Hit 40, only suffer from bulimia when hubby is out of town.

When my husband travels, which is at least once a month for 10 days at a time, I relapse and binge/purge. I have been an on/off bulimic since I was 16. I have never been skinny or huge... Probably always 5 to 10 lbs overweight. Today it's getting worse, that is my weight. I only slip into bulimic patterns at night... Once my daughters are in bed and I have time alone. I don't seem to fall in the same category as most posts as I only seem to be an occasional bulimic... But I am tired and feeling stupid for doing this for so many years off and on. I am 5'4" and weigh, yikes, X lbs. ( highest ever since pregnancies ). I just want to lose weight and don't seem to have enough will power to do so the healthy way. I run off and on, started tennis, bike on occasion, etc... But everything I do lacks consistency. I don't know where to turn to reach out for help. I can't tell anyone I know because I will lose face and feel stupid and weak. Can I fight this battle alone?
