"these triggers ache for the touch, where's the strength we relied on"
I wear a pink and white braided bracelet, for EDNOS. (I do not currently meet the complete criteria for anorexia yet, which includes 3 consecutive missed periods.) Bracelet for ana is red, bracelet for mia is purple, EDNOS is pink. Seeing my bracelet on my wrist reminds me of my purpose and goals and keeps me strong, makes me remember that all around the world, others are wearing a bracelet like mine, for the same reasons, I'm not alone. I like having a bracelet to symbolize the thoughts in my head and my lifestyle, because tangible things reassure me, because they exist, they're real. It helps stabilize my unstable world.
Do you wear an ED bracelet? Have you seen anyone wearing one?
I'm planning to weigh myself next week, so I'll work extra hard and stay motivated for the scale. Obsessively weighing myself and still seeing 106 lbs isn't very inspiring... I need to do better.
Meal Plan Tomorrow:
Breakfast: throw away
Exercise: 2 hours of tennis

jackie- I love the new Marie Antoinette quote you made! I think it's amazing how a few simple words said by her were remembered after many, many years, and are now famous. Your reason is inspiring to me, any reason is good, we're working towards a similar goal for different reasons, but the end result will be simply amazing for us both. Thank you for your comment! :)
Alex- I can definitely relate to the wish to disappear! I'm impressed by your determination, and also your vocabulary (intrinsic). :) Thank you so much for your comment!
Skittles- Avoiding neuro-degenerative senescence and less risk of cardio-vascular and digestive disorders are very good reasons. Becoming thin is beautiful and healthy! :) Thank you very much for commenting!
