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?

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
