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:

Eating and living - A recipe book for eating disorder recovery – by those who have been there

I was contacted by Francesca Baker a few months ago and she told me about a recipe book she was creating where the purpose was to help those struggling with an eating disorder to share recipes and to promote the message of balance. And that no food is good or bad. This book can help you with recipe ideas and also gives balanced meal ideas which are helpful while in recovery. The money raised from the book sale will also go to the charity B-EAT. So if you are interested you can check out the book HERE:

I have seen a sample of the book and i can say it looks very helpful and can be a great resource with some great recipes!!
