Hey, everyone. I'm also a first time poster! I've been struggling with self-diagnosed eating disorders for about 3 years (anorexic and bulimic tendencies), and I've recently made the tough decision to make my health a priority. It's going to be a hard road, but I think I'm finally ready. I was just wondering if any of you wonderful people knew the first steps I should take... I'm completely lost, I have no idea how I should start.

I know I want to start loving myself, that's very important to me -- more so than my weight (which is healthy, at this moment in time).
I also know I want to start eating healthy things, not purging, and not feeling terrible after. But I have no idea how to do this without gaining a substantial amount of weight... well to be honest, I'm even at a loss as to what "healthy" means anymore.

So I guess what I'm asking is if any of you wonderful people could point me in the direction of where I could find out what it means to love myself, and where I could better understand a balanced diet. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated -- as I said, I'm completely lost. I don't know the first steps to this whole thing called "recovery".
