Lightweight, no weight
feather soft, feather light.
caramel stomachs, filled with tea cups
filled with enough water to drown an ocean,
fight hunger
fight carbs
fight yourself
be nothing, feel nothing, weigh nothing, count everything.

I wrote this because I know what it's like to battle with self image. I was a diagnosed anorexic with bulimic tendencies.
