. you want one and I want one, but there isn't one. it comes in bits and pieces, and you stitch them together wherever they fit, and when you are done you hold yourself up, and still there are holes and you are a rag doll, invented, imperfect. and yet you are all that you have, so you must be Enough. there is no other way.
