Life without Anorexia

My motto is
'Dont let the sadness of your past & the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present'

My life at the moment is completely different to how it once was. I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia and depression as well as struggling with self harm and overexercising. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
And since 2012 i have been declared healthy from my eating disorder.

I have been blogging for 7 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 now blog about recovery, my life, veganism and positivity!

Trust your body


When it comes to eating disorders, trust is a big issue in our bodies. We never know what’s real vs. what’s not. 
Am I really hungry? Or am I feeling a difficult emotion?
Is this really what I look like? Because everyone is telling me it’s not.
And the list goes on…
When we restrict- our bodies lose their trust for us. So the next time we go to eat, we end up bingeing. Our bodies don’t trust they’ll ever be fed again so they’re going to try to stock up. We then, in turn, lose trust for our bodies because they’ve taken over control and done something we feel guilty about. It turns into this never-ending cycle. And we’re the ones that have to break it.

This is just one example… I’m sure you can all think of more specific things in your own relationship with your body that could be used as an example as well.
