I finally lost that last five pounds…am I pretty enough now?

Skeleton, Female, Endoskeleton, Skelet


Eating disorders still exist.  Some people spend their entire lives thinking about how much they weigh.  There’s something wrong with that.

  2. Sad. My mother died at 86 and her wish to be thin and have a flat stomach was granted. She was, though, a skeleton unhappy at the outcome of her life. Sad.

    I was anorexic, most of my adult life. I have shots in my twenties, and I look older than I do now.
    I have some where the thickest part of my legs are my knees. Like all addictions, it’s an illness.
    If humour can wake someone up, yay! For me it was the first ever docu about an anorexic girl, who died in the end. I always valued my intelligence. After watching that docu, I said…I’m not that stupid.
    I had to rub my throat to get food down, that night… a for awhile after.
    I was 30 years old, and wore size 12 children’s clothes.

    • OMG Resa. I’m so glad you’re okay and were smart enough not to kill yourself. Karen Carpenter was the first one I saw that died from starvation. That’s when everyone knew what it was. I can’t even imagine going through that. I’m just happy you’re okay and thank you for telling your story, so others can learn from it. Nightmare. I’m assuming you have everything under control now. ❤ Yes, humor, anything that can get the attention on the subject and help even one person, is a good thing.

        It’s crazy, but I know people who quit smoking 10, 20 years ago, and they tell me the craving is still there time to time.
        I still have moments where I think “That’s it! I’m going on a diet!”
        Then I look in the mirror and say, no matter how thin I am, it wont bring back my youth.
        Somehow the 2 are inexorability entwined in my mind.

      • I agree, Youth is normally slender for most. And addictions are hard to keep at bay, even 20 years later. Our youth is gone and there’s not getting it back…not ever. The thing is…what we are at this moment will be gone tomorrow and we won’t get that back either. We all seem to forget that. You’re gorgeous as you are. I would love it if you would model your latest gown when it’s finished. 🙂
