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

Make today a "love yourself day"

As mentioned before, I'm not so much for Valentine's day... maybe because I'm not much of a romantic and valentines has never been a day that has made me feel bad when I was single. Instead, I saw valentines as more of a show myself some love (and of course show a little extra love and appreciation for my family and friends). But I think that you should make today a love yourself day.
Do things you enioy today. Eat your favourite food or meals. Do what YOU want to do and enjoy (or make time for something fun if you have other plans or need to work/study today). Take some time for yourself and compliment yourself, maybe buy yourself something nice or do something nice for yourself. Treat yourself like you would treat your best friend, be kind to yourself. Of course if you have a partner, do something nice together... show a little extra appreciation for them, but don't forget about the love for yourself either. Loving yourself is important as well :)

For me today, I'm going to workout which is something I love and then this evening I might buy myself some delicious food and make myself a nice dinner/evening snack and try to finish my studying by 7 and then Skype with my best friend in Ireland and watch some series, and try to sleep early!! Not anything different from usual days, but try feel more positive and loving about myself!!! And then start the new week in a great way!

So love yourself and others today!!!

How are you going to spend today? Any plans?  :)

  1. My mom bought me a bunch of fancy teas as a Valentine's Gift :) I don't have a boyfriend....so I find the day kind of pointless, but I'll make it a "love myself" day <3 I made waffles for brunch for my family. They were super yummy!!
