This is a safe place for those who really, really, REALLY want to succeed in a LFRV lifestyle but the journey is just a little harder for us. We want to get there…we need to get there…and we WILL get there! Through support and encouragement and empathy, we can come here and share our struggles, scrutinize why we sometimes fall, get what we need to pick ourselves back up again, and have a cheerleading section who has our back every step of the way.
No one here is giving up! We know and understand and believe on every level that this is the path we need to be on to get the results we're after. But personal demons challenge us and we can't always see past the illusion. If we end up making poor choices, this is where we come to confess, analyze and get the motivation through the help of others to dust ourselves off and commit again, a little stronger each time.
Some of us are here with valid overeater/binge demons. Others of us have other types of mental/emotional disadvantages. For anyone here, there is a struggle involved.
What's amazing about the folks in this group is that we really believe in this path and are determined to get there. We haven't given up, we're not quitting! We just really need this support group and each other.
Because this is a safe haven for "struggling with the struggle," we want group members to feel safe. Please keep comments inspirational and kind. The LFRV community really needs the voice of those who made it despite the odds!

I go to twelve-step meetings. One is AA. Another is OA. Alanon is also good. However, they all seem to be locked in to the idea that it's okay to eat SAD, as long as I don't drink alcohol! This…Continue
