don't fret! indulging in a favorite food is okay. don't worry. you're bloating will go down. Try some water infused with cucumbers before you go to sleep and it will decrease the bloating.

hope this helps xx
PM anytime

Okay okay first of all calm down and take a deep breath. Chicken is good for you. Your body needs food please don't make yourself reject that nourishment. Now tums or any antiacid can help with the bloating and make your tummy feel more comfortable. You don't need to self harm over this... you don't need to self harm over anything. Have you tried any healthy alternatives? How about doing something creative, taking a walk, taking a nice warm bath, or making a soothing cup of tea? Or you could just think happy thoughts. How about you tell me about your favorite memory.

As long as we can dream, there will be unicorns.

Hi Nat,

Try not to worry, i think you can do it! You seem very strong to me. Remember that your body needs food to run (a bit like an engine needs fuel). If you deprive yourself then it will cease to function, so eating is quite essential! You might want to check out this and this. They will help you when you have the urge to self harm.

I hope this helps

Hey, Nat as the others have said, keep in mind that your body NEEDS the nutrition you're getting to keep going. Indulging once in a while is perfectly healthy and won't make your body permanently bloated. For most people, that slight condition will only last for a day or so or maybe less if you take some of the before-mentioned medicines. Yeah, it can suck to feel like you ate too much but it's not like you do this every night so don't SH over this; you did NOTHING WRONG. If you're really worried about the way your eating habits affect you, try eating healthier and moderate portions (although you don't sound like you overeat in the first place) to avoid bloating most of the time. I'm a personal advocate of the Alternatives sticky, whether or not the methods work for you. Just taking the (LONG) time to read through it can help talk you down from hurting yourself. Put time into making your own distraction if you need to. Please, take care of yourself <3 and PM me if you want to talk!

When you say "never", I'll say "lie"
When you say "always", I'll say "true"
When you say "love", I'll say "you"
I'll say "you"

It gets better.

i agree. feeling bloated isn't very pleasant, i'll admit, but it soon goes. at least what you ate was healthy anyway, not sugary.

It can look out of place after you have eaten but it dose go away it isnt a perminate thing and many things can help you.
If you always have a urge to be sick then think of what thats doing to your body rather then keeping good and healthy food down you.
You could always make your portions smaller and see if that helps the bloating?
Pileing food into you isnt always the best thing to do.

As for Sh related to this,you need to tackle one thing at a time.Shing wont stop your urge to purge and you dont want to Sh instead of purgin either.

Try and drink sopme water to flush your system faster.Going for a walk or a jog can help speed up your metabolism and the bloating /fat feeling will fade and you wont have to fear about weight.
