The Ana's Creed

I believe in self-control, as the only force mighty enough to bring order to the chaos that is my life.

I believe I am the most vile, worthless, and useless person ever to have existed on this planet, and I am totally unworthy of anyone's time and attention.

I believe anyone telling me differently must be gaslighting me.  If they really knew me, they would hate me almost as much as I do.

I believe in 'musts', 'shoulds', and 'oughts' as unbreakable laws to determine my daily behaviour.

I believe in perfection through thinness and starve to attain it.

I believe in salvation through trying just a bit harder than I did yesterday.

I believe in calorie counters as the inspired word of Ana, and memorise them accordingly.

I believe in bathroom scales as an indicator of my daily successes and failures.

I believe in the ABC diet, the lord the maker of thinness, that proceeds from the kitchen scales and the bathroom scales. With the kitchen and bathroom scales this diet is adored and glorified and has spoken through pro-ana.

I believe in burning calories every day and in any way I can.

I believe in complete restriction and starving as a way of life.

I believe in a wholly black and white world, being thin, the losing of weight, the recrimination of sins, the abnegation of the body, and a life ever fasting.
