The Ten Commandments
If you aren’t thin, you can’t be attractive.
To be thin is more important than to be in good health!
You have to do everything to look/get thinner.
You shouldn’t eat without feeling bad.
You shouldn’t eat “fat makers” without taking countermeasures.
You should count calories and adjust your food intake.
The numbers at the balance are more important than everything else.
Loss of weight is GOOD, gaining weight is BAD.
You never can be too thin.
Refusing to eat and being thin are signs of real success and strength

The creed
I believe in control, the one and only real power, powerful enough to bring order to my life full of chaos.
I believe that I am the most useless, most worthless and meanest person, who exists on this planet. I do not deserve to be noticed or to get some attention.
I believe that other people, who claim the opposite, are idiots. If these people saw, what I am really like their, their hate would be as powerful as my own.
I believe in “should” and “must” as the impenetrable laws to keep up my behavior day in, day out.
I believe in perfection and do everything to obtain it.
I believe that I can only reach my salvation by striving for perfection. I believe in tables of calories and memorize all values exactly. I believe in my scales, as the measuring instrument of my daily success and failure.
I believe in hell, because I live in it. I believe in a world which is only black and white, in the loss of weight, the remission of all sins, the refusal of flesh and in a life full of hunger.
