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:

Q&A post!!

 I am a pretty open book and most questions have been answered, so for long time readers I am sure you are all thinking....'What is there she hasn't answered?'. 

I know i have alot of new readers recently, so maybe there is something you are wondering about? So feel free to ask me anything can be about myself, friends/family, my boyfriend, my life, school, 'have you evers', my opinion, topics, other questions etc

Ask away, if i find something too personal i won't answer, and if i have a good post about a certain topic i.e maybe you ask about bloating, or calories etc then i can give you the link :)

ALSO.. if you have emailed me with questions, its better to post those questions here, because at the moment it will take anything from 1-2 weeks until i have the time or energy to begin answering emails again.


  1. If the idea of inception - like in the movie - existed, and could be used to cure mental disorders, would you be pro or against this kind of psychological intervention ? if a child came to you asking for the key for happiness, what would be your first answer ? Last one, Damon or Stephan ? sorry, had to ask ^^ Cheers! - Carine.

  2. I was just wondering, do you ever get anxiety about the fact that you feel as though you are wasting your life? I get great anxiety because I am an introvert, so although I like being with others, I love being alone and reading etc, but my family are extroverts and I sometimes feel as though I am wasting my time as I am not constantly 'doing' something with others, even though I am enjoying myself? Also, how many close friends would you say you have? And how is your relationship with your mum and dad? xxx

    1. omg thought i was the only one with these feelings ! could you do a post izzy? maybe when you get time when the holidays begin :)

  3. Everyone are always talking about living life to the fullest, experiencing fantastic things during your life, like going to New York, parachute jumping, etc. etc. But why does that have to be the standard? Why can't I just live a laid back life that I know I will enjoy? It's bugging me SO so much that none of my friends get me on this! Gahhh

    1. I know (I'm the anonymous from before who asked about introverts etc), it's so annoying! I do want to do things, but I don't feel like I need to measure the happiness/success of my life by how many things I do/experience, as long as I'm happy, that's all I care about, and yet I feel like I SHOULD want to do these things!

  4. I have a question or rather a topic, i've been thinking about: how is being sick and in recovery different? meaning are you still officially "sick" when you're in recovery, because the behaviors often do not resemble the formal criteria. So can you be treated as a sick person or a rather "normal" one and which is better? Sure it depends on the stage, but how can you prove you mental stage of recovery to the relatives?

  5. I was wondering how you stopped counting calories and stopped following your plan?

  6. Is it true that eating 5 times a day is good for the metabolism?
    Is it true that you have to eat very lightly at night because the calories won't get burned while sleeping?
    What are the signs of reaching your set point?
    How long does it take the body to redistribute fat in recovery?

  7. I'm eating roughly what is advised for an average woman per day, and I have reached my recovered weight, however I am still this normal?

  8. how old are you?

    I have a huge problem-i can´t sit down! I´m terrified that i will gain weight even more rapidly than now.. So my question is-does the body know witch position it is in? I know this is a extremely wierd question but i dont know what to do any more... Every one just says "but you need to gain weight"- yes but im verry scared, cause i gain weight alredy quite rapidly... Thanks fore a GREAT blog anyways!!
