I'll be happy when I have a thigh gap. I'll be happy when my chest is smaller. I'll be happy when my stomach is flat and I have outlines of abs. I'll be happy when my arms are thinner. I'll be happy when my collar bones stick out. I'll be happy when my jawline is prominent. I'll be happy when my cheekbones are sharp and when my fingers are slender.
Losing weight is the only cure to my self hatred, and no one can convince me otherwise.
