today i went to a movie by

today i went to a movie by myself. I also do things like hulga hoop, take my dog on a walk, meditate, bike, yoga, call a freind or family member to talk to or hang out with.

i am also getting better at learning when Ed is taking to me and I do the oppisite just like a Fu*K you to ed. LIke

ed:"you are getting bigger maybe you should restrict"
me: "nope I am giong to call my friend and we are going to go get veggie burgers and milkshakes and then we will go to a movie so i cant purge. you suck ed. all the rules you drilled into my head are wronge!! when i was so in my eaeting disorder i really wasnt tihnking clearly and it was so easy for me to believe what you say. now that i am getting farther and farther away from you i see that you are just full of shit!!"

you can do this. i also made a recovery took box and i print out things that inpire me. i have a bunch of lists in there that says things to do instead of binge.

i highly recommend the book bulimia a recovery guide in the back it has a 2 week binge free plan its how i got started on such a good roll

Read your status. That is a

Read your status. That is a great start. You know exactly what ED wants but you're denying him the satisfaction. AWESOME! It seems like the people that do really well have found something healthy to replace all the unhealthy behaviors. Tapas ^^ got into hula hooping. I learned how to knit, in addition to my running and lifting weights. Many have found meditation and yoga helpful. The common themes seem to be activities that provide exercise and keep our hands and minds busy. Something you enjoy so you'll stick with it. What is something you've always wanted to try? Now would be a great time to give it a try!

And at that critical moment when the urge is so strong you feel like it's impossible to fight it (we've all been there...), it's been suggested to rate the urge, and realize it follows the bell curve, meaning it will peak and then dissipate. It will only be a "10" for a brief time and it will go away. Maybe it is true hunger and you should have a mindful meal. Maybe it isn't physical hunger and you just need to get over that peak then figure out what you are truly "craving".

This is what I'm working on today so I'll be following my own advice. I'd love to hear what you try, and what works for you today!

No binge tastes as good as HEALTHY FEELS!

I took a nap. I had to urge

I took a nap. I had to urge to bp so bad and couldnt think of anything else to do to get my mind off of it. I slept for a while too, like 2 and a half hours, but they, thats how long a typical bp session is for me and then it would have led to more later on in the day...
