Your Bulimia Recovery Blog
Your Bulimia Recovery Blog
Hi there and welcome to your Bulimia Recovery Blog. I say ‘yours’ because I’ve created this blog with you in mind, someone who’s where I once was; struggling with bulimia and who now wants to be free or is at least curious to find out more.
And so, you’ll discover information to inspire and support your own recovery in the posts here on your Bulimia Recovery Blog. Information and insights either from my own personal experience and research or from mentoring and coaching others, along with any news and views from other experts in the field of eating disorders and beyond.
I truly believe in THE POWER OF A NEW PERSPECTIVE as a tool to cause change, so not all the posts will be directly related to bulimia or bulimia recovery. However I invite you to keep an open mind and be curious as they will indirectly relate and I share them with you to stimulate new understanding and insight and be a catalyst for your bulimia recovery. SO, PLEASE SCROLL DOWN & ENJOY.
If you'd like to have any of your questions answered or to read about specific topics or ideas on your bulimia recovery blog then please write to me at Julie@bulimiafree.com.

As a sufferer of bulimia I’m sure your self-esteem has nose-dived. In fact, your lack of confidence and negative body image could have been triggers that started your journey to bulimia in the first place. And you’ve probably read or believed that if you can build your confidence and self-esteem, somehow you’ll find the inner strength you need to move beyond your struggle with food.
