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!

A day filled with lots of food

Today has been spent packing, fixing and cleaning. 2 hours in the car & lots of food. My stomach has been like a black hole and my body has been steered by my stomach and i have eaten copious amounts today!!

I.e how my intake has looked so far today (and there will be more!)
  Breakfast: egg cake with cottage cheese.
Then at the breakfast buffet with my family: Quark & strawberries & cream, 2 pancakes, 2 slices of cream cake, 1 nectarine & 2 slices of bread with caviar & 2 eggs.

Lunch: (very small as we were packing and didnt have much food left): quorn fillets & salad.
Dessert: big slice of chocolate mousse cake

Snack (when home): 4 crisp bread with spread and caviar. 3 carrots. 1 bounce ball. & 1,5 questbar

Dinner: Quorn mince & salad & beans
 Dessert: chocolate covered nuts & salted peanuts.

And there will be a night snack as well!!! Lots of cake and chocolate today! but thats ok its just been one of those days ;) ;)
  I dont even know or want to know  howe much ive eaten so far!! XD But my stomach is like the black hole today, everything just gets sucked in!
  However ive realised that eating things like cake and chocolate and even the pancakes i made it just made me more hungry.... When i make my own pancakes, or my own bread it fills me up. But the cake, white bread and pancakes just made me more hungry...
  But thats why wholegrains and things are usually better, though i mean cake and white bread is also yummy!! Got to have a balance :)

But i want to remidn you all to NOT panic if you do eat things like fries and chocolate on the same day or 2 or more 'less healthy' foods in the same day. Its ok, you will be fine!!! :)

Just look at my video from 2 posts back ;) Bloating goes away ;);)


  1. Hello, forgive my bad English, I'm a Spanish girl. I have an eating disorder since ago 3 years. I started with anorexia and now, I suffer from binge eating disorder. I admire your recovery and your body. You're a beautiful, amazing person. I really want to be like you. I am very afraid I am becoming an obese girl.

    A kiss.

    1. Hola... Me llamo Ryley. Pardon my spanish. I am a canadian!!! :P Trust me I am sure you are not becoming obese! :)

    2. Hope you're right. Thank you! :D

    3. Thank you :) And like the person above answered, i dont think you are doing to become obese. But it can be good to get your binges under control.... try to follow a meal plan, and get some type of help and support. I have many posts about binge eating which can help you :)

  2. what are bounce balls?? :) the name sound yummy :)

    1. They are raw food balls, the one i ate was with coconut and different nuts :) Super delicious... ill try write a review of them!

  3. hej. vad är det för väder i sverige? gör det regna ofta?

    1. Just nu är det väldigt soligt +25 grader, men annars burkar det va regn och halv-tåkigt väder ;) Vinter så snöar det för typ 3 månader!!

  4. That makes me feel better-was very anxious about having a veggie burger and then pizza for dinner.

    1. :) :) Food is energy and nothing to feel anxious about, even if you eat 2 'what you think are unhealthy' foods int he same day!

  5. Hey Izzy! Hope you're enjoying your summer. I just had an idea that maybe you could post your general gym workout or a newbie's guide to the gym? I'd like to start strength training but I'm terrified I'll do it wrong, at the moment I'm using light weights at home for fear of embarassment lol. Only if you have time though- make sure you enjoy yourself and don't spend all summer on your blog :)
