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!

Quality time with my mum

Its finally the weekend  - Yayy! Anyone else love Friday evenings? I am guessing if you work during the weekends it might not be the same feeling, but for now i am going to thoroughly enjoy my Friday evenings :)

Its only 5pm here in Sweden - so i have the rest of the evening to look forward to, but so far it has been an awesome day :)
   First a super duper awesome workout, it was a short one as it was before school meaning that i dont have so much time, but it's my favourite way to start my day and to give me lots of energy. I also got some nice compliments while working out which added to my increase in happy and energetic feelings! Then class followed by rushing home, drinking coffee, straightening my hair, repacking my bag and then we drove to the hospital where i did allergy tests and like suspected i was negative to all of the ones tested which is nice to know i guess. Then we sat and ate lunch in a hospital cafe - a place where i have sat many times either as an escape from Mando (as Mando is by the main hospital) or during all my stays and visits in the hospital during summer holidays in Sweden (yup.. couldnt escape the hospital even on summer holidays, due to my CF) . Then we headed to the police station where i took my passport photo (which looked awful.... how do people even look good in passport photos? When i saw the photo i burst into laughter and thought... do i really have to have this picture for the next 10 years or so?) Then while i was there i decided i might as well make an ID card as well, so then another picture was taken where, once again it looked like a mug shot and it didnt look like me at all. However i now got a phone call saying that something went wrong so i have to go back there to take a new photo.... Rejoicing because my ID photo looked so awful!!! Hopefully the new one will look better!

There was then some time left over before i had to go back to school so we drove to a cosy little cafe i have been to several times and we ordered a carrot cake and apple pie to share between us, and all i can say is Delicious. Carrot cake has to be one of my favourite cakes.... you would think i love chocolate cake, but actually i dont. Carrot cake is in my top 3 favourite cakes :)

Then back to school for my final lesson before home time and now im waiting for A to finish work so he will come here and i am going to make dinner for us..... :) A perfect way to end a really nice day!

It felt nice to spend some time with my mum as now a days i dont see her so often or spend any time with her. She works evenings and i come home so late most days as well as being away during the weekends so i rarely see or speak to her, or that's what it feels like anyway. So we both agreed it was nice to eat lunch together and take some coffee and cake as well as lots of time to talk in the car :) You cant forget to show love and appreciation to those around you. To take time to spend with friends and family!!! Not all parents or friends are supportive or loving, but those who are - show them your love and appreciation, let them know that you are thankful and care about them!!

So send a message or text or call someone who means something to you and let them know :)


  1. I still can't realize how amazing your thing with A even is! You sound reborn. These kind of things (plus the beauty in regular peace of life, when you pay attention to it) make any struggle worth surviving.

  2. Hi lovely, how are you! I read this article writtent by the DR. McDougall, and was wondering what do you think about it? He speaks about moderation:
