I've been playing around with the tools at caloriecount.about.com and setting up my goals to find out how much I should eat, things like that.
First, I put in my current and goal weights along with my activity level, to find out that to reach my goal weight by the end of January I should eat 1300 cals per day. They don't recommend going under 1200 for women or 1500 for men.
Then I did a quiz - turns out that I'm a social eater and that I generally need to pay more attention to the signals I get from everyone else. I guess with my ED and desire to please everyone I've learnt to really pretend to everyone that I'm eating properly and I'm really up to the stage where I'm lying to myself as well as everyone around me. I must pay more attention to that.
I'm also reading through their exercise plan - I think it's one I can fit into my schedule and I love that they have huge lists of resources for any question readers might have!
Best of all they have a tool that logs food in and exercise out over any given time frame - I'll be logging all of mine and posting reports!
