I've been bulimic and anorexic for a few year, and bulimia definitaly makes me fatter. But i've stopped purging a few months ago because to me bulimia is alot worse than ana on the "short term". I used to purge nearly everyday, and at one point, I could choke, have my heart rate double, I didn't really care. But I gave a thought to what purging does to your organs and teeth on the long term. You literally rote from the inside.
I still binge sometimes, and it's hard af not to get it all out, but i know my body's glad. So I think it's really good that you're looking for another option. You should try putting yourself a minimum kcals a day, let's say 800. This way, you'll lose the weight, and you won't have as much cravings for binges, since you have smth on your stomach.

I've been binging and purging every day and I'm the same as you, I'm stuck between 110lbs-112lbs. I've lost quite a bit because of bulimia, but I also restrict outside of b/p. I think maybe the binges are catching up and water weight. That's what I'm thinking.

Actually, why would you want to even go below 110? You will lose all of your muscle mass and that will shut off your metabolism. Besides, if you want to keep losing weight for some reason, it sounds like you want to be ana and that's heavy long term restricting (although anas can be mias too, of course).
But to answer your question- I lose a lot of weight b/ping but I am sure to eat small healthy meals outside of bping to keep my metabolism going. That's just me, everybody is different though.

I've lost, gained and maintained whilst being bulimic. For the most part I tend to lose weight though. I recently hit my lowest weight, well actually I surpassed it by quite a bit, all while b/p-ing on thousands upon thousands of calories every day.
...I feel like death though, so there's that.

no... no it won't. if that's true, how am i still losing steadily below 110 pounds? i swear to god every metabolism myth out there is dumb and exaggerated, like... do some research.

I have lost weight for sure - over 20kgs actually (this time around - first bad relapse). I cannot stop purging until it's all out and I'm totally done otherwise I feel full disgusting and I start panicking. That leads me to make sure there's nothing left to guarantee I'm losing.

I'll be alright one day. Some day. Just not today.YOU broke me. Just for once, I want to be somebodies first choice.
Strength is nothing more than how well you hide the pain.

Generally you look at total input, effectiveness at purging, to gauge. CICO really.
Posted 06 January 2017 - 10:43 AM
At first I maintained because I would only purge part of a binge. Then I gained because I was eating quite a bit outside of binges. Now, I'm alternating between losing and maintaining (maintaining because I've refused to drink water).

So yeah I lost weight but 2/10 would not recommend. Honestly depending on how tall you are 110 is probably already pretty thin.

I think it's different for every person tbh. Like, some people truly purge everything and lose, others some, others go in cycles... That's probably why there's no weight required for the diagnosis of BN. It has to do more with the behavior than with the "results" of said behavior.
If I am wrong, please nobody take offense.
Op, purging in any way does cause massive water retention. So maybe you're actually losing weight, but it just doesn't show on the scale because your body is likely to retain any fluid that it gets. Also, the lower your BMI, the lower your TDEE. Which sucks big time regarding weight loss. But it is true; that's why it's harder to lose the thinner you get.
