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:

Tuesday 6th January 2015


Today really hasnt turned out like i had thought. First off this morning i planned on taking a walk but once i was outside my legs carried me forward and suddenly i was running and it was one of the best runs i have had! The fastest as well though it really didnt feel like! It was such a good way to start my day, especially as i hadnt even planned to run, it was just that i had so much energy!
   I had then planned to study and try to get some work done as my first draft of my individual project is due next week, however i had so many other things on my mind that i couldnt focus. Sat there and did everything else but my work. And from the hours that i sat infront of my computer i think i only did one hour of actual work. Though thats how it goes somedays and im not going to worry so much about it, once im back in school i will feel more motivated, but for now. I just want to take the time to relax and not do so much. So after that i decided to just watch series and rest!!

And onto another topic, i have a food tips for you!!

We have pretty much no food at home at the moment (my parents are going food shopping today, so the pantries and fridge will be filled up soon) so i had to be creative with lunch and so i made tuna burgers with cream cheese and then popcorn on the side.
   And oh my gosh, the combination of tuna burgers with cream cheese was sooooo delicious. It made me crave bagels with cream cheese (so i messaged my mum to buy bagels, so hopefully! Though they arent so commonly found in stores here.).
  And on a side note im also craving chocolate like crazy, so im sitting here impatient and cant wait until my parents come home with food and hopefully lots of chocolate and chocolate covered nuts XD Im wondering if i should go to the shop and buy some for now... and just eat double, haha!!!

Food thoughts, thats what happens when im hungry!! Now im going to continue with my resting and not doing anything because that is exactly what i want to do for the rest of the day (and also going to watch the last Harry Potter with my family this evening. I love family & movie time..... or maybe its just that i love the snacks? I dont quite know!)

  4. Hi Izzy!

    Also i would like to say i LOVE your blog. It gives me more motivation to recover(which is a big step! :) )
