My sister had this on her blog:
It's a mystery to me why anyone would do this to themselves but I have been self-destructive at times and still am occasionally but--
We tend to look at these people and think, "Well, at least I am not that fat" and feel more OK about how big we are. Have you ever glanced around a room and thought, "that person is bigger than I am"? I have. Not proud of it. Now that I have been in this battle for so long, I am much more compassionate than I used to be. Blogging has helped. People are hurting and dying over this. Now I know how that person feels and am more aware of my own weaknesses. I could be that big too. I know it. That word "but" doesn't let me off the hook. That word doesn't mean it's OK to be obese because someone else is bigger than I am.
Let's weigh in the morning and make that our starting point. Regardless of what we have done or not done through the holidays - it is still our starting point.
