Hello, I'm Paige. I started the food plan about a month ago. The first few days were awful, but then i felt amazing! I was telling my therapist about this site, and she said it seemed like a good thing for me. She cautioned me, however, that i needed to participate in the meetings as well, because the food plan itself wasn't enough. Turns out, she was right. I fell off the wagon completely this weekend. This is why this post is so hard to write. I struggle with perfectionism. I am not overweight, (unfortunately I'm the purging type), so no one even knows I have food issues. I have always come across as having everything in order. I don't want others to know I have a problem. Even the idea of a phone meeting terrifies me: I will actually have to show a weakness! So here is where I am starting. I know that I need to embrace everything about FAA to help myself, bt I am standing in my way....again! Any encouragement, advice, or tips would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much!
