Not the end - December 4th 2012, 04:43 PM

I reached my goal weight yesterday. And this morning I stepped on the scale, thinking that it was all a dream, the scale was wrong yesterday, I'm still fat ... but I'm still at my goal weight. A little below actually. And I still feel fat. My thighs don't rub together when I walk anymore, but I still don't have that elusive "thigh gap", which I really want. I want those skinny little-girl legs, not my fat ones My hips are still too wide. I want to get skinnier but I only weigh as much as certain anime characters ... (You know Ryou Fujibayashi from Clannad? [EDITED]I'm her height, too. I guess she was thinspo for me) What do I doOOoo0ooOO

Do we remember all the sad things that happened before today, or have we forgotten them?

Prepare for some tough love <3

I'm not going to pretend I approve of the whole 'goal weight thing'. I think it makes what is a deadly mental illness into what is essentially a game (It was something I briefly did, and it didn't lead to good things). Something we forget when we're so caught up in our eating disorders is that we are essentially killing ourselves. Not eating is deadly. It is not a game. It's slowing your heart. It's making your cells turn against themselves and essentially start digesting themselves. It's causing your body to start shutting down. You are dying. Wake up. Stop this.

Darling, it never stops and it will never be enough. You can promise yourself all you like that this will stop but I can promise you otherwise, and I'm the truly living here. You aren't. You're wrapped up in your disorder like a comfort blanket, but it is killing you and you can't see it. It's all lies. It's all bullshit. It's the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth. You have a mental illness and you need to snap out of it. Eating disorders aren't glitz, glamour, quiet strength and thigh gaps. They're about hurt, pain, embarrassment and lies.

I recommend stopping with the thinspo. It's not helpful. I have a sobering thought for you, though. How many girls in those pictures do you think are still alive? Anime isn't real. I'm so, so sorry you live in this world where we're all obsessed with weights and calories, I truly am. It's ridiculous that characters are even given weights. I'm so, so sorry you're in this mess. I'm truly sorry.

But wake up. Look at what you're doing. You have the opportunity to live. Take it. You're only gonna get one life. Don't waste it obsessing over things that don't matter. Put your foot down and be stubborn. Fight like hell. Fight for your life. Reach out, tell someone. Get help. This hell can end, you need to find your reason to live.

Head up. Sorry if I was harsh, I just want to get through to you. I don't want anything to happen to you. We can help you live <3

Take as long as you need.
