Here’s the deal. You’re not going to feel like you’re thin or sick enough. You’re just not, that’s the nature of this illness. But one day, you’ll realize you were. One day you’ll know the truth.

But you can’t get there if you don’t decide that you’re going to take a leap of faith and eat and get better, even while you feel like you weren’t sick enough. It’s gotta be done.

Just do it. (I sent this to someone but I feel like it’s really universally applicable.)

The numbers start
getting smaller on
the scale but so does
the number of friends
you have and the number
of years you are going to
live and the number of smiles
you will have and the number
of dogs you are going to pet
and the number of songs
you are going to listen to
and the number of books
you are going to read and
the number of people you
are going to meet and the
number of times you are going
to be able to draw and the
number of times you are actually
going to feel like you are alive.
