Reasons to be thin
(from Cerulean Butterfly)
Because my skinny clothes are SO much cuter than my fat clothes.
Because it feels great to walk into a store and be able to try on anything.
Because it feels great to have to ask for a smaller size.
Because there really is no such thing as too thin.
Because nothing beats the feeling of a size 0 falling off my hip bones.
Actually, nothing beats seeing my hip bones.
Because I'm sick and tired of comparing my current self to my skinny self and feeling sad about it.
Because the fatter I am, the more I want to cut.
Because I haven't heard, "Wow, you're so thin!" in a long time.
Because "You look healthy now" really means "My God you're so fat!" (or at the very least "My God you're not skinny!")
Because it feels better to be teased for being too thin than too fat.
Because eating makes me miserable.
Because I was never ready to recover in the first place.
Because the Christmas presents I got last year don't fit this year.
Because I may as well just finish what I started.
Because when a guy picks you up, he'll tell you how light you are, and can easily carry you upstairs, lay you down softly, and kiss you good night. (From Chrissy)
Because being thin makes you prettier. (from IL)
Because bones equal pretty, and fat equals ugly. (From IL)
