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

8 days until graduation
Sunday evening and it's now that it is kicking in that i have no more work to do for high school!!
I can infact relax, rest and destress!! I can breathe and rest mentally! It feels amazing and exactly what i need.
However it is going to be a completely new journey after my graduation... Its crazy to think about those who have followed my blog since 2010 or even 2012... how much i have grown and changed. How much i guess YOU have changed as well. Many readers have read my blog and along the way recovered and living their lives and journeys and it's so fun to hear about it! Especially if you are someone who has had regular contact with me for a period and then to write again a few months or even a year or two later and tell me what you have been through and what you have overcome, its pretty amazing!I mean i write about my life on here... document my life and all these milestones! Its pretty amazing.. that is one thing that i love about blogging because i can go back and choose a random day and read about what i did and how i felt. Look at pictures and remember small things i have forgotten. But it also reminds me of what i have been through and how far i have come!!! It makes me so happy.
Each day i grow and change. Each year is 365 days of growth and change!
Life is pretty amazing when you think about it... how each day you have new chances and opportunities. A chance to change things, make things better or go on adventures or learn from your mistakes!
Life has its ups and downs for everybody. Some people have more lows, some people have more highs... but thats life and you have to keep going anyway and know it will get better!
It got better for me, even if it took years of struggle and hard times.
I can now smile, be happy and love life as well as love myself which is important in life!!
Just some evening thoughts and below are some of the photos we took today!
More will be posted the day of my graduation!
P.s do you like my choice of poses/area of photography? I thought that being photo'd in an outside gym was the perfect area for me! Because it shows the true me... even in heels and a white dress i get down on the floor and do some push ups or do a bit of running, hahah!!
(The white dress and white cap are traditional graduation things.... as well as the champagne;);))
