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!

  1. Hello,
    I'm having a hard time. On the one hand, I try to tell myself "you're looking good, you're actually improving". But I hate feeling full, I hate my butt, I hate this whole big thing. But I know I'd hate it more if I spent my whole life this way, always fighting...I guess every day is like a fight, and I definitely want to get better now. It's just so hard, especially when I want to exercise so much more than I'm doing now. But I'm not avoiding protein now, which is a big thing for me! I'm really trying to include a lot of protein in my diet.... and I love to eat healthily and with awareness. Do you have any advice for those moments when you look in the mirror, and just can't cope with what you see??
    thanks. Your blog= so inspiring.
    luv
    Lizzie

    1. I know how hard it can be to accept your body, espeically after you've gained weight. And i mean everyone gets days where they hate the way they look... but my best advice is to try to just avoid the mirror. And entertain yourself... occupy your mind. So that you dont just sit there thinking about how much you hate the way you look. It can help to get out of the house... call a friend and go for a coffee. Go for a short walk, if you enjoy that. Or read a good book... somethign which will take your thoughts off of your body and your negative thoughts.

      Try to focus on your thoughts, and boost your self esteem & self consciousness. Find good things with yourself, your personality and body. Compliment yourself. Dont bring yourself down. And even in the worst days when you are healthy.... they are nothing compared to the worst days when yo uare sick... Its not worth it to spend the rest of your life fighting and struggling.
      Its great to hear that you are eating protein now :) But remmeber, carbohydrates & fats are important as well :) You can't skip those!!

      Not sure how much exercise you are doing each day... but you cant let exercising become addictive or an obsession. Exercise because you enjoy it. Dont force yourself to go out for a run/walk... (whatever it is you do) just because you feel you 'have' to... :)

      Keep strong. Its hard and takes time. But its worth it.
      Be kind to yourself and your body!!
