This is my first post, so I'd really just like to start with my background. Last summer I was 5'3" and 145lbs and really uncomfortable with myself. I went on a very restrictive diet and overexercised, and at my worst I was down to 97lbs. Then I finally began to gain back, but soon my healthy gaining turned into bingeing. Within a month I was up to about 125lbs. I had a vicious bingeing cycle that really HURT. Then somehow I was able to take a break and I kept my meals normal and weight constant for a while, but about 2 weeks ago my dad told me i was looking thinner and I've been bingeing again since. I asked my parents for help, but they don't seem to realize it's going on until it's over. I need help because I'm so scared what will happen if this goes on.
