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:

Monday 31st August

It's Monday 31st of August and most people are starting university today, or going back to school/work. Or most of my friends are starting university today.... and I am just like "ok, have fun. Learn alot and get smart" and secretly wishing i was in their place. But like the reminder i posted yesterday, "Dont compare your life with others. Everything happens for a reason and where I am in life now, is where i am supposed to be. Things take time, and I am not behind others. Everyone has different paths in life, and this is mine".

It is a good reminder for me to have at the moment, so that i dont end up feeling lost or stressed out because I am not where i want to be in life.

This week I am going to focus on making a positive and happy week. I have an appointment at Mando on Wednesday - first time there in a year. And i am both excited and a little nervous over going back. So much has changed in this past year which is exciting but when you are there you get asked 101 questions, you get analyzed when you are eating. I will have to use the mandometer to eat lunch, though i wont see how many gram/procent i put on the plate, as the goal is to eat roughly 280g of food (not including vegetables) which is basically a normal portion. I am pretty sure i wont fail on that, haahah. There are always so many papers to fill, questions to answer and it always makes me super tired after a while. But atleast i just go there once a year, i was once stuck there for 6 weeks without getting time out, so i am definitely not complaining. :)

This week will be focusing on enough sleep, dressing for the weather (i.e it might be time to accept the fact that shorts and crop tops have to go back into the summer closet) and decreasing caffeine intake. And also limiting my expenses on food.... only 10days until i leave and every penny counts. hahaha. I also need to get around to taking CV photos then i'll see whether i apply for jobs before or after i leave... i dont want to miss a call just because i am on holiday, but things will sort themselves out :)

I hope you all have a great week :) Do you have any goals for this week? :)
