Life without Anorexia

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

I am a generally happy girl who loves running, going to the gym and eating food!! Though my life has been very different.
I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia & purging tendencies & over exercising. I was depressed and self harmed. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
After alot of struggles, lots of ups and downs, suicide attempts, tears, anxiety, panic and never thinking i would be healthy.
I am now declared healthy from anorexia nervosia.

I have been blogging for 4 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 am happy and healthy and living my life. Going to school, meeting friends and trying to find myself in this world.

I write about my daily life, but also try to write posts about how it was when i was sick, advice and tips.
I am open and friendly, so dont be scared about writing a post or sending me an email at:

Sunday food diary

As there are many requests for food diaries, ill try do them more often. But no promises as i know there is so much comparing done behind the screen.
  Remember that what i eat suits ME. For my body, my energy, my life. This is just to show how i eat on a random day. I dont follow any meal plans, rules or anything. Just what im craving and how hungry i am today. So please remember this and no comparing!!!

Breakfast: Fruit salad - 2 apples, 1 orange, strawberries, cottage cheese, yoghurt and mix of nuts.

Lunch: Vegetables, chicken, chickpeas, beetroots & cottage cheese.
   Dessert: 4 pieces of dark chocolate.

Snack: 2 X  medium sized bowls of blueberry yoghurt, handful of raisins and 2 handfuls of mix of nuts & muslie. & 1 apple

Dinner: salad, sweet corn, 1 can of mackerel, 3 slices of homemade bread with spread and chicken.

Snack part 1) Chocolate

(Part 2 when i come home - sitting on a bench with my sister after a walk and eating chocolate! )


  1. Dear Izzy, you ate so many apples! Haha. To be honest, I don't think posting your food diaries is a good idea for this recovery blog. As you have said, there is a lot of comparison. I think even normal people would unconsciously compare their diet with yours, not to mention those who are trying to recover. This is just my opinion, but I don't think you should try to avoid posting food diaries. But of course it's up to you what you want to post on your blog!

  2. Although food diaries are interesting anon made a valid point.
