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!

If you have any questions leave them in the comment section as i am much quicker at answering there, otherwise you can always send an email: lifewithoutanorexia@hotmail.com

Recovery motivation quotes

"I don’t need to be skinny just because my friends are skinny.
I don’t have to skip lunch just because my friends skip lunch.
Just like
I don’t have to jump off a cliff just because my friends jump off a cliff.
"
I am not them, I am me. (via believe-in-edrecovery)


"You’re going to be able to counter some disordered thoughts easily, while others will take longer to root out. You’re going to let go of some behaviors more quickly than you let go of others. That doesn’t mean you’re failing or that you’re flawed or bad at recovery. It’s just how recovery works. You win some fights faster than others."


~Not visit the doctor
~Not go to therapy
~Not tell a friend
~Not increase your intake
~Not feel you are sick enough
~Not get the help you desperately need
But ignoring your eating disorders voice and doing exactly what seems so scary is the essence of recovery. It is what separates being in active recovery and not being in recovery. It starts with forcing yourself to do what you fear. 



It’s ok to eat, really,
even when
you are painfully aware of every inch of your body.
'Less, less, less'
You say; always less.
But your body
was not made to subtract from.
I know it hurts, to be inside you,
but please, eat, eat.
And fight, you have to fight,
Just because your mind tells you to starve
it doesn’t mean it’s the right thing to do.
"
'But please, eat' (via adayinmy-shoe)
