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:

  1. Do yo ever feel that you need to eat more when you eat with your family just to show them? When you are not hungry and your family has planned to eat together what do you do?

    1. Well my family know how i eat and if i say ive already eaten before... i.e say i eat a big snack at 4.30pm after school and we've decided to eat dinner at 6/6.30pm then i might not eat as big a dinner as i would have if i would have eaten later... but then i eat a big night snack. But even on the days where i eat less because im not hungry i eat more than my family hhaah ;);)
      If i amnt hungry because say i have stomach pain then i tell them that and just eat as much as i can. They dont have anything to be worried about, i dont even need to explain why i would eat less.
      Its about trust and the longer it goes from you being sick the more trust you earn and your parents have no reason to distrust you :)

  2. Looks awesome :) I´ve been meaning to ask you to repost the recipe on those fish patties? Could it be possible?

    Cheers ;)
