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:

I want your feedback

At the moment i feel a little lost with blogging.... and i would like to  know what YOU want to read more of. What do YOU want to see on this blog? It is helpful with constructive critisizm and feedback, it does help me alot!!

But also let me know if you have any topics or questions (i know i asked this a few days ago, and i am going to answer those questions now :)) But it would be great to know more about what you want to read about or what type of content you want me to post, or to not post!! I want to be able to keep improving my blog and there is no point writing or blogging about things which nobody really cares about... unless its a post which i feel that i need to or want to write about, then ill write it anyway and not really care if anyone reads it or not!

So let me know or give me some feedback, and if comments dont work - because sometimes they dont work for readers, then you can use my blogger contact form and email me your comment instead :)

And with that, i wish you all an awesome day and a great Tuesday!!! :)


  1. Hey!!
    I really like your blog and I believe it iz very helpful for someone under the process of recovery (like me) . I am mostly interested in the posts concerning your process of recovery, especially those about feelings and how to cope with them. For example I loved your post "How to cope with weight gain". It was relieving.
    So keep blogging!! You are doing more than you can imagine!!!
    THANK YOU!! :)

  2. I like your personal posts and food posts, they inspire me. and also maybe your workouts or exxercise i would like to read about. i like your blog as it is. x

  3. I really like the personal posts and food posts. I'm more interested in life after recovery and how to be 'normal'. I know what I need to do but it's nice to see normal portions and normal exercising amounts, etc. but I love what you write

  4. You have a wide range of readers and I think you are doing a lot of good to an extraordinary diversity of people.
    I don't really struggle with food any more, but your blog was one of the things that helped me. I still like it, and like to hear about your life, and see your continued work with others.
    I would still be interested in posts on exercise (which I do badly and much too little, but I know I would feel better if I could get it right).
    Also, perhaps, on stigma. I sometimes wonder if it is something that people experience in really very different ways depending on culture and background, as well as their own social group. And I wonder what one can do -- to help others, while still keeping safe oneself. I've come through lots of things and like so many others, I end up wondering how I can give back, but it's often hard to see what is actually going to help and what isn't. But you have written about this before and I would guess that there are people with more immediate questions of interest.

  5. I`ve been dipping in and out of your blog from the early years and its fascinating to see how it has clearly evolved from the early diary entries to the wealth of advice and information you give now. This is your blog about your journey, so maybe you would find it more fulfilling to write more about your life as it is post recovery? after all that is where you are now. I love your advice posts, both about recovery and when you include topics concerning post recovery. Maybe write posts based on what you`ve been learning or studying at uni - things about nutrition are useful to know both in recovery and afterwards. Posts about life topics after recovery would be great, and other things like
    recipes - your chia ones were great
    meal ideas - for inspiration, maybe we can pick up tips from each other
    what I ate - on a regular basis if you can manage it as it certainly gives me an idea what to aim for post recovery. it is good to see examples of normal portions and normal eating
    goals for the week - again on a regular basis that we can share with each other
    favourite foods - for inspiration
    As well as your personal thoughts and views about things, and about your day to day life.
    a couple of topic ideas -
    what is "gentle" exercise in recovery?
    what to do when you sleep a lot and it still leaves you exhausted?(in recovery)
    what happens when you reach your goal weight - do you come off your meal plan straight away, how do you eat "normally"?
    How do you modify your diet once you reach goal so you don`t continue to gain? ie without falling back into the trap of restricting?
    just a few thoughts and ideas! I think you are doing a great job with your blog though and look forward to reading it each day. you`ve got me through some pretty dark days and I would have been at a loss if it wasn't for your advice posts. you have been a real inspiration to me.

  6. PS - also love your Friday finds and your humourous pictures and captions! I don`t know where you find them but they`re great :)

  7. Body image please

  8. Could you write about how to deal with returning to an appearance that you hated before u got unwell & how to deal with it without relapsing

  9. I would be interested in posts on how to know when to increase your diet. Like how many weighins do u need before u up it again. Also what to do if you're hungry but you cant eat more cos ur putting enuf wgt on as it is. How to deal with flutuations in your weight. How to cope with sitting when return to wk/study and cant exercise. Meal ideas for those earlier on in recovery as well as for maintenance. Anxiety thats a huge one, i feel so much anxiety at the mo, its crippling and making me want to retreat cos i fear something bad might happen. Is it hunger or anxiety im feeling. How to deal with eating more/fear foods and the guilt and greed u feel. What do other people think when see u eat, your body changing. How to deal with embarrasment about eating. How to cope with losing your identity, who am
    I without ed. sorry lots of things just blurted out xx

  10. Id be interested in a step by step recovery for helping those who dont have a dietician or therapist how to get well on your own. Also how to let go of numbers on the scales as you put on weight. Fear and anxiety and body image. Id be interested in hearing how you overcame certain obstacles like markers, triggers etc. and dealing with a changing body. Oh and i love those fri sketches u do as they make me laugh.

  11. I like your personal posts best.

  12. Hi!

    I would be interested in a Q&A post, or a post about Veganism, becausea I always try to start it, but I am never success. I feel lost. Veganism helped a lot of people with eating disorders but it doesnt work for me if i go to school. (If I am at home I am okay with that) But I am always feeling sick, weak, headache every day, and a lot of times I am binging. I feel myself completaly terrible. But in th other hand, I can agree with the vegans and veganism and Freelee, but I dont know what am I doing wrong. I am eating exatly the same calories as before going vegan, and I am eating a lot of carbs as Freelee said, I dont know what to do.
    I am waiting for others answers to if they can help me.
    My other problem is that i dont know what to eat as a vegan. I am living in Hungary, what is not a rich country, and we dont have vegan or other healthy products, or just a few one, but anyways, we dont have enough options, or at least less then the american/australian, etc. vegans.And I tried to find recipes on the internet, but I havent found any recipes that contains the ingredients what we have at home/ at the grocery shop. Or these ingredients are too expensive for my wallett. (e.g.: Agave, Maple syrup or something)
    So anyways, a vegan/vegetarian recipe post would be helpful.
    And the reason why I mainly want to be vegan is that I want to eat ALOT! I have a medium metabolism (I can eat about 2200 cals a day, and I am a fourteen year old teenage girl, and I am doing sports 3-5 times a week) and I just want to be that girl, who can eat as much as she can, but doesnt gain any weight.
    (Sidenote: I went to a dietetican doctor a few weeks ago, and he said I need rougly 1600-1800 cals a day if I dont do any sports. And I got shocked. It would be restriction for me, and I try to eat at least 2000 cals on every day, if I am not doing any sports. And If I do, I eat 2100-2300. Or what do you think? Could/Should I eat more than this?)
    Anyways: I love your posts and blog as it is, but I would be really happy with those tipe of posts what i mentioned.

  13. I like your personal posts the most! Also posts on how to deal with/stop comparing your own bodies to others. Thank you! xxx

  14. What do you do if your meal plan says have x amount of food and you still want more? is this appetite returning or should you control it and stick to whats on your plan? I ask because mostly when I start I meal I am not at all hungry and to be honest that bothered about eating it but I do because its on my plan. Then half way through I find I`m enjoying it and don`t want it to end! This is bizzare and I don`t know why its happening?
