The tape measurer winding its way around my body, for the very first time.
Chest: 31 inches
Waist: 24 inches
Hip: 33 inches

"Size double zero right?" she asked as she reached for a pair of dark blue jeans, on a shelf too tall for my height of 5"3. "No, zero," I said.

We strive to be something, by trying to become nothing.

A spoonful of yogurt, the rest thrown away. Uneven, jagged edges of a half-eaten apple. A bite of chocolate, spitting it into the trash. Food gets terribly boring, uninteresting. I'm finally truly tired of eating.

HeatherMB- I'm sorry to hear about your knees, I hope they get better! The elliptical seems like a really good workout, I've never tried it though. I hope you have a lovely day!
Sammy- Thank you so much for your comment, you made me smile. (:
Dani- I'm sorry that you had to throw your scale away, his concern for you is truly touching though. I still hope that you find a way to negotiate with him about having a scale, maybe in a month or so! Thank you for your comment!
Skinnygirl- The link is above, I'm glad you are doing this. (:
A Girl with Tiny Intentions- Thank you for commenting, I hope you have a lovely day!
Cinnamon Brown- When I was a kid, I would throw my vitamins down the AC vent things, I had the Fred Flintstone vitamins. It's good to hear that the vitamins helped you stay relatively healthy at your lowest! Thank you for commenting!
RaeLynn- Thank you, your comment made me very happy. I love running cross country and I'm glad you did too. (:
Little Miss Thin- It's great to hear that you did cross country too! And I think the girls on these blogs are like a team, like family, and you're part of that too. (:


  1. <3
    Inspiring post. Like a breath of fresh air touching skin for the first time in years.

  2. Wow, you're so tiny! It's weird thinking how much smaller than me you are when my measurements aren't really that much bigger. Clothes sizing is so strange. x

  3. Ohhh I wish I was a zero. lol I'm a big fat ten at the moment, which is smaller than I've been since elementary school, but still... definitely not a zero. It sounds like you're mentally ready to get where you want to be, if food is beginning to hold no meaning for you anymore. Also, your measurements look fantastic. Stay strong and good luck getting that 00!

  4. im a 7, im completely jealous u skinny little thing! clearly your hard work has paid off :)

  5. Lol, I wish I could be tired of eating.

    I am also envious of you size zero-ness. Although I might be too tall to make it that far. Do you think I should try to make it there/

  6. Your measurements are amazing! I wish I had those!

  7. your measurements are so amazing! Keep at it and soon you'll need a belt ;)

  8. You have such a tiny waist! I'm a wee bit jealous you are a size zero... Just a wee bit.
    I'm tired of eating too so I haven't really done it.

    Thank you for the compliment by the way. :)

  9. i cant say i try hard as i had a chocolate bar for breakfast, but i tend to fall hard anyway.

  10. i will never get my scale back hun trust me on that i miss it i wnat it but i will never have it back
    i wont get my tape meausre back either and i wishi had that

  11. I'm happy to hear you in some kind of happy place, and congrats on the weight loss but you need to be happier girl! Smile!<3 (P.S. your waist is the same as megan fox's hehe I'm jealous)

  12. We have the exact same measurements. That's crazy. But I'm heavier than you are... Ughhh.
