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

Living a life of fear is not living at all

I just want to remind you all that Living a life of fear is not living at all. If you are controlled by your fears and they stop you from living, hold you back in life then that is not true living at all. Im not saying you need to go bungee jumping and running with lions just to show you have no fears. But if you dont go out with friends because you dont want to be made to eat or you dont meet family because you dont want them to see you. If you live your life alone, the same routines and habits everyday yet you hate it but you dont want anxiety then you are merely surviving. Getting by each day... but really whats the point? Why not face and fight the anxiety?
  It wont kill you, but eventually the voice in your head will...

You CAN fight back. You CAN change your thoughts and routines. You CAN become healthy.

Life doesnt have to be this way, but change doesnt just happen like that, it happens because you make a change.

  1. It is AMAZING how often I come to read your blog and what you have written applies to me. Even applies to the day I've had / to the feelings I'm feeling at the moment I read your posts. I want you to know how much you're helping me - I'm doing my best to recover but keep messing it up and feel like I'm just panicking all the time. Thank you for writing so often and for reassuring me that other people feel the way I do! You are an absolute inspiration <3

    1. Im not going to talk about weigh as it can be triggering for some people, but for having alot of muscle my weight is not where i want it to be anyway.. i am still a healthy weight and a healthy BMI so nothing wrong with that. But i guess from a personal standpoint, it would be better if it was a little higher.
      But i dont care about the number, we dont have a scale at hgome and i dont weigh myself at the gym so the number doesnt matter to me. I dont know whether i go up or down, its only when i get weighed at hospital appointments but i just thought it would be higher, thats all. So was a little surprised.

  3. Just wanted to tell you that I think you write very good motivational posts. You made a good point and really set things straight. When people are sick they can't really think straight. These posts are inspiring. I also love it your ramble posts. But really I enjoy everything you post from food pictures to old posts. Thank you! :)
