Anorexia is not a look or an image to be coveted or glorified - it is a heartbreaking, soul destroying disease
Fiercely feminist advocate of body love, health at every size and intuitive living.
I am a 23 year old Psychology graduate with a passion for sharing my own recovery from a scale-obsessed, severely restrictive dieter and over-exerciser through intuitive eating, health at every size and body positivity.

Only when you let yourself go do you truly become yourself. You find the freedom your body has always craved and you learn to tune into your intuition. This might come with a few extra pounds or an extra belly roll or two but so what? Is that really the worst thing that could happen in your life?
