When the women in the bulimia recovery program cancel their accounts they have the option to answer a few simple questions. Here's what some of them have to say...

I didn't have any concerns about the program, I was willing to try anything to get better. If I had to name a concern, it would be that I had wasted every last dollar (literally) on food for bingeing, so the monthly fees - although minimal, caused a little concern, given the amount of debt I was already in!
Other people to confide in, and I wasn't alone. I felt empathy and sadness toward the other girls, which made me realise, I'm in the same boat, why shouldn't I also feel this for myself?
The Bulimia Recovery Guide was my bible!! Still to this day, when I'm having a "negative body image" day I remind myself of a comment or quote in the BRG and it gets me through :) Also, Shaye's weekly emails - it was like she could read my mind some days, I'd be having trouble with something and next thing, an email pops up addressing the exact issue!
Shaye's honest, easy to read, relate-able Bulimia Recovery Guide, the emails and support.
Yes - to read the Bulimia Recovery Guide!
Just recently I emailed my friend and said "Funny (well, not really) how many psychologists, doctors, dieticians, support groups, hospitals, and even a hypnotist, I went to over the years that couldn’t help me – and all it took in the end was a simple site like this, and a supportive partner! I guess everyone is different though..."

I was initially worried about feeling exposed. Bulimia is such a secretive problem and joining a group was scary.
I discovered I wasn't alone.
The community board that displays all the newest posts from members is a wonderful place to go for immediate support and love. It's so easy to access and there are always other members around, and everyone is so willing to help.
Shaye's tools like the recovery guide, emails and videos. They gave me different things to think about all the time. Every time I watched a video or read a blog post, I felt more positive, stronger, and more convinced that I could achieve recovery. I felt happier too!
I would absolutely recommend this program. You get lots of support and tools, and you get to be open and share, but you never feel embarrassed or ashamed. Everyone is so accepting and kind. It's just a wonderful community. Joining the program was the best thing I did to help my recovery.
Thank you.Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Honestly, when I was first thinking about joining, I was afraid that it might be some kind of scam. But once I decided that the program was legit, I didn't have any concerns. I just wanted to get better! I had, had success quitting smoking with a forum, so hoped this would work for my bulimia.
I found the program very helpful on many levels. There are always difficulties with online communities of recovery--some posts can be triggering, some people rub you the wrong way, etc. But I was able to connect with several of the members and I enjoyed helping them and was grateful when they were able to help me. I will miss the girls I communicated with very much!
The book with Shay's personal experience may have been the most helpful thing. To understand the direct connection between dieting and bulimia was invaluable. It also helped illustrate the control-release cycle so many of us fall into and carry out unconsciously.
the community forum and support, the information on structured eating, and the different types of posts one was able to make (eg: status vs. blog)
Absolutely. Because it was instrumental in my ability to recover. Period.

My main concern when joining was that I was beginning to relapse and I wanted to NIP it right away before I spiraled out of control.
As a result of joining the group I saw I was NOT alone; especially someone my age. I found that by supporting others I was healing myself. I also read about people who I knew I never wanted to be again.
The guide was the most helpful guide I had ever read.... and beleive me I read a lot of books.
reading others posts, receiving feed back and forming a few special bonds.
I would and have recommended this program; I found it helpful for myself.

My main concern was if i could really recover from the b/p. This program was my last chance and it's proved the right one!
I found my self, the self kindness, the beauty of life and my smile back!
The emails from Shaya! At the beginning i was looking for her emails and i was very happy with her inspirations articles!
-The community and the forums. At the beginning, it helped me a lot because at any any time i knew that were somebody there for me, to listen my worries and my thoughts. -The inspirational articles/videos that teach me the steps to recover from bulimia -The self love that this program teach you! It's fantastic how easy it seems at the end!
Definitely! I already did! I believe that it's OK to say "I am not OK" and ask for help! This program gave me the chance - the chance that i have denied to myself in every slip- to learn how to respect, to love and listen to my body! Now i see that food it's not the enemy but it;s a a source of vitamins and it allows to me to run, to laugh, to sleep, to read etc!
I would like a big THANK you to all Team program! You believe to ourselves and give to us the time to recover! God bless you!

