I'm 23 and have been dealing with body image issues since I can remember. No matter how skinny I get, I am never satisfied with how I look. Also, I've been battling bulimia since I was 11. Things are much better now than they ever were, but how I see myself is indicative of potential setbacks. Maybe someday it will no longer be an issue. Until then, I walk on eggshells everyday.

It's just nice to find a community of people who understand how I feel. Sometimes I think that life will be better if I could be thinner. But even when I do get to goal weight (and inevitably I go back up 10-30lbs.), my life is no better. I want to be content with what I have, to appreciate what I achieve (in weight loss), and to stop worrying about how everyone else looks.

I hope this community will help.
