Let me take some time to introduce myself and tell you a little about the purpose behind this blog.
My name is Shira Moskowitz, I am 22 years old and I am in recovery for an eating disorder. I am studying journalism at CSUN and hope to be an awesome reporter one day.
Now ,I have a few reasons for why I am doing this blog. The first reason is to help myself. I have realized that if I am going to go on this journey of one entire year without a scale, I am going to need some kind of outlet to express every emotion I am feeling. What will those emotions be? I am not totally sure; actually, I am not sure at all. All I do know if that whatever it is I will be feeling and going through, I am going to post it all right here to document my journey.
The second reason I am writing this blog is to help others who are struggling like me. If you are someone who is battling an eating disorder, this blog is for you. If you are someone who has ever been at odds with the person starring back at you in the mirror, this blog is for you. If you are someone who has ever felt insignificant or undeserving of anything short of the best, than this blog is for you.
This blog is for those brave and courageous souls in the world-with or without an eating disorder, who have ever challenged themselves to do something and made the painstaking decision to stick with it and fight as hard as they can to make sure they succeed.
This blog, my fellow fighters, this is for us.

Shira, Hi there, I am a friend of your lovely sister Monique as well as your Uncle Ram and his wife Sharon and lovely family. I will believe with you to achieve your goal of overcoming your eating disorder. I will do something even more , and that is , to keep you in my prayers and ask our God who created us all , to restore you to the way He intended for you to become, and that is, perfect in His sight. You are one of His Chosen and He will not fail you. All that you have to do is just come to Him and ask what you will, and then have faith to believe and trust Him. PS: I met your Grandfather and we connected so much so, that he invited me to visit him in Israel and be a quest in his home. Blessing to you I send.
