Inspiration, theatre, magic.

My name is Torie/Victoria. I love theatre and Harry Potter. I was diagnosed with anorexia a few years ago, went through a forced recovery, developed bulimic tendencies, started binging, gained a lot of weight, and became extremely depressed. Now, I'm trying to lose weight in a way that allows me to remain positive. I want to accept myself, and I want you to accept yourself. If you want to lose weight, do it for you, not for anyone else. And do it healthfully and with self-respect. I want us all to be confident with ourselves and comfortable in our bodies. So smile, and show the world how awesome you are.

› "You'll stay with me?" "Until the very end.": Anorexia is a fucking disease.

stayuntiltheveryend:

There’s a post going around of Kat Dennings with a quote that says, “I tried to be anorexic for four hours, and then I was like, I need some bagels.”

I like Kat Dennings and I’m sure she didn’t mean anything by saying this, but this sort of thing really bothers me.

Everyone pay attention:

YOU CANNOT BE ANOREXIC FOR FOUR HOURS. YOU CANNOT BE ANOREXIC FOR A FEW WEEKS. YOU CANNOT DECIDE TO “GO ANOREXIC” FOR A COUPLE DAYS.

It absolutely disgusts me when I hear people say things like, “Oh yeah, I was anorexic for two weeks once.” NO. YOU. WERE. NOT.

You went on an extreme diet. That is not anorexia, and saying it is is offensive to anyone who has actually had the disease. Don’t diminish it like that. Don’t play it off as something shallow people do to look good. Don’t ever talk about it like it’s anything other than a horrible disease that takes over your life and frequently results in death or irreparable bodily damage.

Bottom line: know the difference between a diet and a mental disorder.
