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:

6am vanilla coffee and oats

Good morning!
It's currently 6.20 am when I am writing this post but I have been awake since 5.40am.  I was definitely worried that I wouldn't wake up in time and that I would turn off my alarms  but it took me just 2 alarms to wake up (and I set 5!) I even asked my sister to make sure I was awake when she gets up - 6.45am.

I'm not feeling tired this morning but I'm not feeling excited either... I'm more nervous and a little worried but it's just nervousness about what is going to happen,  whether everyone will be smarter than me etc  hopefully once everything starts ill be fine.

Usually I'm not up this early (luxery i know) so my stomach isn't calling for food, but breakfast is important anyway so a big cup of vanilla coffee and chocolate egg white oats topped with quark, nuts and raisins (feels like going back to old usual school breakfasts. But that is because oatmeal is filling and gives you energy for several hours so a great breakfast!). Hopefully it will give me lots of mental energy, hahah... but i am feeling rather awake even without the caffeine!

After school i might meet my boyfriend for a late lunch, depending on how I am feeling. Whether i just need to be alone or not! For now, I am going to try to answer some of your questions :) And also, please be patient with emails... i'll try get around to them sometime. :)

I hope you all have a good day! Dont forget to focus on the positives and try to have the right mindset. Remember that the tough times makes you stronger, you just need to get through them!


  1. Hope your first day back goes well for you - good luck! let us know how it all went won`t you?

  2. Your phones formatting is cute! It’s so different than mine, which is weird. Anyway, have a great first day!
