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!

Taking the first step

The first step may be the smallest, shakiest, the most nerve filled and uncertain but it is the most essential. Your first step will never be smooth. It is the only action that will set you on track for good things. Take your uneasy step and watch your world unravel before you.
First steps are shaky but it is worth it by Amy Kennedy

I can say from experience that the first step... the first step into the unknown and out of your comfort zone is always tough. You dont know what to expect... or you have loads of expectations which turn out to be wrong. It is not always easy but it is worth it. Either things go right or they go wrong and you learn from your mistakes, but you must not be scared of taking the first step. You never know whats on the other side or what you are missing out on if you dont try. Sometimes you just have to close your eyes and dare . Dare to make a change even if its tough and scary, that change can lead to lots of great things.. or  things you learn and grow from, but that is part of life.

Sometimes you dont need to be ready for the chage... you just need to make the chage!


  1. Hi i need to put on weight by july to go bk to college. I dont know how to stay focussed to ensure i meet my target when im so scared to eat & gain weight & see numbers go up.

  2. Believe me it gets easier to eat the more you do it. I never thought I would say this as I really struggled to start with but the more you get into the routine and habit of eating it does get better.You even begin to get hunger ques because your body gets used to having food at certain times.
    I still get days where I could quite easily miss a meal but I`m making a determined effort not to as I`ve had quite a few stop starts with recovery for various reasons. Again if you make that determined effort to eat it gets easier. Believe in your self and just keep fighting. As you gain weight your thoughts will change, for me weight gain became less scary because I could see the improvements me eating was having on my body - and it all became worth it.
    Take each day as it comes and stay strong. you can do it!
