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:

Recovery blogs

Olivia: She writes alot of helpful posts as well as personal posts which i love!
On my blog I share advice on eating disorder recovery based on my own experience and my knowledge. I have suffered from EDNOS for one and a half years, today I am fully recovered.  I am very passionate about eating disorder awareness and helping those who are struggling with the same issues as I once did. I also write about my daily life, a girl living in california, a life free of an eating disorder. 


Hi my name is Livvy I am 15 years old and live in lovely little New Zealand!
My blog is named Love Is Stronger Than The Pressure To Be Perfect as it is completely true! I was diagnosed with GAD (general anxiety disorder) a while ago now which as a result ended up developing a ED having a lot of trouble with food along the road. Love is stronger is my recovery blog as I fight to be fully recovered which is my deepest wish at the moment. I post about my daily life, life in New Zealand, recovery information, motivation posts, recipes and much more!! My blog is my little happy place and I would love to share it with you all :D

My blog: Love is stronger than the pressure to be perfect


Here is a little information about me.  I'm 25 years old from North Wales, UK, and have had anorexia for about the last eleven years.  I have literally just been discharged from hospital, again, so I'm tottering around the first tentative steps of recovery, again.  It's more than a struggle, life is really very difficult at the moment, and my blog documents the struggle that it is to be in recovery from anorexia.  (Can be a slightly triggering blog)


She writes about her road towards a healthy life after struggling with anorexia which has now developed into orthorexia. She writes about her ups and downs and her life at the moment, fighting free from her eating disorder. (Blog is in swedish) 


I was diagnosed with Anorexia almost three years ago and have been battling it ever since. On my blog I share different experiences that I have had when I was really sick, as well as the progress I am now making as I try to recover. Since creating my blog I have never felt more motivated to recover and I hope that through writing about my recovery, I will be able to inspire people with eating disorders to fight for a happier and healthier life as we


My blog has been there with me, ever since I embarked upon this long and difficult journey which is recovery. For me, my blog is a place of reflection and memories; where I can record my recovery journey and share my experiences with the world. It is also a place where I can connect with those who have been touched by, have suffered, or who are suffering with an eating disorder or any other mental illness.  Though I am not fully recovered and still have a good way to go on this journey to health and freedom, I feel that I do have something to offer to the world. I have advice to give and experiences to share; and I hope that by reaching out and offering my help and support to those who are struggling, I will be able to make a difference in the world and join in the ongoing battle to destroy eating disorders forever.


My blog is my little space on the internet where I discuss the 'journey through my life'. After suffering from Anorexia for 2 years I decided to go for recovery, and my blog documents the later stages of my recovery and me transitioning into leading a more "normal" life! I provide help and support for anyone who may be struggling and also open up about some of the battles I've previously been through. Thankyou for taking the time to read! :)


My name is Veronike, I am 24 years old and in my fourth year of Medicine. I had severe depression since the age of 15 which was later in my life only diagnosed as bipolar disorder type 2. I've had to fight this battle my whole life and my life repeatedly got interrupted because of relapses and episodes that got me hospitalized. I came close to ending my life several times until last year I finally got the help I needed and proper medication to manage my bipolar disorder and OCD. I have felt judged and stigmatized my whole life as "crazy" or "weak" and I realized so many other people with mental illness go through the same thing and mental illness is extremely debilitating. I have gotten really passionate about creating more awareness and speaking out about mental illness without shame. 

My blog shares personal things about my life and thoughts, discussions and support on mental illness, information on what exactly certain illnesses encompass and advice on getting through depression or bipolar disorder. I am still quite new at blogging and only really started committing to it this year so I'm hoping to grow more through it and not just share advice but also remind and learn more myself of what it takes to keep going.

I believe the recovery community can be a great place - if you make it positiive, if people support you or even recieveing a nice comment can really make someones day! So lets all be positive towards one another :) Blogging is something i loveand if i can help others feel more motivated to write when they know someone is reading, then that is just fun :)
