My significant other is (undiagnosed) bulimic she purges up to 7 times a day and says she will stop when she gets to where she wants to get. I don't really believe that and she already wants to lose so much... She doesn't think she has any problem I just don't know what to do everything I say doesn't help or makes everything worse I've done so much research... I use I statements... I try to focus on how it affects me and how I see it I never get mad.. I just don't know what else to do.... I just want her to take the first step in understanding that it's hurting her....

WELCOME to the Forum. It must be very hard to watch her doing this to herself. She may not believe she is hurting herself until her throat is damaged. I'm sorry you are going through this. It would be so helpful if she would go to a therapist. Is there any way you could put your foot down, threaten to leave, force her to get help ??
