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

Small changes add up to big changes..

This saying, goes for both ways....
   In recovery, its small steps that add up to the big thing. Like the first time you eat a sandwich without cheating with the butter, the first time you actually eat a snack on your own, the first time you eat ice cream, the first time you actually let yourself relax after a meal.... all those things add up to a big thing.
   And then of course, its the other way as well.... you stop eating carbs, you start exercising more, you walk instead of taking the bus, you dont eat breakfast, you lock yourself in your room... small things... all add up to a big thing, which can be disastorous....

In recovery, you have to take small steps, at the time you think it wont matter... but they will. And you have to realise, that small things like not eating carbs, or not eating lunch... thye turn into big thigns... big disastorous things.
  And dont think that you will just self harm once, because it doesnt usually stay that way... it spirals out of control...

These choices, these steps... they're all up to you!!! Its you who has to make these small steps.... its your life, your choice.

So make the right choice!

  1. Jag har just det problemet, jag har nyss börjat gå halvdagar i min nya skola och går från 9-12. Har anorexi men har bestämt med lärarna att jag ska äta lunchen hemma de första två veckorna.
    Hur gör man för att våga äta ensam?
    Har du något tips på vad man kan göra för att inte känna sig dålig och träna efteråt?

    du kan svara till min mail, om du vill.
    tack.

  2. Izzy I know you must be busy and all, but if you could check out my post titled "What is recovery" that would be amazing. I mean I feel like this post was sent to me, or at least has a reason for it. Y'know? I feel like you might be the only person to be able to give me a point in any direction, which is better than it is now.
    If you could check it out, or comment on it, or anything, that would be amazing!!! Of course I know you are a busy girl, and i'm sure a lot of people say what I just said, so if you don't have time, don't worry about it!
