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!

Remember the kind things about yourself

It's funny how quickly your view about yourself and your body image can change. From one moment thinking you look great and feeling awesome to seconds later you see every flaw you have, everything that you consider to be wrong with yourself. Caught up in the negative thoughts.
This is what happened to me today and I began wondering why did my view about myself and my appearance change so quickly? And I couldn't really answer that,  but it felt strange how all the positive thoughts about myself could disappear so quickly. And it was then I told myself to remind myself of those positive thoughts.  Don't get caught up in the negative thoughts which can so easily control you. It was then I realised that it can be a good idea to write down the positive thoughts about yourself that you have, or the compliments you have received from others.  Because then you can look back at that and remind yourself that the negative thoughts are false. ... They might be due to tiredness,stress,hunger, anxiety.... but they are not true.
So the next time you feel good about yourself,write it down... maybe in your mobile so you have easy access to the compliment. Take a selfie and remember the moment.  Write down compliments you get and keep them as reminders for when you need them.

We all have down days and days where we feel less great, but it's during those days we need to remind ourselves how awesome we are! And remember,  compliments and positivity don't just have to be appearance based. Instead think of the positives about yourself, your personality etc
