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!

What is the best thing about being recovered?

I was too tired yesterday to write this post so i guess i will just have to start a day later (good role model and example!). But as i made up the challenge and there are no rules, then i guess its ok :)

So, the question today is:
What is the best thing about being recovered?


I would have to say the freedom. The freedom of choice and spontaneity. To do what i feel like - to some extent. To not have to overthink before i say yes to things. To not worry about travelling or worry about what the day brings and whether plans change or not. To not worry about what is served for lunch in school. Not have to worry about compensating for food. Eating to give me energy, nourishment but also enjoyment. I know its the whole 'eat for function' thing, but in the end. Food should also be enjoyed, just like sleep. We sleep for function, just like we should move our body but it should also be enjoyed :)

The best thing is also the energy, the happiness, the life. Having energy for things, being able to concentrate in school, being able to see progress with workouts, Being happy and enjoying time spent with friends and family. Not being cold all the time. Not being bloated all the time. Not feeling fat all the time. Not having lanugo hair or dry skin or falling out hair. But having nice skin, hair and nails!!

There are so many good things about recovery, but these are just some of the ones that come to mind right away!
