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!

To all my followers:




Ok.... you might just be sitting there, looking at this post and thinking, 'WTF?' i dont blame you.
  What i am trying to get at... with all the pictures!! Is that, i thank all of you my readers for actually reading my blog and for you who take your time to comment!
  It means so much to me :) Just like i am here to support all of you, i know that you are also here to support me. Always leaving lovely messages and compliments, and even just sharing small stories or how your day has been! I love it.

  I mean... i write about what i do during my day, so you can share your day aswell... if you want!! Haha
  And dont ever be scared to like share your success, or your progress!! I love hearing/reading when someone has made progess in their reocvery... even if its just like, i ate on my own. I ate what i was supposed to eat. I ate ice cream for the first time... or even just like, i was able to spend a whole day with my family and actually enjoy myself!!
 It always makes me smile, and im always happy for the person, even if i dont even know them!! ´

Any eating disorder or mental disorder are hard, and hard to recover from... but its possible and thats the main thing!!
  All of you who are struggling, and finding recovery hard... just remember, that it is possible to get your life back. To be happy again and to do normal things with out your ED controlling you.
 You are all wonderful, beautiful people... never forget that. And there are people who care and love you!

This post is for all of my readers!! :) i started blogging back in 2009, when i first started realising that something was wrong.... when i was pruging. After spending hours online, i came to the conclusion that i was bulimic, even though i barely ate anything, what i did eat came back up again.
  I started the blog, just writing out my thoughts and how i was coping. I then stopped blogging as i couldnt concentrate anymore, and i was so deep in anorexia. I spent most of my days crying, self harming and exercising.
   I've deleted most of my very first posts, when i thought i was bulimic. It wasnt until i got the diagnose anorexia nervosia that i really started blogging again.
   And since then... 2,5 years later. Heere i am, with almost a thousand readers each day. And many lovely people who take the time to comment.
  Never did i think that people would read my blog, i wrote it just for myself.
  I still dont really understand why people read... But dont stop!! haha XD
  Many have been reading for a year or two, and know my whole recovery journey, and many have gone back and read through my posts.
   My blog is very honest, i dont try to hide things. Which can both be good and bad.
 
It means so much though that you all care, and enjoy reading my blog!! :)

You are all wonderful!!!

  2. Ok, when i read this i really knew that i had to write a comment.
    I wanted to thank you - even though you're probably not aware of how much you have helped me in the last 10 months or so.
    Since i started recovery I found your blog and was sooo happy to find a recovery blog with a girl that didn't relapse all the time! You've never been triggering to me - always helpful and someone to look up.
    Even though you're younger to me, I have so much respect for the whole person you are and I'm folliwing you blog every.single.day. to see if there's something new up in your life.
    And now that you've become such a healthy person - and i see myself recovered too, it's a delight to read about your exercise and your eats and your everyday problems.
    Often i reminded myself of that strong girl that was really sick and became healthy and then i gained strength to keep walking on, too!
    I hope you keep blogging - in whatever way you want to- i'll stay close and read and share my thought with you from time to time in an email.
    Now that I'll move to Berlin, a new world opens up for me and i'll leave all my ED struggles behind me. Yesterday, I realised - I AM A RUNNER. I loved to run in the rain for 45minutes and i can't wait to get back on track tomorrow after my rest day.
    You're very inspiring for me and my next goal is to run 10k without stopping!
    And slowly i'm learning to accept my body. All i struggle with is seeing myself the way i am - still underweight. But i feel finde and normal, eat soo much cereal and Nutella and natural peanutbutter (and lots of HEALTHY FOOD, too hahahah) that I'm sure, that i don't deprieve myself. If this is the weigth my body chose to stay at - i'm fine. I like the way I eat.
    And you were one of the persons that were the most helpful ones during my recovery.
    Thanks for helping me coming so far.
    Enjoy your weekend girl
    <3
