Christinam I understand your concern. I was bulimic and definitely did need to recover, but I wasn’t underweight. I followed the advice on youreatopia and gained quite a bit of weight- which made me uncomfortable and more depressed. I was the biggest I’ve ever been. I had my son four months ago and I’m slimmer now than I was before I got pregnant. I eat what I want but try to make ‘healthy’ choices (ie we don’t buy chips, candy, cheap junk food, etc). I also cook almost all of our food. I’ve had much more luck with this than eating for heat or youreatopia’s guidelines. I rarely feel cold, and I’ve started taking my baby for 2 mile walks to get outside and get some exercise. I really have to be careful that I don’t fall back into ED behaviors because of my history, but I recognize the signs and won’t go down that road again.
As far as youreatopia results, I only know one woman who supposedly tapered (there were no pictures). I stopped visiting the site because I’m recovered and I don’t agree with some of Gwyn’s posts. Anyways, I hope you figure things out. I was at the same point as you a year ago, being at an uncomfortable weight sucks and most of the ‘alternative’ health advice did nothing for me.
