ok folks. sandi's post is SOOO revealing, and there's sooo much wisdom in the responses that i suggested that the ever-gabbling low-carb chicks come over and read it. and they are coming, and responding OVER THERE, rather than here!!!
goodforme, after reading sandi's post and the responses, started her own heart-wrenching thread on the low-carb board titled: how can it be anorexia when you weigh 240 pounds [or something close to that]. please read and respond, wherever you're most comfortable.
it's been my fondest wish for a long time that there would be more interaction between the members of these two forums. without the support of the LC ladies and you wonderful folks, i doubt that i'd be as 'stable' [well, it's a relative term!] as i am.
and thank you all...
