Hello everyone,

My name is Kendra and I thought I'd introduce myself. I'm 18 years old and have been pro-Ana for about six years now, Mia for two of those years. I stopped with the hardcore restricting and purging after about 2 years, once I'd finally reached my goal, but of course you never really stop being Ana. I guess I became a little too comfortable in my new body because I ended up gaining about 75% of my weight back (about 30 lbs.). The entire time when I'd been gaining weight I tried to go back to Ana, I couldn't seem to get control of my weight. I tried to figure out what was different at the time from when I first began and then I realized that I had a huge support group of other pro-ED's when I first started. So that's why I'm here, I need to be able to connect with people who think like me.
