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

Praise your small achievements and progress in recovery

I think it is so important for you who suffer from mental illness to be proud of the small things. Because even
if it may not seem like a big thing to anyone else, sometimes you need to feel proud of yourself just because 
you left the house or you managed to do something that scared you or you managed to not do something
that was a compulsive behaviour. Small changes make a big difference in the long term and if you can learn
to be proud of those small changes it will help you alot!! I mean just being proud that you smiled and allowed 
yourself to be happy, or proud that you followed your meal plan or proud that you could go for a walk and enjoy
the sunshine and fresh air and stop and take photos instead of powerwalking through the forest and hating it
because you are walking to compensate.

Small achievements and progress forward is better than no achievements or progress forward!!

  1. Agreed! It's all about progress, not perfection. Every step in the right direction, no matter how small, is a step toward freedom. Celebrate the progress, the baby steps AND the giant leaps. Recovery is often a long journey made of a million baby steps. Each one is important, as long as you are stepping in the right direction. This is a motto that I live by today. PROGRESS NOT PERFECTION.
