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

Positives of the week

So last week I never wrote a "positives of the week", and then I was too tired to do it yesterday evening.  So I thought, why not start off the new week with a positive mindset and thinking  about the positives about last week (some of the positives might be from 2 weeks ago because in all honesty time just blurs together haha)

1) getting to eat dinner with my step dad!
2) getting my vegan apparel t shirt!
3) Making and eating chocolate brownies
4) trying my first lenny and Larry's cookie
5) going for a really nice walk yesterday where I just felt thankful and positive!
6) hopefully all my hours of studying will pay off for my test today!
7) now that I need to move it means I'll see different areas of gothenburg.  Connect with other people. Push me outside of my comfort zone. So I'm just seeing these as positive changes and hoping for the best!
8) reconnected with 2 of my old friends again!
9) another positive is that it isn't freezing cold yet which I am so thankful for!
10) another positive is that I've also cleared the air between me and the woman I live with so now it feels fine/good living here the next 2 weeks before I move!
11) all the helpful and kind people in my life and all of you who reached out to me and to see if I was OK! It means the world to me!

It feels good to think about the positive and positive things in life, and a great way to start the new day and the new week!!!

So if you have any positives of the day or positives in your life,comment below:)
