I wanna look in the mirror and be proud of myself. Not feel disgusted.
I wanna wake up and go to sleep with an empty stomach knowing I made progress….Not going to sleep regretting a bad decision I made for 10 minutes of pleasure.
I wanna step in the scale and see the number go down. Not see the number stay the same.
I wanna be the person I’ve always Dreamed of being. Not the nightmare person I am right now.

⭐️ to go to the pool this summer in a perfectly tiny body with a perfect little bikini and have all eyes on me
⭐️ so people look at me with concern when I refuse food
⭐️ so people look at me with amazement when I do eat
⭐️ summer outfits!!
⭐️ being cold, getting jackets/sweaters at night, being dainty and taken care of

My favorite hobby is watching my 600 lb life while listening to my stomach rumble from hunger 😐
The feeling of being full is so…disgusting. Unsatisfying…nasty. Like sure for those 5-10 minutes eating might feel great but literally the next 23 hours is just guilt and regret and hate.
