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:

My lunch and outfit of the day

My last official day of school today!! I only got around 4-5 hours sleep last night - as it was such a late night with all my friends over and i had so much energy that i couldnt get to sleep. So i decided when i woke up that today would be a rest day. I wouldnt go to the gym so i ate breakfast, got ready and headed to schoool. Only to find out that it was sort of pointless that i came... as there was no attendance taken and it was only a christmas show, which wasnt obligatory. Though all of my friends were there so im glad anyway... even if i secretly wished i had followed my gut instinct and not woken up when the alarm rang!
  When the Christmas show was over i said my good byes and Merry Christmas's to my friends and then headed home... it was only around 11.30 am so after cleaning up the kithcen and the living room from yesterday i began making lunch. It felt nice to have motivation, time and energy to make a delicious lunch. There wasnt so much food to choose from, but i still made something delicious and filling.

2 chicken fillets, vegetables, couscous and 2 crisp bread with spread. Who said you should eat less during a rest day? Your body needs energy no matter whether you exercise or not!

Below you also see my outfit of the day!!! Its good to vary posts (im so bad at doing this) so maybe some more outfit pictures and lunch/dinner pictures will be up!

One thing i do want to remind you all is that, Dont compare your food intake to mine. I eat differently everyday and portion sizes vary alot as well as what i eat and when i eat and whether i do inbetween snacking as well. There are just a few food pictures i post when i feel like it :)
And also to not compare body shape.... Im posting the pictures of me because i want to. Because i felt good :) So dont look at the pictures and begin comparing yourself. (Just a little note and reminder!)


  1. haha i find on the last day of school that it was never really worth coming in because all we really do is just watch films in class!
    As always Izzy, you look so pretty in your outfit! I like your top especially!

    1. Thank you :) yeah its usually like that.... but I go in to meet my friends, more than to watch the show /films :)
