    Wow! I am definitely impressed and inspired. Well, to begin, thank you for replying to my message. I have been away from my blog for a week and just got back to it today. I ran across you blog randomly one day. Normally, when I finish a blog and see it in a new window, I click the “next blog” button and am steered to random blogs. Yours caught my attention immediately because I had never seen anything like it before. I have an eating disorder – I eat too much. As a result, I’ve put on a lot of weight. Now, I am at the point where I can feel my health plummeting and I know I’ve got to make some changes now, or else I could make myself very sick. That’s part of what prompted me to write to you. Your diet is similar to the one I “dream” of adapting into my new lifestyle: whole grains, fruits and veggies (raw and cooked), and other yummy & healthy foods. The good thing is that I’ve been healthy before, so I know what it looks and feels like. Now it’s just a matter of maintaining that disciplined, healthy lifestyle. I’ll be dropping by your blog from time to time to get ideas for myself.

    Thanks for your reply. Sorry if this seems rushed. I’m sooooo sleepy. It was a long, and fun Christmas. I hope yours was nice, too.

    Good night.

    Thank you so much for doing this blog. I too have suffered from an eating disorder for the past twelve years or so. I attempted to get help in college but it didn’t really change anything. I am not sure if I will ever truly be healed. I do eat about 1800 calories a day, yet I am still restricting and end up eating all of my calories at the end of the day. There really is no explanation for this. I think that it is part of the disease. It is so nice to be able to get this all out in the open, because it is so shameful for me to talk about it with my family. I feel like a disappointment to them. I have exceled in every other area of my life, yet I cannot get this area under control. Thank you for the great blog. I often wonder if doing something like this would force me to face my demons.

    Hello my anonymous blogger! I’m glad you found my blog and are enjoying reading it! I’m just sending you a little note right now because i have to go to work but i just wanted to let you know that this demon, your ED, is something you can conquer and it takes a hell of a lot of work and i can vouch for that. i have worked so hard to combat it and am still working on it all the time to try to get back to having a normal life. you said that you tried to get help when you were in college and it didn’t work; but if you’re still there, please try again and go to your counseling center. it was probably the best move that a friend of mine ever made me make and it was my first big step towards recover. anyways, if you have any more questions let me know and feel free to email me…i’d love to help and talk…it always feel better when you can talk about these things…believe me; cause it still erks me to say that i had an “eating disorder”, let alone saying “anorexia”.

    happy holidays!
