After I graduated from high school, my _______ to be “thin” began to trouble me. I began trying to diet by _____ my food.

In the beginning, I felt great—attractive and successful, almost superhuman. I even thought that I was better than everyone else. What I didn’t see was that I was slowly _____ myself.

People around me began to _____ my weight loss. They said with concern. “You’re losing too much weight.” “Elisa, you’re so thin.” All their words only suggested that I was getting closer to “_______”.

Sadly, I took my physical _____ the first important in my life, _____ that it was the way to become successful and accepted.

Then I cut down my ______ more and more, until a ______ day consisted of half a teaspoon of nonfat yoghurt and coffee in the morning, and a cup of grapes at night.

But my poor ______ began to cause me to lose ______. Then one night, like many nights before, I couldn’t sleep, and my heart felt as though it might beat out of my chest. I tried to  ____, but I couldn’t. The beating became so rapid and so strong that I could no longer ______. What I had done to diet nearly caused me to have a heart attack. I stood up, and immediately fell down. I was really ______, and I knew I needed help. My roommate rushed me to the ______, beginning the long road to my ______. It took a lot—doctors, nurses, nutritionists, food supplements...

And most important, a sense of what was true about myself got back on track with reality. I realized that, with my ______ of trying to be “perfect” on the ______, I had sacrificed who I was on the inside. What I know now is, we are—each and every one of us—already perfect.
