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:

Fear foods & clean eating

I am afraid that if I allow myself to eat fear foods, I will get addicted to them. I don't want to abandon healthy eating. Tips please?

You have to face your fear foods someday... you cant live your life scared of certain foods, thats not living life.
  And if you keep telling yourself that you cant eat something, then you are more likely to binge on it once you do eat it. Its like when a person diets or restricts... they just focus on what they cant eat. All they think about is foods they cant eat and once they do eat the food they cant stop....
   Ask yourself why you are scared of those foods? What is it that is so scary... you wont become fat or gain weight just because you eat a certain food, it doesnt work that way. You need to overcome your fears.

Also know that being obsessed with healthy eating isnt healthy... that can be orthorexia if you are obsessed with just eating certain foods and not allowing yourself anything 'processed'. Dont restrict yourself, instead find a balance with all types of food.

Here are some posts which can help:

Face your fears and fight your ED!!
