How Do You Set Goals To Recover From Bulimia?
In order to beat bulimia, it is important to change behaviors, attitudes and thoughts surrounding food, self-worth, self-image and life in general. To properly recover from bulimia, the person battling this eating disorder needs to set goals and prepare for a process that could take months or years to complete for full recovery. With the help of family, friends, a support group and possibly professional help, a new healthy lifestyle can be developed one day at a time. Start by creating a diary of everything you eat, the feelings you have when you eat each type of food, when and where you eat and how much you eat. You can create a chart in your diary with each day listed and categories for when, where, types of food and feelings to be filled in for the day. Create a place in your diary to write when, where and what you purge along with the feelings you have or situations you experienced to cause you to purge. Keep track of your eating experiences and bulimia in the diary for 1 to 2 week
