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:

Questbars or chocolate?

I got asked via email which i would choose from Questbars or chocolate? Which i preferred... and I'm sure that person might not be the only person who wonders this. Because well, I LOVE questbars and chocolate is the best thing i know :)

And choosing either or, is too hard. Because it all depends on the situation.... there are times where i just don't fancy, crave or want chocolate. Not even dark chocolate or chocolate covered nuts, but instead i feel i want more things like eggs, quark and questbars. (i.e more protein rich food). But then there are times where i would 150% choose chocolate over questbars... i want the yummy taste and energy from chocolate.

It all depends on the time, but also what type of chocolate or questbar flavour we are talking about ;) I mean if its a cookies and cream questbar versus digestive chocolate, then i would 200% choose the questbar. But if its Daim chocolate v.s a chocolate brownie questbar, then i would definitely choose the chocolate :) :)

I believe in balance and moderation. Eating too many questbars isn't good, just like eating too much chocolate isn't good.

But if you really need an answer and not satisfied with my 50/50 answer. Honestly i think i would have to say that i would choose chocolate :) I mean if i was stranded on an island I'm sure i would want both, but more likely to bring a lifetime supply of my favourite chocolate (which at the moment is Marabou Biscuit!) (hahaha, just as I'm writing this post my sister comes in and gives me the remaining of this exact bar!!! ^_^)

^^^Don't worry it was empty at this point, so no chocolate for her to eat (as i know its bad for dogs :))


  1. It always wrecks my heart to see how Daisy seems so destined to reach for your chocolates! Poor one was born in wrong body :--( haha

    Does that Marabou flavour taste like Milka Oreo, by the way? I'm noticing some soulsisterhood in the packaging :)

  2. Chocolate is the best!!!
