It does sound like you have an eating disorder. Worries about your weight are one thing, but when you engage in activites such as making yourself sick, it moves you away from being a "dieter" and more into disordered eating. I suspect you do want to stop being sick, but the thought of gaining weight if you did makes you feel scared. Preoccupation with your weight, to such a degree is another sign of having an eating disorder.

If you are based in the UK I would call the EDA www.eda.org.uk they will be able to give you confidential advice and help. Stopping vomiting does not mean you have to, or will gain weight. However, placing all your self-esteem on just your weight will make it very hard for you to deal with this on your own. See what the EDA say, or have a chat with your GP. Catching this while you aren't vomitting so often may mean you can get it sorted before it gets any worse.

Everyone is scared of gaining weight. No one wants to be fat. Also you do have an eating disorder........bulimia.
