Yes.
Bulimia is when a person binge eats and then induces vomitting as a method of losing weight.
If you need to talk, PM me.

Hey Becca,

Well there's no straight answer to your question. Bulimia is so much more than binging and purging, although yes that is a part of it. Bulimia is also about the mentality behind the actions, and is often used as a form of control. The only person who can diagnose you with an eating disorder would be a doctor, so if you are concerned, I'd suggest talking to your doctor.

Does anyone know that you binge and purge? If not, talking to someone can help. Telling a parent, family friend, counselor, etc, can be helpful, and you don't have to go through this alone. Just hang in there Becca.


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

"I am not what has happened to me.I am what I have chosen to become."- Carl Jung

"If ye harm none, do as ye wish."

Sometimes things just happen.


Smile through the tears.

Hi Becca,
Bulimia, in physical terms, is when you eat a large amount and then purge because you feel guilty, or because purging prevents you from feeling bad about it. But like Casey said, there are emotional reasons behind bulimia, too. The first step to recovery is to figure out what those are, and to find a way of dealing with them without harming yourself.
Take care, Becca, and feel free to message me if you need to talk. <3

Hey, I agree with the above posts. Binging and Purging is pretty much what Bulimia LOOKS like, and it is one of the main reasons to diagnose someone, if they eat large amounts off food and then purge it by either starving themselves, over exercise...or of course self-induced vomiting. Bulimia however is a mental illness and there is much more to it. I mean its highly unlikely that you will get someone binging and purging who just does it for the fun of it, there are all the emotions and pain that is behind why a person chooses to be bulimic. Because you are showing signs of bulimia, you should go and talk to someone, and get help before maybe you get even worse, its much easier to recover if its caught earlier.

Yeah.. Theres plenty of emotional reasons behind mine, I was just wondering if that was bulimia. Someone had told me it was anorexia.
