this reminds me i made my first genuinely huge friend a couple of years ago, and while she never talked much about weight, i think deep down she was convinced she ate more or less the same as the rest of us.
for months, she got intense, persistent stomach pain because of anxiety. once she had removed the cause of anxiety it went away and she started eating more… said she was so excited to "eat well".
however, most of those scrumptious meals were convenience store garbage. tons of carbs, bags full of terrible quality bread/pastries, mediocre microwave meals that were the same price as the cheapest (yet delicious) food in the neighborhood. lots of bad chain restaurants like mcdonalds and some shit italian too.
she really saw herself as some kind of "foodie" when she was constantly eating copious amounts of the worst version of everything.
i wouldn't be surprised if she either 1) just quietly keeps gaining weight until she's officially death fat or 2) adds HAES/bo-po to her laundry list of instagram activism.
