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!

The mind is powerful - your thoughts control you

I know you might have been told countless times before to "Just change your thoughts" or "Just think positive"... i mean that is what i write in my blog posts on a regular basis. But that is because it HELPS, it makes a difference to your life, to your current situation, to the way you think and react. Of course it isnt easy to change your thoughts or to get your thoughts to be positive when you have been stuck in a routine and habit of a certain way of thinking. But it is possible to change.

Think.. all that determination you put on the destructive and negative thoughts, you could use that for positive and constructive thoughts. Those thoughts that convince you to get up at 5am each morning to workout - despite you not wanting to, but there is a sort of determination and habit - could be changed to being determined to sleep in and giving your body the rest it needs. Your mindset and thought pattern can always change and be one that is helpful to you and not destructive, but then you also have to actively try to think differently, convince your mind that you can.

And this goes for recovery, or all things.... sometimes your mind tells you that you cant, but then you have to convince yourself that you can and believe it.

For example if you have a presentation infront of your class and your mind tells you that you can't, you are a failure and it won't go well. Instead convince yourself that you can, that you are capable and everything will go fine, and then the chances are that it actually will!!

The mind is powerful and your thoughts control you.

And i was reminded of that again today when i was convinced that i was too tired... i couldnt go to school or go workout, but then i decided to change my thoughts. Convince myself that i could, that i had energy and that i was capable of leaving the house and so i did, and have had a great day. Or well, it was great because i didnt want to go to school or work until i convinced myself that i could and would. And i definitely didnt think i would workout after school,  but i convinced myself that i could and that i would feel awesome afterwards... and i did! And that is what made the day great, that i changed my thoughts from negative ones to positive ones and proved myself wrong!!

Change your thoughts and change your life!!


  1. Can you write a food diary/what i ate? can you make it a weekly thing, it always inspires me and encourages me to eat more.

    1. I've done that now :) but not sure if I will make it a weekly thing or not.
