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!

Favourite band? Or a band you'd like to see live one day?
I feel like such a boring person when i say that i don't have a favourite band or artist. I listen to so much different music and it varies from day to day.  I love listening to music, but i am not someone who feels they have to see an artist live, though it is fun to do that. For now i don't think i have a certain band or artist which i really want to see live.

Some place you'd like to visit one day?
Hawaii, Florida, California, LA, Thailand. Different parts of Spain, Italy and France. And SO MANY other places :)

Favourite childhood memory?
I have many, but the one that first comes to mind is when we got our first dog. It was a summer day and my mum had picked my sister, her friend and I up from school and when we came home we began playing out in the garden. Then our dad arrives home and walks up to the house carrying this big brown box, we're all curious as to what he is carrying and then we see it's this tiny little dog (a jack russel). And it was puppy-love at first sight!! He ran around and around and was such a cute puppy and then while he was running around i began saying 'Go buddy. Go buddy' and after that, we decided to call him Buddy, and he became my dog. Though he was a family dog, it was still a present for me :) (the next dog, a female jack russel became my sisters dog)!

Your favourite inspirational quote?

If you were to become famous, what would it be for?
I am hoping that it will be because i inspire alot of people and can be some sort of health-inspiration person :) 

Do you believe in God? What is your relationship with faith?
I dont really know what i believe in. I grew up going to church every Sunday and had to have my communion and confirmation. Though i never felt like i believed in God, i was doing it just because i was told to. So now when i am older, i dont really label myself. Am i believer, am i not? I don't know... its a very personal and individual thing and i respect everyone. I do think that people who believe in God can be very helpful for them to get them through tough times, however that was not something that worked for me. If anything, what i went through made me less believing. But i dont like writing about religion or politics on my blog as it can trigger things within people but also everyone has different opinions and that is ok, that is how it should be :)

Do you pray?

What would you name your future children?
This is really hard as i dont think so much about that. I dont know if i want children or not - though i most probably will, but i dont really know. So i dont really think about future names of children though i like the name Chelsea for a girl :)

What are your favorite beverages?
This will be a long list!!

Water, coffee, BCAA's ,green tea, chai tea, Celsius, NoccaBcaa, funlight, cola zero, smoothies, Aloe Vera etc

How tall is A?
A few cm taller than me anyway :) Though if i wear my heels i will be taller than him... hahaha.

Do you believe in this whole Minnie Maud thing "eat more to boost your metabolism and then be able to eat a lot during your entire life" ?
I do sort of believe it as that is what i did in recovery. But i also believe in reverse dieting for those who have metabolic damage. It takes time, its not like you can increase 500kcal over night and suddenly your metabolism speeds up. There is a whole process and science behind it. Though in recovery from a restrictive eating disorder i do believe that you should keep increasing your intake and be eating around 2500-3500+ a day to help increase your metabolism. This is because if you are gaining weight and keep gaining though you are eating around 1500-2000kcal, then that means that when you want to maintain you either need to add exercise into your lifestyle or eat a little less. But also that you would be eating a small amount for maintenance, but if you are gaining when you eat around 3000kcal that means that you should be able to eat about 2500-3000kcal a day without weight gain. Though once again, its a whole science behind it and also things like genes, DNA, lifestyle, metabolism etc all matter. Because no, some people will never be able to eat 3000kcal without gaining loads of weight whilst others can eat that amount for maintenance.  You can do some research on MM but i think it can be helpful and that aiming to increase calories during weight gain is optimal :)

Do you know anybody from Norway?
I dont think so... hahaha. I know people from all over the world so maybe i do? I think i do actually, hahaha XD
