‘nothing tastes as good as skinny feels’
nothing feels as good as eating dinner with your family
on a Saturday night
laughing and talking and chewing
Nothing feels as good as baking cookies with little siblings
stealing bites of dough and chocolate chips
and eating one fresh out of the oven.
Nothing feels as good as curling up on the couch with a good book
and a steaming mug of creamy hot chocolate
with extra marshmallow
on a cold winter’s night
because you chose to be healthy
to get better
to see color again
because the little things make it worth the struggle.
You take your skinny, your bones, your hunger
