Bulimia Recovery: Lawyer - England

  • bulimia recovery started when I stopped intermittent fasting and ate proper meals
  • liberating myself from this constant battle with food has improved every part of my life
  • my bulimia recovery has given me a much better relationship with food but more importantly with myself

I didn’t think my eating disorder had any bigger impact on my life apart from my dress size and weight – but it did. It had a huge impact on everything, including my mental health. I feel that even though this started as a weight loss and eating disorder healing journey, it has been much more. And I’ve loved every moment of it.

Bulimia recovery was my goal

Before reading Kelly’s book and working with Kelly 1:1, I was struggling with:

  • bulimia
  • not eating
  • bingeing
  • & purging

I was desperate to recover from bulimia

After doing some online searches Kelly’s website came up and I began reading her blog posts.

When I ordered Kelly’s book and signed up to work with Kelly 1:1, I was desperate to get better and feel better.

My bulimia was at an all-time low and I felt helpless, as if it would never go away.

Bulimia recovery breakthrough – over 200 days free of disordered eating!

I have stopped bingeing and purging and I now eat properly.

In fact, as of May 2021, it’s been over 200 days since the last time I binged or purged.

After disorderly eating for 28 years and always dieting and starving myself, it felt good to actually eat proper meals.
After years of intermittent fasting and bingeing I realised I can eat regular, proper big meals like everybody else.— Chetna, Lawyer
I used to always focus on a number on the scale which I don’t now. And I don’t worry about what I weigh now as long as I feel good.

After years of intermittent fasting and bingeing I realised I can eat regular, proper big meals without my clothes getting tight.

My life is so much simpler thanks to my bulimia recovery

It has been simple to just eat normally even though the mental gymnastics were more difficult to deal with at the outset.

I’m not sure if I have lost weight on the scales as I haven’t weighed myself but my clothes still fit me so if anything I haven’t got any bigger despite eating so much more food.

I’m not bingeing and I’m comfortable with overeating sometimes, which I now realise is normal on certain occasions.

Definitely not starving anymore! I eat when I’m hungry.

My bulimia recovery is so much more

I feel that even though this started as a weight loss and eating disorder healing journey, it has been much more.

My thinking about what I want from life has changed. I have set boundaries with people and work and I have learnt how to say no. I have also realised my own time is so precious and I won’t spend it doing things that I don’t enjoy (as much as possible).

I’ve reduced my work hours and committed to other things I want to do.

I didn’t realise that liberating myself from this constant battle with food would open up my mind to so much self realisation.

I'm simply a happier person. And I've been able to build better relationships because of this

This year has been a huge transition for me thanks to my bulimia recovery

I’ve always been healthy (when I wasn’t bingeing and purging) so now being healthy and keeping the food down has been amazing for my mental and physical health.

This year and last has been a huge transition period for me.

Now I have a much better relationship with food but more importantly with myself.

I never really liked myself but now I’m proud of everything I have achieved and will achieve. Battles with others can be hard but battles with yourself are the hardest!

I’ve loved every moment of my bulimia recovery journey

Kelly is one of the kindest people I have met in a long time.

She is funny, compassionate and completely authentic.

The fact that she had her own struggles and overcame them gave me hope to go on with my healing.

Whenever I needed reassurance or accountability I read Kelly’s book or one of Kelly’s blogs and it makes me feel better and it keeps me on track.

Kelly’s book is life changing

It’s so simply put and easy to read and digest! It has been life changing.

I still read it when I need to and it’s perfect to dip into if you need support in something.

Kelly’s book has been written with love and authenticity ❤️💜

My bulimia recovery has been amazing the whole way through

I put 100 percent into this journey because I wanted to get better. I feel we have a responsibility to put everything we can into something to get the best experience out of it.

I’d give Kelly’s book 5 stars out of 5!
Five Stars
