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:

Saturday - family visit and a class dinner

Good morning!!

Today i am starting the day on a positive note after a not so great yesterday..... I could write out everything, which i did do... but then i realised that its not really necessary! Instead i am focusing on the positive and a new day!!

I started my morning with a run/walk, its very icy and there are lots of "holes" in the snow so its easy to end up spraining or breaking an ankle so definitely no speed training, haha. But its nice to just get out into the fresh air and to move my body! And then when i got home again i saw i had a message from my mum saying that she was going to come visit me today, and that was not expected or planned but it actually made me super happy. I do miss my family slightly, but its not something i really think about and i like living on my own but my family is still my family, and it made me happy when they said they were coming to visit me today!! So i am looking forward to that, and hopefully they bring Daisy with them :)

And then this evening i have a class dinner where there will be drinks and shots and food, and the theme is James Bond!! I am not super excited for the dinner but i hope i have a good time anyway!! :)

For now i am going to drink some coffee and try getting some blogging done before i head into town!!


  1. I really hope you enjoy the dinner and make some uni-friends. Like you, I am content with my own company and a bit reclusive, and it's easy to just stay like that. But I know that things are always better if one does have friends around. It makes everything lighter and brighter, and adds zest and fun. Good luck, and enjoy, x.

  2. its nice when you get surprise visits like that, I hope you have a nice day!
    Do you have to dress up for the dinner? sounds like fun!
