DON'T WANT TO BE ANOREXIC.
Formerly - dontwanttobeaverage
Read below first ☺
My name's Kasia. I'm a 17 year old girl
in recovery who's recovered from Anorexia. I've had Anorexia since May 2010. I also suffer from severe depression, anxiety and some OCD tendencies.
I've been in recovery since September 2010, but I only began taking recovery seriously, and wanting it for myself, in January 2011, once I realised I was wasting my life in hospital.
I went into hospital at the end of October 2010 and left in March 2011. I went to hell and back there.
I am at a healthy weight recommended for my height, but I will not discuss my weight or height because I believe any discussion of numbers leads to a disordered competition, so please do not ask.
I'm trying to lead a healthier lifestyle, whilst inspiring my followers to do the same by choosing recovery.
This is where I will write about my ups and my downs, and I hope to show those of you with eating disorders that recovery doesn't mean "getting fat". It means leading a healthy and happy life with freedom. My posts will mostly consist of personal posts, inspirational photos or quotes, research into the psychology of eating disorders, and also a few items on fitness and nutrition.
My daddy has a page on my blog called "The Gospel According to Dad" which I'm hoping will show you how much your ED affects those around you, and maybe if a parent of an eating disordered child sees my blog, they will see that they're not alone in this experience either.
Think of this as a recovery blog, but if are you triggered by talk of exercise then please read with caution as I sometimes post about my workouts. This is a place that inspires recovery, and also a healthy lifestyle.
I love giving advice, so if you need help with anything, I'm always here for you, even if it's just as a distraction. And you can always contact me by tagging a post with dontwanttobeanorexic.I answer privately if it's unrelated to me/my food posts/my blog. br>

I just had my final exhibition for AS-level art! No going back now, lol, that’s it. Scared to get my results, but the showcase went well anyway.
Here’s a few photos of my two pieces, one on the theme of Space (the four vertical images) and one on Fast Food.
Can we all just appreciate how cute my mum is here? My dad’s the arty one in my family but he’s away and my mum was so excited to come and see my work and she was acting so proud. Omg, look at her little, beaming face ♥

Going out and feeling properly okay with how I look. Maybe because I didn’t rush and actual took time over how I look lol.

This is a segment of my body about five minutes ago. This photo is to prove to y’all the “muffintops” and “hip dips” are NORMAL and fucking sexy!
Notice I don’t have abs, by the way. Abs and a thigh gap and no butt crease (I defo have a butt crease!) aren’t what will make you happy.
Accepting yourself, even the bits you dislike, will make you happy. Realising aesthetics are not the be all and end all of life, and stopping caring so much about your appearance will.
You really think people are going to.judge you because there is a space where your thigh and pelvis are connecting? It’s all moot in the grand scheme of things.

Look what I got in the post today! The absolutely stunning Samantha got these for me off my Amazon wishlist. When I saw someone had purchased these, I cried with happiness, but I had no idea who had bought them for me until I got the accompanying note. So, Samantha, thank you sooo much. You’ve been the only tumblr person to buy me anything from my wishlist and your gift and note meant a lot to me xxx

You can call me Bonita Applebum. Hehehe, a girl friend sent me this chat message and I’ve had so many texts off the male species about my bootyliciousness. BMI 21.5 is working for me, eh!

Considering I’ve not worked out, let alone lifted, in over four weeks, I’m liking this small definition #GASSED
