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!

I got this blog quiz from Kendel and thought it would be fun to join in :)
Refuse to do for the rest of your life: Have people control me.... Not sure if this makes sense, but basically. Im never going to let people control me... i will make decisions for myself.
Always do forever: Take selfies and pictures of everything.... seriously, the moment i stop doing this, that is when life will be tragic and grey forever!!! Take pictures, make memories, take those selfies if you feel awesome
Certifiably disgusting: Bad body odour. I mean, im not always smelling like roses and perfume, especially not when im working out and sweating like crazy. I dont want to judge people, i mean its happened where i havent had water at home or i didnt have time to wash after a workout, so sure... i havent always smelled great, so i prefer to not judge people and their body odour... but when its a regular thing, then it makes me begin to question their body hygiene.
Absolutely amazing: How exercise can make me feel so amazing and great? Like seriously, taking a 20 minute walk and suddenly i have 5 post ideas and can finish writing my essay as well as feeling super happy, energetic and focused!!! I mean its all science and stuff, but still... its amazing, right?
Feel on top of the world: When i got told at the gym that i was amazing to watch because i looked so strong, focused and powerful. But i also once got a comment at the gym from a person who had seen me when i first began working out in 2012 and they told me that i had made so much progress and looked great and strong now!!! That put a huge smile on my face!!
Pretty upset: When i was recovering and i was told that i had gotten alot bigger and was eating too much food!!! XD Now i laugh... though i must admit, i still despise that person who told me that... and i find it quite difficult to be around that person, but luckily that person i only meet once a year or so!!
Hate: I dont really hate any names.... or there is one guy name which i dislike, but i am not going to post it online ;)
Love: I have always loved the name Chelsea for some reason!
Know is entirely false: I dont really know what people say about me.... XD Hopefully they dont say mean things... i guess people might say im shy... which i am to some extent, but its more that i analyze and until you get to know me then i can seem silent and a bit heldback.
Think is on point: Im positive and always happy... this is on point and i love when people tell me this :)
Can’t stand: Melted cheese.... Nope... dont like it. and hard bread.... BLahhhh.
Can’t get enough of: Salted nuts or chocolate covered nuts. Or freshly baked bread.... can eat all of this all the time!
Turn off immediately: “Shut Up and Let Me Go” by The Ting Tings. HATE IT! (Same answer as Kendel, but its the worst song.)
Belt out the lyrics to: I cant really think of any song now... but if i know a song i am likely to have whisper the lyrics, haha. Though i dont sing, unless im at the club then i might :)
Fear: Cows!!! Super freaky, hate them!
Need in your life right this instant: A puppy!! A new little beagle puppy... or a mini hedgehog!
(I want one for a Valentines present!!! #JOKE )
Will never ever eat: Red meat.... frog..... insects
Would eat for every meal if you were given the chance: Salted nuts. Chicken. Fruit. Brocolli. Salmon. Granola with milk. Questbars.
Would love to, but would probably never resort to: Laser surgery for my hands and arms... as i have self harm scars, but i also have scars on my hands from scars that never healed... and i have a serious hate for my hands because of it. It looks like those caluses you get from purging, when its just scars that healed weird and then i bite on them when im stressed :(
Just stick to: Concealer... always!!! And of course enough food combined with exercise = Energy and a healthy glow and happiness!
