let's make today the best it can be

Today was a beautiful day.

Still at 104.5 lbs, but at least I'm maintaining. 

A friend invited me shopping tomorrow, very excited about that!

Spring break has started.

I think that I'm seeing faint signs of hipbones. 

I hope to see ribs soon.

I hope you've had an amazing day too!

Thank you, so much to everyone who helped me yesterday. I honestly never imagined that I would get so much support and kindness and understanding; it moved me to tears, of happiness. Your support has helped me make a huge step towards getting through this. I can't adequately put into words how much I appreciate everything you all have done for me.

Olivia Lee- Thank you so much! Your support and kind words made me feel much less alone and helped me get through yesterday. 
GraceyJ- Oh, I wasn't sure what was making the comments come up as spam. Sometimes comments appear in the spam box hours after they were posted and I don't discover them until much later. :(
Neeska- "You don't have to get over it," Thank you thank you thank you, that helped me more than you can imagine. Everything you said truly helped me, made me feel valued and cared for. Your concern and sympathy, as well as your advice, made me feel stronger, and made me feel incredibly glad that people like you exist. Thank you, we need more people like you in this world.
-christy- - Sometimes telling secrets, or just blogging about it, really helps. Thank you for your help, it truly made me feel better.
SimplyHeather- Thank you for your help, your support means so much to me.

lulu- You still have snow?! I'm proud of your dedication to working out 6 days a week, that takes determination. 110 sounds like a great weight for you! You must be very thin already, since people estimate you at that weight. :) 
Ana's Addict- You have no idea how relieved, how much better I felt after reading that it's normal to react that way. 'Thank you' multiplied by a thousand! You are truly a sweet person, thank you for taking the time to make me feel much better.
jackie- Thank you for your caring and sympathy. And thank you especially for saying that it's not my fault, it chased away my feelings of guilt and fault. I promise I won't forget that. You made my day a million times happier. I'm very grateful for your support, it means so much to me.
unbeautiful- Thank you for taking the time to give me caring and support, it helped me very much. You're a 100% right, trying to forget it won't help and I need to work through it. Thank you so much for the link, reading all the comments on the page made me feel less alone. I'm very grateful for all your kind words.

I want you all to know that you are absolutely amazing, beautiful people, inside and out. Thank you.

    My mood has done a complete 180 since reading this. :D
    I think it was just what I needed!
    I feel like I can do anything now.
    If I want to do a liquid/water fast (current obsession, haha) then I have the willpower to stick to it!
    One quote I love is "When you say 'no, thanks' to food, you say 'yes, please' to thin."
    It really keeps me motivated and on track.

  12. Hey,
    I actually don't know how to message you either, so, I'll just use the comments.
    First of all, there was no disgust or anger in my question, I guess it was just naive, I just thought, IDk, you could just explain why you thought that. I suppose there was concern. I mean, I'm sure you're a beautiful girl already. And, not trying to offend you, but, it makes me sad when girls think they have to be skinny to be beautiful.

    I found your blog just by cruising through the "next blog" button, and , no, I don't have EDNOS. BTW, What does that stand for? EDNOS?


Don't be shy, leave a comment. :) I'd love to hear your thoughts!
