1


Did not throw up
Ate like the person I want to be
Defied temptation

Instead of binging and purging after work, tonight I moved a fridge, tidied my lounge room, went for a drive, prepared my lunch for tomorrow, washed my face and am going to bed early. I'm evening soaking my little portion of oats and chia and quinoa ready for breakfast in the morning.

It is so easy to forget the main reason why I need to beat bulimia.

It is not because it is making me fat
It is not because it is rotting my teeth
It is not because it crushes my self esteem
It is not because it makes me feel weak and sad

It is because it deprives me of all of the rest of my life. Just one day without it has shown me how much more I can accomplish.
