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:

Mindful eating infographic

I was asked about true hunger and i thought i would post this infographic about mindful eating, and then answer the actual question with my own tips and advice in another post. But i thought this inforgraphic was rather good.

Though it it us to you about how "mindful" you actually want to be, because sometimes in recovery its better to not be so mindful and to just eat... not be acutely aware of every bite you take and obsessively taking 30 chews each bite and taking an hour to finish a small meal. Mindful eating is usually a good thing to try to do if you struggle with binge eating or over eating, then it can be good to not get super distraced while eating but also to try to eat with others and have things to do after the meals.

But my advice regarding "true hunger" and mindless hunger will be posted a little later today or sometime Friday-Sunday :) Hopefully, anyway!
