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!

Are you reading anything at the moment? Maybe planning on reading some book?

No I'm not reading anything at the moment. don't really have time for it. ... used to re all the time. but now I haven't even looked at what are the best selling books or recommended books for me :/

What movie genre is your favorite?

I don't really have a favourite.  its very mixed but I do like mental thrillers. ... i like the excitement and guessing/unknown factor. which is pretty much what I hate in my own life - the unknown!

Do you like sleepovers?

No i dont. One thing I hate is when people try to keep me awake when I'm tired... and with sleepovers you are kept awake pretty much all night. I don't like it. but I mean spending time with friends,  talking, eating snacks, watching movies... i like all that. Another thing is that since Mando I find it very hard to sleep anywhere but home - but it's getting easier the more I travel :)

Do you like climbing trees? Rock climbing? It's super fun!

I dont like climbing trees but i love rock climbing :) I'm kind of afriad of heights but with rock climbing its ok :) I was going to get a card to one of the rock climbing centres this year, but at the start of the year my sister broke up with her boyfriend of 3 years and he was a rock climber and well.... she found it annoying if i was going to start rock climbing all the time.

   Though now im making my sister seem like a bitch... which she really isnt :) I also felt i didnt want to go rock climbing on my own... so maybe next year :)

Are you tired of these random questions?
Not really :)

Where do you get your quorn fillets from? :)
A normal food shop :) I dont really know which quron fillet you mean as there are different kinds... but this is the one i like most:

What is your favourite brand of yoghurt? And what is your favourite kind of yoghurt? Do you prefer Greek, soy, any other kind and what brand do you like the most? :)
My favourite brand is Verum :) And my favourite kind.. i love greek yoghurt but we rarely buy it (But im going to try buy it today :) :) ) and i also LOVE soy yoghurt, but its so expensive (for such a litle amount) that we only really buy it if we're going out to an island or somewhere where we need to transport the dairy/food.  And if i were to choose a favourite flavour? Well vanilla... but it needs to be a thick yoghurt, not like the runny yoghurt :)

do you have regular cottage cheese and mil or fatfree/fatreduced ?
Normal (4%) cottage cheese, normal milk (i.e standard milk) & with yoghurt it depends... this wek we bought the 3/4% yoghurt but last week we bought the 0,5% yoghurt. Its usually my mum or step dad who picks the yoghurt, so i just eat whatever we buy :) 
   When we pick food we dont think about the fat content, we think about whether we like the food or not... i used to eat the 1,5% cottage cheese but then when i tried the 4% i realised that i liked it alot more. And so started buying that one. And with Quark ive tried the 7,5% or 10% quark but it just isnt the same thing, not to mention that you only get like 150g or something in one jar compared to the 0,5% where you get 500g and is so much nicer... and its cheaper. 

I am going to try write about choosing normal foods and not always going for the low fat foods. But i need to think about it for a while, how to give some actual advice :)

  1. Hello Izzy,
    During your illness did you experience sleeping trouble? I usualy got to bed around 11pm and get up at 1am to then doze from 2am until 6am when I have to get up for work ....and it is almost so every nights.....what about taking sleeping pills to help me?

    Now that you are fully recovered, what time do you go to bed or fall asleep...and how long do you sleep ? Do you some time Wake up the night ? I Wake up 4/5 times in the night to go to the toilets ....I drink so much during the night
