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

Bikini body?

Its approaching summer time - if you arent already calling it summer. But most people now are panicking because they dont have their so called bikini body. They start working out frantically, eating next to nothing, all in the hopes of losing 5kg so that they can look good for the beach....
  I laugh at this behaviour. People - both guys and girls, all ages - behave this way every year. The sad thing though is that they feel the need to lose weight infor summer  because of society and social media.
   People ar showing more skin, those who have the 'bikini body' arent afraid to show it off....I mean you could acuse me of doing the same thing (i.e showing myself in a bikini), ?

People are panicking about their cellulite, stretch marks and their stomach and thighs. Wanting a flat stomach and their thighs to not jiggle.

But the fact is, those are just silly things to worry about. So what if you have stretch marks or cellulite? Im pretty sure i have cellulite on the back of my legs (??) but its not even something i pay attention to, or notice. Its not something that will stop me from wearing a bikini.
  Even when i bloat, i can still wear a tigh top, or a crop top. Because in the end, who cares. I cant stop it if my stomach bloats, and having scars, stretch marks, cellulite... its just human.
  I mean in summer my self harm scars become more noticable, as i become more tan, my self harm scars are still pale and while, and they cover my thighs, arms and my stomach (though not as noticable there).

I just want to remind you all that you are beautiful just the way you are. You dont need to change, you dont need to lose weight, you dont need to starve yourself or excessively exercise just to look a certain way.
 
And people behaving this way, dieting just to look a certain way for a few weeks, it doesnt last.... they regain the weight sooner or later, and end up feeling bad or getting anxiety, thinking that they cant keep the weight off. But they are losing the weight in an unhealthy manor.... doing crash diets.
  And this behaviour happens each year. And its not good for the body or your mental health.

You have to take care of yourself, take care of your body and mind all year round. What people often do is in winter, they dont really think about what they eat, and gain weight, only to panic when it comes to summer. But who cares about a bikini body? If you have a body, you have a bikini body!!

Its just to put a bikini on, put on your best smile and have as much confidence as possible!! Those who hate themselves, feel bad about their bodies, or go and up down in weight all the time, only thinking about what they eat or their lifestyle when it comes to summer, those people never truly feeel happy. They lack self esteem and confidence.

Learning to love your body, just the way it is. Is important for happiness!!! Stop trying to change your body. Just be happy! Thats the most important :)
