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:

First day in Lisbon

Good morning everyone  :)

Waking up to the sound of trucks and beeping after a noisy night with people screaming and shouting for most of it. But it wasnt so bad as i was so tired after yesterdays travelling!

It took 4 hours on the plane which were bareable, just about. The seats were tiny with very little legroom, but that was ok.... until the people infront of me and my aunt decided to lean back there chairs for the 3 hours. No legroom at all and i was almost too tall for the seats so now have neck pain. But thats part of travelling and it could be worse.

Then when we arrived and picked up our bags mine was leaking and i thought.... my perfume has broken. My new, barely used, expensive perfume and i felt irritataed. But when we got to the hotel i saw that it wasnt my perfume and infact just a drink. Hhahaah.

During the taxi ride to the hotel we got a little tour of Lisbon, we saw the "good" and the "bad" and the trafffic was crazy. Not to mention that there had been an accident as well.

After we got to the hotel, checked in, left our bags and cooled down for a moment or two we ended up walking around for 30-40 minutes trying to find some place to eat and finally ended up going to the place right below the hotel XD Which served delicious food. Fried sweet potatoes with pesto and salmon and avocado mix eith bread for me. And then shrimp with potatoe and lemon for my aunt.

After that the tiredness was taking over and it was just to make our way back to our room and go to bed. But first some chocolate for dessert ;);) They were both SOOOO good. I cant decide whether i like Milka or Marabou best!

Today we are going to wander around, maybe go to a museum and just sort see where we end up!

Below are lots of photos from yesterdays travel.
