I'm a Socialite!

One thing I absolutely love about not being consumed by my eating disorder 24/7 is being social and ENJOYING IT (as opposed to dreading it!)

I went to coffee with Court, who is like my little sister. She moved away in August for school and it was so nice to catch up! She blew me away with how much she's matured, especially now being independent and on her own. 

Then I went to Trader Joe's and did some shopping. I'm such a dork but I love grocery stores, which I've mentioned before- especially health food stores! I could probably spend all day there browsing the aisles.

I dropped by Starbucks (I didn't have coffee when I was there with Court!) and got Mo and I drinks. I spent the afternoon at her apartment helping her go through her closet, choosing with clothes fit and don't fit anymore since she's been on some major (and much needed) weight restoration. I'm so proud of her because I know how difficult it is to try on clothes that now fit differently than they did before. Even though it was a bit stressful for her, we ended up having a good time and laughing a lot (about what, I can't really remember!). 

After I hung out with Mo, I had dinner with Courtney (different person then the Court previously mentioned!) and Andi at Courtney's house. Andi and I met Courtney in our group therapy and clicked, switched numbers and thought it would be fun to get together and make dinner. We ended up eating all vegan food from Trader Joe's which worked out for me. We ate tofu edamame nuggets, quinoa and veggies, and eggplant, and enjoyed a glass of Chardonnay. We ended up talking until really late. We all three have so much in common outside of our eating disorders, like our faith and interests, so it was so nice to connect on a variety of levels. 

I will say eating dinner was a bit of a challenge for me. I haven't had so much food at once, usually eating smaller amounts every two hours, and my stomach wasn't exactly ready for the challenge. However, I didn't want to be the only one who didn't finish and possibly make the other girls feel uncomfortable or triggered in any way. Definitely had some major stomach pain for hours after the meal! I hate the refeeding process.
