Life without Anorexia

My motto is
'Dont let the sadness of your past & the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present'

My life at the moment is completely different to how it once was. I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia and depression as well as struggling with self harm and overexercising. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
And since 2012 i have been declared healthy from my eating disorder.

I have been blogging for 7 years, and my whole journey is written in my posts. I now represent healthy and happiness. I want to show anyone struggling that it is possible to recover, no matter how hard it may seem.

I now blog about recovery, my life, veganism and positivity!

If you have any questions leave them in the comment section as i am much quicker at answering there, otherwise you can always send an email: lifewithoutanorexia@hotmail.com

Recovery



^^This is true... reocvery isnt just about the weight.. it is so much more. It is your self esteem, how you look at yourself, to start socialiazing, to start living.
  Its not just about the weight... you can be 2kg more, 2kg less... (OK, not less.. but it does happen, that people live healthy (not body wise healthy... but mentally healthy) with a lower BMI.... i am not supporting or encouargaing that.

  1. Very true.
    For me, the first step towards recovery was getting rid of the scales. I have never weighed myself since, when I go to the doctors I don't look.
    I just have no idea how much I weigh and do you know what? I couldn't care less and I've never been this happy (mentally and physically).

    You're doing really great. Your blog is such an
    inspiration for so many people.
    Keep up the good work!
    I write on a blog too, if you want to stop by sometimes!

  2. This means so much to me. How did you finally learn to accept yourself? And be happy with yourself? How did you recover your self esteem? For me, I guess that means getting to where I can be happy, getting in shape. Only that's a lot easier said than done, because i've never known what it's like, I don't know how to get there.

    But it is hard to make that leap of faith.... to really recover when you don't know whats waiting on the other side.... how things ate gonna be. But its just to take that chance!!!
