So, I've been struggling with bulimia without getting better for nearly 2 years. Well, on February 21st (First day of Lent), I decided I was going to give it up. So far, I've been eating really healthy and haven't purged in 16 days. And that's great, physically I feel great, my eyes don't hurt like they used to, I have more energy, I'm not feeling guilty or lying about it, I mean that part has been great! However, now, I'm gaining some weight, and I know I don't look bad. It's only a few pounds, but I'm sure you all know how a few pounds can seem astronomical with this disease. Anyway, I really, really, really want to continue to get better, so I was wondering if working out (cardio) for like 2-3 times a week for 20-30 minutes would be a good idea. I know that's what health experts say everyone should get, but obviously, I'm not everyone. Has someone else tried this, stopped purging, gained weight, and stayed healthy by working out? I'm just worried that I'll get obsessed with working out, and then I won't be in any better position than before (I'll only have better looking teeth). I don't know, just a thought...any opinions/suggestions?
