I am in complete agreement with Peacesoul on this as I was just reading up on this very disorder yesterday.
Here is the link to the site I was using:
You have my support but please start to work on getting well and work with the CBT online I posted to you if you cannot get to therapist in person.

Great post, super...................I am very proud of you. You may go at your own pace and I know your fear. I have a weight problem and the meds I am on have caused weight gain which I can no longer deal with so I am with you on setting goals to eat healthy and quit blaming it all on the med. I am like you and fear that I will not have the will power but I have lost weight before and done it the right way by eating healthy so I will do it again.
So this is where I do the Nike thing................Just Do It.
I know you will make it with all of the support you receive here and know we support you.
I'm so proud of you honey
I know how hard it is to fight an eating disorder, but you can do it with baby steps. Three meals a day, no excuses..even if they are small meals, your tummy is probably shrunken from not eating much, so you probably feel like you have eaten more than you have. I got over my anorexia by eating cocoa pops three times a day (not healthy at all!!!) but it got me back on track, used to having food in stomach and in to recovery.
I also gave up coffee, I went from three huge mugs a day to none. It has made such a difference to me..and I actually sleep now. Imagine! Keep up the amazing job honey.
I am so glad you talk to your Momma and that you enjoyed the time out with her. Doesn't it feel good to sit down with someone you are close to and be able to tell them how you really feel.
Good job on your fine start on cutting back on the caffeine. You are off on your journey to kicking the caffeine.
Keep it up as you are doing great and your in a good mindset now. Look at all the wonderful support you are receiving here.
