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 going to be a good day!

i am going to be a typical Swede, and start this post with Weather talk :) Hahah. Yes.. i am the type of person who, if i am in an awkeward silence with someone i will begin talking about the weather :)

But anyway, recently it has been around 10-15 degrees during the day i.e not so cold!! (But its getting colder from now on... :( )
  But it means that the mornings have the perfect walking temperature. Its not so cold that your sweat freezes on your skin and you walk like an icicle, but its not so hot that you are sweating so much you just want to take off all your clothes and go lie down somewhere.
  But its a good mix of, if you put on some dry fit clothes and a warmer - but light jacket, then you dont freeze and you dont overheat either ;);)

Hhahaha... all my years of morning walks ive finally learnt how to dress properly!!

When i came home it was time for breakfast and i must say, it was better than usual!!!
Yoghurt and quark & nuts, 2 boiled eggs, ginger flavoured cashews and coconut. (The 60g packet was easily eaten, they are sooo good. And whats better is that its all organic :)) & a Raspberry and Lemon Kombucha!!
   I am going to write a review about both the nuts and the Kombucha :)

Today my mum wants to take me out for lunch and im definitely not complaining :) Free food? Why yes... thank you :)
Im hoping we can go to the vegetarian buffet so that i can eat as much as i want and not just be limited by the small portion i would get at a normal restaurant :)
(And p.s... just because im going out to eat DOESNT mean i eat less ;);) Its not about compensating!)

Taking probiotics, not stressing and a little change in my diet = back to no bloating (unless i eat a big meal which is basically 6 times per day... but the bloating is pretty much gone and the pain!! Woop woop!)


  1. Hey Izzy, you look so great on the pictures. No more bloating thanks to a few changes in your diet. May I ask then what exactly you changed in your diet?
    Thank you for the answer.

    1. Thank you :)
      It was also less stressing which helped with the bloating. But i cut down on too much fiber rich food, less salt (i am a salt addict :)), i havent used any sweetners either and also eating a smaller night snack. I found that i ate quite alot before going to bed which left me still feeling full and blaoted the next morning. So instead i eat more for dinner & a dessert and then a smaller night snack :) Its helped me anyway!

  2. Yes, I suffer from bloating as well.....what's your secret? :)

    1. Bloating can happen for many different reasons but in the comment above i answered what i changed :)

  3. So happy to hear that the probiotics have helped you! I am going to restart mine-super uncomfortable this week. Plus the kind I take have added B vitamins!

    1. Pro biotics can really help :) Especially if you have been stressed or been on anti biotics!
