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!

5 hours of sleep and ready for the day

Good morning :)
   After only 5 hours sleep last night i am feeling just a little tired. My head is not quite where it should be and trying to pack my bag took a solid 10 minutes as i just couldnt remember what i needed for the day... this is why i usually pack my bag the night before XD

Yesterday was a really good :) It started off with school and more school, working on some assignments, answering lots of emails and finally at 3pm my last class which was my french test. How did it go? It is very hard to know its a bit of a guessing game really, trying to apply all the rules and remember the irregular verbs and the conjugations and such as well as trying to formulate sentences and a story. But hopefully i will get that test back next week and that i atleast passed it :)

After my French test i was finally able to leave and then i headed to A's place where we then went to buy dinner a simple grilled chicken, salad and bread!

Ive been asked whether A workouts and whether he eats healthy and whether im going to tell him about my blog:
He does workout a few days a week, mostly when he feels like it. Though he has an understanding that i workout quite often and i enjoy it and he has no problem with it... it was even him who suggested that on Saturday morning (im staying at his this weekend) i can go for a run before i study as ive mentioned that i get quite restless during the day! So that was really sweet that he thought of that :)

Does he eat healthy.... No. And in time im going to start giving him nutritional advice... its too early to begin doing that now XD But well, he's a teenage guy. Though as i am quite flexible with food i dont mind eating things liek burgers or pizza as long as it doesnt become an everyday thing. But we're good at compromising.... :)

Am i going to tell him about my blog? Not in the near future anyway.... Im personally not ready for that :) It would also mean that im sure he would like to see or read my blog and well.... i dont think i will ever be ready for family, friends or partners to read my blog!

So there you have some answers about A :)

Today its another day of school and a morning workout!! Despite getting so few hours sleep i am very energetic :) So my plans today is to spend lots of time working on assignments as i want to avoid having to spend like 3-4 hours both Saturday and Sunday working on them, so i would much rather sit 1-2 hours after school to write on those :)

I hope you all have a lovely day! And regarding comments, i am so sorry i havent replied but ive just been so busy and i dont look or read my blog when im in school so the only real time i have to answer comments is when im at home and have done my studying and am not too tired :) Hopefully you have understanding for that. But i also want to say a BIG thank you to everyone who does comment and read my blog, it means alot to me :)


  1. hey izzy
    i would like to ask if you will tell A about your past (anorexia etc) but just not the blog and wondered what your take is on relationship and telling one's partner about the past ?:) so exited to hear about your relationship and happiness!

    1. Thank you so much :) I thought i would answer this in a post coming up either tomorrow or the weekend :)
