Life without Anorexia

My motto is
'Dont let the sadness of your past & the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present'

I am a generally happy girl who loves running, going to the gym and eating food!! Though my life has been very different.
I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia & purging tendencies & over exercising. I was depressed and self harmed. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
After alot of struggles, lots of ups and downs, suicide attempts, tears, anxiety, panic and never thinking i would be healthy.
I am now declared healthy from anorexia nervosia.

I have been blogging for 4 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 am happy and healthy and living my life. Going to school, meeting friends and trying to find myself in this world.

I write about my daily life, but also try to write posts about how it was when i was sick, advice and tips.
I am open and friendly, so dont be scared about writing a post or sending me an email at:

My favourite films

I got asked about my favourite films so i thought i would give you a little list :)

I am not a huge film fan - though i once was. I could spend my whole day watching films, which i often did as i could spend weeks at home sick due to my CF. I actually thought being a movie critique would be a good job for me... i mean, eating popcorn and watching movies and then writing your critique/review...What a great job :)
    But now i feel i am too restless to watch films... on my own anyway. Sometimes during the evenings i watch films but usually its just series which are 40 minuts - and they still take me anywhere from  60-90 minutes to watch because i always end up doing other things. Whether i go up to do the dishwasher, or sit and write a blog post or even go out with the dog (in the middle of the series ;))!!
Here are some of my favourite films (though basically i love all Johnny Depp films... so i'm not goiing to bother mentioning them all :))

Pirates of the Caribbean - The black Pearl (I was not a huge fan of the 2nd,3rd and 4th? i think there is a 4th)

Wildchild - hahaha, i just love this film no matter how many times ive seen it!

The holiday

Eternal Sunshine of the spotless mind

Shutter Island

Forrest Gump

Bridget Jones Diary (1&2)

Memoirs of a Geisha




^^These are films which i know the story line and how they go perfectly because ive watched them all a minimum of 5 times each :)
  But i can still watch them again and again and still enjoy them :)
