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:

Busy doing nothing

Thinking about these past few days and realising i really havent done so much. Some people might consider that a waste of a break.... that during your break you should do loads of things, not just be at home. But for me, this is exactly how i want to spend my break. I havent just been at home, i have been in the city, ive been to the gym, ive been to the library, ive had family time and i have also gotten some studying done. Now that... people might find crazy. But the fact is, that once i start the new school term i will once again be bombarded with deadlines, assignments and essays. I already have many dates filled in, reminding me of what awaits. So preparing now, will make it easier when the school term begins.
  Also, for my individual project, the first draft has to be handed in, in only a few weeks time, and i've written about 18 pages already and im no where near ready!!! So thats going to take some time to finish and edit.
  Though, for those of you who dont know i am doing my project on how yoga helps with stress, concentration and cardiovascular health. So its all really interesting to me, so i dont mind working on it..... well only really when it has to be very formal,detailed and scientific writing... then it starts feeling more like school work again!

So.... soon its the New Year, Only 2 more days. I feel like many people are waiting for the New Year to make a change. They feel that the New Year will bring about a new attitude and mindset, but the truth is. January the 1st is just another day, just like May 12th or November 17th.... you can make a change whenever. You can make a change right now and keep making that change. You dont need a New Monday, a New Month or a New Year.  Its also important to remember that unless YOU make a change then nothing will change. Dont expect 2015 to be different from this year unless you make it different.

I think those reminders are good for everyone. I personally feel like alot of people have just sat around waiting for Christmas, waiting for New Years and hoping that things get better. But not making a change, just hoping. A New Year does bring new chances and oppertunities, but if you are too scared to take them or too scared to make a change then it doesnt really make a difference.

Enough morning talking!! Its time to get ready for this day :) I had set my alarm this morning as i prefer to have a more structured day and not lose my routines and sleeping habit when school starts. But i turned off my alarm and slept 80 minutes more... its weird how getting up at a reasonable time i.e not too early and not too late can be so hard during the break. But during school days i can get up at 4.30am if i have to and be wide awake?

I hope you all have a lovely day!!!

Are you planning to make a change for the New Years? Do you have any goals for 2015?


  1. To some people a new year does have new chances and opportunities that the year didn't have before. Some people start with university, or move into their own apartment, start a new job, move and meet new people. All these things are good and something to look forward to. New challenges await that you can tackle. Waiting for a new year to make changes is sometimes all you can do to get to a better place in life and there's nothing wrong with that. What matters is that you've taken all the terrible things that may have happened the previous year and you decide to be strong in spite of those things and to let go.

    1. Yes of course, that is definitly true. But some people spend their whole life waiting and never taking action. Some things you need to wait for of course, i mean im waiting and longing until i begin University, i cant just begin with it now. But still... i could sit and wait for it and hope i get in but not do the work, not do the research, not plan for university just wait...
