Default Yet another newbie :)

Hello all!

I'm new to these forums here and so of course, I had to make the obligatory annoying intro post I am really excited to have found such a great, non-program based weight loss community. I like support groups, but being pressed into a specific plan is not really my style. It is also nice to get info from all over - it seems like people here have a wealth of knowledge and experience, and I look forward to learning from you guys.

My story is pretty much simple, save for a very slight twist. I was always a bit heavy growing up, primarily owing to a medical condition that made it difficult for me to exercise. During high school/college, I got serious about losing weight - almost too serious. If anyone had been aware of the condition then, I might have been diagnosed as orthorexic or something; I was so obsessed with low calorie whole foods and excessive exercise that I wound up way too skinny, despite still being obsessed with the idea of losing more Ultimately I kicked that dark habit...a little too well, considering I ballooned to over 200 pounds...but I'll admit that now that I'm actively attempting to lose again, it worries me. I am afraid sometimes that I might relapse into that mindset and start restricting calories too much, and Too Thin is not a good place to be either :-/

Has anyone else had this experience? I've known a lot of people trying to get over binge eating issues and dieting, but er, not so much people trying to get over past excessive dieting XD; Thanks.

This is, indeed, a wonderful place for support, tips, ideas, etc., for your weight loss journey. I have not encountered the problem you mentioned, but I do know that eating healthy is a way of life...not just a solution to a weight problem - on either side of the scale.

Here's wishing you great success as you journey to better health!

I've never had trouble with being too thin, so can't help you there. But, welcome!! We'll all help each other from here on out!