I was cincerned about privacy
That others have the same problem, that I am not alone! It was beyond helpful and empowering to hear other people's stories and know there is a strong community behind you.
The community and Shaye's regular messages. I felt committed.
It taught me to accept and like myself, to change my thinking, to realize that I am not a "monster," and to change my habits. It gave me real, practical tips on how to do it and I never thought I could but I did! And I could never have done it without this site!!
I would recommend it a million times over for the reasons above.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart :-)

My main concern about joining the bulimia recovery program was actually admitting I had a problem and taking control of my life. It is very difficult to recover from bulimia because quite often bulimia becomes, what feels like, a part of you. So joining the program was difficult, because it ultimately means letting go of something that was protecting you from reality.
Joining the bulimia recovery program resulted in me taking control of my life and bulimia. I am happy to say I have recovered. I now know my strengths and my weaknesses, and the steps I need to take to ensure that I remain healthy and happy.
What was great about the bulimia recovery program was that it was anonymous. Unfortunately in society bulimia is stigmatised, and this makes it very difficult to seek the help that is greatly needed. After attempting to seek help from a doctor, and being dismissed as simply "needing to eat healthier", my courage had disappeared and I felt I could no longer speak about it. The recovery program allowed the platform for anonymous dialogue and the ability to speak openly without having our fears and issues dismissed.
Three benefit of joining the bulimia recovery program are:- Everyone in the program understands you. This is essential is being able to help each other along the recovery route.- It is continuously accessible. If you are feeling low or vulnerable you can immediately access the program for help. The tools needed for recovery are at your fingertips.- The program is a community. You are not alone on the journey to recovery.
I would absolutely recommend the bulimia recovery program. The program is concise and accessible, and created by someone who knows the ins and outs of bulimia. This is a great way to recover, or simply a great way to take that first step into healing. If you are considering this program, join now. I saw the program but put it off for months and months, making excuses why I should not join it. My biggest regret is that I did not do it earlier.
The gratitude I feel for this program cannot be fully expressed. I look back at my life when I was trapped in the cycles of bulimia and it is awful to see how lost I was. I am healthier, happier and no longer ruled by bulimia. Shaye has created an incredible program that has helped me live.

My main concern was that people would think I wasn't sick enough and question why I was here.
I found this site so helpful and supportive, it really helped me learn to love myself and treat myself with kindness on a daily basis, this may be something I have to continue to reinforce on a regular basis but it is ingrained in my head now and I feel as though am now genuinely a more positive person.
I personally really liked the emails linking to articles about self care etc. and the comments on statuses/blog posts from other users
Having people there who understand and were totally non judgemental
I'd recommend this to everyone, being able to open up to others and not worrying about judgement was amazing and there is such an amazing focus on self love and self respect no matter where you are in recovery
Thank you so much for helping me with this period in my life

I loved the feed of women posting status updates and blogs. It kept me present to individual struggles and often mirrored my own situation.
I loved the b/p log! It helped me recognize patterns.
This program and community of women has been the single most influential piece of my recovery after 11 years of bulimia. I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn to love themselves and claim a life of joy and freedom.
Thank you SO much! I have never been happier or healthier :).

I was initially scared of wasting my money and if I'm honest, of recovering! My identity was wrapped up in bulimia.
Good advice, structure and support.
The community ♡
The structured eating plans, the meal planner and the binge tracker.
Yes, because it works!

People finding out on my computer/credit card bills.
Best decision I've made towards recovery. I am not the only one with this problem and I am definitely not as weird as I thought!
People's stories and support. Distractions tools also very helpful.
No pressure to recover. I did it on my on time! Access 24/7. Nutrition tools.
Absolutely!! It changed my life. It not only helped me to recover but it helped with my low self-esteem.
Shaye is amazing.

The support. My original plan was to join the site but not use the forums (I felt ashamed even amongst other bulimics!). But I actually felt much more comfortable using them than I had imagined, and I had completely underestimated how useful it would be. It was great to get support and advice from the other girls, and most importantly, writing my thoughts down, sending them out into the world and getting feedback helped me to stay much more positive about recovery.

