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!

If you have any questions leave them in the comment section as i am much quicker at answering there, otherwise you can always send an email: lifewithoutanorexia@hotmail.com

I know Christmas can be a very tough time when you are struggling wtih an eating disorder. Whether its overeating, undereating, only eating certain foods etc it can be tough. I understand that. But Christmas is also a time to be enjoyed. To spend it with family. Alot of people think that Christmas is just about food... its the Christmas chocolate and abking and Christmas food and alcohol... and then after Christmas you see 101 advertisments about losing the Christmas weight. PÅeople talking about their new years resolution to lose weight and not eating carbs again or something like that But Christmas is so much more than food, but spending time with the people you like. Whether that is friends or family or a partner etc
  In fact i feel sorry for all the 'normal' people who cant really enjoy Christmas because despite being healthy all they talk about during Christmas is how they shouldnt be eating something or that they will start at the gym or something. They feel guilty for eating, when that shouldnt be the case at all.

But onto the actual topic of this post... I am going to try to answer as i can today  - though i will be busy making Christmas food, studying and travelling. But over Christmas i wont be answering emails. I might log on and reply to a few emails if i have time and energy for it. But i am also going to take a break with that for a few days.

You can always email me, but i cant tell you when i will respond. I will however still be blogging like usual :) Though i doubt people will read my blog during Christmas anyway, But there will be more 'myself' posts and maybe not so much 'how to cope' posts :)

I'm sure you all understand :) And i know you can cope!! Sewt up some goals and have a good coping mechanism :)
