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:

Recovery motivation and reminders

"One day I’ll wake up and be glad I did" - Source

"You are fierce. You’re a survivor.
You’re a fighter through and through.
Little brave, breathe.
There is a warrior within you."

— Beau Taplin 

"And one day I realised that it’s more important to be myself than to be thin."

— (via opalescent-souls)

"it doesn’t matter that my thighs are thicker
so is my hair
no one cares that my stomach wobbles
I can stand strong
now my happiness shows
instead of my bones
my eyes aren’t wet with tears
my skin’s no longer dry and tight
yeah maybe my hips are wider
but so is my smile
my body is full of food
my eyes are full of life
I’m finally living
and it is beautiful"

— recovery looks good on me and I’m not going to let anything take that away (via metamorphosisofmeg)

“ both your mental and physical health are more important than any school work. you are your priority, not your education.
“🐱 I was in need of some positive vibes and this made me smile
I hope everyone is having a good day and if not I hope this kitty will make you smile too ❤️
