Last year the College Administration slammed the dooi on the Matrix due to problems with drugs, alcohol, and sex there. The new Matrix features new brighter lights and re-furnished tables, chairs, and floors. The wall which separated the Matrix from the main student cafeteria was removed so that the two sections are now linked. Students said it was great to have the Matrix reopened, but Stacy Seakules and Melissa Gayta objected to the non-smoking policy. Another student, Jeff Large, said he enjoys the place but thinks there is too much light there. Ed Oliver, the Student Union coordina- tor, said that students who violate the non- smoking policy will pay a fine of $100 as stipulated by the State of Washington Clean Air Act. Disorder affects one-quarter of women by Kathy Maynard Advocate staff Bulimia is a disorder characterized by patterns of binge eating and self-induced vomiting. It is estimated that 25% of women experience what has been des- cribed as the latest dieting epidemic. Review "It's okay to be bulimic. Accepting it as a coping mechanism can be the first step in regaining control of one's relation- ship with food," said Begoun. In her book, Begoun introduces the concept of "bulimia as a buddy" which provides an alternative to resisting the binge-purge pattern. Begoun believes that bulimia is a way of dealing with feelings, and purging provides an emotional release. The "buddy system" suggests that accepting the disorder allows an outlet for the negative energy that perpetuates bulimia, so one can move on to dealing with the issues that trigger it. "Hating yourself and hating the bulimia, perpetuates it. What you resist, persists; it's a lot like sex. If you build up a passionate frenzy about not binging, and all your energy is focused on it, how can you do anything else?", Begoun said. The film suggests a preoccupation with being thin, and conditioning to repress emotions, leads some women into a cycle of binge-eating, followed by feelings of guilt, and purging, followed by feelings of "Out Of Control Eating: Bulimia", a film which documents a young woman's binge-purge episode, was shown at the College on May 8. Paula Begoun, a local writer who is conducting research for a new book, "Quantity Is More Important Than Quality, Or The Binge Theory Of Dieting", lead a discussion after the film. Binge-eating is also followed by. the consumption of laxatives to purge the system. The film reveals that binge-purge patterns can occur in combination with excessive dieting and excercise. ---WORDS ET CETERA *Fast and Accurate, WORD PROCESSING TERM PAPERS * REPORTS RESUMES/COVER LETTERS 7817 134th Ave. NE Redmond CALL 883-3299 self-hatred. "Being able to wear a bikini is an important value in our society," said BegourL Bulimics strive to conform to a stereo- typed image that only thin is attractive. Begoun advises women to own their beauty, rather than give personal power away by accepting someone eise's image of what women should be. Begoun refers requests for information about bulimia support groups, and treat- ment programs, to Cabrini Hospital at 621- 3700; Overeaters Anonymous at 364 -0240; and Care Unit at 789-9345.
