I just joined this site and am finding my recovery to be difficult and would love to hear anyone with a similar situation who can relate.
I'm 28, have struggled since my teens with bulimia and a general food addiction. I havent binged or purged in over a year, which is amazing!
However, I have gained alot of weight and I'm constantly feeling horrible about my self esteem and don't feel the desire to socialize as frequently. I'm married and we are now focused on doing an organic lifestyle, so thats helping, to make sure I'm only eating healthy things. But, I really want to lose weight and just need some motivation and the weather certainly isn't helping.
I used to get such a high to binge/purge or just do a fast, but need to avoid that obviously, sometimes its just so hard to distract myself away from it, can anyone relate ?
