I've come to love the burning in my stomach,
I've come to love the hunger.
"Just 5 more pounds."
That's what I tell myself after I step off the scales,
So close to double digits,
I can't give up now,
Ive worked so hard I can't go back now,
When you see me,
You see the rib cage and count can every single one,
You see my hair falling out,
I see the skin disguising itself as fat,
I feel disgusting,
5'8" 111 pounds.
I've come to love that burning in my stomach,
I've come to love the hunger<3

Obsession with self-image. Striving to be perfect... Oh, but don't you realize when you're YOURSELF that you're truly beautiful? This made me cry...
