Hi everyone, I'm Mandy, from Aust. I've had an eating disorder for 17 or so years (anorexia then bulimia). I've been on the program since April 2014 and this is my first post. Need a little inspiration.
I was doing so well for the first 4 months (had no urges, made sure I kept stress levels down, made sure I stayed away from triggers etc etc) but have had some slip ups (4 or more in the past two of months). I feel I have progressed in my recovery from where I started and am doing a lot better given the slip ups haven't been the typical binge and purge, - usually more like I ate too much to the point of feeling sick and then needed to purge - all an excuse at the end of the day I know.
I guess I just need someone to tell me that I haven't totally blown things with these slip up and I'm on the slippery slope back to bulimia. Each time it's happened I have learnt something and am more aware of my triggers etc so I guess that's something.
Has anyone else found they have slipped up along way before fully recovering?
