Hi everyone, So I was thinking a bit more about Sunshine Singer's thread about her bestfriend's concern about diet messageboards such as these - and while I do not agree with her particular concern i.e. it forces others to lose weight etc - for me there IS a little problem with messageboards.... This is strictly my own experience so please no one take offense, but whenever I join a group for a program I start with it begins to feel too much like a DIET or a PROGRAM that I am 'on' and so logically, will eventually be 'off'. Once it begins feeling like that my mind and body just want to rebel and be 'normal' again. I know this is probably my own f-ed up behaviour patterns - while I dont intend on coming off this board as I genuinely find inspiration and knowledge and support here - I do find that relaxing a bit more about CD or whatever program helps me - like think of a messageboard as a community of lovely people on their own journeys and me being relaxed and normal being on my VLCD journey. I dont know if that makes ANY sense... what do you think??
