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

3 meals from today

Amidst my studying and large pile of work to do i am giving myself a 30 minute dinner break to just do something other than school work and of course to eat!!

Below you see my breakfast: Wasnt super hungry as i ate quite a large night snack at 2am and then only a few hours later after just sleeping it was breakfast time.



My afterschool snack: 1,5 portion egg white fiberoatmeal with cottage cheese, raspberries & walnuts and raisins on the side (ate them all) & 2 wake up energy tablets (2 tablets = 1 cup of coffee. And it tastes like redbull!)


Dinner: Frozen vegetables, quorn meatballs, couscous and cottage cheese & green tea and chocolate as dessert! I 90% of the time eat dessert after dinner (usually yoghurt with rasins and nuts/dark chocolate/normal chocolate/some form of protein bar if i have at home/raw food ball or bar if i have made some!) and then a night snack before bed as well :)

  1. Hi, Lizzy! I'm having some problems because in weekends I feel like i'm eating to much and then I try to compensate the entire week but then it happens agains the next weekend. I don't know what to do because I feel like I'm going to gain so much weight really fast and I don't want that, I mean I know it sounds silly but I kind of like recovery because I can what I want whenever I want....

    1. Hello,
      the problem is that you are compensating, you dont need to do that. Instead you need to try to eat balanced throughout the whole week and then maybe on weekends eat a little extra chocolate or treats. But dont go all or nothing i.e you overeat on weekends, then feel guilty and eat very little on the weekdays and then the cycle repeats itself. You can still eat everything balanced and moderation even when you are a normal weight, but its about finding YOUR balance. In recovery you might be able to eat a little more as you need to gain weight, but even when you are a normal weight you can still eat chocolate, ice cream, crisps etc
      Try to not compensate or eat less on the weekdays and try to not eat lots more on the weekends... if you have a meal plan try to follow that the whole week, or to eat sort of the same amount the whole week, adding in extra bits if thats what you feel like on the weekends. If you dont restrict then you wont feel like overeating either.

    1. Thank you :) I find that they might trigger people and this isnt really a workout blog... so i dont think i will write out my own workouts or any of that (i just do what i feel like when i am there) but if you have any questions you want answered i can try my best :)
