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:

Positive energy in the morning

Good morning everyone :) :)

Today i woke up with lots of positive energy and thoughts!! Making me feel energized and happy :) Today i have a winter sports day so my friends and I have chosen to go ice skating though as i am awful at ice skating and dont own any skates ive decided to bring Daisy with me (hopefully, i'll see whether i manage to get her on the train or not!) and my friends who have dogs are going to bring theres as well :) Its compulsory to go though as we dont get any grade or criteria for actually skating or doing any other sport, then its not necessarily a 'must' to ice skate :)

After that its home again to eat and study and clean and pack, because this weekend im going to stay at A's place. And im not sure if i have mentioned this already but im meeting his parents tonight - we're going there for dinner. So slightly nervous but not that much.... they are just people and well all i can do is be myself. Why try to change who i am, i might mess up and say something wrong or laugh at the wrong time... but i guess thats part of my charm or something? The most important thing is to be nice and to be open.... But of course, the first impression counts and i want to make a good impression!
   So hopefully that will go well this evening :) But for now... continue drinking my coffee, get ready to go and also clean my room slightly!

To add some more positivity to this posts.... its only 7am but here are my positives so far!

1)I got to sleep until 6.30am... That 30-60 minute difference REALLY made a difference!
2) I can wear sports pants pretty much all day today :) If i could i would wear them all the time!
3) Coffee. Coffee. Coffee.
4) Going to see my friends and their dogs (though ive met them all before :))
5) Going to hopefully be productive today so that i can do minimal amount of work this weekend :)

Below you see some actual 6.30am selfies.... (Now you might be wondering if i have a selfie addiction... its only for the blog, i promise! I.e i take the picture, upload it, never look at it again!)


  1. I'm sure they'll love you. Just know what you want, like always, people admire self-confidence. Not bragging, just not pretending. Tbh I'm pretty sure A must be the one actually more nervous now about what his parents will say or do :p have a great day ! -Carine.

  2. Hahaa I love positive energy in the morning :) especially next to having a coffee with it ;) So I wish you very much luck at meeting his parents ;) I am sure, they will like you and just be yourself, that is the best you can do, I promise you ;)
    xxx oh and I forgot it yesterday, but I wish you a happy World Nutella Day ;) just thought I have to mention it, because it is an occasion for me to tell you another thank you for all your help and support in my whole recovery Izzy ;)
