    HEY, I don't have that many tips, because I have a lot of problems controling myself, but I think any support can help! I have been doing good for like five days, which is a record for me...and here are somethings that I have started doing...

    *I only eat when I am around people
    *I do not keep much food on hand...which can be difficult if you live at home with parents
    *I drink diet pop and crystal light when I "think" Iam hungry

    These are a few things that I have been trying to do...when I go home this weekend from college it is going to be hard...becuase I can hid and eat food...but I will just try to keep up!!! Oh and I like to write in a Journal when I have a bad day and read over it when I get the NEED to eat!

    I hope this helps

    Hi everyone!!!
    When I was sixteen I went a whole year without eating much of anything. My weight was excessively low. I knew exactly what I was doing... not being like my mother. My mother is obese, and she has now gotton to the point of not wanting to leave her house, and a lot of times it is just really physically hard for her. I can honestly say that I am actually at a healthy weight, that does not mean that I like what I see in the mirror. I am always complaining that I am getting fat. I have never been to the extreme of this disorder, but I can see why you do it. I actually have tried to inform myself of eating disorder's I always feel that I can relate to a point.

    I have a suggestion once again I don't know exactly how this must feel living with it day in and day out... but I thought come to the board. If you can't come, write it done and don't forget to post it. If you end up purging, don't feel ashamed admit that you did it, but tell someone. I feel this can make you more accountable for your actions, and maybe you will be able to stop.
    My prayers are with you always,

    The only thing I can honestly do not to purge is not to binge. If I eat a whole lot, I simply cannot keep it inside me, or I have to go to the gym. Try to eat a rational portion of food for a meal, and it will be much easier not to purge.
