In brief: Bulimia

When you vomit after eating you deprive your body of nutrients.
The acid from your vomit is harmful to your esophagus and teeth. When your body is deprived of nutrients it gets the nutrients from other parts of your body, affecting your muscles, your heart, your bones, kidneys, etc.

In brief: No

That is not healthy and can lead to health problems such as esophagitis, tooth decay, and malnutrition.
That is not the way to lose weight. You should see your doctor to discuss this and find specific ways for you to lose weight in a healthy manner.
