4 days bulimia free!!!

by sara
(el segundo, california, usa)


I posted my story about 3 months ago. My name is Sara and I have been bulimic for 3 years. I'm 17. And today I proudly come here to say that after purging DAILY for 3 consecutive years, I finally decided to stop and this is my fourth day without binging or purging, and guess what? I feel great!!!

I always had planned to stop, but I just couldnt. I felt that my bulimia was already a part of me, and that I couldnt possibly live without it. I was my bulimia.

But a few days ago, I came back to my senses. I was staring at the mirror, and saw this stranger. I saw her semi-rotten teeth, her tired eyes, her dry skin and her puffy face. My only thought, "How did it come to this?" how did I let it come this far? this girl was not me. My boyfriend always tells me I'm beautiful, but this girl in the mirror is NOT. time for a drastic change.

So I woke up the next day with one goal. Today, I'll be strong. today, this won't get the best of me. today I'm a different, confident girl. it is never too late.

I never thought I could get this far. I know 4 days doesn't seem like much time, but after purging 4 times a day for 3 years non-stop, trust me, it's something like a miracle.

I wont lie, it has been a tough 4 days, but not so much that I cant handle. I feel... so good. Before i go to sleep, I wonder why I hadn't done this earlier in my life. I feel so much better. I feel more confident and healthy and powerful, and believe it or not.. I feel more beautiful than I ever did in the last 3 years of my life.

4 days now. I'm looking forward to so many, many more.
