Happy Friday, ladies! Yay, another weekend is upon us! I am so excited for this weekend–it’s another one at home, which is always fun and busy. This one involves grocery shopping 😀 , possibly making dinner and…oh yeah, a trip to urgent care. Say what? Yeah, my foot still hurts when I walk or stand on it, and since I didn’t have time to get back home today to get it checked out, I have to go into the urgent care tomorrow to see what’s up with it. Probably won’t be the funnest way to spend a Saturday morning, but I wanna get it taken care of, whatever the problem is.
Ummmmmm so yeah, according to RealAge, I’m 16 and a half. Right on. I must be doing something right. Except, honestly, when I was 16 1/2, I wasn’t that healthy. That was actually the height of my eating disorder–so I was starving myself and my mind was in an awful place. So I’m psyched that my “real age” health-wise is two and a half years younger than my actual age, but I’m glad I’m not actually 16 1/2, or I’d be so messed up. I know I haven’t talked much about my anorexia on here, but I’d really love to hear your feedback on whether or not you’d like a post or two on my ED history. I know a lot of you out there struggle with it (or have struggled with it) too, so maybe you’d like to hear my personal story. Just let me know, k?
Anywho, this is just a super-quick update before I head home. I’ll let you all know about the foot situation, what I made (fingers crossed it turns out amazing) and what else went down this weekend. Oh yeah, and it’s totally Homecoming weekend here which is ironic since I’m going home 😛 Last year the HC festivities were fun and all, but this year my parents couldn’t make it up here so I decided just to head back down and spend the weekend at home. But…go Rams at the game tomorrow! We will be kicking some San Jose State butt…hopefully 😉
What are you up to this weekend? Would you like to hear more about my eating disorder story?

I like hearing about people’s eating disorder stories. I haven’t really shared mine on my blog… every time I mention it I get some email about someone worrying about me. It’s actually really annoying, as if they think I don’t know how to handle myself or something. Still, if you want to share it, I would be totally up for it because I can relate!
Oh yeah, I can definitely see where that could get annoying. I wish people could mind their own business, ya know?
Dude I took that quiz and supposedly I’m 4!! Haha crazy 😉
I’d love to hear your story. Personally, when I shared mine, I felt like I got a lot stronger since SO many bloggers could relate. Whatever you decide, I still look so forward to your posts lady 🙂
Have an amazing weekend!and, even though I’m not at CSU anymore…GO RAMS! 😀
Bahaha 4?! That is so crazy but awesome–it’s a perfect excuse to act like a little kid 😉
Awh, thank you! I always love all your posts too! And yes…GO RAMS 😛
I’m skipping the homecoming festivities at my school too.
I would love to hear your story, only if you’re comfortable with sharing it of course.
I think I’ll definitely share it, just because I know a lot of people out there (unfortunately) can relate!
Hey girl, just found your blog and really like it! Looking forward to reading more 🙂
Have a wonderful weekend and fun cooking!
Hey thanks for checking out my blog! Have a great weekend yourself 🙂
i’m glad i’m not 16 1/2 too! for the very same reason. I’m glad for both of us 🙂
I’m so glad that we’re both much healthier now 😀
Lol,I just took the test,too,and it said I was 17.7! 😀
I’d be very interested in your ED story. It’s so admirable to share something like that because it takes a lot of strength and honesty!
Haha this test is so silly 😛
I would be interested in hearing your story! You might get some snarky emails just to warn you though. But I like hearing other people’s journeys , as I am working through mine still 🙂
Yeah, I’m kinda expecting some negative feedback, but I think the positive responses will definitely outweigh the negatives!
It’s true, “snarky” emails are something to be prepared for!
If you are comfortable I would love to know more! I know it’s difficult to share with the public and a lot of things need to be considered, but if you need to share your story you will know and feel that it is the right thing to do! You have many supportive readers and we will support your story and I am sure many of us could relate, too 🙂
I know it’ll definitely be hard to share, but I’m ready to get it out there and I’m hoping for mostly positive responses. Thanks so much for your input!
Girrrl I hope your foot feels better soon. I def know what thats like and it is so not fun. Oh being 16 and a half. That was the year I thought I was so cool because I could drive. It got old quick. Actually people think I look like I’m 16-18, and I’m just like uh what I’m 21. People these days. I would love to know more about your story. As a dietetics student, it’s always beneficial to learn from others, so in the future I can help before its too late or gets too extreme.
Thanks 😀 People tell me I look like I’m
in high school all the time and when I went to urgent care, the guy directed me to the pediatrics desk and I’m like um I’m 19 haha!
whether or not you share your story, i’m glad you are better 🙂
Awh, thank you 🙂
I took that a couple weeks ago and it said I’m 16.2 (and I’m actually 18). Thank goodness I’m not 16 again (uhm- i’d be back in school. NO THANK YOU! I’ll stick with college and being actually healthier now than I was back then).
I would love to hear about you’re story! I think sharing stories about our struggles really helps everyone connect and the responses are amazing. Hope you do share it!
Have a great rest of your weekend!
I’m so with you–college is wayyyy better than high school!
I am definitely going to be sharing my story. I completely agree that it builds a connection with other readers and I’m glad so many people are interested.
Im sending you and your foot healing thoughts<3 I hope youll feel better soon!
And I would actually lover to hear more about your ED! I never struggeled with anorexia, but it is so interesting to hear others stories! Also, Im so happy that you are in a better place now! Shows how strong you are!
Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
Thanks hon 🙂
I love hearing other’s stories too so I’d love to open up and share mine for the same reason.
