Gaining weight won’t make you miserable.
Fear of gaining weight, however, will.

Reminder to myself: Being skinny doesn’t mean a damn thing if I’m not happy and okay to begin with. Being thin will not solve my problems and make me love myself. Relapsing will only ruin me.

Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen.
