I don't want to jinx it, but I think I may have found my willpower again. Yesterday was day 3 with no binge and ended up on 350 cals. Today so far, I am already on 370 cals, although to be fair I have been awake for like... 6 hours and I'm going to have a nap now. I have some left over low cal thai curry from last night that I'm going to have later and then I should end up on about 700 for the day. Which I'm cool with. I'm easing myself back into it. I had three small eggs scrambled with no butter or oil, fried mushrooms, also no butter or oil and then a mango. Now, I know that it seems like it is a lot, but I have been craving scrambled eggs and I don't eat eggs. EVER. I haven't eaten eggs since I left Cape Town ten months ago. I don't do eggs. ANYWAY. And I went to the store to get eggs and mushrooms, and walking there I said to myself that I was allowed to get a small bag of Cheetos if they had them and by the time I got there, I was like. Ooo bitch, I don't need it, I don't want it. Nothing else for me. 

I need to get my scale so that I can start seeing the victories. VICTORIES! But I do feel like my face is less fat than it was three days ago, so I'm hoping to be somewhere around 60kgs when my scale arrives. I know I can't be more than 64, because I still have the thigh gap. So IT SHOULD BE FINE. Now, the title of my post. The longer I get into my normal eating and the emptier I am, the stronger I feel. Right now, after only three days and I'm sure there are going to be major hiccups before I get to 114lbs again, I feel invincible. I feel like I am stronger and more powerful than anyone else. I am Coco right now. And that is also the exact attitude that I am going to take to my book. I am strong. I will get published, even if I have to self-publish, cuz there are a couple of ways to do that successfully. I'm not letting anything stop me. 

I had this weird thought about my ex last night and I'm starting to wonder if I am losing my mind. But at the end of the day. It will only help the creative process. YES WE CAN!

i think i can finally comment. it only took installing a whole new browser that DOESN'T support my tumblr habits -death-
ive been awake sincce 7am so really it's been 5 hrs and i've had like 372 calories -sigh-
i might eat something soon. i freaking love the 'eat 6 small meals a day thing'. God, 1500 calories sometimes feels like a diet and sometimes feels like a chore. yikes.
i have like an addiction to salt. i've been retaining a shit amount of water. once i lost like 3 lbs the next day just because of SoDiuM, that's funny. sod-diem. like the diem day thing. a sodding diem, a sodding day. yup. that's sodium. perfect.
for someone who has a test in like 2 hrs and a half, i don't act like it. like 0% act like it.
...i had eggs like 2 hrs ago. dude, i've been eating an egg salad sandwich like 3-4 days of the week. i loveeee egg.
omg yes creative processssssesssssssss

I'm so happy for you. Your scale should be there any time now. I am going to get new batteries for mine today so I can see my damage I've done. I'm so glad that you feel stronger. I understand that feeling so well. Hope all else is well. Lots of love.

I will be the first one to buy your books! I love everything you write, you are just so honest about your thoughts.

I have been reading your blog for over a year but only had mine for a couple of months. I usually write about how much I hate people so if you're in a good mood, stay away :) But you are welcome to visit if you're pissed at the world and need to rant ;)

Congratulations on your little victories. :) And have fun with the novel! I've tried to write a few, but I get bored too easily. Hehe. But once ey're going, let me know, I'd love to buy one! You're so open with your opinions. I can't wait to see what you'll do with your novel.

I am so glad to hear you are doing well. Shoot pass some of that empowerment over here.

I know what you mean about the face feeling fat. For me I will pay more attention to my love handles before I do my face.

I think easing back into it is best. You can make it a habit again and then the body will be use to your eating habits and not want to eat so much.

Hope you are still going strong :-)

Good job on the no binge! I've also been able to refrain from binging this ENTIRE WEEK (amazing!) You can keep going! :D

sorry I've been so slack with my comments hun, but I have been reading everything, just usually too tired and out of my own head to leave a comment.
Just wanted to let you know that I'm still here and I still care and it's good to hear about you doing so well!
