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!

Answering questions about veganism

This video was meant to be uploaded on Monday, but well... studying and life and stomach pain got the bettter of me so its being uploaded now instead :) I dont like hearing my own voice on video so i havent really watched the whole video myself (as usual... and most likely a mistake!), so i can barely remember what i said, but oh well... hahaha!!

I will be answering the rest of the questions in other videos or posts :)


*Note... i watched part of the video and i say "ehhmm" 100+ times... i apologize for that, and next time i will be more prepared and make sure to not say "ehhmm", hahaha. This video was just made quickly when the woman i live with wasnt at home!!

  2. What is your opinion of waiting till your out of the house and in school to go vegan because my parents don't like the idea of me being vegan now but they won't mind when I'm out and making my own decisions.

    1. I'm not Izzy....but maybe I can offer some advice, as I am in the same situation right now!

      I just started my first year of university at the beginning of the month. I'm living in residence, with the ability to cook all my own food. Over the summer, I hinted my desire to become a vegetarian to my family. They were not entirely supportive of my decision. They occasionally tried to force me to eat meat, and couldn't understand WHY I would choose to limit my intake of animal derived products.
      However, now I have complete control over what I put in my body. My roommates are curious, rather than judgmental. I'm slowly transitioning to veganism....hopefully by January 2017! That's my goal at least.
      So I would definitely recommend waiting it out....I know it's tough, but not everyone can understand the mentality of a vegan.
      Hope this helps a bit!

  3. Your worries about your appearance/voice/whatever on camera aren't necessary at all girl! You seem so nice :)
    I really like your videos and being a vegan myself for about 9 months now it's even more fun to read and watch more about this topic on your blog!
    If others may get triggerd or something like that because of that i would say don't worry about it too much. Because if they'd had a closer look on how you are bringing/spreading the 'vegan message' then one can see so clearly it's not from any kind of eating disordered kind of view. IMO there should be way more people spreading a 'normal' vegan message and not so much focusing on all the health aspects all the time - because i think that's what people who have or had an ed triggers mainly. So shortly: Keep it up with posts about veganism!! :)
