You're making a big decision you're allowed to be worried <3
This kind of positive reinforcement is exactly what goes on in the eating disorders forums. It's really not ok. It's actually quite much, and slightly neurotic/obsessive. Her mind would be much better off relaxing and reading a book, than constantly reading and posting on TLS. Believe it or not, this kind of behavior is bad, and should not be reinforced.
However, had I realized how helpful this forum is 8 months ago, it's possible/likely I would do the same thing. But that doesn't mean that kind of behavior is good for a person. It's not. I would hope someone in my family, friends, or BF would call me out on irrational behavior that is clearly affecting me in a negative way. I'm all for learning; don't get me wrong, but in a healthy non obsessive kind of way. Although, all I do is obsess these days, but I know it’s unhealthy, not necessary, and not helping.
