I just got back from a trip with some friends in New Orleans and at first it was really hard trying not to obsess about food, but by the end, it became much easier. I noticed the way my mood changed and I thought I would share it:Wednesday and Thursday was hard-it was hard not to obsess, especially since we ate a lot of fast food and it was hard for me to find to find food that I deem "acceptable" to eat; Friday was much easier-we went to a sit-down restaurant with really good authentic creole food. While I was eating Friday, I was at once puzzled and almost amused at myself, because while I was enjoying the yummy food on Friday, I almost felt like I was betraying my ED-that it was wrong to not want to be sick and to want to enjoy myself, especially since many of the foods that I was having were ones that usually fall into my "unacceptable" category. Fortunately, I kept on eating, because I knew that was faulty thinking and now I'm feeling pretty proud of myself and hopefully this feeling will continue for a while.
