Life without Anorexia

My motto is
'Dont let the sadness of your past & the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present'

My life at the moment is completely different to how it once was. I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia and depression as well as struggling with self harm and overexercising. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
And since 2012 i have been declared healthy from my eating disorder.

I have been blogging for 7 years, and my whole journey is written in my posts. I now represent healthy and happiness. I want to show anyone struggling that it is possible to recover, no matter how hard it may seem.

I now blog about recovery, my life, veganism and positivity!

Finally Midterm!

Home again, after a long day in school.... Feeling tired, but at the same time filled with some sort of energy?! Haha. During the last class today me and my friend just sat there laughing and messing about, we really couldnt concentrate! :)
   Laughing really is the best medicine!! You get filled with this happy energy and just feel good :) We should all laugh a little more :) && It looks better than a frown :)

At the moment, though i dont know how i feel.. or more, recently ive had many periods where ive just been lost in thoughts about different things. Alot of things.
   Things like my blog, about  school, job, the future... what am i doing with my life?What do i want to do with my life? How am i actually feeling? etc etc...
Sometimes it feels like i just want to write everything out.... just get it all out of my head, but i just end up staring at my diary... Its like i want to get it out of my head,  but at the same time... i cant put words to my thoughts. :(

Hmmm... Also wondering alot about my blog, starting to wonder whats the point anymore. It feels like i have nothing important to say anymore... :( But at the same time i dont want to give my blog up anymore... :/ Though i am blogging on my other blog alot more... Though it would feel so weird to not blog here anymore... But i guess i cant do this forever, anyway...

Snack after school: Oatmeal with raisins, apple, banana, walnuts, mixed with qark and cinnamon (and added milk after the picture!)


  1. Can I have the link to your other blog? xoxoxo

    1. Its about exercising/training/eating clean... so it might be triggering? Really its not so much personal.. its more that. So if you still want to read that?


  2. i think what you say is important... and i think having a place to express yourself, when you are feeling happy or sad or just day to day BEING, is a great thing. It is a release from the everyday, where sometimes its hard to speak up and voice your feelings. So dont ever feel like you arent doing anything by having this blog. you help and inspire people everyday :-)

    Anyways.. have a good midterm break! i just had mine so on monday its back to usual for me. Booo!!! have you got anything nice planned for the time off?

    1. Yeah i feel like that alot. Because i might not be someone who talks loads... or about how i am feeling, or any of that. So its kinda nice to just write about it here... but at the same time it feels so 'stupid' (not the right word... but my brain feels like musch at the moment!! XD) to just write about my days!! So im trying to think of some good things to write about :) Im thinking about finding some good recipes ,as i knów everyone loves new recipes :)

      Thank you! Im travelling to Ireland for a few days to spend some time with my dad!! :)
      Hope you've had a good midterm! Been able to relax from the stress? :)

  3. izzy, you should definitely keep your blog! even if no one reads/comments (which is not your case), even if you feel like you have nothing to write or if you feel like there's no point in it. you'll always have memories of what you were doing, how you felt at a certain point in your life and this blog will be your treasure of the past once you get older :)

    i would be pretty sad if you deleted your blog or stopped blogging. you are one of the main reasons why i overcame my ED on my own and i still read both of your blogs every day, cause it just feels like i'm listening/reading about a friend :D

    1. It actually feels alot like that. I love blogging, i really do. I like sharing my days, or just how i am feeling... but sometimes i just wonder what is the point. As before i used to write out because i had anxiety... or just because... now i dont know why i write? hah. And even though i have doubts, i dont know...

      I am so glad to hear that you have recoverd!! That is amazing :)

      Is there anything you would liuke to read more about? :) Would be great to know :)

  4. Can I have the link to you other blog??
