You know, a year ago I could’ve given you ten reasons why I need to be thin. But at this point, it kind of comes down to I’m just tired. I’m tired of having spent most of the last 15 years overweight. I’m tired of my emotional dependency on food. I’m tired of not being valued as a human being by both myself and everyone else when I’m at a higher BMI. I’m tired of this complete lack of confidence, not being able to dress how I want and feel like myself without being repulsed by my own fat.
