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:

Dealing with weight gain in recovery

*not my post*
Dealing with Weight Gain in Recovery
Recovery challenges are also super helpful in general, though these are the more body image-specific ones:
Also, I find affirmations SUPER helpful; here is a guide to making your own, as well as some sample affirmations:
  • "I trust my body to ask for what it needs. It has our best interests at heart!"
  • "I am a full person, NOT just the shape of my body or the number on the scale."
  • "This part of recovery is hard but I’m working on it."
  • “‘Perfect’ is overrated — I want to be happy/healthy/well!”
  • "This weight is just more to love!"
  • "I deserve to take up as much space as I need; if necessary, I will make space for myself. I do not have to shrink for ANYONE. I am important."
  • "I am worthy of love at any weight! My weight is completely irrelevant to my lovableness."
