imagine you're in the car. just run with me for a second, this happened to me today and i need to tell someone it. you're in the car, and you've only eaten about 80 calories that day so you're feelin' pretty light and empty, pretty happy. there's a boy driving, one that you really like and have liked for a long time. more than anyone else you've ever liked actually, and there have been times when he's liked you back. you're talking, a pretty normal conversation, about the type of people you usually want and are attracted to. then, all of a sudden he goes "it's weird that i liked you, i usually go for skinnier girls". you bite your lip, look out the window and nod, "different people like different things" you say, anything to get off the topic. he moves on, not knowing that it stung. badly, all of a sudden you're itching in your new top, all your fat is spilling out, you know it. all of a sudden, there are stretch marks on your thighs, all over. you're busting out of your clothes, your skin. starve, starve, starve, be one of the girls he's talking about, one of the perfect skinny girls that you aren't.
you can do it.
