…is something that I don’t suffer from. In my earlier years and limited knowledge, I have learned that bulimia is an eating disorder in which one takes in too much food then sticks a finger down her throat to induce puking.
I found out that some people at work were doing this. When I learned that throwing up your food makes you thinner, I tried it out myself. Much to my disappointment and luck, this thing is not for me. Not only was I unsuccessful in recalling the food from my digestive tract, I have been convinced that it was such an unhygienic way (major ew!) of losing weight. It makes me squirm just to think of my finger near my throat again.
Thankfully, I have been enjoying the food that I want and keep it in my tummy (and they show their presence on my waist line and thighs). And I would like to keep on enjoying more of it.
I thought bulimia is one “fad” that I would easily jump right into. But then again, I have never been the girl to join the crowd, do what they do, talk the way they talk, be “in.” Sure, with movies, I do. But in interests (books, music, job), I have managed to keep it real to myself. I stick to what makes me happy.
Thankfully, it has been my habit to not shove down my throat the stuff that I don’t want – books, music, job. I know just how much I can take in. I don’t stick with it when I don’t enjoy it. This way, I would not force myself into taking in anything that I know, I will just be throwing up and out.
