It does not matter what issues fat is correlated with, because we don’t know how to make people thin in the long term.

When you diet, you tell yourself that you can’t be trusted, that your hunger (for love, pleasure, friendship) will destroy people. You begin to believe you are hopeless, a bottomless pit. This is not a kind thing to say to yourself. It is also not true. No one’s hunger is bottomless.

People who recover from eating disorders can’t be expected to have higher standards than the rest of society, most of whom would like to alter a body part or two. The difference now is that I’m no longer willing to compromise my health to achieve that. I’m not even willing to compromise my happiness to achieve it, or for the thought of my thighs to take up valuable space in my mind. It’s just not that important.
