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

Random facts about me
Bread is my weakness!! Despite eating enough carbs whenever I eat bread I have to eat like 5 slices. I love it - all types of bread apart from those square white slice breads but I don't mind eating white bread, just not those white sliced ones. The reason why I don't really bake or we buy bread is that I eat like half of it at once. ... not sure why as I know I eat enough carbs. I think it's a past thing though as bread has always been one of my biggest fear foods and I never let myself eat it for so long and it was always connected with guilt and I guess it still remains. Though I don't feel guilty, just that I want to eat it all!
I priortize races! When it comes to working out and such I don't mind if I have to skip a planned workout but when it comes to planned races such as the colour run, midnight run, half marathons etc those will be prioritised before other things and then the training before hand becomes more important. But it's the actual race days which are important to me as I love them so much!
I hate getting angry or thinking mean thoughts about others. I am also good at defending other people... even people i dont know. For example if my friends or family say something about a stranger such as a comment about their clothing or behaviour etc i begin defending the stranger. I hate when people are mean towards each other or comment mean things about people whether its strangers or not, so i feel the need to defend them.
I hate having presentations in school.... And i never practise my speeches. I write what im going to say, read it a few times, try to memorize it... say it once to time myself and then on the day i go for it and just improvise half of it as i try to not look at my notes, but i end up half forgetting what im going to say. But as long as i am confident in what i am speaking about then i can improvise and it usually goes well!!
