What did you do to make yourself throw up? Be cause It really depends on that. I've had friends take certain medicines and drugs to make them puke and they all had different ways of getting help and Quitting. But my best advice is to see a councilor or doctor. Someone you really trust. Believe me, they can help.
I'd like to know more about your probs. Mail me!

Its great that your getting help. Not only does throwing up feel gross. it can sometimes make you gain weight. yep. so your not only slowly killing yourself, you might be gaining more weight in the process.

My mum put me on a diet because I was about 20 pounds overweight. I have lost five pounds in two weeks already. She has been trawling the supermarket for my favourite foods but in low calorie form. I have cut out chocolate, sweets, bread and potatoes. I have smaller portions but I am eating more fruit and drinking more water. My mum is writing down what I am eating every day and putting in the calories. It comes to about 950 calories a day. I am eating slimming soup which is 50 calories but delicious and filling. In the past week I have eaten sweet & sour chicken, pasta and pizza but all low calorie and smaller portions. My advice is: be aware of how many calories everything is. If you don't realise how high in fat a certain food is then you will carry on eating it and not lose any weight. Also, fill up on fruit but not too many bananas because they are fattening. If you have until the summer then you have plenty of time and can do it slowly and sensibly. Also, I exercise more. If you have a school nurse or even go to your GP and ask them how many calories someone of your height and age should be eating. Then write down roughly what you are eating and the difference is how many extra calories you are eating. Remember that losing weight should be a gradual process and the trick is not to get disheartened if one week there seems to be no difference in your weight. I now expect to lose about a pound a week or every two weeks and that is fine. As long as the scales are going down and not up then I am happy with that. Good luck.

Bulimia can get out of control so its great your getting help. Here are some great reasons why not to do it anymore:
The acid makes your teeth rot (gross)
You get bad skin and your hair becomes more thin
It dosn't matter what you look like, people will still think your great!!! If you do other stuff like seeing friends and having fun instead of worrying about your appearance you'll have so much fun!! Good luck!!
