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:

Christmas day!!

Good morning everyone :)
   Its the 25th and Christmas day meaning that alot of people are celebrating Christmas today... though not everyone. Infact not everyone likes Christmas, which i can fully understand. I think Christmas has turned into asort of boasting event about who gets the best presents, who has the pretties outfit, who takes the best pictures etc etc instead of the actual meaning of Christmas. Spending time with loved ones and the whole religious background as well.

This morning i woke up early as my sister got up to go to the bathroom and then she fell back asleep, but i couldnt so i made myself something small to eat before deciding whether to go out for a walk or run or just stay inside. But everyone else was still asleep and it looked so pretty outside with the snow falling so i decided ill run as far as i want to and see where i end up! I also wanted to test my new running belt/reflector which i got :)

When i came home from my run everyone else was awake and the breakfast food was all laid out so it was just to jump in the shower and then make myself some breakfast and coffee!! Breakfast was similar to yesterday - with even more bread afterwards!

The rest of the family have now gone out for a walk so ive sat and looked at University courses for autumn as well as making a list of to do things!!! The 25th in Sweden is still a holiday, but its not as much of a holiday as yesterday... so while it may seem weird to actually be doing something productive, its not really. Not for me anyway!! :)

When the rest of my family come back my step dad is going to take some photos of me when i run in the snow!! Cant wait for that... i have photos from running in the summer, autumn and spring so now to add to that collection with some winter running photos!!! :)

Enjoy your day everyone, no matter what you do :)
