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:

Recovery advice from Ange - 'How Nutella saved my life'

Hi guuuuuys, I am Ange and I am a 19 year old student from Germany. This year I´ve been diagnosed with anorexia nervosa and since then I am trying to fight against it. My BMI was down to 13 and many people wanted to see me in hospital, but now the only direction is up! Of course I have my ups and downs but in general I keep staying motivated and want you to do this, too. Winking face 
And because I am so thankful for reading Izzy´s blog everyday and she helps me sooo much in every situation, I simply wanted to start my own blog. And even though I am not fully recovered, I want to help YOU other fighters by telling my story, too Smiling face (black and white) You have to get your ass up and although each step may get harder, don´t stop! The view is beautiful at the top and recovery is so much worth it!

In fact, on my blog "How Nutella saved my Life" I am writing about my daily life, experiences and feelings while I am struggling in my personal recovery from this ED. Why my blog is called like that? It is quite simple: In the most difficult time of being ill in July, I for the first time honestly wanted to start my recovery by eating something from my fear food list. And that was a heart-warming toast topped with Nutella. Smiling face with smiling eyes Since that day I started my journey back to becoming me again... and every day I eat two of those toasts for breakfast Smiling face (black and white)
Hope you are all doing well and I wish you lots of power to keep going against your ED! You can do it!
