I am at a complete loss for words. I can relate to this although our"eating disorders" are on the other end of the spectrum. I think self-confidence is one of the hardest things to achieve, especially once you've been torn down before...you WILL get there.

Just remember, you are strong, talented, curageous, powerful, and beautiful. And, you are a woman...need I say more?

You don't know me but, I'm here if you need me.

Wow--this brought tears to my eyes. Congratulations of finding love within yourself.

Thank you for sharing this.

How awesome that you recorded these feelings and this picture. I love your journaling strips. Great layout!

Beautiful! Thanks for sharing.

OMG~I love this lo! It's so emotional b/c I too have always been the Fat Girl. I have gained 80 pds. in 4 yrs. and it's really starting to affect me. I am going to put this in my BOS-what an inspiration you are to others! I don't even know you and I'm proud of you :~)

This was cathartic. I found this picture of me during an especially terrible part of my life and just winced. I was about to stick it in a drawer and bury it but after thinking about it, I thought maybe it was time to say goodbye to this person. I just lost over 55 lbs in the last 9 months after a lifetime of failing. My weight has been up and down but I never lost more than 20 lbs. It's difficult getting used to my new self. I never believed it, but people really do treat you differently when you're overweight. And when you've been a certain way all of your life, things stick and you never stop thinking of yourself that way. So even now, I still see that fat girl in the mirror. Self esteem had never been my strong point, but I'm getting there. TFL
