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:

Answers part 1

How would you define healthy? How do you know when you are healthy?
I would define healthy as mental and physical health. With balance and happiness in your life. Where you can live and enjoy life, you can cope with the ups and downs. Life isnt always easy, there are ups and downs, time when you feel stressed, anxious or guilty over things. But you can cope with those feelings in a positive way, you dont just break down as soon as something bad happens. You can live and enjoy life, that is healthy to me. But also having a healthy mindset, a positive mind set as well as a healthy body. You eat healthy and balanced, you get some activity in during your week and you try to get all your vitamins and minerals in as well as drinking enough water and getting enough sleep, that is all part of being healthy.
How do you know when you are healthy? Trust me, you will know. There is a BIG difference between not healthy and healthy.... Healthy is not a body size, but it is your mental thoughts as well as your physical, inner health. When your body and mind is healthy, when you can cope with all feelings, you feel positive and happy, you have energy and dont feel obsessed, addicted or compelled to certain things then you will feel the freedom of true health. Not restricted health, but actual mental and physical health where the two are combined and work together :)

What is A's job? 
I would prefer to not answer this :) But he works hard, 10-11 hours 4-6 days a week.

Where would you like to work as a 'summer' job(just to earn money, but not as a permanent job)? :) 
Ive been looking to apply to different gyms to either work as an instructor or just at the reception :) Otherwise ive been thinking about getting in contact with different companies and then working for them and doing different demos and such or even just working in a food store :) But im not so sure really!

does anyone else in your family like running? 
My sister does run a bit :) And my step dad used to run alot before as well but the past 1-2 years he has been so busy with work and has had different injuries so hasnt been able to run so much :(

what does your sister study? 
International politics... i think, hahah 

is there an animal you don't like? 
Hmmm, i find cows very creepy, so dont like them so much. And then things like sloths arent the most loveable animals, haha.

what is your favorite color? 
I like hot pink and black :)

favorite song? 
At the moment my favourite songs are:
We are the heart - EXGF
Causal affair - Panic! at the disco

If you could have a superpower, what would it be? 
I think invisibility would be kind of cool to have! Then if i wanted to be alone or just disappear for a while, then i could do that :) But being able to just have whatever i wanted when i wanted it would be kind of cool as well... though thats a bit materialistic!!

did you watch the Oscars?

I havent actually.... though i want to - sort of. But i think i might try to watch the highlights when i get a chance :)
