Thought I'd give a quick update.  I started my Topomax 3 days ago.  Its FDA approved as an anti-convulsant for epileptics but it can also be used for migraines and for people with BED cuz its a crazy appetite suppressant.  I was reading up on it before hand and it has some pretty severe side effects i.e. bad memory, head fog, numb limbs, kidney stones...you know all the fun stuff.  I have to say so far I like it a lot. My memory is pretty good I think? and my appetite is low to normal which is absolutely and utterly insane for me since I think I've binged every meal of my life since I was 10.  I'm gonna compare it to adderall except I feel basically normal and not cracked out.
Yesterday I had a can of tuna with some lite mayo, a banana, some grapes, 2 bowls of multigrain cheerios with lite vanilla soy milk, a pickle and a lite string cheese.  I also speed walked 5 miles.  Thats perfectly healthy if not too little food.  Normally I can consume 6 PBJ sandwiches and a gallon of ice cream and not blink twice....and not even purge.  All I keep thinking is how thin I'll be if I keep this up.  Even when I was purging hardcore 7x a day, I was still digesting more food (as in I kept whole meals down) than I'm consuming now plus whatever extra calories escaped my purges. (I know its only been 3 days but lets hope I continue eating healthy)

This is not a good mindset to have...I'm setting myself up for failure somehow....
