“Books open your mind, broaden your mind, and strengthen you as nothing else can” – William Feather

“A well-composed book is a magic carpet on which we are wafted to a world that we cannot enter in any other way” – Caroline Gordon

“We read to know we are not alone.” – C.S. Lewis

“It is not true we have only one life to love, if we can read, we can live as many lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish.” – S.I. Hayakawa

These days I have immersed myself in a knew novel, “The Forgotten Garden” by Kate Morton. I must say I have found my love for reading again, that was once taken from ed. I truly recommend this book, it gives me a break out of life, and into a new world. Yes, I am aware how cheezy that sounds, but I just had to say it. 🙂


Besides how fantastic my book is, you know what else is on my mind?


And we all know what that means, I’m not eating enough while exercising too much. I know how to stop this, but why can’t i seem to take control of it before I spiral? Ed is telling me to restrict every chance I get. Gaah, I’m not going downhill again, I won’t let it happen!

Had to let that frustration out, I need to responsible for my actions. Thanks for all you bloggers out there for your inspiration, you really motivate me, even though it’s hard to put the thought to action. I’ll keep my recovery updated on here from now on, hopefully to help me stay on track. Okay? … Okay.


Ooh and before I forget;

I got my prom dress! …{in the dressing room bcbg}

yes, I know it’s white, but I love it! What do you think?

  1. You are beautiful-outwardly with that dress and inwardly with everything you stand for and are fighting for!
    I’m so so happy that you’ve found your love for reading-I too know what it feels like to have ed take it away and now learn to enjoy it again.
    ❤ stay strong hun!

  2. You look so beautiful in the dress!

    I love reading too! I’m glad you have rekindled your love for it. Yay for another victory over ed. 🙂

  3. Oh my lanta, you and I are SO alike! I’m so glad we met through the blog world!!
    Reading is one of my passions as well. It’s so fun to escape into a good book 🙂
    By the way, YOU are stunning in that dress and your writing is so powerful in your posts. I really look forward to reading more!

  4. Reading is one of my passions too, and Kate Morton is a terrific writer. I’ve just finished The Distant Hours, if you have not read it yet you have something to look forward to 🙂

    I’m really proud of you for realizing that you need to fight through some changes to get back on track. It is hard and uncomfortable, but you can do it. You’ve already accomplished so much and showed a lot of strength, life is yours to live my dear.
    Don’t ever let anorexia take away your beautiful soul and body.

  5. I’ve recently begun to enjoy reading once again now that the semester is over. It’s such a relaxing time passer and helps with stress tremendously.

    The dress looks fantastic on you, don’t let anyone tell you otherwise! Though I’m sure nobody would anyways. 😉

  6. hey girl! you look divine in that dress 🙂

    i was reading the forgotten novel too! too bad it was during finals so i couldnt finish it and i had to return it to the library 😦

    don’t tell me what happened!!!

  7. I adore reading too, I will have to make sure I read ‘The forgotten Garden’ once I really rekindle my love for books.
    You CAN stop this slip up before it spirals, you have the strength to stop this.
    Your prom dress is gorgeous! I wish I could find something so lovely

  8. I LOVE reading!!! 🙂 I am so excited to read more this summer…

    and I have every faith that you can stop this sliding in its tracks. Remember that you are worth it and that your life is so much more than just your body, and htat for you to accomplish all the things you want to do (and that you will do!) you have to treat your body kindly!

    Your dress is STUNNING! I am so jealous of your prom-dress-shopping… I SO want an excuse to twirl around in a beautiful dress 🙂
    hang in there love
