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!

All these thoughts at once

I am sorry for the lack of posting today... i've just had alot in my head all day. Thoughts, stress and anxiety. But also has horrible fat feelings and not liking the way i look.-... weird considering the pictures i posted this morning, but yup.... feeling fat today and not liking how i look at all :( These days and feelings come and go.

I guess i just need to get out of my head for a while, i might take an evening walk.... clear everything for a while.

Otherwise this evening a foood diary of what ive eaten today is coming up :) For those of you who like them!

If you have any questions or topic ideas just let me know as im feeling lost for ideas!


  1. Remember: Fat isn't a feeling, it's an adjective! Everybody has flaws and imperfections, but that is what makes them individual and unique! I hope these thoughts clear up soon, Izzy. Fresh air is good to clear your head!

    Also, I was wondering whether you could do a post of, urm, periods and menstruation during and after recovery?! Awkward, I know, aha. But, like, what happens when periods come back and if they're really painful or not painful, etc. Of course, it most likely depends upon the individual, but still :)
    I (and many others, I'm sure) are very worried about this particular subject. It's very upsetting to know that my body isn't healthy enough for the 'monthly cycle'.

    Take care!


    1. :)
      I have written about how to get your period and when it comes back... so its just to search for that ;) Because when it comes to cramps and if its painful that is all about the individual. For me, i can either get such bad cramps that i cant move and end up getting sick or i dont get any pain and no bloating or anything. So it varies alot for me!!
      You will get your period back when you reach a healthy weight so dont worryabout that. If not maybe you need hormone pills, but it should come back hopefully. For some it doesnt come back at all though... so its very individual.

    2. Thank you!!! I searched it up and it was extremely helpful, Izzy! Thank you so much!
      Feel better soon :)

      Take care.


  2. I am so sorry you're feeling this way. Know that you are beautiful. I think you're gorgeous. And I'm being as honest as can be.
    I don't want to say you should do something you've been planning to do but didn't have time for, because even when you do have free time you don't always feel like it. Thinking positive thoughts, getting out of the house, contacting a friend, just doing anything that makes you feel better (ben&jerry's, cooking, gym) is a good idea. But it all depends on what you're feeling like doing.
    ^^ I feel like this advice is so obvious, but sometimes people do need to be reminded of simple things. Just like you do that with your blog. For example you always say to face your fears, eat enough, fight the voice in your head etc.
    I have fat feeling 95% of the time, but you helped and still help me so, so much. If it weren't for you I'd still be stuck and engaging in bad eating habits. I'm still fighting, but it's better than nothing. Thank you so, so much!! :)

    1. Thank you :) I am so happy i can help and you are right, sometimes you already know the information adn advice, its just that you have to be reminded of it!! :)

  3. Hi Izzy! Just remember that you are absolutely gorgeous and that feelings come and go. Just like good feelings of joy and happiness last only a while, so does bad feelings. In my opinion you can´t appreciate good days if you don´t have bad ones.
    How about a post of your favorite places in Stockholm? Tips on where to go shopping, eat and other activities.
    Hope your feeling better after a good nights sleep :)

    1. You are right :) Hmmm i might try make a post about that, but if im honest... im not so good with places to go in Sweden/Stockholm!! haha

  4. Hun, please dont feel like this. Its just a feeling and your mind is NOT telling the truth! Youre so beautiful!! And Im telling the truth, trust me(although you dont know me but JUST TRUST ME!!!). Youre a huge inspiration to me and its totally normal youre feeling this way.
