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!

12 hours sleep

Good morning :)
   I had planned to update yesterday but I just felt that i was going to fall asleep all day. And infact after I came home from my last day in school I pretty much just lay in bed - replying to emails,  fixing my blog etc And later I followed with to do food shopping. And after I ate breakfast for dinner (double. portion oatmeal,  lots of berries, nuts, PB and egg).I ended up falling asleep at around 8 pm! It was exactly what my body needed. I guess 7-8 hours sleep a night isn't enough for me. Sleep really is important,  something which i guess I forget about at times.

When i was sick, I could never take a nap in the day,  or just lie in bed during the day or go to bed before 11pm.  I had my routines, i had to exercise, spend all my day time doing something i couldn't rest at all....
    And i can say, when you actually learn to rest.  To listen to your body and know it's ok to lie on bed and watch 3 episodes in the afternoon, you'll wonder why you spent so many hours pacing each day.
   Learn to rest and listen to your body!!!!

Today is my first day of summer break, and not so many plans. Thinking of taking a walk now in the morning. And later I'm going to be PT to my sister, though i won't be exercising ;) My body needs a break from te weights!

Apart from that not so much.

And i want to thank you all for all the lovely comments on my 'too many thoughts' post. And all the emails I received ;) It really is nice knowing you all care!!!
    So thank you :)

  1. Hi, Izzy - I'm glad you're feeling better now! It's awful feeling tired and sleepy so I know how you felt on that: if I had 7-8 hours of sleep a day then I'd be dead on my feet! I just want to thank you for creating such a wonderful blog. The day I found your blog I finally found deep inspiration to begin recovering from my ED, and I can't thank you enough for that. Really, I've now begun to be honest with my clinic I go to and they're now able to help me so much better. You're such an inspirational person for recovering so well from you're eating disorders and it makes me feel so empowered to see that people do recover and be happy again! I'm starting to like life again, and that's amazing! You're blog is a big motivational thing in my life and it encourages me to get better, no matter how much I want the perfect body.
    Thank-you Izzy!! :)
