Hi - i split up with my boyfriend almost a year ago and turned to food for comfort having put on almost a stone after 6 months - i had a serious word with myself in the summer last and got back on track as i am a real gym enthusiast normally have lots of willpower (still only lost about 7lb of the stone as i had a binge day probably 2 days a week but could get myself back on track the next day)- normally i have a great balanced diet - all natural foods lots of veg and protein daily(although always loved chocolate and cake as anyone) - towards christmas my ex has been in touch and its knocked me completely back and day by day it is getting progessively worse -rather than my one binge day, its now evreyday and i cannot pick myself up as before, i have been taking laxatives for over 4 weeks everyday (which i have stopped as one of my doctors orders going forward) this week alone i have spent £30 on chocolate and biscuits that i eat from my handbag at work so no one sees, on my drive home then once i get into bed and i cannot stop until i am sick or i feel in physical pain. I saw the doctor this week as i worked out some days my daily calorie consumption is about 3000-5000 but it does not make me want to stop! She said i have Bulimia and gave me some things to read but i feel like i do not really know what to do now. I have been talking about it to my friends trying to understand what i am doing and the day starts well and as soon as i eat my lunch i start again and cannot stop until i am in pain and/or sick - sneaking off to the shop as the 2 packets of biscuits havent filled me enough as i want them too. I just wondered if anyone else has felt like this and any tips on how to change my mind set to get things back on track would be very much appreciated..! xx
