Life without Anorexia

My motto is
'Dont let the sadness of your past & the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present'

I am a generally happy girl who loves running, going to the gym and eating food!! Though my life has been very different.
I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia & purging tendencies & over exercising. I was depressed and self harmed. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
After alot of struggles, lots of ups and downs, suicide attempts, tears, anxiety, panic and never thinking i would be healthy.
I am now declared healthy from anorexia nervosia.

I have been blogging for 4 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 am happy and healthy and living my life. Going to school, meeting friends and trying to find myself in this world.

I write about my daily life, but also try to write posts about how it was when i was sick, advice and tips.
I am open and friendly, so dont be scared about writing a post or sending me an email at:

An inspiring message

I got this email sent to me and i thought that it could be inspiring to others, to hear from someone else how far they have come and what they have achieved. Know that you arent alone and that you CAN do it. If others can recover, so can you!!! 

Dear Izzy,  

 I'm writing to you because I truly wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart to helping me get my life back. These past few months with half recovery especially have been the toughest and the worst. But now I feel so much more complete and for once in a long time, truly genuinely happy. Although I might get some triggers and thoughts, I feel and totally agree with you that being at a healthier weight really helps to fight off the ED thoughts. I am able to enjoy the food I eat again, chat and go out with family and friends and not be ashamed that I eat more than them and love life again. I can never truly thank and express to you how much you have helped me. You've helped me gain my confidence back, I can look in the mirror and smile at my flaws. I've learn to smile and be free again!!! I can't even believe it myself.