That I would still be creature of habit and it would prove to me even spending money wouldn't motivate me.
Everyone has a slightly different journey but no matter what it is, we all are facing this together.
I really loved the forums and the posts stream! It's really interactive and you can see everyone's comments and advice to each other. It's a support system like no other!
Publically venting is very accepting. We all need all need to complain once in a while and sadness is apart of this journey. But no matter where you are mentally you have support. Nothing is off limits. We learn to compare numbers in a positive way. We talk about weight and give specifics which is really therapeutic.Shaye is online as well! She helps and guides everyone in the program which is very special. She has a huge company to run and the fact that she takes the time to read and listen is amazing!
YES! It saved my life. I refused to go to the doctors because during bulimia recovery I was also faced with some mystery illnesses. I used to be very obsessed with scales and numbers, to the point where I rather die than going to the doctors. The support community was incredible and they helped give that push to finally see a doctor! I am finally being treated for my condition and I am free of bulimia.
I feel some think that bulimia recovery is like using a cookie cutter! It's not at all, and everyone has their own journey to tell.

I was worried that this not would be different from any of the other many times I have tried to beat this.
I have now been bulimia free for 7 month.
I think initially the guide was the most helpfull feature for me. I learned stuff about my eating pattern, that I hadn`t understood before. And it was so much easier to stop bingeing and purging, when using this new knowledge.
The community was amazing, while working through the urges, using the tools from the guide. It is amazing to find people willing to listen, who TOTALLY gets where you are coming from. Also being accountable to others in a positive, loving and supportive way was helpfull. The selflove outlook changed the way I looked upon myself.
Yes. I have seen MANY different approaches to recovery, but this beats all of them. As simple as that.

I dealt with bulimia for over 12 years...
For the first time in my life, I found the key to bulimia recovery and for the first time I could help myself. Before I thought that there was just NO way out. Now I know that's a lie. And this, thanks to this program. I cannot say I'm 100% healthy, I still have an episode from time to time and I'm struggling a bit with bloating but now I have the control and I can hope that someday soon it will all belong to the past.
Shaye's precious help and the girls support in the community. Feeling I'm not alone.
100%. For me, it has all of the clues for beating off bulimia. I repeat, before I joined this program, I was convinced there was no way out. Now I am almost cured.
A big THANK YOU to Shaye from all my heart. Thank you for helping me to get healthy again and thank you for teaching me to love my body and myself. You are an amazing person. Keep on doing what you do and saving girls lives all over the world. Love you. Mary

My main concern was it would be yet another recovery program didn't work.
It was amazing! The community support is overwhelming. I'm not comfortable in group sessions so the on-line aspect of this program really suited me. I finally got to communicate with women going through the same thing as I am, finally people who get it!
The blogging/sharing that lead to really helpful discussion.
The supporting documents that explained structured eating, the ability to ask members questions in private via the email system, there was a choice to be anonymous or not. It is a really great price, help out there can be expensive so many people miss out. This program allows a diverse group to participate which also makes it so helpful, hearing stories from all age groups across the world.
Absolutely! After years of recovery attempts this is the only one that helped me through each stage of my recovery - it is so different for everyone and the forum allowed each individual to be honest about what was going on and to get support from a lot of wonderful people.
I'd like to thank Shaye for being brave enough to start this program. I know she is going through a rough pregnancy and didn't have much time to post. This program has given me a new life, I'm so happy I stumbled across it 6 months ago.

Whether or not the program would actually be effective, and give specific guidelines for behaviour and steps toward recovery.
I found a completely different way of approaching my disorder - learning a lot of new information about how and why it can develop in a person, what drives it, and what steps I could take towards starting my recovery gave me an entirely new hope, instead of being in the dark on my own.
The information behind the "primal hunger" trigger that comes from starvation, and how a consistent and balanced meal plan is the best way to address this issue. For the first time in over 4 years, I was able to not worry each day about what calories I would be consuming, desperately restricting myself during the day, only to binge at night. It gave me such a freedom and security knowing that I was nourishing my body and that eating consistently is actually a much more efficient method of being healthy! Fortunately, I didn't gain too much weight in the process... a few pounds, but the difference in my energy and clarity was 110% worth it. Also other information such as dealing with bloating and how that's a normal part of recovery gave me peace of mind, wearing loose fitting clothes was definitely the way to go!
Yes! Because despite already having been in an inpatient program when I was 15, I feel that now with a few more years under my belt, I was ready for recovery. I was ready to make sacrifices for myself, and for my health. This program is incredibly realistic, specific in its information and step by step goals, and focuses on the journey itself - slip ups and relapses included.

