Where can I find other kindred spirit exobese people on the internet?

I lost about one hundred pounds a few years ago. While I've mostly dealt with it on my own, I'd love to know of any online support groups of previously obese people. [more inside]

Should I keep taking Adderall?

I was recently diagnosed with adult ADHD (inattentive type) and put on Adderall. I have very, very mixed feelings about this -- hopeful, because it seems to really be helping me in multiple areas of my life, but also anxious that it is a crutch that I can't use forever. Does anyone have any insight or anecdotes to help me either (1) feel better about being on Adderall, or (2) come up with an alternative plan to manage my issues? [more inside]

Hanging real low all over?

I am morbidly obese and honestly one of the things holding me back from attempting to lose the weight is sagging skin. I saw a little of that when I last shed 60lbs and this time I have 100 to lose. Will the sag through diet and going slow be as extreme as I have seen on tv with weight loss surgery. I cannot afford plastic surgery afterwards that they all seem to need.

Help whip my post-obesity body into shape

I used to be obese. I have lost about 80 pounds out of my goal of 100 lost, and am struggling to lose the rest. My body, even though I am in my mid 20s, is now a complete mess. I am covered in stretch marks from head to toe. I’m hardly exaggerating. They start at my shoulders and don’t let up until my calves. I have big hanging flaps of skin and fat under my arms. Some bits of stretch marks and loose skin on my tummy, hips, thighs, and rear. I look like I had a baby or four. My breasts sag and are also covered in stretch marks. I’m aware that I’ll likely only ever look normal by plastic surgery, but what I am looking for is how to improve my body as much as I can through accessible methods until I can begin to afford surgery (or better, avoid it). I’ve tried searching Google and here, but I can’t seem to find the right information. Lots of questions/background inside. [more inside]
