I just wanted to say thank you so much for putting together this fantastic site. I have struggled with disordered eating for most of my life and combined with being a long time sufferer of depression it has led to some very unhealthy living and a very unhappy Beki in recent years.
I joined your forum after making the decision that it was time to do something about improving my mental and physical wellbeing and the support I have received ever since has been an absolute godsend. I love that there is a mix of women here, some of whom are competitors, others who keep fit and then more who like me just want to take control of their lives once and for all. Even better, everyone is an equal, everyone has had their share of struggles at some point and they are all so generous in helping each other through the bumpy patches.
I have since decided after losing a considerable amount of body fat and gaining infinitely more self confidence, that I want to compete in figure next year. Having role models such as yourself is a huge inspiration and knowing that you support each and every person on this forum is just another thing that makes it such a wonderful place to be.
I still have bad days but I know that on those days there is so much support just waiting to be tapped into and beleive me I make the most of it! I hope that one day I can give something back to the community and in turn help and encourage others.
So thank you for this site and thank you for all your words of encouragement - I hope I can make you proud next May!
