In terms of the "distorted mindset," I mean so do I if I am being completely honest. But it comes down too when you know you're being rational and irrational. I.e., thinking "I can't eat that apple I'm going to gain 1348358982 lbs" versus thinking "eating this apple isn't going to kill me," and so on.Considering it’s been established that she checks SG and is very likely sick, I don’t think praising her body is going to do any good. Not the most appropriate comment, especially considering you acknowledged her having a “distorted mindset.”
I see this rationality in Lexi, although this is not say I don't see her irrational and more toxic or unhealthy or what have you behaviors.
Idk, maybe she is just really convincing that she knows what she's doing and won't go "overboard" for a lack of a better word.
I also feel like I can't judge her when I'm not too far off from her
