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: firstname.lastname@example.org

Clothing stores and mannequins
When I was out shopping the previous day I passed the store twilfit and I saw that in their adds they had normal sized women. I've seen the adds online before and I loved it but now when I saw them in the store it made me so happy!! I'm sure there is some type of photoshop used, but look at how beautiful the models look. So healthy and happy and gorgeous bodies!! Normal, healthy bodies.
Also H&M has begun using normal sized mannequins which is awesome! However from what i understand these mannequins are supposed to be plus size... (?) so that sends out the wrong message as they are NOT plus size.... though i am not fully sure whether they are suposed to be normal or plus size mannequins.
Of course these are just small steps, but it's the beginning towards change hopefully. Also how some counties have banned too skinny models on the catwalk and such as well as more companies using "the normal" sized models!I think there should be a representation of all body types, because there are natrally skinny people and they shouldn't be shamed just because they are skinny.
