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!

The hunger games review

Im back at home after seeing the Hunger Games: MokingJay with my sister and her friend. I had heard that the film was good, but i didnt have any expectations really. I have read all the books so i knew what was going to happen!
  The first 30 minutes or so of the film didnt catch my attention, infact i found myself analyzing it too much.... which is a bit of a problem i have when it comes to films. I cant really just enjoy them because if they are bad or the production of the film is bad or its just too unrealistic, then i find it very hard to watch the movie. So i'm quite critical.
  But once the first bit was over i found myself drawn into the film and what was happening. And the time just flew by.

The ending scene.... not the best one in my standards anyway.... haha. It didnt leave me with the OMG feeling or 'whats going to happen next'. But that might just be me!!
I think the effects and the production of the film is 10/10 and even though some things are just 'too out there' its still realistic in a way. And not to mention that i love Jennifer Lawrence and think she fits perfectly into the role of Katniss!

If i think about it, not alot happend but thats how it is when they divide one book into 2 films. They have to drag out certain scenes so im guessing more will happen in the next film!

If you have seen the first and second Hunger games, then go see this one as well :) (and i recommend you see it in the cinena for best affect!) and if you havent seen any of the films.. then i recommend you do :)


  1. Hi Izzy! You've made me really want to see this now! I know that you're asking what people want you to blog about/for topics to write on, and I was wondering if you could do a post on spreading eating out during the day. I'm struggling to eat more during the day, as although I'm eating regularly, and substantial amounts each time, I save the majority of my snack calorie totals to make up my total required for the evening, which I know is bad, but I can't seem to get around it. Also, in anxiety in supermarkets when food shopping? Also, when did you find that thinking about food all the time reduces, only I think about food all the time, even when I'm not hungry and it's driving me crazy! Sorry, that's a lot for you, but just thought I'd ask! xx

    1. Im going to try answer all of these in posts coming up :)
      And with the food thoughts, they often happen when you have been restricting as your body wants food. But also you are so obsessed with food, calories, weight... when you begin doing more things and find hobbies then the focus isnt so much on food and eating is more natural rather than followinga meal plan or certain times you have to eat.
      So if you are allowed, then try find things you can do during the days or evenings :)
