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!

Normal eating is different everyday

Something which i came to think about is that through my blog it may seem like I have the perfect eating habits. Eat my 5-6 meals, have balance with food etc
  Or maybe not?  haha

I know I can also get comments about how it seems like I always eat so healthy. But the fact is, how I eat and how much I eat doesn't come up on my blog so much. Sometimes I post pictures or write what u eat but that's like 5% of my day.... If I eat chocolate after lunch I dint feel the need ro write about it, just to prove that I can and so eat chocolate. Just like I don't write that i ate cake for dessert yesterday.
  I dont write the days where I miss an afternoon snack or end up snacking all day. The days where I ate very little or the days where I eat so much out of boredom or because I feel this constant hunger. .... All those things are just part of life and living healthy.
   Everyday isn't the same. I dont eat the same way everyday.
  There is not 1 number of calories i eat everyday, one day I might eat 1800 and the next day 2800 - yes, there can be big differences in the amount I eat in a day.

Food is part of life and living.  You can't control and plan every meal. There are days you forget to eat, and other days you spend your whole day eating.  I'm only human... and there is nothing wrong with that. Don't feel like you have to eat perfectly everyday to be healthy. ... letting go of all types of rules and regulations about food is what makes you healthy and free. I dont plan my meals until I'm about to eat them. I dont spend my time thinking about food,  unless there is a food I'm craving. Life is more than perfection,  calories and food. So learn to live life and listen to your bodies signals when it comes to food and eating!

  1. Yes yes yes and YES! I realized I was finally free from my ED when I would have so called "eat days" (days where I feel like my stomach is a bottomless pit and can't stop eating, often from boredom) and be absolutely okay with it!
