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:

August goals

Goals are important to me, even if i dont always reach them or work towards them religiously, they are still things that guide me in life. If i have goals then i try to focus on them as much as i can and they can steer me in the right direction - if it's good goals anyway! And as it is August 1st, what better than to make a list of goals for the coming month :)

I suggest you do the same thing - make some goals for the month so that they can be in the back of your head and keep you motivated. Also... think about how much you can achieve in 30 days!! Alot can happen and change :)

My August 2015 goals:

  • Write my 'personal letter' for jobs which i will seek
  • Go to stores and seek jobs or apply online if that is the best option
  • Keep my room as tidy as possible (Though i usually say that my room portrays my mental state... if it is very messy it means that i am feeling low or stressed, but if its clean and tidy then i am in a good mood and feeling good. So i've told my mum that if my room is ever super messy, dont complain about it because that makes things worse. I am aware of the mess but sometimes i just dont have the mental energy to clean my room and i prefer to do that when i then feel better. Though sometimes you just need to do it, and know that you will feel better once it's done!! Because sometimes a messy room = feeling worse/more stressed)
  • Spend less money on food - important goal!
  • Go running a few times during the month (My running motivation is back so this shouldnt be a problem anyway!!) (also, not inclduing the two races this month)
  • Begin reading a book
  • Figure out what food(s) are causing my stomach pain.
  • Enjoy each day this month
  • Bake something
  • Redecorate my room
  • Paint my room


  1. For stomach pain I'd suggest first dairy, or gluten

  2. I saw this elimination diet plan where first for three weeks you exclude all the food you think are the problem. And then start to take them back one by one to discover with is the real causative agent. Might be worth a try.
