This sounds stupid af but my motivation is my physics class. 😂

I'm the only girl taking physics (??? kind of weird but OK school) and we regularly do these experiments to measure energy/velocity etc etc where you need the test subject's mass (kg) - last time I went on I was 81kg, the heaviest, although I was also the tallest test subject, and I've honestly got so much motivation to lose weight purely so that next time I volunteer for that it's like 'wow! You're 71/61kg! You've lost a lot of weight!' which I don't think anyone will actually SAY, but I know at least someone would think it. Boys probably don't really care about weight so much but it's kind of a silent, studious-looking way for me to feel proud lol.

(BTW 81kg sounds awful but I don't hate it? I'm heavier than I want to be but I'd like, die at 40kg or something because I'm more tall than I am wide)

What about you?

my motivation is extremely superficial lol.

post-quarantine/post-covid, when clubbing and concerts and music festivals are acceptable again, I want to be able to go to these events and feel confident/hot and have a lot of fun dancing with my friends without worrying about my weight or what I look like

my motivation is honestly just boredom. i have nothing better to do with my time and my mental health is bad enough that im not trying to get better anymore, so why not relapse?

To prove to myself that I'm in control. That there at least one thing in my life that I can control.

I usually use my ed as coping mechanism for everything going on (bad AND good) and I feel lost without it over all. I’ve tried “recovery” (on my own cause professional help hasn’t been an option).

But honestly as cringey as it is: Natalia Dyer. Like, idk if she has an ed or what not, but season 1 especially of ST

I want to always be the skinniest in the room and in general

My motivation is just to have a goal I can reach. I have pretty much no plans for my life and I feel useless, at least when I'm restricting I can see that I'm doing something.
Also, I've always felt shit in my body, might as well do something about it instead of complaining

To look cute, dainty, and feminine. At 5'10, that's really tough for me to accomplish unless I'm really skinny and am light enough to be carried in someone else's arms just like a shorter girl.

Not pathetic at all! we share the same motivation. I feel like I should be ashamed but our eds want validation, and someone to worry is validation that it's all real and we are suffering.

Honestly this sounds so stupid but same. I'm like 'okay, I'm suicidal, but I have to hold out until I lose the weight so that I can at least look good in my casket' like what 😂😭😭😭
