I would like to announce to the entire world (or, you know, the two people who read this blog) that I successfully bought a swimsuit. Not only did I buy one but I think I will be willing to wear it in public and I actually kinda sorta even think I look cute in it. Guys, I haven’t worn a swimsuit in six years and an attempt to buy one last year ended in an epic meltdown. So this is kind of a big deal. My body dysmorphia still gets the better of me at times (ahem, wedding dress fitting) but I am fighting back and am finally making some progress. I’m kind of awesome. Just sayin’.

Also, stay tuned for a series of blog posts on communicating about eating disorders.