Sharing my story and opening up about the issue in hand.
It was a fantastic way to read others struggles and realise you're never alone in an ED battle. I didn't post a lot but I read daily and took in the comments provided by the other members and used them as a lot of the posts expressed the same feelings as I'd had.
The community, the opportunity to read others stories.
Yes, it's simple and effective. Inclusion and sharing are the best remedies for any issue and this gave me the power to do that.

If anybody could find out that I was in the program (for example, by receiving the emails each week).
That other girls are at the same situation like me, that I am not a bad person -just a lost person. That I do need to take care of myself: then is when I can do good for the others.
To be able to speak freely with people that do understand what is going on. To have people around willing to fight against the disease, and giving at the same time support to the others. The warm.
To have always tools available at your hand; to have always the guide to download; have the forum and the writings of other girls, encouraging, losing, crying and winning together.
Yes, always. Because you feel very bad throwing all the food away, and some people might not know that it is more than because of being fat: it is because u're not satisfied with something. It is a trip inside your self.

I was so afraid that someone I knew would be able to recognize me. After joining and reading and posting my feelings, I realized it did not matter. If someone I knew could recognize me from this site then they would be dealing with the same kind of feelings that I was dealing with.
The bulimia recovery site is a comforting place to come. This wonderful program, along with all of the wonderful women who come on this site, allow you to be who you are. There is no pretending here. We all have the same basic fears and demons to deal with.
Community and the Recovery guide.
Privacy, ability to talk freely, ability to talk with others who are going through the same thing.
Absolutely, Every part of this program is supportive. There is no negativity here. When someone is in need of help, we are all here for each other. GREAT SUPPORTIVE FRIENDS WHO DO NOT JUDGE.
Shaye, thank you for giving me the tools to over come a disease that I have hidden for 28 years of my life. Thank you for believing in yourself enough and having enough courage to build what was so needed so badly. I would still be struggling if I had not found your site!!!

Telling my own story.
That there were so many other people with my same problem!!
The manual. It put the whole issue into perspective and allowed me to learn about why I was like that.
Well, I feel in control now through knowledge.
Absolutely, it was the first step for me to identify why I felt the way I did.
What was really useful to me was instead of writing down my binges, which I did at the beginning in the tracker section, I started a note in my iPhone called BRP. Everyday I wrote the day down when I didnt purge and a dash when I did. eg. Monday Tuesday - - - Saturday - I did this for months. I didn't write down why I purged but it allowed me to think about when and why I did. I could also see patterns. If I saw too many dashes I would try to rectify it. It was a little game. After a while the urges reduced and then they stopped! After 3 1/2 years I am able to say I am not bulimic any more. I have a stable weight and I don't really think about calories or about burning energy, I just listen to my body now. Thanks from the bottom of my heart, Shaye.

I was worried the program may not work for me I was at my wits end ebulimia was controlling me I was so frightened I would be living with this for the rest of my life
I felt as though a weight had been lifted I felt I was no longer all alone there were others out there going through what I was going through.
Everything about the program is amazing but the community is a great feature being able to talk to someone who completely understands what your feeling, thinking & who can answer your questions is really helpful
Reading shayes story was very inspirational it made me feel like I too would beat bulimia I related to so much of what shaye wrote it was nice to know it wasn't just me having all these things going through my head. The meal guide was great as I hadn't eaten normally for 10 years due to dieting & cutting certain foods out ( which I would later binge on ) so it was so handy having it to help get myself back on track to nourish & he kind to my body. I used to look at myself in the mirror after binging & purging & tell myself how disgusting I was I hated myself This program made me look at myself & my eating disorder differently instead of hating & critisizing myself for what I was doing I began to forgive myself & start treating myself with kindness which I had forgotten how to do along time ago.
Yes most definately I had tried to beat bulimia for a number of years this is the only thing that help me overcome it I no longer felt alone.
Hi shaye, I just wanted to thank you so much for ur amazing program I have tried numerous times over the last 10 years to try & beat bulimia on my own with no luck. Coming across ur program online was the best thing I have done, knowing that all my thoughts & actions were the same as what you & many other people with bulimia had gone through or are going through made me realize I'm not crazy & I wasn't alone in this. The thought of bingeing or purging rarely enters my mind anymore if it does its for a split second & I'm able to push it right back out again. I'm eating normally again everything in moderation, no dieting enjoying food which I hadn't for a long time being kind to my body & loving myself. I have now been in recovery with no relapses for over 6 months I never thought I would be able to overcome this but I'm so happy & proud to say I'm finally free Thank you for everything I wish u all the luck & happiness in the world. Love Jessie

