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

Do i like the way i look?

Are you comfortable in your body now? Do you like the way you look?

My answer is definitely Yes!! 90% of the time i like the way i look. I can look at myself in the mirror and just be happy... i can see things which i dislike about myself... my hair, my nose, my hands. But i dont let those things bring me down, instead i focus on other things.

Of course i have my days where i just feel fat, where i look at myself and think i look huge. Where i feel very uncomfortable in my own skin and want to hide from everyone. But those feelings are ok, even normal people have them. But i dont let those thoughts or feeligns control me. Instead on those days i try to spend a little extra on how i look... i avoid mirrors, as that wont make me feel better. I try to disconnect myself from the thoughts in my head and just keep living life... not let fat feelings contrl the way i act or think or behave.
   And they dont.

Those bad body image days arent very common, i get them more often when i am stressed and the days where i dont eat enough, then i usually end up with those types of thoughts. It just shows how important food is for health, energy and thoughts!!!

I am very comfortable in my skin otherwise! :)

  2. Well I'm telling you, you do have every reason to be proud of your appearance! You're a pure stunner, as I already mentioned in one of my first comments on your blog :--) aand to my eye, there's nothing wrong to be seen in those things that you listed, either.
