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!

After the rain comes the sun

Wednesday morning and it is pouring down with rain, and not just a little... but alot. Also the wind is blowing like crazy... so my idea about having good hair today is pretty much off the list.

Even though the weather is grey and dreary and makes me feel unmotivated to do anything i made myself a delicious breakfast this morning consisting of yoghurt, muslie, nuts, raspberries and some scones! A delicious breakfast! :)

  I also realised yesterday, right before going to bed that i would have to write my 24 hour food diary, over what i ate (yesterday) and this morning. And i honestly could not remember everything i had eaten, hahha.... i mean i dont think about it so much. I eat when im hungry, then i stop when i am full and i move on... eat the next time i am hungry again whether that is 2 hours or 6 hours later. So i lay in bed trying to remember what i had eaten, when and roughly how much. The positive thing though is that if i was acutely aware of what i ate and how much then i dont know if that would be the best sign, because part of an eating disorder is letting go of the food control. Not having to remember everything you eat, not having to write down or calculate every mouthful of food. But it also shouldnt be to the extreme where you eat so much that you cant even remember it all i.e meaning binges, or that it goes so many hours between your meals that you dont remember what you ate previously etc

Anyway, i need to continue eating my breakfast and then get ready, so going to end this post here :) Soon its off to Mando... so many mixed feelings, but i know its going to go well :)
