My friends and I had eaten way too much pizza. I had been trying so hard to stick to this new diet plan but it was tough. I had been battling voices in my head telling me how fat I was for so long now that I could drown them out when I wanted to. I stood there feeling so fat, so full, so bloated….and then it came to me. I hunched over the toilet and slowly, meticulously put my finger down my throat. I gagged a bit, second guessing what I was doing and then sunk it down deeper. Then there it was, I threw up, at first feeling disgusted and then feeling empowered, and thinner already. I looked in the mirror as I splashed cold water on my face and into my mouth, washing away the memory of the pizza and bloated stomach.
