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!

Thursday evening

Hello :):)

Its Friday morning (??) here in Sweden but it feels like its Saturday as i amn't in school today. I keep having to remind myself that its Friday and that i have to send in an essay today... though all i want to do is just take a mental break now. Not have to sit and edit an essay, but thats life!!! Im going to work on it in a little while, then send it in and then not have to worry about it. Though school work stills need to be done during the break :/ But im not going to focus on that!!!

Yesterday the plan was to eat dinner with A and then go to the cinema, however when i was on my way to A i started getting the worst stomach pain - i think it was due to stress and having to eat my snack in like 5 minutes and then clean my room, pack, get ready, blog etc etc so just so much to do in so little time and my stomach turned into a knot. So when i got to A's place i just felt sick and felt no hunger at all, so instead we ate a light dinner and decided to just watch a movie at his place. He was understanding and i think he was a little relieved to just watch a movie at home because otherwise it would have been a super late night and he had to get up at 6am this morning to go to work... so i think he liked the fact that we went to bed at 10!!! XD
  Then this morning he had to get up at 6am whilst i slept until 8am.... nice with a little sleep in :) And then i had an hour long journey to get to the gym where i wore my new shorts and sports bra (which i bought yesterday) and i felt super fancy and bad ass!!!




Its always fun and motivating to buy new sports clothes! Though i am a sports clothes addict... i have more sports clothes than normal clothes!! I cant help it :)

The plan today is to study, watch some series then go back to A's place (I got keys to his place.... I guess you can say things are pretty serious. hahahah XD) and then im hoping that we make tacos tonight!!

Just a little update!! Also i was wondering... Do you want me to make a video about any certain topic? COMMENT below and i might make one today!!

  3. Please do a video today! It would be good if you could do one on a combination of things: maybe about how when you recover/are at the end of recovery, it takes time to enjoy life again (i.e. this doesn't just happen overnight, and it's not just being recovered that solves your problems/being recovered doesn't mean you will be happy?), having a balance of things in your life, trying different things/realising that some change is good for you? xxx

  5. I would like a video on maybe trying to limit yourself eating really nice things all the time once you are fully recovered. or even how to trust yourself with food. i find it really hard - i am weight recovered but have such anxiety around "nice" foods still and feel i overeat them.
