You can never be too rich or too thin.
Of course it's hard; if it were easy, everyone would be thin!
This is forever. I will do whatever it takes. I want to be thin more than anything, even food.
Starvation is fulfilling. Colors become brighter, sounds sharper,

fibre and pore of the body. The greatest enjoyment of food is actually
found when never a morsel passes the lips.
One day I will be thin enough. Just the bones, no disfiguring flesh.
Just the pure, clean shape of me, bones. That is what we all are, what
we're made up of and everything else is just storage, deposit, waste.
Strip it away, use it up.
You will be tempted quite frequently, and you will have to choose

Nothing. Nothing is wrong, and asking is against the rules. Crying
is against the rules. You're strong; don't let them break you. They're

I do eat normally; I eat only what is necessary for survival. I
can't help it that we live in a piggish society where gluttony is the
norm, and everyone else is constantly stuffing themselves.
When I wake, I'm empty, light, light-headed. I like to stay this
way, free and pure, light on my feet, traveling light. For me, food's
only interest lies in how little I need, how strong I am, how well I

Food hinders your progress.
THIS IS FOREVER. I WILL DO WHATEVER IT TAKES. I WANT TO BE THIN MORE THAN ANYTHING, EVEN FOOD.
You've made a decision: you will NOT stop. The pain is necessary,
especially the pain of hunger. It reassures you that you are strong,
