7) If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
Paris, France
8 ) What is/was your biggest fear food, and how will/did you conquer it?
pasta, pasta, pasta..while it's still a fear food, the fear level is subduing.  The more I eat it, the better I feel about it.
9) What are your dreams for life after ED?
college, fashion, internships, NYC, traveling, happiness, and health :)
10) What advice would you give to someone concerning eating disorders?
You can deny all you want, but the life you are living with an eating disorder is actually not a life at all.  There is so much potential in one life, and to waste it by letting food and weight consume the mind is a terrible tragedy.  Live your life.  Pursue your dreams.  Don't curl up into the comfort of an ED, because that's the easy way out.  Fight for your life, because it's worth fighting for!
Thanks to Ayla, Vanilla, and Lexi for passing this on to me!
