    I feel like everyone goes through times where they don't like themseles, or certain things about them.

    I had eating disorders for years, I was bulemic and anorexic, and I spent HOURS doing cardio a day.

    I got down to 83 pounds a 5'7.5

    Today i hit 150, and... it just feels really good. Last night at the bar, the first time I've gone in a while, guys noticed me. And looked at my ass. I HAVE AN ASS!

    Sorry, this is ridiculous, I'm just... really really excited. I'm not gaunt anymore. I have colour. I smile. My organs stopped failing ahaha.

    It's just really nice.

    So tell me one thing you've learned to love about yourself.

    Today I learned to love having an ass, and that not being skinnyskinny is actually really nice.

    Gray hairs,, you're only 20. Just looked and see you're in Vanc lucky you. That's where I did all my "growing up" from when I was 18 to 29 living in the west end. Some of the funnest years of my life. I must have lived in 5 different buildings LOL

    I learned to love having abs, because I've been overweight most of my life.

    Yeah, that is SCARY. I go the other way (of course...), I would say 'lucky' but the fact that you lost so much is no luck whatsoever, that is scary low. Glad to hear you're doing better. *hugs*

    First of all congratulations, I dont know you but I am proud of you.

    This may be gross to some of you but I've learned to love how hairy I am. I have chest and back hair since I was 13 and was nicknamed "bear" in school. But its me, I'm not going to shave it. What if Jane Goodall wants to study me?

    I learned to get over the fact that I will never meet a guy as good looking, intelligent, educated, and witty as me.

    I guess there is only room for one at the top,

    I have had to sit down and really think about this lately ... after a tough break up, I had forgotten who I was (shame).

    I like being somewhat intelligent, relatively in shape, and very much so goal oriented. I like those things about who I am. I still have quite a long way to go.
