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:

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.
