It was just like any other evening at my house. I got home, turned on my television and watched all the beautiful “people” strut around being beautiful. I saw myself how I used to be: A healthy 108 pounds, with shiny light-blonde hair and a crooked white smile. If only I were a few pounds lighter. I may not hate myself if I was. Hating myself made me just want to gorge. I ate everything I could get my hands on. But when I looked at myself and realized what I had just done, I screamed at myself and ran to the bathroom sink.
