I used to long for a quick and easy way to cure bulimia. I wanted to take a pill and wake up well...
But I knew, deep inside me, that recovery had to come from my own persistence and effort...
I knew that bulimia recovery meant learning to to treat myself with love and kindness, learning how to accept my body and learning how to eliminate the urges to binge...
I knew it would take time to learn all of these things. After all, I was going to be learning a whole new way of living. I gave up on my dreams of a quick and easy way to cure bulimia - and I began to walk with little steps, towards recovery.
In my case, it took many months to cure bulimia... But it was entirely worth it. I've been healthy and happy for over 7 years :)
In my journey, I learnt a meal time tip that helped me to re-connect with my body and listen to my signals of hunger and fullness...
With practice, it helped me to be present while eating and to get great satisfaction from normal amounts of food.
