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!

If you have any questions leave them in the comment section as i am much quicker at answering there, otherwise you can always send an email: lifewithoutanorexia@hotmail.com

A day of socialising and eating

Hello :)
8.30pm and the first time I have to update my blog. But that's life and it's kind of nice as well, to just live life. My day started very early as I was going to breakfast with my sister at a hotel. I had a gift card where I could go 2 for 1 at a hotel and I thought it would be fun to go with my sister. So as the breakfast was from 7.30-11 we decided to meet at 9.30 so we would have some time to eat!
It was my first time eating breakfast /brunch there but it was a really nice place with really good food, especially the scrambled eggs!!











Once we were done and filled up with delicious food we took a shopping round where I bought myself a birthday or new years outfit. Not sure which event I will use it for but I loved the jumpsuit! 


That crazy hair when i dont have time for long hair XD




Then after a while of browsing shops my sister decided to head home and get some rest and she is still half sick and as I had plans to meet friends I sat at a cafe with a coffee and a yoghurt and nut mix and then worked through some emails. It's been a long time since I've answered emails so I felt it was time to answer a few anyway. So I worked my way through some emails before I met up with 2 of my friends and we went to a cafe and I decided to eat a late lunch /early dinner while we sat and talked for a few hours. Though I felt that after an hour I completely zoned out. I couldn't focus at all and what they said just sounded like buzzing so I had to excuse myself to the bathroom to take some time to just get back into focus. I felt how my energy had been drained and I just felt tired but I went back out with a smile and was able to continue socialising before we headed our separate ways and I met my sister again to go see Mockingjay part 2! And of course cinema snacks are a must so some chocolate covered nuts, 2 types of chocolate for my sister and she also bought some type of "cinema snack/chip" that we shared. What did I think of the movie? I thought it was very good though not one of those "ph my gosh amazing" movies but it was a good way to end the films and there was alot that happened all the time! Have any of you seen the movie? What did you think?  :)





Was tempted to buy donuts even if i wasnt craving one, but just to say that  have bought and tried a Dunkin Donuts... but ill buy one when i am craving one so it can be enjoyed :)




And then after the movie we walked a few stations and then headed home which is where I currently am.... and oh my what a long day XD not used to so much in one day and has definitely taken some of my energy but it has also been a good day. I knew that if I had headed home after the shopping round I wouldn't have wanted to leave again so it was good that I just sat at a cafe to work. Tomorrow it's crossfit then some maths studying and then an evening to myself at home which is very much needed!!

I hope you have had a lovely Saturday :) Realised that this also became a type of food diary, hahah you get to see everything I have eaten today.  Though I don't need to write out amounts I ate of the cinema snacks as that isn't relevant!  XD

  2. Ooh I'm so happy to hear that you had fun and enjoyed that day :) oh man I really want to meet you one day, you seem so nice and positive! And btw a little tiny question: if you are in a bad mood are you then also mean to other people? I always am, but I really don't want to, it's like my mouth isn't doing what my brain wants... Do you have tips for overcoming that? Keep going and smiling xo

    1. Naaw haha :) I like to be known as the happy and positive person as that is the true me :) i amnt in a bad mood so oftem but when I'm low or feeling distant I am mostly silent and can sort of fade off into my own thoughts but not mean. I don't have so much advice about this subject but if you know it happens it might be easier to control it. Or take a few moments away and control yourself,not just speak what you are thinking. But also maybe ask yourself why you are in a bad mood and what you can do about that? Maybe take some time to rest or eat a snack or just some you time? Not the best advice but it's just about not projecting your negativity or taking your anger out on others and inside release your anger/ bad mood in other ways (and not at yourself! )

    1. I have lost a bit of weight (i dont weigh myself but was weighed at the CF clinic) and i am trying my best to eat as much as i can, but like i wrote in a previous post, as long as i dont become underweight it is not the end of the world, but of course i know that physically my body functions best wtih a little more weight, but weight gain isnt my only focus as i am still a healthy weight and my body still functions fine as well as not having ED thoughts or being triggered by the weightloss.
