I really only have two main reasons; I work in the entertainment industry, I'm already typecast at the 'young, blonde ingénue' and I keep getting called back for those roles but I feel that I'd actually get more of them if I were smaller.


I'm also insanely competitive so being the smallest one in the room just feels like winning.

For me it's
- to feel better and look better it clothing
- to prove my parents that said 'your not built to look like that' or 'you will always be a little larger' wrong.
- to get attention, bad or good. (it's stupid I know... But when you go so long thinking people don't care all you want is attention or someone to act like they care... At least for me)

1) to punish myself because I don’t deserve to be “fat and happy” like a fluffy round cat.

2) to slowly get smaller and smaller till I disappear.

3) to be comfortable in my skin and clothes, love feeling like a feather.

To be in control.

To have a man describe me as "sexy"

I don't want to grow up.

1. To feel powerful and have self-discipline.

2. To be the skinny girl.

3. So I can hang out and do the things I've got to do without panicking about how fat I feel.

I can see it coming from the edge of the room
Creeping in the streetlight
Holding my hand in the pale gloom

Can you see it coming now?

• I feel like starving myself will give others proof that my depression/pain/suffering is real. I feel invalid compared to others.. People often to only believe when they see it.
• To finally not feel disgusted with myself, find inner happiness for what’s on the outside, not just the inside. (I’m fully aware it’s never gonna happen, as I only feel worse and worse as it goes on, but feeling like I’m just on the cusp of reaching happiness is too fucking addicting to stop.)
• To be seen as willful and powerful. Strange.

1. To finally wear whatever I want without hating the way I look.
2. So I can be happy with my body and therefore more confident.
3. To be the skinny one.

I guess those are my main reasons. In my opinion beauty is connected to weight; the thinner the prettier.

Trying to figure it out myself tbh but as far as I can really think


1. To look good in everything

(ie: finally try on those cute clothes at the mall and not wistfully think "maybe when I lose some weight" every single time) 


2. As a form of demented self expression kind of?

(This is weird to explain but I kind of feel like the outside of me should reflect the inside, and the inside is frail and dainty and I would feel more comfortable looking the way I feel? I used to cut my thighs as like. A physical manifestation of emotional pain because it felt more real. This is something similar)


3. Because it feels incredible to know something I'm doing is actually having some sort of an effect. Like, I'm trying to achieve something and I'm actually getting there because I'm capable.
