So, this week in my sesh’s, we talked about some triggers that have came up recently. The biggest of late is totally the lady Olympians. Life would be SOOO easier if they didn’t have to show to the world that this little skier or skater is x ft tall + weights x lbs. Blah. I know I am not the only one that feels this way. I can’t be. I know the whole, “you have different body type”,”don’t compare yourself to others, you don’t know what they have/are going through”,  “of course so-and-so-skater-chick has ED, look you can see her bones!” or here’s the best one “they are trained athletes, on strict diets”. Blah blah blah. But seriously, who’s little mind isn’t racking the numbers and trying to calculate their BMI’s at rate, I dunno; your self worth; on the comparison?

Then of course the McDonald’s commercials are sooooooo lamely retarded and inaccurate. I don’t know a single competing athlete that would even eat their salads – yet alone a Big Mac or Chicken McNuggets. Oh, please. My mind just wants to scream every time I see these commercials.

One of the blogs that I follow ED BITES by the ever so fabulous Carrie Arnold, wrote this post the other day (why I didn’t watch the opening ceremonies), and well – it really hits the nail with the hammer. Dead on.

So, I came to the conclusion, that since I kinda have tossed my self into a crummy place, and my mind keeps reverting back into the little corners of an ED-lifer – I am not going to watch any female athlete sport that posts their weight (especially when height it given too…) until my mind is “fixed”.

P.S. the US teams have scored us 20 medals thus far! Rockin! And I got this update from Chad Hedrick‘s wife Lynsey:

*SO* many special memories being made here in VanCity!!! To recap: Hadley said “dada” and started walking in the Pampers lounge, Chad won a bronze medal in the 1000 meter AND my baby brother is getting married!!!!

Woot! I am super bummed that they are moving to Texas after the Olympics are over. Hadley was my fave baby!
