“But if I were thinner I would be beautiful”, She skips breakfast, lunch, dinner calls it intermittent fasting. Looking in the mirror, she swears she sees a rotund and putrid beast. “Just one more week...”. She’s delirious from lack of food and has delusions of relief But if she cheats, she only feels stronger in her deadly beliefs. Laying in the hospital, her arm as thin as the tubes that feed her reluctantly she tells the Nurse who is forcing her to eat: “But if I were thinner, I would be lovely if I were beautiful, everyone would love me” The Nurse says sadly, “Your weight is only gravity But beautiful is already what I see If you don’t have dinner tonight, you may float above me and no one will be able to catch you and that would be ugliest of all”.
