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!

Reality check - things to remember

  • Reality Check: There will always be someone thinner than you, no matter how thin you are. Aiming to be the "thinnest" "sickest" "worst" is a pointless goal because you will never achieve it.
  • Reality Check: Eating at night/in the morning/after working out/before working out/at someone's house/in front of people/more than your sister/even if you just ate an hour ago/more than X times per day will NOT make you gain weight. Weight gain is about calories in vs. calories out, not about where/when/what/in from of whom you eat.
  • Reality Check: Fat is not bad. Fat is necessary in order to absorb calcium and many other nutrients. Fat is part of a balanced diet.
  • Reality Check: Sugar is not bad either. Sugar helps balance cravings. If you completely avoid sugar, your cravings will only get stronger. Eat sugar when you crave it to avoid binging on it.
  • Reality Check: What you see in the mirror is probably distorted. Instead of body checking, create affirmations for yourself. I am strong. I am brave. I am compassionate. I am loved.
  • Reality Check: People care about you. I can guarantee someone out there does. Someone loves you and cares about you and it's killing someone out there to see you hate yourself and hurt yourself. Even when you think you're completely and utterly alone, you're not. Because I care and if you ever need someone, I'm here.


  1. Don't agree with the point about sugar... When I don't eat sugar I get tid of my cravings (I do eat more food then in order to get the calories I would've gotten from the sugar-food). Nobody NEAD sugar (as in table sugar), I think a lot of people mistake "sugar" for carbs (glucose) found in starch rich foods and fruit/vegetables etc...

    1. Well no, sugar isnt exactly necessary but that doesnt mean you have to completely avoid it. Of course i do think that going for other options rather than sugar filled items can be a good idea, but sometimes eating that chocolate or a few cookies is exactly what your body needs and there is nothing wrong with that. People shouldnt be scared to eat sugar, though being sugar addicted isnt good either... but avoiding it like it is the devil isnt the most optimal either, not according to me anyway. But everyone has different opinions :)
