What life is like without an eating disorder

What is life without an eating disorder? I'm not sure because I've had one for so long. Not as long as some other people, but still a long time. And I keep trying to think what life would be like without anorexia, but it's hard because I feel like I've had this for so long.

I guess like without an eating disorder would be life with happiness. Life without worrying about stomach fat, exercising, overeating, and how many calories are in this food or that food. Life without an eating disorder would mean I would be free. I would be free to make my own choices without someone in my head telling me what to eat and when and how much to exercise. Life without an eating disorder would be amazing. I wouldn't have to worry how fat or skinny I am because I would be skinny. And I would believe that for once in my life.

Life without an eating disorder equals hope. Hopefully, I'll be free one day. Then I can help others like me.


  1. I wonder the same thing. I have no idea what life is like without Eating Disorder, but I do have an idea that everybody does struggle with something in their lives. I have met some people who are like, "I wonder what my life will is like without drugs", "I wonder what my life is like without an addiction to something", and go on with countless things. I have come to a conclusion that you know what, life is imperfect in its own way, and it is what makes life worth living for. We all have to go through something to really show ourselves that we are stronger than we think we are. I'm rambling now so I better stop typing, ha ha. :)

  2. I love this post. I wonder this sometimes. We all have our crosses to bear. One day, I hope I will be able to answer the question of what life is like without an ED.

  3. Life without an ED will be simply beautiful. I hope that we all will get to that place.

    That quote from Winston Churchill is one of my favorites, by the way. Thanks for the inspiration. =)

    Stay strong,

  4. Hi Danielle...
    I have seen your cute little cookie monster gravatar around and finally got the time (erm...opportunity to slack off at work) and visit your little world over here and so I wanted to say, "Hi." and that I think that one day we WILL know what life is like without ED and not be able to imagine (erm..remember) life WITH ED.

    I am like that when I think back to a time when I was worse off than I am now...I am like "was that even me??"
