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!

At the moment i just want to say im sorry for the awful blogging and not being able to answer all comments. Im feeling very overwhelmed with work and in general, very low. Not so much energy and lots of things gonig on in my head... its like im waiting for something, but not sure what.
Today has been a long day in school but i had a long break to go to the gym which was just the thing i needed. Each time i go to the gym i just realise even more how much i love it... infact im so excited to workout everyday. Energy, motivation and happiness for it. And once im there, i can just forget everything else for a while. Thats my favourite thing about working out, is that i can just forget everything.... i have like 1 hour where i focus on other things. I dont think... im someone who analysis and over thinks things which isnt so great. But with exercise i can just stop thinking... and i also leave with a new found energy and happiness... i love it. A break in a long school day and i return with energy and focus and ready for my last lessons!

 Atfter school i was in need of a pick me up, so i went to the store to get some of my favourites! Salted nuts, a sugar free chocolate as well as a normal Marabou Daim!!! Perfect combination and then also the last of the pancakes which i made yesterday :)

  Much needed treat today :):)
 I have work that needs to be done this evening though i dont feel i can muster the energy for it...  Instead ill try fit it in tomorrow. Instead, i need to de stress this evening. 

Once again, sorry for the awful blogging recently. But my energy and priorities are on other things at the moment!


  1. Your blogging is not awful! I haven't really noticed anything being significantly 'worse'. It's still you and it's still your blog! So don't beat yourself up :) You have a life after all and all kinds of important things to do. And you also need rest and some time to just think and breathe. So no need to apologize! And you letting your readers know why you are not replying to comments and things like that is very smart of you. That way people know you're not just ignoring them. Very professional in my opinion!
    Just some reassurance :)
    Mmmm, chocolate! Can you come over my house and make me food!? Ahaha, if only that were an option! ;) :)

  2. i agree, there is absolutely nothing wrong with your blogging at the moment izzy, it is as meaningful and as well-written as always. Im so sorry to hear you're feeling down :( i hope you feel better soon. <3 try to remember, things will get better, and that worrying wont help anything! last weekend i felt very down too, what with my sore foot and having gone to the doctor and learning that my bmi and weight were still too low :( but today i had a really lovely day and im determined to put my slipups behind me and never give in. i know that life is wonderful and that i have so much to bbe grateful for. i have so many lovely things to look forward to, every day and in the future too. i have the continous love and support of my beloved family and friends behind me to help me along. and i think ive finally come to realise worrying really doesnt change anything and its better to just smile and let go and go along with the flow.:)
    i really really hope you feel better soon izzy <3 and yes chocolate always helps i find!! today i had my first ever frozen yoghurt...peanut butter flavour, topped with rushed triple choc cookies. it was GORGEOUS, i ate it all even though it was massive!! nothing beats a chocolate pick me up! :)

  3. i agree with both comments(olivia's and emily's :) ). you just invest so much into making your blog super lovely and helpful that even if there are a few posts less than other days, we still have so much to read!! :) and you are only human : it is normal to have some periods like this, where your mood just goes down and you start thinking too too much :( and i understand you completely because i also feel like i have the tendency to analyze every thing and over and double/triple/ quadruple think things!! :( take some time for yourself if needed, we will understand :) love your blog so very much and you are one of the most inspirational and amazing people i know (through the blog only though, i wish we could all meet up in real life:you + all the readers!! :) ) big hugs and wishing you luck through this time(including school work because i am also in that same position of being overwhelmed with school work!! :( ) lots of love :)

  4. Izzy you have an awful lot going on
    So there is no reason to apologize at all
    You are loved no matter how many posts you post
    We all have a life outside of blogging
    And it's important to prioritize school, family etc
    So please don't worry

    Hope you feel a little better soon
