From CHO REVOLUTION.

I went on one diet, my last diet I ever went on. I ate only persimmons for six months
and... I was driving in my car, here in LA. And it was about 4 in the afternoon, so there was like a lot of traffic and um.
And I was driving, kinda rockin' out ♪Holiday. Celebrate♪ And I realized..... I AM GONNA SHIT RIGHT NOW!!
And it caught me off guard. Because normally you have a good twenty minutes. There's this window of opportunity where you know to start looking for a Barnes and Noble or some kind of....equivalent book/music superstore that, you know, we all take that for granted, but I did not have that luxury, no I'm gonna shit right NOW!
No I'm not. no no no. No I'm not not gonna shit no ahhhahaha no no no no no no
I'm holding my ass SO TIGHT. I made a diamond in there. Which was not my best friend. And then it became crystal clear, that indeed.. I am gonna shit right now. I am.
What's with this masquerade? It's, it's only me and I am, I am mm hmm, yeah I shall. I will. Indeed. Yeah. And I just have to let go and let God because, it's bigger than me and um, He has a plan which includes this and I pray for the understanding that one day I will know why but until that day comes I'll just trust that he does work in mysterious ways. Yet I'm still trying to bargain a little bit like oh I'll just let out...... compromise myself .. just a little bit, just a little bit, just let out a little bit, I'll just let out a little bit, a little bit... ♪ Holiday♪ I turn that off. I don't' wanna get some weird, you know, Pavlov dog association with that song.
And um, I let out a little bit. *laughing uncomfortably* AND IT ALL CAME OUT AND I COULDN'T STOP IT OH GOD I WANNA STOP IT SO BAD AAAAAAHHHHH! OH NO.
And there was a point near the end where..... I could have stopped it.
But by then I was like, "Why Bother? Live a little" I just had trusted in, you know, these images for so long that you know I just bought into what the media was telling us about what women should look like. And they don't tell you in the diet books that this food plan might make you SHIT YOUR PANTS!
Caveat emtor. And because I thought I was fat, I thought I was ugly, I thought I was unloveable, I believed in what the media said, I believed what my father said, and I just thought that I was just gross, and that um I didn't accept my body as I was made, and I was now paying the price. By sitting. in a .. pool. of my own shit. ....Which was getting cold. The only thing left to do at that point was to call people. Okay you better call. me. right back, because you are not gonna believe what I just did. I am in my car right now. I just shit my pants! And I'm comin' over!
