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

Reminder

Top tip: if you’re looking in the mirror at your stomach and feeling upset with how ‘fat’ you’ve gotten over the holiday period… look at your legs. Look at your arms. Are they any bigger? No. You haven’t gotten ‘fat’ over the Christmas week (or month), you’re just bloating out. Bloating disappears in a matter of days. Stay calm and dont panic.

    1. It depends if you are lactose intolerant or not... but yoghurt has good bacteria which can help precent bloating. But going for lactose free or greek yoghurt/plain yoghurt is best:)

  3. Hey izzy is it ok if I eat a large meal, then I'm not hungry for a long time, do I have to FORCE my body to eat if I'm not hungry? I worry cuz you hear oh it slows your metabolism blah blah, what do you think? Can't I just wait till im hungry again? Btw I'm recovered not needing to gain or anything, just an honest question for a healthy body :)

    1. If you are a healthy body weight, then listening to your body is what you should do... i.e if you arent hungry, then you dont need to eat. Its different during weight gain.
      But for example today, i haev gotten horrible stomach pains after dinner so i dont think i will be eating a night snack even though i always do otherwise, but today i cant manage it. And thats ok, thats how my body and hunger is today. Each day is different :)
