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: firstname.lastname@example.org

10 important self reminders
1) I choose me. It’s okay to put myself first when I need to.
2)I am more than any one part of myself. My appearance, my past, my mistakes – none of that defines me. Only I do.
3)It is not weakness to show vulnerability; it is strength.
4)It’s okay to not be okay. Furthermore, if I’m not okay now, I will be eventually.
5)Whether I’m not sure of the answers to my homework, what to do, or who I am, it’s alright to not know. I’m still learning and I’m doing just fine.
6)Making mistakes is a part of the learning process. I don’t have to be afraid of making them or of admitting when I do.
7)I’ll never know what I’m capable of until I try.
8)There is no such thing as perfect. Trying is enough.
9)Take pleasure in the little things: sunsets, rain, fuzzy blankets, signs of spring, etc. They are important.
10)I am not in this alone, even if it sometimes feels that way.
