Hi! *waves* I was ana too. From middle school through my first year in college. I'm 25 now and 125, it's a good look for my 5"4' frame ;)
What made you want to change initially? For me it was a really amazing dr. who pointed out that I was emaciated and refused to let me lie (mostly to myself) that it was just because of my other disease(endo). I fell in with a crowd of people that ate lunch together everyday. I'm on AIM and MSN if you want to chat.

Hello =) *waves back* I'm about 5 feet 1 inch right now, weight-wise I'm not sure, I haven't weighed myself in some time, but last time I did I was at 95 or so. The lowest I have been at is 81. I made this decision not too long ago mainly because of my boyfriend, but a few other family members of mine have also sat me down and gave me a talk. I just realized that in hurting myself, I'm hurting them too.
