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:

Dont believe everything you see - Reality check.

I thought i would make a quick little reminder post to remind you all to NOT get caught up in what you see online.... or to get stuck comparing yourself with pictures of others. You see a photo where the picture has often been enhanced or fixed in someway, even if its just brightness and colour. They stand and pose in a certain way, there is a certain light and certain angle. They post their BEST picture after maybe 20-50 pictures taken.
  They want to make themselves look good... but remember, most people dont walk around looking like a picture. I mean i can post some photos where i look better than i do in actuality and ofcourse i think i look good in them... i barely look like myself or like i usually look, even if its my body. But its also angles and light, but i think the picture looks good so i post it. And i have a right to do that, but of course... i might not walk around on a daily basis and have a defined stomach. Because i definitely dont. I have stomach rolls and cellulite and stretch marks. My stomach bloats alot and sticks out, thats ok.

Below are some photos where people are brave enough to show the truth and i think it is great!

First picture me.... look at the difference that a different pose can do.

Here is another lovely lady showing the difference that posture and flexing makes.
And another one.

And this photo (SOURCE: X)

(P.s these 3 girls look amazing no matter how they look. And YOU look amazing no matter how you look!)

And also this video below is super good.
