Amazing, amazing job on 3

Amazing, amazing job on 3 weeks! How wonderful! You should be very, very proud! A few B/Ps are perfectly normal and the main thing to focus on is persisting with recovery and not giving up despite slip ups!

I am so sorry to hear about your dad :( I hope his treatment goes well and he makes a full recovery! It is perfectly understandable that you are worried and finding it is impacting on your recovery! I think the best thing you can do is try to continue with structured eating and trust in the bulimia help method and structured eating! Your B/Ps will get less and less and eventually you will recover! And that makes it all so worth it!

Anytime you need to chat please feel free to message me!

You can do this!!!!!!!!!!!!! xox

Claire, 4xs in 3 weeks is

Claire, 4xs in 3 weeks is awesome. Not sure where you started but that is probably better than the multiple b/p's per week or day that you were engaging in. Remember, it is the perfectionistic thinking that keeps us starting over at square one again. We fail to see the progress we've made even if it is just a baby step. Then we throw our arms up and say "screw it." Don't compare yourself to anyone else. Very few people recover without any slip ups and I think those stories sometimes discourage others because we compare our progress.