You gave truly helpful strategies for avoiding the binging/purging cycle
the recovery guidebook and the community support
I loved what you said about developing new neural pathways
Yes, because it was truly helpful, even more so than counseling I entered into to deal with my bulemia

Ive tried a number of counselors over 8 years and nothing else worked. I was desperate for something new.
I found people that understood me and gave me tips on recoverying, which worked better than any other counselor advice!
I liked the constant uplifting encouragemenr and love from the community. If you cant love yourself, they will love and life you up. In time, i started loving myself and lifting others up too!
Best 3 benefits: advice that can help kick bulimia fast, walking hand in hand with others experiencing the same struggles, and accessability.
Yes. Nothing else worked for me... Well.. I quit before but I fell back into bulimia. The community brings up so many questions and topics that I never thought of before. This time, im pretty sure that i will be free from bulimia for life...now that i processed recovery (instead of just quitting bulimia).
This place changed my life! Not just with bulima, but how i handle relationship, my job, and other areas of my life. Positive thinker now ;) Anything is possible!!

That it wouldn't work and I wouldn't stick with it.
Inspiration from other successful stories and a well of courage from the other members.
The encouraging statements from Shay and the other members.
When you feel like giving up it's an easy to go to resource. Connecting with people struggling with the same issue in so many different parts of the world really put things in perspective It was far more effective and affordable than other methods I had tried such as therapy.
Yes, It was the perfect resource for me. It allowed me to recover at my own pace with as much or as little help as I was ready for.
The meal plans were great, however, I would ask that you add a few more vegan/vegetarian meal plans. It was a great starting point, but it would have been great to have more than one meal plan to look at. Figuring out what and how much to eat was one of my greatest struggles in recovery and I believe a few more examples would have helped me greatly.

I did not have any concerns. I was very hopeful about your program.
That I had been being way too hard on myself prior to implementing your program in my life. The importance if lessening the 'all or nothing' thinking I had held for so long before finding your website.
I found the recovery guide totally changed my approach to eating, and helped really emphasize that I CANNOT DIET!! Diet and recovery cannot go hand in hand. That recovery is a process, and not finish line also very much helped.
The online posting and friend support was incredible! It was very therapeutic to write about concerns/issues and have others chime in. The accountability of these posts.
Of course, it's approach to bulimia recovery, developed by an actual recovered bulimic changed my life! I have never had a healthier relationship with food or my body. Is it perfect? Of course not, but I am so much happier and in a better place. I occasionally slip but it's so rare compared to the daily hell I once lived in...and it's so much easier to get right back up, and dust myself off...I've never been more gentle with myself.

I think it would help participants if you would add any work out program including the recovery program.
I've found a desire to recover.
support, sharing stories, but mostly support, understanding.
meeting new friends, building self confidence, start to be honest to yourself
definitely yes. There is no better program you can find if want recovered from bulimia.

That I was fundamentally messed up and past the point of recovering.
I found that others have and are going through every thought, emotion, and behavior I have had that I thought made me incapable of recovery.
I thought the bulimia recovery guide helped so much and was really relavent to everything I was going through.
Being able to talk in the forums, reading other girls' posts, and the constant positivity and encouragement.
Yes I would because even if you do not follow it exactly, it serves as a push to help you making small changes toward recovery.

