Bulimia Recovery Temptations!
First, I would like to thank you for having this site! It has pulled me to the longest road of successful recovery than what I have ever accomplished. Reading your story and other people's stories give me so much hope and I feel as if I gained friends who can understand my disease through this site. Thank you, you are a wonderful person.
In my recovery, I am finding it hard to get back onto a normal eating pattern. I will eat really well for like two days and totally lose it for about three days. 'Totally losing it' doesn't mean I binge for three days, it just means that I eat way too much and the complete wrong foods. I've been eating big portions but not what I consider a binge.
During my recovery, it is really hard for me to stop eating the wrong foods once I start. I have been so tempted to binge over the past few days but I have refrained. I ate so much yesterday that I was sitting in front of the toilet but I somehow talked myself out of it! That is an awesome step that I beat bulimia in the crucial moment..that has NEVER happened! It has been almost three weeks since I have thrown up but I'm worrying that if I don't get the healthy lifestyle down, I'll resort back to B/P.
What motivated you to be consistent in your healthy lifestyle? What helped you avoid eating so much when you were at a family gathering or just out with your friends?
I am SO glad that you're pushing ahead with your recovery...
