Hi! V. New to IE

Hi there, I am really going out of my comfort zone by joining and especially posting here, but as someone who is exploring IE, I'm hoping to get some additional support since I don't have much support in this area IRL. I would have liked to find an IE counselor, but, you know...time and money.I will not lie - I initially looked into IE as a way to lose weight.  Being in the very early stages of my IE journey, this goal is still VERY hard to let go of. I still do the things I "shouldn't" like…See More

Six Month Update

Hi Everyone,I wanted to give an update at the six month mark to give some hope to all of you just starting out.Six months into IE I am now eating and drinking freely in a way I haven't in a long time. I took more of a 'f it diet' approach and eat everything unrestrictedly for any reason. Yes at first I gained weight, I had just come off a diet and was regularly binging so I'm convinced the weight would have come on again anyway. I am now at a point where, without even realizing it, I have lost…See More
