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

Life relatables/reminders

"I’ll never forget the most valuable piece of advice I was given, “if you feel like you can’t make it through the day, only focus on the next hour. If you feel like you can’t make it through the next hour, only focus on the next few minutes. If you feel like you can’t make it through the next few minutes, take it one breath at a time.” I have to remind myself that, you’re gonna be okay, try to see through the cloud of doubt that is harboring all of the negative energy. It’s gonna get better. You are not alone. You are loved. So many people care about you, and want to see you happy and smiley. It’s okay to feel like this. Your feelings are valid. It’s okay to feel nothing at all. You’re not going to feel like this forever." (Source X)




"if you practiced self care today by cleaning your room, doing dishes, catching up on missed assignments, and eating healthy, i’m so proud of you. your hard work is really impressive, and even if other people don’t notice, you did great.
if you practiced self care today by resting, drinking tea, and rereading/rewatching old favorites, i’m so proud of you. it takes strength to be kind to yourself, and you deserve that kindness. i’m really glad you were able to get it. 
if you struggled with practicing self care today, i’m still proud of you. you are surviving. it can be so hard to make it through the day, and you did it. you’re going to go into tomorrow, alive and able to keep living and keep growing. your survival means something. you’re going to be ok."


"Things will work out, but staying up all night worrying about them isn’t going to help. So for now, rest your head and get some sleep; tomorrow’s another day to fight your fight. "
