3 Actions To Beat Your Bulimia Addiction

by by Shaye Boddington

((New Zealand) )

You CAN recover from bulimia.

You CAN experience the joys of eating for health and nourishment..

You CAN have it all!

How do I know this?

Because 5 years ago I spent hours each day with my head down the toilet… Desperately trying to throw up anything and everything that I’d eaten.

I’d binge and purge over 15 times a day…

My life was ruled by my dangerous bulimia addition.

And, I beat it.

I’d had bulimia since I was 8 years old… and at the age of 20 I managed to kick it in the butt!


The 3 actions that lead to my recovery…


When I look back on my bulimia recovery journey, I can clearly see 3 actions that I know were essential in my healing. I honestly believe that if you follow this advice, you will walk down the road to health and happiness…

But, remember… The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.


ACTION 1: Share Your Secret!

Living in the secret hell of bulimia eats away at you. You feel isolated and alone. You feel as though nobody understands you…

Sometimes you want to scream at the top of your lungs to the whole word to let them know what you’re feeling… You just want to release…

And, that’s exactly what you should do.

I’m not saying that you should go outside right now and yell at the top of your lungs “I’m bulimic” to the first stranger you see… Not at all. I’m saying that you should carefully select people that you love and trust to talk to. You need to share your bulimia secret. You need to have somebody who will listen to your difficulties and triumphs. You need to be accountable to somebody other than yourself.

Have you ever heard the saying “A problem shared is a problem halved”? Well… this is SO true with bulimia.

I remember when I first talked about my illness to somebody, I left feeling lighter, happier and more hopeful than I had for years!

So, make the commitment to talking about your bulimia, openly and honestly to somebody you trust. This is an essential step in breaking the shame and silence you have felt for so long.


ACTION 2: The Phone Call…

I had shaking hands and a pounding heart when I picked up the phone to book an appointment with a counsellor.

What would she think of me!? Surely she would think I was a disgusting, wasteful freak? How could anybody else understand eating and throwing up over 15 times a day!? I didn’t think they could…

But, my therapist – Amanda – did not judge me. Not even once.

She listened, asked questions and gave suggestions. Together we worked through my bulimia – and, within a few months I’d gone from bingeing and purging 15 times a day to only once a day. Within 1 year I had completely 100% recovered.

I needed those weekly appointments to get advice, release frustrations and to be held accountable.

Going to therapy or counseling makes bulimia recovery so much easier…

So, cast your fears aside, pick up the phone and make the call today!


ACTION 3: Create A Smile List

This step sounds irrelevant to bulimia recovery… But, in fact, it is essential!

Can you imagine a happy person, full of joy and life, binging and purging multiple times a day? Being angry at their bodies and at the world in general?

No? I can’t imagine it either… Why?

Because happy people aren’t bulimic people. Simple.

So, in order to end your bulimia and prevent any relapses, you need to find out what makes you truly happy.

Start figuring it out right now… Get a pen and paper and write down all the things that make you smile…

Going for a walk with a friend, playing with your puppy, listening to your favorite music, swimming in the ocean, doing yoga, watching movies with friends, etc, etc

Once you’ve created your smile list, make sure that you do at least one of those things every single day.

Dedicate time each day to being happy… Then allow that happiness to flow into every second of your life.

Happiness is a habit – so keep practicing!


Create Goals To Achieve These 3 Actions…

Creating goals is a fantastic way of progressing in your bulimia recovery… BUT, and this is a very big but…

Did you know that the way that you word your goals is SO important. Majority of the time, we set goals that our brains can’t understand… Or, they register the opposite to what we’re actually saying.

I hope that you find these 3 actions and bulimia recovery goal-setting tips helpful. They worked for me… and, I’m confident that if you use them – they’ll work for you too.
