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!

A lovely email

Today i got this lovely email from a reader - infact i got many today - but i felt i wanted to post this one as it just made me so happy to hear that she is happy to be feeling stronger again. And i know that feeling, that feeling of happiness to feel stronger and to feel yourself getting better even if somedays are tough and you can still get negative thoughts. 

Stay strong all of you. I know you can do it - no matter what you are going through. It could be tough at school or tough at home or tough financially or maybe you have relationship problems. Its hard, but you can get through it!

Izzy,

I know you are extremely busy right now and overloaded with emails, so I will try not to keep you long.  However, I want you to know how much you have helped me in my recovery.  I have been going to dieticians and psychologists since November 2012, and ever since I have started reading your posts, I have made more progress than ever before.  My weight is increasing, pants starting to not fit which would typically send me into my typical eating restrictions and panic.  Don't get me wrong, I definitely still have the negative thoughts for a few seconds, but I can talk myself out of them, and realize that majority of the time I am eating healthy and I have enjoyed being able to eat what other people are at certain occasions, enjoyed actually wanting to workout for the joy of it instead of to change my body, enjoyed gaining muscle and becoming more strong.  So thank you for helping me continue to get my life back.  You will never know how inspiring and helpful you have truly been.
