Be your own best friend and don’t forget to wink at yourself now and then.

I went two months without

I went two months without purging.. and I went almost three... But then I slipped up right before reaching that mark.. I'm dying to get back there though... Now it's only been half a week...

Life is too short to not be happy

Wow 2x a month really is an

Wow 2x a month really is an improvement. You should be proud of yourself. The longest I've ever gone was 7 weeks. It's been years since that though. I purge at a minimum once a day, when I eat, and even sometime when I don't eat. :-(

i think the longest I've

i think the longest I've managed in the past 10 yrs is about 3 weeks too.. I really don't understand why I can't go longer. It's like I get this craving to do it.. like somehow I 'miss' it. But as soon as I lapse I am so disappointed in myself, which only makes me want to b/p more.

After an awful 5 days b/ping more than 3 times a day at the end of last week (the worst I'd been for a while, since I'd slowly been reducing the amount of times down to about 2 times a week max) i decided to come onto this site.

I just got to the end of day 2... really really determined that this is IT this time. 3 weeks will be the key time for me.. i can't even begin to imagine how i feel if I could go for 1 month, 6 months, a year, longer... I imagine it would be like HEAVEN :-)

Nothing ever happened in the past that can prevent you from being present now; and if the past cannot prevent you from being present now, what power does it have?

3+ months as of this year.

3+ months as of this year. Prior to that it wasn't ever more than a month a half. Recovery takes a lot of work, but it's so worth it.

I honor the place in You where the whole universe dwells and I honor that place in Me. When You are in that place, and I am in that place, We are One. Namaste.

I went 6 days and then f'd it up. 3 times same thing, but once a week is a good start I think :) Congrats to everyone on your progress!

Tapas Butterfly, I am about

Tapas Butterfly, I am about to hit day 14 tomorrow which is best I've been for AGES! I'm trying to do what the method suggests and not keep day counting every day, but I realised today that it's almost 2 weeks :0)

As others have said, I have so realised it's about the process of trying and getting a bit better each time, not feeling like you have 'failed' if you have one purge... Even if you don't make it past a week, a few weeks, whatever, as long as you're on the path forwards that's what matters. I am learning to listen to my body, exercise in a healthy way, and above all be kind to myself and it seems to be paying off slowly but surely :0)

lots of love to you all xxx

The longest stretch thus far

The longest stretch thus far in recovery has been 9 days.

Right now I am 'on a day 5' and am pretty confident I will get through and surpass it.

Don't know if anyone is still

Don't know if anyone is still reading this topic but I'm new here. Although it's been twonyears since this started for me I was more like once a month or every couple of weeks. However I've witnessed it's progression in me. I was getting to a more consistent weekly and then it was three times in a week and for the first time not because I was hungry or didnt want to care about not eating "bad" foods. It was intentional and aniexty driven. I knew I had no chance of beating this without help last week when I joined.

The longest I held off in the last two years was 6weeks

...but after reading the book, it's been a week with no restrictions or urges

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

I've gone 471 days. But that

I've gone 471 days. But that was a few years ago. Now I'm up to 28 days, and hopefully counting. It's really really hard.

Today marks my 2 month mark

Today marks my 2 month mark of NO purging (self-induced vomiting) - still in recovery mode (physically, emotionally and spiritually). Onward and upward! :-)

I am 57 and have been b/p for

I am 57 and have been b/p for 36 years now. There were times when I was caught in a cycle of b/p several times a day, but for the last 20 years I have mostly binged only occassionally , but find that I cannot without a fair bit of discomfort digest certain foods and must purge or have indigestion for hours, while other times I simply eat a handful more than is comfortable and frequently just purge to be comfortable or to go to sleep without waking up and having a major chest pains. My Doctor, unaware of the b/p says it is heartburn and not to eat past 8:00. That is the part that is hard. Worse, I am slim and these days even though I am doing fairly well not purging, I keep loosing weight. It seems that if I eat a healthy diet, I loose weight and if I eat badly I retain my weight, but often purge out of discomfort. I no longer have body image problems or feel I need to be thin, I just can't quite figure out how to eat properly. Of greatest concern is whether I have done any damage to my esophogus.
