Today one of my favorite girls was discharged. It was a little sad but everyone could tell she was ready and totally strong enough to get on with her life so that was awesome too.
I had a crappy-ish day. I woke up this morning and KNEW the day would suck because, lets face it, whenever the first thing I see out the window is rainy and apocalyptic, it's never a promising day. On the other hand however, I got to boast about my first weekend in treatment without binging!!! YAY ME!!! However I just ate quite a bit and I'm not sure whether or not it counts as a binge. I had a bag of reese's and three big cups of low-fat vanilla ice cream. I feel a little overly full, but not stuffed... after most binges I usually can't move so maybe I've made some headway?? Oh well. Something to explore tomorrow in group.
Oh and something else interesting- I've lost weight! How weird yet awesome is that??? You know I've never actually given my body a chance to let itself find a set point because throughout my whole teenage life I've either been slightly too thin from restricting or slightly too fat from binging. Who knows where I really belong? Not me. Anyway, I'm changing the subject now because I promised myself I'd only write 3-4 sentences about weight.
Oh oh oh! Yesterday I went running!!! IT WAS AMAZING. I don't count it as an ED behavior because: a) I didn't try to calculate how many calories I burned
b) It wasn't to purge after a binge
c) I didn't overdo it.
Hmmm... sometimes I wonder if I will EVER want to write about other topics in my blog besides ED stuff. I chose the name "Working on it" because I'm hoping that eventually it can apply to more than just my eating disorder.
