In brief: Depends
I always tell my patients that worry about things you have control over. You don't have control over your weight loss if it is from vomiting so just do your best to avoid triggers that cause this.
I had a patient that lost 35 lbs and then when the vomiting stopped, she gained that back and another 50 lbs and had a healthy baby. I hope this helps you in some small way!

In brief: Never.
Bulemia is never an appropriate way to lose weight, particularly during pregnacy!
