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!

The christmas tag

So i saw on Kendel's blog ( that she had done a Christmas tag and I thought I would join in and do it as well :)

If you want to join in on your blog comment below and let me know so I an read your posts :)

1. What is your favourite Christmas film?

I think elf or the grinch. Stereotypical Christmas films but I love them :) infact I want to watch those films now!  And on a side note, I call my boyfriend the grinch as he has so little Christmas spirit, hahah. I think I have to decorate his apartment to give him  some Christmas spirit!!

2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?

In Sweden we celebrate on the 24th so after a late Christmas lunch,then the typical "kalle anka" tradition we then open present at around 5pm and then we hand out one present at a time and the person giving out the present had written a rhyme about the present which the person receiving the gift tries to guess what it is. So that whole process takes 1-2 hours depending how many people we are!! It's fun but after an hour it gets a little long and boring, haha.

3. Do you like to stay in your PJs on Christmas Day or dress up?

Definitely dress up. Day to day I am very basic and don't dress up, so whenever I get a chance I put on heels, straighten my hair and wear a nice outfit! ! I love it :)

4. If you could only buy one person a present this year, who would it be?

I think my mum :) ive already bought a present for everyone apart from my boyfriend (any tips on what to buy your boyfriend for Christmas?). It's easiest to buy for my sister, she isn't exactly silent about the things she wants or needs. But as my mum does so much for me I would choose to just buy her something very special instead. :)

5. Have you ever built a gingerbread house?

Yes a few times I think! They have never turned out so good, and I don't actually like gingerbread.  I only like the ginger bread biscuits which are very thin, but the stuff used to make gingerbread houses doesn't taste so good.

6. What do you like to do on your Christmas break?

Go for runs, workout, bake, eat, watch films, rest!! Though there isn't so much Christmas break now a days. Hahah. The cons of not studying and not working, it's like everyday is a break... or as some would say, jobless.

7. Any Christmas wishes?

To be happy and enjoy myself... and well secretly hoping that my family can go together and buy me a new computer, or get mine fixed. ... :/:/ not going so well without a computer.

8. Favourite Christmas food?

All of it. Seriously.  The rice pudding,  Saffron buns, bread, salmon, chicken, eggs, sweet almonds (brända mandlar! ), herring, vegetarian meatballs, baileys..... yumm! The only thing I don't really like is boiled potatoes which is a typical Christmas food. But if I can get my family (or I I will do it myself ) roast potatoes/wedges then it will be perfect! !!

Also I got asked via email regarding Christmas food in different countries, so comment below the Christmas food in your country :) :)

9. Candy cane or gingerbread man?

None, unless it's "Annas pepparkakor" (insert picture if I had a computer :/)

10. What is at the top of your Christmas list?

A computer ;);) otherwise just happiness, maybe money but I don't like asking for things. Otherwise I mean sports clothes, socks, nice plates/cups etx are things which are always appreciated! :)

It's December 4th and getting into the Christmas spirit? Anyone else?

And like mentioned above, if you want to join in just comment below :)


  1. Do you eat sauerkraut on Christmas time in Sweden? For me it is a must, there is no christmas without a sauerkraut:D

  2. Christmas dinner in England -
    roast turkey, roast potatoes, roast parsnips, mashed potato, carrots, Brussels sprouts, peas, pigs in blankets(sausages wrapped in bacon), chesnut stuffing, cranberry sauce and gravy.
    Dessert - Christmas pudding with brandy butter or double cream

    Boxing day dinner - chips, cold turkey, bubble and squeak, pickles, coleslaw
    dessert - trifle or Christmas cake or mince pies with custard or cream

    And then of course if theres still any turkey left over its used in a curry for the following day!
