To put it coldly, you're under no obligation to do anything. She is your sister, not your child. Now, that being said if it were my sister I would want to do something.

Should I tell someone else and have them deal with it?

Probably your best bet. That's what I would do if I were in your situation based on what you wrote. There are people who are trained in how to deal with this and they are much better qualified at talking to people about that stuff than we probably are. I imagine if it's anything like a family member with an addiction problem, ultimately they are going to have to choose for themselves that they want to quit and at a certain point if they get bad enough any help try to give them will just enable them to do more harm.

I heard on a talk radio show an interview with an addiction counselor for family members of addicts and she talked about the 3 C's. They are, you didn't Cause the problem, you can't Control the person with the problem, and you can't Cure the problem. I thought it was good advice.

This is pretty good advice. Bulimia is a disorder and shares traits with addicts so getting her some outside help is the best bet. I will tell you that just like addicts, no one can make her stop doing this unless she wants to do it. The key is to get her the help to see that she is really hurting herself and making her want to quit, not you or anyone else forcing her to quit. That rarely works. There are two videos that you should watch, both short but will apply in some way to your situation. Here is the first. And here is the second. Good luck.

Yes and no. If you don't care enough to help her, you don't have an obligation. However if you do want to help her, then you have an obligation. Not to her, but to yourself. Stand up for yourself and do what you think is right, even if it may piss her off. If she refuses to accept it, that's her problem. But stand up for your morals.

It's doable, she just needs to eat less calories instead of purging. Throwing up can't be good for the digestive tract even if the teeth are minimally affected. Show her a website she can go to in order to plan out meals with nutrition built in with the calorie deficit she needs to reach the weight. It was never your problem to begin with but if you do this you don't have any reason to feel guilty if she deteriorates.

Oh, and exercise for 'health' and all that.

I recommend reading "The Dorito Effect" by Mark Schatzker. It explains that cravings are a natural response to nutrient deficiencies; and how natural and artificial flavorings fuck that system up. In dealing with her psychologically: if she's willing to talk to you about it than there is hope. Ask her a bunch of why questions:"Why do you do it?" "Why do you feel that way?"...etc Make sure to repeat back to her what she is saying in your own words so she knows you're listening.

Honestly, you're probably the "cause" you skinny bitch. At least in some convoluted psychological way. It's not actually your fault. At all.

It's not your problem. If you say something to her it's likely to explode. If you go behind her back, it's likely to explode worse. Don't go behind her back to get her help.

Personally, I'd consider ridiculing her to her face. It's mean, but it's honorable. Don't slip down the emotional slopes. Shes puking out dinner to lose weight. She should stop doing that.
