I’m relapsing pretty bad right now. I’ve lost 24 lbs in a month. I purge like 3-5 times a day, but only really binge like 1-3 times a week

Hahah I am losing more when I b/p than when I restrict.
Except the fact that I shouldn’t lose more bc it’s getting out of hand

I b/p everyday for 4 years (minus a few short months I was trying to stop). Usually I lose weight really fast with restricting, and then I maintain the new weight by b/p-ing. I have not lost a significant amount of weight only via b/p.

When I'm efficient, I lose when I b/p. Usually I dont eat outside of b/p and lose 1-2lb a week. I got to my lowest adult weight b/ping everyday.


I'm trying to maintain at the moment though, so I b/p everyday but still but am not as efficient with purging and weirdly I'm pretty good at judging and seem to be maintaining (I realise I could stop b/p and just eat maintenance but clearly I'm fucked up)

Not everyone will lose weight with b/p. We're kinda just gambling with this lol. Will I lose weight this time? Maintain? Gain? It's up to my hellhole of a stomach and disappearing gag reflex!

Bulimia always made me gain weight because purging gave me permission to binge.

Bulimia itself doesn’t determine weight gain, maintenance nor loss. ONLY thing that affects your weight is how many calories YOUR body is KEEPING each day vs how many you’re burning each day. Everyone absorbs/“keeps” differently, everyone purges differently, everyone burns differently, etc.
At then end of the day, “having bulimia” doesn’t determine weight gain, loss or maintenance... its cal in vs cal out.
Your weight is all a game of personalized factors and calculations... that’s all anyone’s weight is :/

Restriction never worked for me. It's actually how I became bulimic. I've lost 25kg from b/P, although not worth it
I've lost my health, my life etc

11 years.... I pretty much gain and lose the same 2kg.
The only time I've lost is when I was fasting a lot, and funnily enough when I was in recovery/recovered.

Bulimia got me to my LW BMI 14.7

I call it faux fasting
Don’t eat outside of b/p-omg.
B/P all day long until you fall asleep out is sheer exhaustion
And voila

I’m at my post-inpatient weight now, but before that I was 73lbs. Took me about a year to get there from 130, just b/ping no restricting.

I've definitely lost weight b/ping, the only differences are my face stays swollen while my body changes and my teeth are fucked

So, I been trying to read how long it usually takes people to lose weight with bulimia and most sites say you simply cant. you will either gain or maintain.
I know this isn't solidly true since I have lost over 100lbs with mainly just purging.

so.. out of curiosity..
how long have you had your bulimia, and how much weight have you lost??


7-8 years. I've lost as much as 50 pounds but I gained it all back a few years ago. 25 pounds down now in a month. Lose much faster than if I just ate super low cal, which is depressing.

I managed to lose on 15000 kcal daily but only like 5 lbs over 6 months, purged everything. Probably lost a lot of muscle , would not recommend. Worst diet I ever did.

I don’t know if I have bulimia or not but I purge through fasting or eating less after a binge and this just makes me lose and gain the same 2-4 pounds over and over so I guess you could say I’m maintaining.
