new minivan, same old ED

We had a super great time at Adventureland! unfortunatly I'm a lamo and couldn't figure out how to take pictures with mt new phone so there are no pictures. Sorry.

We are still getting to know out new city. So far I like it tons better than Waterloo. Everywhere I go I see neat looking little shops and cafe's and I think "oh, I'll have to go there sometime".

Guess what? Someone in our church gave us a minivan! How cool is that, especially since my car just died!? They did it anonymously through the Bishop, so I don't know who it was. It's an older van, but it runs great and looks pretty nice, too. It is by far the nicest vehicle I have ever owned. I wrote a really lovely, heart-felt note of thanks to whoever gave it to us and gave it to the bishop to give to them. i just hope that whoever they are, they know what a blessing they have given us!

I had a few restrictive eating days, but am pretty much back to eating normally, but my mindset is still very ED. I am just having a really hard time with my body and I really want to lose weight blah blah blah. however, the days that I restricted were miserable! I don't really want to go back to that. I think i just want to go on one of those makeover shows where thay suck all the fat out of your body and give you a tummy tuck and straighten your teeth while they are at it. But of course that would not solve all my problems because then there is my brain, which will never be happy unless it has something to obsess over. Sigh.

Holy moly, a minivan! What a great gift. I'm sure the givers really appreciated your note.

Keep on keeping on - a move is a big stressor (as I'm still finding out).

Wow - a minivan, that's great!

I really resonated with you saying "my mind always has to be obsessing over something." Very true.

And congratulations on the move! Lisa (the other Lisa) is right - moves can be BIG stressors.

That is so nice. What a great person who did that. I am happy for you and I know that person feels SO GOOD for their gesture.

Aw, yay, I love when people do wonderful, generous, loving things like give your family that minivan. That was also so thoughtful of you to write the note back; I'm sure the note means a lot to them!

Glad you notice you don't like the effects of not eating enough; keep strong!
