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!

Video: How to cope with dieters and to focus on your own goals

Sooo.... i decided to make a video!! I dont know why... but now ive made it so i thought, why not post it. Even if  i barely say anything useful, hahah :)

Though maybe more videos will come in the new year, or maybe not!!

Anyway, i hope you enjoy it :)

  1. This has been so useful Izzy! I know that you've already done a post on the dangers or negatives of recovering with a low calorie intake (i.e. 1500 calories etc) , as you said this slows down your metabolism, meaning it might never fully recover and you will be eating 1500 a day for your whole life arguably as a way of sustaining your weight. Whereas if you eat 300-2500 calories a day in recovery, your metabolism will recover, meaning you will be able to then sustain your weight at a normal calorie intake (say between 2000-2500). I was wondering if you could write again about this, or a bit more about this, as I have found this really useful in managing to up my calorie intake, as I am scared that my metabolism might never recover, and your posts about this help me to increase my calorie intake to avoid this. And more videos would be great! xxx
