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:

Race day!!

After a night of running in my dreams and feeling the need to pee every 5 minutes i wake up and time to face reality, and actually run!! The nerves and excitment are REAL. As i type this i am shaking... whether its from caffeine, excitment or nerves im not sure... all 3 i guess :) I have gotten so many helpful tips and advice from my readers so thank you so much!!! That means alot to me and i have taken it all onboard! I am sure once i begin running the nerves will go away, it is always like this for me. Even when i am going to run like a 5km school run i get so nervous even though i know i can physically run it... its the mental side that suddenly starts doubting me!!

But i am happy, nervous and excited. Its grey weather so there might be a little sunshine but there is also a chance of rain (EDIT. At first i wrote, there is a also a chance of run.... XD Guess what is on my mind? There is a 99.9% chance of run!!!) which isnt as fun, but it's just to keep running and hopefully my mum, step dad and A will be there waiting for me when i cross the finish line :)

Now... warm up, stretch, continue eating rice cakes and small sips of water. The only problem when i am this nervous is that i feel like i need to pee every 5 minutes, hahaha.

I will write a post again as soon as i can :)
