This thread is awesome :)

364. because we're worth more than this
365. because differential equations and the like are a much better use of our mathematical brain than calorie-counting :p

We may not see eye to eye, but we can respect each other's opinions and find the truth in them.
Perhaps in those honest conversations, instead of demonising each other,
we might see each other as imperfect humans, doing our best. ~ Jodi Picoult

366. So you're not wracking your brains to find something that is 'safe' to stop those hunger pains or to stop you passing out.
367. So your mind is consumed with normal things rather than weight, scales, calories, food, being fat...
368. So people know what to say to you.

I hope you don't mind me bumping this. I just found it really inspiring today and thought it may give others a little reminder too. x

383) So you don't stare in disbelief when you find out that tiny girl that was your thinspiration wears the same jeans size as you.
384) So you can wear colors that are not black just because it's the only color that doesn't make you look "chunky"
385) So your msn status updates are no longer about how terrible you feel for eating.
386) So you don't constantly suck in your tummy because you can't stand the tiny bulge.
387) So you recognize the person in the mirror again.
388) Because lettuce gets boring.
389) So you're no longer "too ugly to have pictures taken"
390) So your dog doesn't have to suffer when you can't take him for regular walks because you're too weak to stand.

391) So when you wake at 3:30am the first thing you do, isn't going to the scales and if it's not what you want to see, taking a long walk when you should be tucked up in bed and warm.

I wanna try and make it to 400 -

392) Friends will stop hurting and being confused.
393) Be able to go into work, be offered sweets and EAT them without worrying and enjoy it.
394) Know that you are able to actually get up in the morning and pursue your day.
395) Realise how much everyone actually cared rather than drowned in false thoughts about yourself - your friends who knew will cheer you on if recovering.
396) Having to hide and remember to hide your food diary, of which one time you forget is not something easily answered to.
397) Walking down the street happy with who you are is better than thinking everyone is staring cos you're fat- when actually you may be underweight.
398) Having your hair not fall out!
399) (If you're female and age dependent) Knowing it's ok for you to have a baby safely.
400) Knowing your body can handle illnesses and accidents; getting well is quicker.

My Scars Remind Me That My Past Is Real

Just to take a breath each day is sometimes the hardest bit to enjoy about ourselves.

404) *warning this may be long!*

I was lay in bed a while ago thinking about relapsing back into my eating disorder, I was craving so badly all of the things I thought it gave me. I was coming to the end of my degree so I thought to myself "no, you need to stay strong, your ED will put your degree at risk". Ok then, I'll wait till I have graduate then I can give in and do it properly this time, but wait, then you will have a job (hopefully) you need money, you need experience more importantly you need your health otherwise you will be useless in the lab. Ok I'll wait till I start my PhD (I was planning a year off before starting my PhD), sorted I can relapse then, I know its a bit of a wait but when I do it properly it will be so worth it. Hang on a minute missy moo, I am pretty sure you need your wits about you to do that too and that doesn't work when you are in the grips of an eating disorder.

There is NO GOOD TIME for an eating disorder, it will always take you away from what you really want to do. It threatens to destroy you and you will never feel like you have done it "properly".

The above is so true.

405) So you can actually go to university, spend time with your friends and not have random mini blackouts because your body has decided that it's exhausted.

You gotta swim don't let yourself sink,
Just find the horizon I promise you it's not as far as you think.

Do you ever wish you could die, but be alive at your funeral?
Just to see who would come, who would cry, who would care?
