    I feel really sick of always watching what I

    eat. Feeling guilty after eating food. And I binge eat too often. When I binge eat, I exercise like mad. I look in the mirror and feel inferior all the time. Really want to stop this mindset of feeling fat. I always weigh myself and feel frustrated if my weight does not go down...

    I do. Every day I avoid looking in the mirror.

    Everyone is like your so gorgeous! Shut up! Don't say that! But I can't help it. Especially when my significant other never touches me. I always feel so unattractive I don't even dress up anymore. People on EP say your photo is gorgeous. It's a photo. Anything can be beautiful...

    Out of all my friends I am the fattest

    and ugliest. It's hard sometimes to stay positive watching them go on dates and go to parties when I don't because no one ever wants the fat ugly chick around. I try to lose weight but it never works. I'm tired of feeling and looking the way I do.

    No More!!!

    No more!!! I'm done! No longer will I allow myself to be made to feel inferior because of my looks nor my weight. This is absurd! None of us should ever feel ashamed or embarrassed because of our bodies. Beauty doesn't come from the outside. It isn't long, dark, frizz-free hair...

    Like Tonight
