15 Lb's?: The small amount of extra weight likely poses very little health risk, especially in comparison to bulimia. Find a healthy life long means of controlling weight!

Healthy weight loss: If needed, there are much healthier ways to lose weight than reverting to anorexia or bulimia. Please see your physician and/or therapist before you relapse. You need to help yourself stay healthy. Good luck to you.
