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: email@example.com

Myth no.1 - When I am skinny, I will like my body:
When you accept your body for all its wonderful quirks and imperfections, you will like your body.
Myth no.2 - Losing weight will make me happy:
Following your dreams, surrounding yourself with people you love and appreciate and forgiving yourself and others will make you happy.
Myth no.3 - A healthy lifestyle means working out every day and never eating bad food:
No food is bad, and a healthy lifestyle is doing what's good for your heart as well as what's good for your body. Even if that means lying in bed all day and eating chocolate sometimes.
Myth no.4 - All thin girls love their bodies:
Every person, no matter what they look like, has their insecurities. Embrace your own, and know that you are not alone.
Myth no.5 If I eat x, y or z and follow x, y or z celebrity's workout regime I will look like them:
No. No matter how you eat or how long you spend in the gym, you will look like you at whatever weight you are at. You can't replicate another human being's body in your own.
Myth no.6 - It's always unhealthy to have a bmi above 25:
BMI scales were invented for the convenience of insurance companies, not as an accurate measure of health. Your healthy weight is determined by your body type, composition, lifestyle and diet, not by a made up chart.
Myth no.7 - If I was smaller, I could wear a bikini and short shorts and strapless dresses:
You can wear whatever you like, whether you wear it in a size 0 or a size 14. Your beauty is not defined by the clothes you wear.
Myth no.9 - I can solve my problems using my body:
You have to look deeper - your problems do not stem from the circumference of your thighs or the amount of fat on your stomach. They are deeper than that, and the solution lies deeper than that as well.
