It's where people truly understand how meaningless the usual advice about losing weight is. The number of times I've been told 'just eat less and exercise more' amazes me. If it was that simple we could say to smokers 'just don't light up' and the world would be hunky dory. No-one who hasn't struggled with their weight can understand how it feels to always be the odd one out, the failure (no matter what else in life you've achieved) the greedy one .......... There's nothing more heartening than to have people truly understand where you're coming from, to be there when you have questions/bad days and to be non-judgemental.

Hooray for Minimins!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good one, Oli!!!

I think that, even though we're all spread out all over the shop and come from many different backgrounds, cultures, communities and traditions, we all have one thing in common.

Our overeating and our struggle to combat it in the face of a society that condemns us all as worthless.

It's our bond like superglue!

Minimins is great as we can say what and how we feel without feeling that we are being judge by all the skinny people who think we just sit on our backsides and stuff cakes etc down our throats. What they dont realise is that we need support and understanding from people who know what we are going through not judgement. This is why minimins is absolutely fabulous.
THANKS FOR EVERYONE SUPPORT

Not very original to write in to agree with the previous caller,but I've read most of this thread & can't disagree with anyof it. Since I began CD I've had the support of CDC &now this site. I hadn't realised how lonely trying to lose weight by myself has been(not to mention unsuccessful).
MiniMins-Don't go away!

Well I'm completely addicted to Minimins! I log in a few times everyday!

For me - I'm so 'into' my diet at the moment that, although it's not 'controlling' my life, it is a very big part of my life, and I like to talk about it. To be able to come here, and waffle on about it without anyone getting annoyed because it seems to be all I talk about is really nice.

Also the extra sections we've got about getting our head in the right place (Bring Your Head Inside and Your Body Will Follow) I find really interesting, and it helps me understand myself better. And I like the surgical section as well... And the TV, ChitChat and Arcade! Well basically everything.

I think Icemoose summed it up when he said "It just feels like home". It really does, it's somewhere to go and I know I won't be judged or looked down on. It's family!
