I just ate 48 pop tarts and whole bunch of other junk food.

I just ate a whole bunch of pop tarts and other junk foods. I purged as I was eating all this food. There are times when I don't purge for a day or two, but then go back with binging and purging. I used to purge about 5 - 10 times per day, everyday. This became 2 -3 times per day, every other day. I have a long way to go, but I hope I'm getting somewhere. There was a streak where I didn't purge for 4 days straight, which was a miracle for someone who has been purging every single day. I think that is when I started to purge less.
I have a major bulimia issue, but currently, I am trying to reflect on myself and go to the gym few times a week. I just checked up on the risks and the long term risks of bulimia, and that actually helped me consider about my disorder. I don't know if that is enough for me to stop purging from tomorrow, but what I feel now is that I want to keep the risks in mind, and to understand that what I am doing now can affect me from 7 years from now.

Hi! That is great progress and you should be happy with yourself for it! What helped me a lot in ditching bulimia forever was getting comfortable with the basic root cause of it: getting fat. Bulimia happens when you think you can never accept the idea of gaining a bit of weight. But once you face this fear and this possibility and tell yourself that "yes, if I stop purging, I may gain some weight initially but in long term, it will actually bring my weight down and I can be as successful and energetic as I want" and slowly, your desire to purge becomes less by itself (no forcing required thus) and with that, comes a sense of satiety that significantly reduces your urge to binge. It is a very scary move, but I think it is completely necessary. So face you Hydra! Think of this challenge as something fun and when you finally face your fear, you are a true hero!
