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:

New day, New week, New month

Just like the title says, its a new day, new week and a new month. The perfect time to start your new chapter...To start fighting your ED! To face some of your fears, to cope with the guilt and anxiety. Its the perfect time to make a change. Imagine how far you will have come in a month if you decide today that everyday this month i will focus on my goals, focus on becoming happier and healthier!
  And for those of you who dont have an ED, now is also the perfect time to make that change which you were thinking about... or maybe you are perfectly happy with your life, thats fine too :) Maybe you want to set up some September goals? I have anyway!

I dont think i mentioned about yesterday? So i thought i would do that now!!
   After lunch i got so drawn in in my studying and discussing and sharing ideas with my mum (about my project which i will be working on all year) so that i forgot the time. I had also turned my phone off so as to not be distracted, but that meant that i hadnt got any of my friends messages. hahaha. So when i finally looked at the clock i saw that i was supposed to be at the party right then!! And i wasnt even changed and ready to go & it took me 50 minutes to get there && i had to buy a present on the way ^_^!!!
  Im always the person who is 10 minutes early, so it felt strange to be the one who was late and late i was. But thats ok... they had waited with the cake anyway, so i still got a slice of that & lots of biscuits and cakes. After several hours we felt it was time to go so we all said our good byes and made our way to the public transport.
   Then my sister messaged and asked if i wanted to watch a film and of course i said yes.... i didnt have so many other plans instead of lying in bed and wathcing series and eating, so why not do that on the sofa with company instead? So i went to the shop and bought the treats and snacks, came home, made popcorn & tea. We put on the film and there i sat for the next 2 hours working my way through the snacks :) All together a really good day, both productive with studying and also relaxing with hanging with friends and watching a film!!! The way a Sunday should be in other words :)

Now its time to get ready for school and i already feel like im behind schedule, hahaha!!


  1. Sounds like a wonderful day!
    I was wondering if you read any books related to ED. I know theres 'Does every woman have an eating disorder?'. Do you know if it's any good? Maybe ABA (anorexics and bulimics anonymous). I am planning to go to the bookstore to get 'the fault in our stars' (like you said, I should read it first. And that's exactly what I'll do and I know it's better to read the book first and then watch the movie :)) so I was thinking if you or any other readers know if it's any good/helpful and should I get those books?
    Anyway I also wanted to say I love it when you smile. You have such a beautiful and genuine smile :)
