So you want to be skinny?
No, you don't.
You want to be tall and blonde and a cheerleader, with white teeth and all the right friends.
You want to be student council president, with respect and admiration from everyone.
You want to be his girlfriend, his one an only, the only girl he kisses and hugs and calls beautiful.
You want to be
sexy exotic pretty smart brave cunning popular loved admired powerful carefree gorgeous beautiful accepted happy

Not skinny.
Skinny will not make you Miss. America.
Skinny will not make you Prom Queen.
Skinny will not make you his girlfriend.
Skinny will not make you happy.
Skinny will not make you beautiful.

Because, after all the weighing, starving, binging, purging, exercising, planning, running, hiding, and crying.....
That's all you are.
