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

Recent eats - and the unshown recent eats
Below are some of my recent eats over the past while - as i have been asked to share how my typical day of eating looks/what i eat in a day. But it varies so incredibly much at the moment. For example how i eat during my work days varies alot to how i eat when i am at home and also based on hunger, cravings, what i have at home etc
How often and how much i eat varies alot as well. But of course i have some type of plan to increase my intake of nuts, avocado, oils, potatoe, oats etc to help with an energy increase which my body needs! I love my vegetables so wont stop eating those, but adding vegan butter or oil to my veggies as well as decreasing the amount i eat of them and instead replacing with potatoes or bread is a much better thing to do for me at the moment, and i am already noticing a difference! But i am not going to write about that unless it is requested, but in general i just want to avoid the whole topic as it is most likely triggering and unnecessary here.
So instead, here are some of my recent eats and ALSO... the "unshown" recent eats. I find that many think they know how and what i eat from just a few pictures, but trust me... you dont, hahah. So over the past few weeks, when i have remembered i have taken photos of the food i eat which i havent planned to post - apart from in a post like this. .To show that you dont really know how i eat from just a few pictures, not that it really matters as what a person eats is so individual, but just so that you see that one picture doesnt show it all!
Lunch: Bread with fake meat, dairy free sauce, sweet corn and store bought vegetable fries and of course peanuts
Sweet potatoe and potatoe cubes made in the oven with salt and oil. Guacamole made from 1 avocado and store bought hummus as well as tomatoe sauce. (This x 2 was eaten at the time)
Dessert i had with my family a few days ago.
Breakfast i made yesterday - fruit salad consisting of 2 types of apples, 2 nectarines, 2 pears and 1 banana mixed together with the soy yoghurt, and then i also ate the 2 extra bananas and the avocado.
