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!

What being healthy (from an eating disorder) means

What being healthy acutally means:
- Not freaking out over a piece of cake/chocolate/dessert
- Knowing that even eating Mc Donalds/Pizza or other “unhealthy” foods every once in a while won’t make you gain weight.
- Accepting the way your body looks and feels like.
- Not being scared of fruit because of the sugar in it.
- Being able to go and have dinner with friends without freaking over the calories in a burger.
- Not hating yourself when you overeat.
- Looking forward. Nto backwards.
- Not having food on your mind 24/7.
- If your jeans are getting too tight you just shrug it off and buy a new fabulous pair.
- Accepting that your body will change.
- Thinking back to memories with loved ones instead of memories about your weight.

  1. nice post :)

    Something just came into my mind...
    I used to hate when people during my recovery said things like 'it won't make you gain weight' for a certain food because weight gain was actually needed. I dont consider those things a lie but it was just a dumb thing to say. It was like indirectly saying I dont need to gain weight while I was actually severy underweight o.O

    1. Hmm, i understand what you mean but i think that is just your thoughts messing up the comment. Because in all honesty, a food doesnt make you gain weight. Too much of any type of food makes anyone gain weight... but eating a certain type of food wont make you gain weight, and that is what the people are trying to tell you. Not that you dont need to gain weight but that eating that certain food wont make you gain weight. Though it might be a dumb thing to say, but i often write things like that as well :)
