A positive frame of mind is very important for treatment, and you appear to have it. If you have the will, you'll find the way. Join support groups to keep yourself motivated, especially since you do not want to be hospitalized. You can find these support groups online and also in your area. Take up yoga for that will help you. Join any good center in your area. Apart from this, you need proper treatment without which success is not possible. The treatment involves various types of behavior therapies, nutritional guidance, medications, and exercise and yoga. Please consult a good psychologist/psychiatrist who specializes in eating disorders. Take care!
