Mmmm.... not to offend anybody so please don't jump onto me.<br><br><br><br>
I am just thinking that some people obviously eat very little so that their food logs only takes several letters to complete. I am kind of worrying that some other people who require more food just to breathe may feel bad somehow from reading those ultra short food logs??<br><br><br><br>
Not sure what I want to say but maybe you can put "a satisfying salad" instead of "salad" if that's all you put for your lunch. I dunno, some sensitive persons may feel bad reading others can survive on "apple, salad, oatmeal" everyday!<br><br><br><br>
Thank you!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

spooky. I was just looking at the 'What did you eat today?' thread, and came away feeling a teensy bit bad, cos i certainly eat lots more than other folks. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br><br><br><br>
but i guess thats my fault for eating so much, and reading the thread.<br><br><br><br>
thanks Freemouse.

i gave up that thread awhile ago. i felt like i was getting addicted to it and it was driving me freakin' crazy. i felt like it was making my disordered eating worse, not better. now i just don't open it anymore. i'm actually trying to avoid these boards in general, especially the posts in healthy living about EDs, but it's tough when i'm bored at work....

All people are different, and their bodies can be substained on different amounts of food. If it makes you uncomfortable to read it, than don't enter the thread. People who eat less, have every right to be there as the people who eat more do.

I am sure that Freemouse is in no way implying that those who eat less are not welcome.<br><br>
But speaking as someone who both worries about the amount I eat, while being guilty of vague posts, I would love people to be more explicit.

Oh yes, and stop using my name! I can't search for myself on VB because of this thread. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

BF, like others said, I have no intention of stopping anybody from posting---- sure you have the rights to post whatever and however you wish. I just want to make a little suggestion b/c I know several regulars here have problems with their eating patterns and body images, so please understand.<br><br><br><br>
Bring up the OATMEAL! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br>

I'd just like to add that the What Did You Eat Today thread helps me make sure I am eating a lot of food. When I look back and see, "oatmeal, apple, salad" I say to myself "oh crud, go get some food now!"

f-ked up relationship with food. i hate it and try not to think about it....this thread is not the right place for this, but i could talk about this later, elsewhere, i suppose...but wait i'm trying not to go on these boards much anymore...i dunno....VB is good and bad (for me) in a lot of ways....

I haven't been eating enough, not so much in terms of calories, though I think I could be eating more, but in terms of variety. No time! It's starting to take its toll. I just hope I keep it all together.

Yeah I feel the same way about that thread.<br><br><br><br>
Makes me feel like I'm eating too much. As if it should matter that a few people across the Atlantic (well, most are ) eat less than I do, and as if what they eat should influence my ways of eating. And yet it sometimes does. Ah I'm such a silly one.<br><br><br><br>
And then I also feel bad for those that don't eat enough, because I know it's such a damaging thing to do to oneself, and I wish someone would let them know.<br><br><br><br>
But then there's post that are inspirering and give me ideas for yummy foods to buy or make. So it's not all bad.

I like to post occasionally to remind people what normal eating is like or what a binge really is <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
Unforunately, I haven't been able to, due to lack of groceries and now the canker sore from hades.
