I struggled with Bulima for 30 years. I was sure I would never get better, expected that it would kill me, but what could I do about it. I was hopeless and accepted that this is just how I am.
Thank GOD for OA (Overeaters Anonymous). The 12-step program and working with a therapist and nutritionist over the last 6 months has saved my life. I am in recovery now. (it takes everyone different lengths of time!!)
Accepting that this IS A DISEASE – it is NOT your fault – was HUGE for me. If I had cancer, I would do whatever I could to get better. This is the same thing!!! Get help!! It will work if YOU work for it.
Let go and let GOD – – you can’t do it alone. Turn it over to GOD (or your higher power) – – recognize that when you’re taking control, you’re destroying yourself. Your higher power LOVES YOU and will help steer you in the right direction.
Sticking to a food plan is also actually VERY FREEING – – I expanded the foods that I “allowed” myself to eat by measuring, weighing, etc. and started ENJOYING food – – it was no longer my enemy.
You have to do the work – – it’s not easy, but it is SOOO important – YOU ARE WORTH IT!!!!
