First off.. No offense but u sound a little undereducated on bulimia. How long have u been bulimic? I have been for 2 years, and one thing I know is its not just a way to ‘not get fat’. In fact, it actually in many ways makes u gain more weight in the long run. It slows your metabolism majorly.. And then the longer you do it, the slower your metabolism will get and each time you eat it wil just learn to hold on to your calories quicker. Then if u want to eat normally, it wont know ‘normal’ anymore and can cause u to gain. Seriously its not just to ‘not get fat’ it’s a disease……u prolly would weigh even less believe it or not if u just ate normal and healthily if you could do it, which you can, it would just take work. But yea im not sure how long you’ve had it, it just didn’t seem like you know the real facts about it. And I definitely would not recommend purging for a long time after your nose job…im sure it could mess things up, and your nose will be very sensitive of pressure…. By the way, im kari , 18 and have had both anorexia and bulimia between the 2 for 2 years. I am 33 weeks pregnant and trying to recover.

Wow...Thats great...Bulimia made you lose weight..Yeh just kidding..Bulimia is bad bad bad bad, no way around it, I bet if you watched what you eat went on a 1200 cal diet, worked out, you'd lose much faster than doing bulimia- beside do you really like the puffy eyes, and face look? Not to attractive, i've been there I know. And like metioned above- before I had bulimia- I actually was iddy biddy I weighed about 110, and i'm 5'6 and tat was from eating healthy and wroking out...Little too small, but once I started becoming bulimic..I ballooned and now weigh 145 never in my life weighed that much sooo it really has no benefits, unless you call getting new teeth, and your heart monitored perks than hey whatever. But noone here wil support your bulimia- because nothing good comes of it. I'm not trying to be harsh, ok I am being harsh- but you need to put your health first.

I agree tho. It might help u slim at first. But the longer u keep it up....U will gain it back. A healthy diet would keep u much thinner.

Omg.....Ur going about this allllllll wrong. That will do the same thing!! Not eating healthy slows ur metabolism. Period. Wether its bulimia or restricting. The only way to keep your weight down permanetly and look good is to eat a healthy diet.. Like at least 1,200 cals at the lowest.. But 1,500 is better. And make it healthy foods. And eating at least 3 times a day. If u eat less then that, it also slows ur metabolism. Havent u read on this kind of stuff? Eating disorders may make u lose weight at first.. But they do slow your metabolism and eventually u will gain it back or not be able to lose anymore. If u eat healthy, its more permanate weight loss. An eating disorder isnt just a way to lose weight. Its a disease.

I Tried Eating Healthy And Excersize
I just started benging and purging because I have tried eating healthy and excersize. I do not go over the limit on any foods, and I excersize on a regular basis. I have two kids and even after my second I have never weighed this much. Between school, work, kids, and excersize I should not be over weight. I weigh 147 lbs, and I am only 5'2 I am by far the largest women in my family and just gained the extra 40 lbs in the last year, so why dont you try to tell people another way of losing weight because a healthy diet and exersize does not always work, if it does, then why have I gained so much, my son is three and im just now gaining, does anyone else see anything wrong with this. I want fast results and I beleive that throwing up the food that I eat will help me to succeed. I take a multivitamin every day, and I volmit after every meal or even once a day, only when I feel like maybe I ate too much today, even if its the healthy foods.

I Am Impressed
I am really impressed by you: what is wrong with you? You are completely ignoring the fact you are seriously ill and I must say you do appear to me to be "a bit superficial" and only worry about your new nose. You are seriously ill and damaging your heart, your everything so severely- and if you do throw up you new nose will be damaged as you are creating such a pressure.

this entire post completely floored me. first off- theres people asking others how to throw up?! what?

second- im not sure who it was, but someone said to go on a 1200 calorie diet.. have we not realized from the ED's that diets are NOT GOOD FOR YOU. Especially ones where youre eating less than you should be- because yes, you'll lose weight- but as soon as you start eating a healthy amount again, youll gain it all back.

If anyone is interested in helping themselves, or needs someone to talk to (not to motivate them to get worse, as many people are doing here), then PM me.

I dont think ill be coming back here.. but id be more than happy to talk to anyone.. self-help
love to all, and good luck

if i were you i would see a dr, and another thing this is not a forum to exchange deadly diet tips, so you can take that somewhere else not on here. I would suggest seeing a dr and nutritionist, if youve dieted and everything and lost no weight you might want to have your thyroid checked. bulimia is a serious illness and can kill you

bulimia
bulimia is not ok, trying to be like that is wrong becuse the ppl who actually do suffer from it are more scared than anything else.
Fear is a huge part of the illness, fear of fat and actually fear of food as well.
the last person to message this place was right real bulimics have a problem, thats speaking from experience.
first of all eat! because otherwise your metabolism will become too slow.
ive been bulimic for nearly 3 years and its not fun and games, it's a F***ing mental disorder and its scary.
if you want to lose weight take adios, it does work!
If not and your really concerned about your weight drink ice cold water it speeds up your metabolism, and if you do think you have an ED go and see your dr straight away because it's really not something you want hanging over your head.
I am starting to see a councellor, a dietition and a nurse all because of bulimia.
Bulimia is not something to be commercialised as a weight lose plan, you can't possibly understand it unless you have had to deal with it. It isolates you from friends and family, and gives you endless health and social problems!
Just don't let it happen to you, most bulimics know they have a problem, they know they have no control over food or their emotions.
The only reason I got help was because I completely broke down in college, otherwise I would still be slowly breaking.
If you know anyone who you believe suffers from an ED the best thing you can do is wait for them to have a mini break down (when everything has got to much and they uncontrollably cry and you know completely break) then they will be most likely to tell you everything, you have to act quickly when this happens because recovery will mean putting the walls back up! Call their GP and get them help while their admitting they have a problem.

heart failure
kidney damage
hair loose
broken blood vessels in the eyes
stomache rupture
tooth decay
death
brittle nails/skin/hair
swollen glands
stomache ulcers
bleeding and tearing of the esophagus

Bulimia
hey i only need to lose a couple of kg's and i'm not much of a weight conscious person. i have tried basically everything. staying on a diet is hard and going to the gym only kills very little of your weight which can be easily be put back on when i have exams or something.

my friend was a bulimic last year and she lost alot of weight. i often get teased standing next to her and i feel awful. i feel like this is my only way out. i'm 70 kilos and i'm only 16. there really isn't another way.

calorie counts are quite hard when you live in a family like mine since the food we eat is not exactly counted as fattening or healthy in any way and its basically impossible to keep count of all the calories in an indian meal.

is there any way that could help me? i have lost all hope for the gym. i only need to shrink down a size or two?

i hear fat people can easily lose weight a little faster than thin people and its proven.

anorexia is a little harder to do since i do love my food.

i hate throwing up cz it makes me feel awful sick. and chewing gum can help me regain my strength. chillies also give you a fast metabolism and its the only kind of food found in my house. so i think its a good choice right?

Please look into the side effects of bulimia before you decide to try it as a weight lost solution. I knw the weigh loss part soundz quiet pleasing and tempting but its not all good. i have been suffering from this for 6 years and yes at first i lost alot of weight but then reality hit me when all the side effects started to kick in. Its weird bcuz i thought i would only do it for a few months to loose abit of weight but before i knew it, it became an addiction. Its been 3 mnths since i have stopped and yes i have gained weight but im hoping its worth it... its easy to get back into the same routine when people say u have put on weight but sometimes we have look at the end result of this disorder which can lead to death and this shuld encourage us all to stop.
