Fighting Anorexia is a blog dedicated to everybody (not just eating disorder sufferers) who longs for a free, healthy and purposeful life.
I write about learning to love yourself and your body, about finding your voice and sharing it with others. I empower you to change your thoughts and your attitude and I share with you the many lessons I learn on my path towards a fulfilled life.
Additionally, the goal of this blog is it to spread the news about the dark side of the slimming craze: the suffering, the loneliness, the deceptions, the heartache, the weakness, the mental terror and the deteriorating health. Fighting Anorexia wants to provide a platform where anybody struggling with an eating disorder and poor body image feels save to have his voice heard and feels understood and never judged.
Standing on the brink of death, having struggled with anorexia for 14 years, Anne-Sophie has finally been able to break the cycle of eating, not eating, exercising and abusing laxatives in the spring of 2011. After a 3-month long stay at a sanatorium that resulted in almost no weight-gain, Anne-Sophie has been able to reach a healthy weight and is slowly finding her way to health and a better life. It is a difficult journey, one that will last years, but Anne-Sophie is determined, as determined as she was when she started her first diet, and she will be the winner of this fight against her own body.
During her time at the sanatorium, Anne-Sophie started her first blog called My Intercontinental Life, which was then followed by Fighting Anorexia, the blog that she had been dreaming of doing for years.
Anne-Sophie’s story is only one of millions. This blog is her attempt to do something against this horrible disease.
What others say about Fighting Anorexia:
Jo Kay: I think the way I feel helped by Anne-Sophie, is just seeing and hearing how courageous she is being…I find some people’s experiences make me feel cynical as they can make their process of recovery utterly remarkable and with no blips, which I don’t feel is realistic. Anne-Sophie is real, honest, so open and I find it refreshing. She is very relatable and it does help me to not feel so weird (lol) and alone. She exudes compassion and warmth, and she speaks very well, which makes her podcasts easy to listen to.
Luise Karg McCaffrey: The Fighting Anorexia website and podcast has given me a brand new perspective and insight into this epidemic. I am thankful for Anne’s courage and although she claims she is shy, she is a giant inside by fighting back. Her podcast is a mixture of professionalism, lots of research and her own real life experiences. Her sweet voice and determination is a life safer in so many prospects. Let me tell you… she is REAL. That’s why I keep logging in, and keep on listening. If you suffer from this horrific debilitating disease, please watch and participate by leaving a comment or feedback.
