I woke up super early this morning (well, okay, it was only 5:30am, to Jarrod’s alarm) when I could’ve slept in, since I don’t work today. Ah well. Sadly, WoW was down for maintenance by 6am… so I started playing Dragon Age: Origins. I really suck at figuring out how to play new games. >.> DA:O is fun so far though, and the controls aren’t half as confusing...
Today’s been okay, overall. I ate too much - almost a binge, but still not quite - and had to fight off urges to purge, but people are right, the fullness passes… granted, it’s been about 2 hours and I still feel bloated, but less panicky and full and more… well, just tired and kind of full. >.> Needless to say, I didn’t purge. I’m dreading work...

Recovery is Beautiful: How do I stay motivated? →

And men being bigger builds) -Bone density; people will weigh more because of their bone weight- being heavy or big boned. -Body frame size; A person may have a small frame and be carrying too much excess fat, but their BMI reflects...
"I'm getting lots of hate... What do I do?" →
just-a-skinny-boy: If you’re getting hate messages, here are a few things you can do: Turn anonymous messaging off. Most people aren’t willing to show their faces, so simply turning the anonymous feature off can usually reduce the amount of hate you receive. Use the “block” feature. Sometimes people don’t realize that you can actually block people from sending you messages, even anonymously....

Been MIA yet again. Wow… tell us something new, April. I’m really tired. This morning Jarrod and I went swimming and even though he only got in a little ways before deeming the water too cold, I got in all the way. It’s this gorgeous swimming hole that’s about, oh, half an hour’s drive from our place in the middle of nowhere-ish. Yar, that be me proving that...
Pro-Recovery blogs please reblog this?
Well, I found out that the other clerk, who started a week before I did, got a really negative performance evaluation too. So I wasn’t the only one. I was afraid that she would get a really good one, but it turns out that due to that we both were vaguely thinking about quitting. :( There are just… inconsistencies with what our supervisor tells us to do and what she expects us to...