The recovery program is giving me the chance that I was seeking to change my life and to free me of the bulimia. For the first time in my life I feel that I am not alone trying to surpass my bulimia. I have real knowledges about my illness and how to beat them. I feel supported, pleased and liberated, with less fears and insecurities of my image. Lucía
Support, Support, Support. I have had bulimia for over 10 years. I've tried to "snap out of it" and I've had periods where I didn't binge and purge, but at various points over the years it would come back. I finally have support for something, and that is the biggest area. I don't feel like I have to shut people out anymore. Zara B.
It changed my life. After ten long years of being bulimic I am now bulimia free for six months. All because of this bulimia recovery program. Dori
There is no better place to be for your recovery than this site Ivana
Personally I would choose her over any of the therapists I have seen over the years that I was willing to pay $25+ an hour for. You get the help from a person who has been there and done that, and you also get the opportunity to be social with a group of ladies who are right there with you. Two things I think are extremely important. Lizz S.
It's safe to say that the BRP is the long lasting beneficial support that encouraged me to smile at life again and to re-open my heart for the joy and beauty it offers to all of us! Karina
Thankfully this community blesses you with the right information and tools to get through the inevitable tough times and the joy of having people who are in the same situation and helping you as you go. I'm forever thankful for having the irreplaceable support to fight for what is best for me with all force and knowledge and much love! Shaye and other girls did it, I'm doing it and do can anyone struggling from this, no matter how deep and dark it seems! One step at a time, TOGETHER!Luanne
I was overwhelmed by all the love and support really. It's such a powerful program and the fact that you make it so personal and affordable is incredible. You are doing a beautiful thing Shaye. It makes me tear up just thinking about the love you are pouring out over this community.Heather R.
Being in recovery can be very stressful, when there is difficulty, you can come on here, post how you feel, or read the stories of other people that have gone through exactly the same thing and get tips & drive to push through. It also keeps you on track with recovery so you dont get overwhelmed or feel alone. There are others going through the same thing and feeling the same way Melody
The community has truly come to feel like a family, somewhere I can be open, honest and myself. For me it has taken the battle out of my head and instead to somewhere I can get advice or simply tell about my daily struggles and triumphs. And be understood! Shaye's guide and her support and advice on the site are invaluable tools in this recovery journey, for which I am truly grateful :-) Izzy
I'm 2 months into the program I really feel like it has already made a huge difference in my life. A whole new world unfolded before my eyes: There were people struggling with bulimia just as bad as I did. I didn't have to pretend I felt any better than I did. Feelings of shame? They were thrown out of the window, I could be myself here. I have stopped b/p for almost a month now, where as before I'd never go a day without. It's not just because I started to eat properly, but it has mostly been a change of attitude and way of thinking. I used to only think negatively about myself, my capacities and my body. Nothing I did was ever good enough. I had to go all the way, or shouldn't do anything at all. Myra
The Recovery Program has made some amazing changes in my life, that I would not have dreamed possible. I have a new-found knowledge on bulimia and have learned so much about myself, the disease and how to take my life back. The support and wisdom from my fellow recoverees is priceless. I’d just feel so alone prior to joining, so opening up to the people in your same shoes and listening to their precious stories and advice has given me this immense strength to recover. Debra
Being part of the Bulimia Recovery Program (BRP) has been an integral part of my own success; I am proud to say I am at almost a month free of bingeing and purging! One of the most important elements of this program is access to Shaye’s tremendously helpful guide for bulimia recovery, in which she uses her own experiences and that of others to literally guide you through many aspects of the recovery process (such as learning structured eating—so important!). Seeing so many other wonderful people break their b/p cycles and engage in structured eating helped me to see that I could do it, too. Elysha
I know that while making the choice to recover was crucial, and having the will comes in handy, but it is the girls in this program and their support that has helped me make it this far. I have been in recovery without purging for two months. I know I still have a long way to go, but I could not imagine doing it on my own. Even in this short amount of time, I can see myself emerging and the world is opening up before me. I have started making plans to do the things I’ve wanted to do for years, but that got lost in my bulimia cycle. Just taking that first step in recovery, has made me see what is really important. Elle
Today I have no problem, I even had an emotional time over the weekend where I did eat a little too much but it didnt affect me at all. I did not binge eat or get worried I just let the food digest, had a good rest and was back to myself the next day, just what normal people experience. Sarah
