I have struggled with bulimia for many years. I find the workbooks in the extra learning page useful for deciding what I will eat ahead of time – this gives me a tool to decide from a ‘calm’ headspace and then when I do binge/purge I can go back and reflect on what was going on in my head at the time. Before starting the program in Jan I would binge/purge at least 3 times per week, often more, despite having seen a psych for the last 6 years this had not changed. Since doing this work and really getting comfortable with being with my mind and all the crazy things it says and knowing that I dont have to respond I have found weeks have gone by and I have not purged..but sometimes I still do. Is there anything you suggest other than dong the work and when I do go back to that behaviour talking a good look and getting to understand what was going on? Thank you so much for your work and guidance. I am not ready to do a live call on this so this format works well for me.

When you binge/purge do not hate on yourself for it, not matter what you do not beat up on yourself for that, ever.
Remember, always remember, you never have to binge and purge ever again. No matter how much you eat. No matter what it is that you eat. You dont have to remove it from your body. Removing it won’t solve anything.
Compassion, intention, self reflection and starting today – you have got this, you are stronger than this, you are not at the effect of your mind.
Post here as much as you need. So much love xx
