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:

Getting through the day

Middle of the week and the tiredness has kicked in!!
  Not sure how you guys feel, but im the type of person who on Mondays (apart from this week) often has lots of energy and is ready for the week. Then by Tuesday i am longing for the weekend and on Friday im excited that its the weekend in just a few hours... and then i love weekend :) How do you feel? Are you the type of person who hates the weekend? Has lots of energy all week and little during the weekend? Or just sort of tries to survive the week?

Onto my day? Its been ok. Nothing spectacular...Dont have so much to share, not like anything amazing has happened. Nope, more like.... typical day in school. 
  I had planned to stay an hour or two in school after my lessons had finished to study, but during my last class i felt like i was almost falling asleep and i was so hungry that i decided that i would go home instead. Also i got a little work done during my break so i didnt feel too stressed, though of course i have a test tomorrow and an oral test on Friday. Though surprisingly im staying calm... maybe its all the great advice you have shared? :)

When i came home i made a delicious snack: Quark mixed with yoghurt and muslie mix, crisp bread with spread and chicken & an orange and coffee. (& a row of Daim chocolate was eaten afterwards as well :))

The funny thing is that people either think i dont eat alot... because of the way i look and think i eat the amount of a 5 year old. Or people are genuinly shocked by the amount i eat. Wonder how i can even physically fit it inside of me... Both reactions surprise me :) My snacks for me are normal, they are a normal size. Though for many i guess they are plus size ;) But for me it works! This is what i need for my energy expenditure and to keep my body functioning properly. So im not complaining.
  I can almost compare myself to a dog... can just keep eating. :)

This evening it will be a mix of studying and series watching :)
Pretty much my life summed up... food, studying and series :) But its not a bad life!


  1. I looooove weekends! And i love thursdays and fridays as well:) but the rest of the week it just feels like i have no energy at all!(especially on mondays).
    I have another question: when you started to exercise in recovery, did you still eat the same amount of food or did you eat extra because of the calories you had to burn? I mean when you already tried to maintain:) Thank youxxx

    1. Hmmm... i really cant remember. I wasnt counting calories or following a meal plan then.. but at first i began overdoing it with cardio and under doing it with food... i find that when i do cardio i burn more than i think and dont eat enough to replace that. I dont feel as hungry after cardio as i do after weight lifting. SO thats a bonus for me as well with weights :) Extra appetite!

  2. Why do people think you don'teat alot?

    1. Because of the way i look.. and also people presume because i train so much that i dont eat so much. But BECAUSE i train so much means that i eat even more than others, hahah :) And i also eat plenty of less healthy foods as well :)

  3. I looooooove the weekend, but at the moment I feel like I'm trying to survive the week. This has been hard. On the other hand, that food looks amazing! Yummmmm.
