Life without Anorexia

My motto is
'Dont let the sadness of your past & the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present'

My life at the moment is completely different to how it once was. I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia and depression as well as struggling with self harm and overexercising. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
And since 2012 i have been declared healthy from my eating disorder.

I have been blogging for 7 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 now blog about recovery, my life, veganism and positivity!

If you have any questions leave them in the comment section as i am much quicker at answering there, otherwise you can always send an email: lifewithoutanorexia@hotmail.com

Body positivity - "summer/bikini bodies"


Now this is how you do a “beach body” ad

“Beach body” and “cellulite” are terms we rarely put together, but plus-size bathing suit company swimsuitsforall has essentially said “Screw that” with a new ad campaign called “Beach Body. Not Sorry.” The best part: The campaign features plus-size model Denise Bidot — and is going where others won’t.





As girls we grew up idolizing the women we saw in magazines, and hoping that maybe someday, when we finally grew up, we would look in the mirror and see that same beauty in ourselves.
Every summer we are exposed to the flawless pictures of Victoria’s Secret models. And every summer, we wonder why when that bathing suit arrives in the mail, we put it on and don’t feel flawless.
We decided to recreate our own swimsuit photo shoot on the beach in Malibu. We each chose a model and then tried to recreate her pose. We think it’s very important for women of all different shapes, sizes, and colors to rock these bathing suits and give an accurate depiction of what a beach body really is. So that’s what we did.

  1. Do some anorexia recovered people end up overweight? Like do they gain enough weigth, but keep on using food as a way to controll their lives, and maybe binge and become unhealthily overweight?
