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:

The night before Christmas eve

For all the Scandinavians, tomorrow is celebration time!! For all the rest of you, you need to wait another day!!! XD
  Here in Sweden and in the rest of Scandinavia we celebrate on the 24th, so that means in only a few hours :) Though i mean when it comes to present time... that isnt done until the evening anyway.

Today after preparing Christmas food, packing and getting ready we filled the car with all our bags and set off on the road to my step dads mums place. Long car journeys in the dark remind me of when i was a child and used to travel 90 minutes every Friday to spend the weekend with my dad!!

When we arrived we got mulled wine (glögg) and gingerbread (pepparkakor) with stilton cheese. We then began preparing (i.e heating up) the food and it was salmon sausages, potatoes, cheese and kale pie and brussel sprouts. Though as i neither like sausages or potatoes i ate the pie and some other things as well as the delicious cheese and kale pie!! When dinner was finished i brought out my ginger bread cake and i can say it was soo good. I had to have 2 large pieces just because it was like heaven in my mouth!! The recipe will be up tomorrow :) (MAKE IT. Yes, you have to... if you like cheese cake, white chocolate or ginger bread or all 3 then you will love this cake!)

And then it was free time... which im spending on my own - to get some me time and writing some posts and also... eating some chocolate!!! I got a package from a reader containing chocolate and oh my gosh!! Milka, i love it :) The Chips Ahoy Milka you cant get in Sweden so that one was extra good  :) And i can admit.... 75% of the chips ahoy and 50% of the oreo is already gone!!There is no such thing as too much food during Christmas time :) Chocolate disappears so easily, one second its there and the next its gone XD

Ive had a lovely evening and soon im planning on joining my family or wathcing a series before i go to bed as tomorrow will be a long day!!!

I hope you are alll doing ok and can look forward to the Christmas celebrations!! :)
