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:

The days when everything feels a little extra dark, dont forget to put on a smile

When the alarm rings at 6am and you feel like you havent slept at all (though you have for 7 hours), it feels tempting to turn off the alarm and roll over. Not to mention that after my first lesson i have a long break until the afternoon. But thats ok... ill use that break to be productive with other school stuff!

At the moment, i am sorry for the awful blogging. Mostly about food.. so i am going to try think about new material. Try to find new inspiration and time for writing. But at the moment i am doing the best i can with what i have and the time i have left over :)
   The next few weeks (until my midterm) will be stressful so i can't guarantee any immediate changes or improvements :)

Fruit salad with nuts and yoghurt & 2 eggs for breakfast.
It was still dark outside when i made my breakfast so lots of added brightness to the photo so you could even see what it is in the bowl :)

Now its time to try to wake up and feel energized!!


  1. I'm hoping to start feeling energised soon...I'm waiting for my overnight oatmeal to kick in! Good old Mondays >:-(

    1. Haha yes, I like to call it Monday morning blues :)

  2. Don't worry, izzy! I think your bloggin lately has been great :) Take your time with everything and just breathe!! <3 xoxoxoxo

  3. I'm getting really stressed out lately.
    I'm at a safe weight to exercise and currently run cross country, but I still need to gain a few pounds. When I went for a check up, I had lost a pound since my previous weigh in (a month and a half ago). The doctor said it was probably natural fluctuations in weight or a combination of the stress from school and changes in schedule. My mom freaked out though, and now she's stressing me out. I know she wants what is best for me, but she keeps pushing food on me 24/7, and it is really bothering me. I AM EATING.
    I'm sorry. I just don't know how much more of her I can handle.

    1. Talk to your mum! That's the most important, communication is key. Let her know that you can eat and eat enough. Don't be rude to her because she is just trying to help and it can be hard as hell. But she just wants what's best for you and is worried. So make an effort to eat more, accept food when she offers but also remind her that you don't need to be eating 24/7. That you eat when you are hungry/ or if you have a meal plan.
      Trust will be earned over time. Try not to panic or freak out about this, instead let someone know. Or even talk to your doctor or dietician about it.

  4. What's the difference between whey protein and whey protein isolate? :)

  5. Can you write something about boosting metabolism after ED or share a link if you have already written about it...:))))

    1. A post is coming up today :) if I haven't answered your question in that post then just tell me and I will write another :)

  6. Suits me, I love your food posts. They keep me motivated
