I'm a 20 year old recoving bulimic, and I am obsessed with food, my weight and everything in between! I am very harsh on myself even though I am considered healthy. I am 5'7 and 140lbs to date. I want to be 130-135 again. I see an Eating Disorder specalist weekly and I am trying to stay on the track to recovery and just be happy with who I am but it is hard. I live alone, work full time as a Rental Rep, and am currently dashing myself for eating practicall 4 doughnuts last night AFTER supper and finish off the other 3 this morning. I don't know why I do this to myself... As soon as I have these binges I automatically go into a depression. This self-inflicting cycle is what I go through on a daily basis now and I am determined to stop it. I am not asking for sympathy or a guilt trip, I am just looking for advise and just an understanding third person to dicuss these problems with. I fear if this does not get dealt with it will continue to ruins none related parts of my life, such as relationships with loved ones..View Thread
