Hi ! Nice to meet YOU :)

My name is Larissa and THIS is something very new to me – hence the excitement.

WordPress tells me to first introduce myself to you. And since I´m german and Germans always follow everyone´s demands:

Here‘s my introduction for you!

I want to spare you the details like me still attending school (is there a more boring subject I could potentially talk about??) and me being a dog mama. Or me wasting all my money on garage sales (because everything is “so cheap”).

By now, you´ve probably asked yourself two things:

  1. “What did I get myself into?”
  2. “WHY is she telling me all this?”

Well, as I told you, I had to introduce myself in good ol´german fashion!

But let´s get to WHY I created this website.

I was anorexic. WHAAAT, no decorative explanations that could make it more readable (is that even a word)?

One might ask: “Larissa, are you okay?!”

I now am.

But during my eating disorder, the darkest time of my life, there was no room for joy, let alone for anything fun or beautiful. I suffered.

And I know that there are a lot of beautiful souls who need help just as much as I needed it back then.

What a “happy” and “authentic” smile!!

Four years ago I´ve been released from a clinic which was supposed to cure me from my destrucive eating habits. Well, as you might imagine, that did not happen.

In fact, I felt worse than ever before.

Sure, weightwise I was considered „healthy“, I felt more energetic than I had for an entire year and my hair was finally growing back (which apparently didn´t stop me from plugging my eyebrows to a bare minimum- what was I thinking?!).

But my stress levels were as high as ever. The amount of food I was confronted with, completely overwhelmed my anorexic self! I felt like a pig, stuffed within an eight month´s period to then be slaughtered by the butcher.

No wonder that after my release from the clinic, the pounds where dropping again.

But then, something happened. My little brother´s eight year old friend died of cancer. I realized that I had treated my life like an unopened gift thrown away! I didn´t care about the present. (Wow, I should consider a career as poet.)

I had that `click´- moment. A moment when my body sat down with my brain to explain: “When will you learn not to take me for granted, you stooopid ***?! I can´t do this anymore. You need to stop this shit RIGHT. NOW.”

And finally, I listened.

What the clinic could not achieve, I did myself.

“God helps those who help themselves.”

I believe that we are capable of achieving ANYTHING we set our mind to. Just like I `managed´ to destroy myself, I built myself back up. This time not only physically- but also mentally.

I worked out what worked for me and my friends supported me throughout the whole time (Yes, I do have friends.).

Mentally strong, I wanted my body to be strong as well- I found my true passion in weight training and bodybuilding. The right exercises and nutrition allowed me to build the body I´ve always wanted- without restricting or starving myself. I LOVE IT.

I´m happy I swear, just flexing so hard that smiling was not possible anymore, lols

By now I consider myself a professional “Not-giving-a-damner“ for any anorexic triggers.

How I got to this point?

I read tons of books and articles about anorexia and eating disorders but none of them actually helped me. On the contrary: Often, they triggered me into old thinking patterns of feeling “fat” or “worthless”!

No bueno.

BUT: In this blog I will share with you the things I did (and still practice) to become happy.

When we´re happy, we can be healthy.

What I need to know from you is:

ARE YOU READY TO BE A BADASS?!

Lots of love,
