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!

  1. Do more videos and maybe a tour of your house? what are your favourite foods? what are your favourite drinks? where do you want to live when you are older? where do you see yourself in 5 years time? 10 years time?

  2. What do you know and how do you feel about super foods? Powders such as macs, lucuma, camucamu, baobab, spirulina etc

  3. Can you talk more about your CF?like how does it affec tyou? how does it impact you? would you get rid of it if you could? is there a cure? does anyone else in your family have CF? do you know others with CF?

  4. Did you Meet this Boy again?

  5. Hi :)

    I was just wondering how did you first deal with eating with your parents after you were recovered? or even during? I just find eating with my dad awkward. Especially when were watching tv together and a weight loss commercial or something fitness related comes up I feel extremely awkward and find myself saying something random to cover up the commercial.


  6. hey Izzy :) I would love a post about eating out..that's always been something I have really struggled with. And to this day eating out in a restaurant with my family gives me anxiety and I never enjoy it. Also, could you perhaps talk a little about what you did to distract yourself when you were recovering? what helped you cope with not being able to exercise and helped keep your mind off things? And I know you might have answered this already before izzy, but i just was wondering.. what actually made you start wanting to recover...for yourself? was it gradual, did something one day just compel you, etc? Im not doing too bad at the moment Izzy but still, I know myself...I am not recovering for myself - the only motivation I have is to make my loved ones happy. I just wonder sometimes if I will ever find acceptance, for the fact I need to gain and fight forrecovery, for myself as one as all those I love.

    Sorry I know this is a bit long ;) thank you so much Izzy!! Oooh and more pictures of Daisy and snacks would be good too - these always bring a big smileto my face ;) xxx
