excited?

OK, well you will be.

If I get my professor's permission (and yours), I am using you as a project for my class.

What class? Eating Disorders, thats what!

OK, so don't get weirded out. Wanna know why?

Because you will be used to demonstrate an ED "prevention" program. This assignment isn't due until April but my brain was working overtime in my class tonight. The professor handed us the syllabus and I literally jumped out my chair, but I didn't want anyone to steal it so I kept quiet. (If you knew me for real, you'd know that was way hard).

I am excited if I get approval how I can show an informal support network of anonymous people promoting healthy living, providing encouragement and judgment free information to each other via the blog world. Those recovering from ED, fitness gurus, comedians, aspiring writers, personal trainers, college students, mothers and fathers, males, females, international folks and even a chubber from NY who started a blog to humiliate herself into losing weight all want the same thing. To feel part of something positive.

Cross ya' fingaaas and then tell me below if you would hypothetically want in on this gig if I can get 'er done....

I'M IN!!! Obviously I can't say for SURE that if I hadn't started blogging I would have relapsed by now, but I know for a fact that it's been an enormous help during recovery.

such a cool idea and perfect way to use your passion as your project (blogging I mean...not the disorders)and show how positive it is.

kristen said...

absolutely! this sounds like a wonderful idea.

Sure! I know that blogging has helped prevent a relapse at least twice (because the people in the comments took my side, and/or offered their advice for dealing with the situation).

That's awesome. I'm totally down.

We don't have an ED class! I'm kind of jealous, but by the same token I probably wouldn't be able to sit through it. I'm taking a Human Biology class on Obesity in America, but it's mostly directions on how to create clinical trials and construct interventions. *sigh*

Id love to help.

Let's see, im a female, recovered bulimic personal trainer, who hates when people i dont know touch me.

i dont know if the last part helps, but i like to let everyone know so they dont get clocked.

seriously though, i think this is interesteing. i whole heartedly think the pro anorexia and bulimia xanga groups i belonged to when i was fueled so much of my disease and taught me how to be "good" at it. I htink the opposite can be true as well.

I am normally a lurker on your blog, but I would love to be involved in this project. I am a recovered anorexic and would be happy to take part in anything to help others suffering from ED.
