“If you talked to your friends the way you talked to your body, you would have no friends left.” Marcia Hutchinson
Give your body love and respect.
Treat it with kindness.
Treat it with care.
Be patient with it.
Because you would act that way towards a friend.
Because you would want a friend to act that way towards you.
Because you deserve it, and so does your body.
The best way to get something done is to begin.
You continue to tell yourself that you will start your task tomorrow.
Tomorrow arrives, and you postpone your actions yet again.
No more excuses.
No more delays.
No dwelling on the past, or fixating on the future.
All you have is the present moment.
Let go, and start today.
Begin working now.

I feel just, so incredible tonight.
I felt normal.
I went out to a movie with my boyfriend, and afterwards we went to get ice cream.
I ate movie theater popcorn and drank a milkshake. In. Public.
Even a week ago I felt like I could never be normal. I felt like I couldn’t go out on a date with my boyfriend and have a good time because of all the pressure to eat. Tonight, I insisted on popcorn, and it was my idea to go to Steak ‘N Shake.
He would never suggest going out to eat because he knows how bad my anxiety gets eating out in public, and tonight I suggested doing such.
I feel so incredibly liberated at this moment.
I feel like I can, with time, beat this eating disorder.
I feel like someday I can be free.
