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!

  1. All of these are so funny! I can relate to pretty much all of them, but my favorite is 6 ;) I find it a little weird when my family says they are not hungry when I am nearly starving. Even though we ate at the same time and are doing same things. I know everyone is different, but still...
    Also, recently someone asked me how I eat so much. Note: I eat when I'm hungry, I workout, it's usually four (not small) meals a day which works for me. I was preparing lunch and was extra hungry since I had to wait a bit longer to eat as it took a while to get home. I told that person I was having lunch which is normal for most people then asked how many meals they have in a day. The answer was two which I know isn't always true for that person. Though that day it was. It seems as if some people don't like to admit they are hungry or say how much food they want which is screwed up. But of course some just don't need as much food as I do.
    I think you've wrote a post on this before, Izzy. That people with previous ED/distorted eating etc. are more aware of their food intake and are healthier than 'normal' people. That is if they are truly fully recovered. Of course there are many healthy people who've never had problems like that. Also I am more aware of my hunger and don't like to be super hungry, I freak out a little and try to eat as soon as possible. It's almost like my mind automatically thinks I'm restricting again when I don't have food for a while, like I don't want to restrict again or fall back.
    Anyway, have a nice day/morning/evening/night everyone! Wherever you live :)
