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!

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.

(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.
