Want to find other folks who are thinking this way?
Maybe you are looking for someone else in your neck of the woods who wants to
take walks at sunrise, or another dog owner who also feels guilty about not
walking the dog, or a biking partner who is also just breaking in her new bike
(and her old body!).
Or maybe you want to form a discussion/support group for making body positive
changes in your life. You could meet in the real world, or you could meet
on-line. You can start your own mailing list through http://www.yahoogroups.com.
AOL members can start their own live chat. Go to the Resources
page to see what already exists online. There are all kinds of options!
This is the place for you to write up a notice for other people to see.
To see other people's notices, go to the Bulletin
Board. But before you write a notice, take a look and see if someone
has already posted to do the thing you are interested in - there may already be
someone in your area looking for an exercise buddy, or someone who is wanting to
email someone like you.
As you might expect, this is not the place to post a personal ad, an
ad with sexual or romantic content, or an ad for any purpose unrelated to the
website's themes. We discourage using the Bulletin Board to focus on the pursuit
of weight loss - rather, we encourage you to practice weight
neutrality: Focus on taking good care of your body with the support of
others, and accept whatever size your body, in its wisdom, settles at.
Remember that anyone can visit the Body Positive site and see the information
you leave here, so be cautious about how you ask other interested people to
We are a small operation so you may not see your notice posted right away. The
bulletin board is generally updated a couple times a year. If you do not specify
an expiration date, your notice will stay up until we have a reason of our own
to take it down.
Please let us know whether your notice
allowed you to find others with your interest!
