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:

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!


  1. you are so right when you say freedom ;) i feel like a bird let out from a cage <3

  2. I can totally relate!! And dont worry about starting late, its totally ok!! :)
