What we are

WeBiteBack is a pro-recovery eating disorder forum managed by volunteer post mods, demi mods and admins, all in varying stages of recovery from their own eating disorders. WeBiteBack is not based on the traditional DSM arbitrary definitions of eating disorders and focuses instead on common thought patterns and behaviours that all people with eating disorders can struggle with, recognising that at any time a eating disorder can take on different aspects and behaviours, and can occur in people at any age, size, shape, ethnicity, gender identity, sex, religion and so forth. We avoid getting into the "name" game, where members 'fess up to being this or that, and ask them instead to talk about how what they are thinking is influencing how they are behaving.

WeBiteBack supports members at all stages of their disorders to move forward at their own speed to growing themselves a life worth living free from eating disorder thoughts and behaviours. We are not professionals and encourage members to grow a real life support network around them, including, where possible, friends, families and ED-specialised clinicians. What WeBiteBack can offer is that empathy - "been there, done that, felt like that too" - and respond with words of support, ideas and suggestions for changing behaviours, directing members to threads to read and exercises to practice, and finally, WeBiteBack members and the mod team will off respectful challenge when your ED is running the show, and we will talk back to it when you feel you have just run out of steam.

WeBiteBack promotes positive body image for people of all shapes and sizes (see our growing forum on Body Acceptance as well as various links, blogs, tumblrs and twitters)and we encourage members to learn to accept their bodies' natural and most healthy set point, wherever that might be, and to love their healthy bodies for what they allow us to do: to dance, sing, study, work, raise children, enjoy healthy relationships, enjoy food in all its forms.

We are fear-fighters and freedom-fighters!

And oh yeah:

Welcome!
