This will be a more personal podcast episode. So, if you don’t want to hear more about my year, please come back on Monday, when I will release a regular episode of Fighting Anorexia.

In this episode of Fighting Anorexia, I talk about my year 2011.

I talk about my time at the treatment facility and how that has radically changed my life and the way I look at my disease.I share details of my trips to 5 continents, what I have learned during those trips, what I have struggled with on those trips and what I would do better the next time.

I then go on to share more about how I was able to continue my fight against anorexia nervosa at home and how my life has changed since then.

2011 was a year of growing up and growing strong. It was the year of surviving and figuring out what I want to do with my life. It was the year of discovering my passion.

2011 was the year I got to know YOU.

I would like to thank each and every single one of you for making this year so special. I love you guys.

I then continue to give you a short outlook on what to expect from me in 2012.

And SO much more!

Today, the voice in my head screams louder than it did in the last 3 or 4 weeks.


I feel fat and bulky and my stomach seems 10 times bigger than yesterday.

Today, I don’t know if I can live with my body, with my thighs, my stomach, my big face. I do not know if it’s just one of those days or if it is the fact that I chose not to work out yesterday. It doesn’t matter, because this feeling stinks.

At the same time, I have been laying awake all night fighting cravings.

It has been months since I last ate a piece of chocolate, something that I allowed myself when I was still taking laxatives.

I really want to eat a Nutella bread again or a toast with Hagelslag or real honey (not the packaged tiny portions) or a bowl of grits with butter or just a plain old piece of milk chocolate.

I am so sick and tired of not allowing myself to eat anything sweet, I really am. But I do not know if I can live with the consequences of indulging in a bread of Nutella.

But I think that I am going to risk it, I think that I will go and buy one of the mentioned delicacies and see how I will feel tomorrow.

Wish me luck and Keep Fighting!
