I AM DONE first and foremost, being a fat girl (notice I didn't say THE fat girl).
I AM DONE living a life (in deed, in choice, in relationship, in circumstance) that supports my being fat.
I AM DONE living for yesterday and tomorrow while I let the riches, value and lessons in TODAY slip through my fingers.
I AM DONE living with my 'pretty face' (as pointed out by people who know it would be bad manners to comment on how fat I am).
I AM DONE making excuses for anything (my pain, my fears, my excesses, my lassitude, my vulnerabilities) keeping me from the life I was created to live.
I AM DONE eating food that is less than nutritious, or less than sublime in taste.
I AM DONE allowing my life to be shaped by a lack of decision.
I AM DONE not fully exercising both my body, and my choices.
I AM DONE being sick and tired of actually being sick and tired.
I AM DONE 'settling' in any manner, shape or form within myself, in my relationships, or with respect to my desires and dreams.
I AM DONE apologizing for who I am, what I want, what I need, or for my capabilities.
I AM DONE simply eating in response to the physical pain eating at me.
I AM DONE playing small, and shrinking into the boxes other people create for me.
I AM DONE living to satisfy the comfort level of others, while neglecting my own authenticity.
I AM DONE lying to myself, and as a result lying to others.
I AM DONE behaving as though my value in this world is equal to the sum of my imperfections.
I AM DONE minimizing how important certain things are to me.
I AM DONE worrying about how much I weigh - I no longer accept the number on the scale as a measurement of my worth, my success, or my lack thereof.
I AM DONE putting off what is important to me until 'the time is right'.
I AM DONE living with clutter on my body, in my house, within my relationships and throughout my life.
I AM DONE avoiding any opportunity to be all I am capable of being.
I AM DONE backing off, backing away, backing down and backing into.
I AM DONE choosing by default.
I AM DONE reacting to circumstances as though every moment of life was mine to control.
I AM DONE assuming (by default or otherwise) responsibility for others.
I AM DONE acting 'my age'.
I AM DONE stressing over what other people may think/say of me, and about me.
I AM DONE being simply comfortable, and mindlessly busy.
I AM DONE consistently putting myself at the bottom of every list.
I AM DONE being less than I really am for any reason what-so-ever.

I stretched out this picture window so that all of your done statements lined up, and each were on a single line. It is so powerul! Wow. :)

AWESOME!! Love your energy and attitude! I am done with all of this too and am free from the addiction of food. Food is fuel for my body now! Rock on!!
