Okay, how can I get out of this vicious binging and purging cycle that’s become a habit? Bulimia used to work well for rapid weight loss but after a little over a month this time, I’ve barely noticed a difference. I’m becomming extremely desperate and panicked, especially considering that after battling anorexia to my ultimate 80 pounds and consequently forced to eat, the slightest weight gain sent me into an ’all or nothing’ depression where I gave up completely and resorted to lying in bed for 3 months, waking only to eat binge-quantity amounts many times each day so that I’d be able to fall right back asleep. I finally broke this habit and began purging regularly after the binges I’d practically addicted myself to, and even though in the past bulimia has caused rapid weight loss for me, this time things are moving incredibly slow. Since my terrible decicions have affected my body in an unacceptable way I must start losing this weight a lot quicker. Any tips or advice? Much needed and greatly appreciated!

Bulimia is a disease... it is sometimes have more risk than the risk of obesity itself. I know your body weight and shape is of interest and importance to you, but I think going into cycles of eating, vomiting, not eating is not the solution.

My suggestion is that you see a doctor who will help you get rid of these cycles and put on you the right track to start loosing weight. Do not harm yourself and loose your life in the sake of loosing your weight.

Good Luck

I once took a psychology class with a girl that anorexia. We all knew, but no one, of course said anything. One day we were covering eating disorders and she actually brought it up. She said she started because one day she was eating pasta over at her parents' house and she went for a second helping and her dad asked her if she really needed another helping and that it appeared that she had put on weight since the last time he'd seen her. She couldn't get it out of her mind. From there, she loved the attention of people saying, "Have you lost weight?" or things like that. Now she has a disorder, (or had depending on if she's still alive). We think that thin is the way to go, but healthy is the way to go. Not keeping your food in you isn't healthy.
It sounds like you have an addiction that is taking over. You have an image in your head that makes the perfect you. You can't be anything, but yourself, though. If it's this hard and has such terrible side effects than it just may not be who you are supposed to be.
Some people are just naturally thin. They can work out a little and stay tiny. Some people can just about kill themselves at the gym and still not seem to loose the weight. It just depends on how your body wants to go.
Just try and focus on being the best you that you can be and you'll likely find that any extra weight won't even matter. It's likely that you are plenty thin right now anyway. I hope that you understand that being beutiful is a lot more than just the way you look.
I wish you the best of luck and hope that you get past this difficult time.

You're body is probably clinging on (with dear life) to the food when you binge, you will start to digest food as soon as you eat it! That is not a bad thing - it keeps you alive!

Please just force yourself to eat a healthy diet and not purge after. Just one meal a day, even if it's just a salad. It will feel bad at first but if you continue to eat like this you will find you can lose weight again as your body no longer thinks your trying to kill it!
