Why stop purging? - July 15th 2010, 01:58 PM

What are your reasons to not being purging?
Mine are
- A promise I made to my friends
- I'm worried about my health
- I want to break the binge-purge cycle
- It didn't make me feel relaxed anymore
- I can't stand the shame

Good for you, Esther. I'm so proud of you that you can make this list
Mine are:
- it hurts
- the memories are too painful
- i would disappoint my friends
- there are healthier way to lose weight
- my teeth would rot if i continued, and an actress can't have a bad smile
- i need to take a taste of my own medicine and learn to love myself
- i need to set an example for the younger people who look up to me
- i sound like a hypocrite if i chastise other people's EDs and then go and purge
- it's getting harder to hide
- i want to stop before my parents found out

so far i've gone 74 days

I'm proud of you for starting this list Esther, and your list Anna.

My reason is just that I don't need to purge anymore, I don't have to be perfect. I can be okay without being skinny.

She whispered to her own reflection "I will be strong."

-It doesn't help with weight loss
-Self respect
-I was tired of my throat always burning
-I was tired of feeling miserable
-Trying to convince myself I don't hate myself.
