Title says it all! What are some of your favorite, preferably ED centric, weight loss, thinness related. Quotes that are relatable in this struggle. Ones that you repeat to yourself over and over in your head. Doesn’t have to be Ed related though, just any quotes that resonate with you. You know what I mean! I’d love to hear them! And maybe write a few down in my diary for safe keeping uwu)

Oh no, I’m sorry if there are, I haven’t noticed any within the past few weeks. I didn’t mean to contribute spam if that’s the case

maybe you meant quotes that are less so "motivational" and more so just kinda help you cope? motivational can be seen as kinda butterfly-esque :)

you did nothing wrong luv!

Honestly, that cliché "nothing tastes as good as skinny feels" one that was popular on this site, years ago. I don't know why it stuck with me, but sometimes when I'm grocery shopping and stuff it just pops up in my head.

"All reactionaries are paper tigers. In appearance, the reactionaries are terrifying, but in reality, they are not so powerful. From a long-term point of view, it is not the reactionaries but the people who are powerful."

 

 

"The world is progressing, the future is bright and no one can change this general trend of history. We should carry on constant propaganda among the people on the facts of world progress and the bright future ahead so that they will build their confidence in victory."

 

 

"It is good if we are attacked by the enemy, since it proves that we have drawn a clear line of demarcation between the enemy and ourselves."

 

 

 

It's possible not all of these are ana related

That’s what I meant, I have a hard time wording things sometimes, I’m sorry! More-so, like, relatable quotes! Motivation is the wrong word, I meant it like, quotes that make you feel good/better/understood when you read them

its perfectly ok. its just that these types of posts are considered to be made my 'newbie anas' who ask for tips and stuff which we regularly dont give. dont feel bad, its just that these types of posts were common a few years ago not too much now

one that ive been thinking about is 

 

"what you dont eat is what you dont gain"

 

and 

 

"i can go longer, i have before i will again"

 

these are more food-oriented and i have lots more but i cant think of them now

Some Catherine of Siena hits:

 

"It is impossible to keep one's mind pure while indulging in a great social life, bodily delicacy, and inordinate eating."

"One's catch will be as perfect as one's cast."

 

"As long as you are alive you can still grow in perfection and merit."

"All, no matter what their state in life, can have perfect merit."

"Pleasures are for worldly people."

"Perseverance is the virtue that receives glory."

"One cannot be deprived of the practice of doing good unless one so chooses."

 

"You like a perverse beast find your pleasure in delicate foods, and make a god of your belly?"

 

"Perseverance is necessary if you want to see your desires realized."

A more positive quote I live by is "You gotta laugh or you'll cry"

 

But a more rough quote I tell myself often is "What would you look like if you had started then?"

“You will smile again”
One I really love is :
“Mirror mirror can’t you see, what you show is killing me”

All my quotes are actually depressing to be honest as I’m not in a great place mood wise so that’s about as positive or as inspirational as I can give you right now!!

"Progress is rarely linear" and "Don't quit! You're already in pain. You're already hurt. Get a reward from it" are my personal mantras
