i remember being so obsessed with food as a kid i'd constantly reread passages in my books where food was being described because it made me so happy, especially enormous feasts like in harry potter or the hobbit. it got to the point where during every meal i'd pick out a book specifically to reread the meal descriptions while i was eating. i guess it made food taste even better to me? idk

anyone else have/had a weird fixation on the way food is written about in books?

Affirmations: 
 
I am worthy of abundance in my life. (Just not in regards to fat on my body okay I want that fat-free female figure.)
Opportunities are always attracted to me and I am always presented with them at the right time.
I am worthy of financial security and financial abundance.

 

 

Gave up recovery and the idea of recovering.

 

I'm not so naiive as to believe that reaching my UGW would be ultimate happiness,

but it is so much easier to be sad and underweight than it is to be fat and depressed.

It’s things like this that make me think,

“hmmm maybe it’s not so unexpected that I was gonna develop an ED in the future”

Conversely tho have you ever read any works by the Brontë sisters because in “Jane Eyre” I STG IT WAS A THING TO EMPHASIZE HOW SMALL SHE WAS I was like... Charlotte Brontë high key was anorexic

I remember the Babysitters-Club books having descriptions of Claudia's candy stash. I can't have a candy stash like Claudia because I would just binge on it.
