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!

Today is a good day to have a good day

Woke up today - not in my usual Friday mood of yup..m just a few more hours until the weekend.
  No, I woke up with a positive mood and you know what..... 2 good things happened this morning and I've only been awake 30 minutes!

1) No morning lesson... ok, so that sucks as I got up early. But that's ok  because now I'm planning on going for a walk!!! ;) Yaayyy!

and 2).... I won a questbar competition!!! It's so exciting it's like I can't even put words to it :) I never win competitions. Not when it comes to prizes. I'm not so competitive so I'm not about winning but I mean when it comes to winning questbars or other yummy food.. then I just keep hoping and wishing that one day I will be chosen.  And I was!!!!
  Wishing isn't such a bad thing :) Not sure when they will arrive,  but next week I guess. And perfect timing so I can bring them as school snacks,  have as treats!! But also.... well I'm a poor student and fitting questbars into my budget isn't priority one at the moment. So it feels really good to win!! I'm sure this will be my first AND last time winning an online competition! But you never know :)

I have so much energy and happiness so now it's time to go out.... maybe even run? Though I don't think Daisy wants that!


  1. my dear Izzy,

    I am glad you are glad :)

    I sent to you an e-mail these days. I know you are so busy but please, please, when you have the time and when you are in the right mood, please answer.... I put my hopes in you...

    You have no idea how much YOU and YOUR BLOG are helping me... daily, in every moment of the day...


    1. Thank you. I will try reply when i can, but have quite alot of studying and assignments to do, so when i get a chance i will.

    2. Please forgive me for reminding you about the e-mail. I wasn't sure if you got it...

      I hope I wasn't disturbing you,


  2. I've never won anything! I must start actually entering competitions though haha! I was up nearly all last night with my little boy as he had a fever so it's a zombie Friday here. After the huge amounts of walking to and from his room all night I'll have to make sure I add extra into my meal plan too! Have a lovely day izzy x

    1. I liek to think... if i dont enter, then i never know if i would have won or not... so thats why i usually enter, even if like 99/100 times i lose :)
      Ohh, i hope he feels better soon :) It sounds like it might be a movie day for you two? Whenever im sick i always watch movies and lie in bed! And great that you are going to eat more, thats definitely what your body will need, especially if you havent gotten alot of sleep.
