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!

Trying to be productive

Hello :)
   The relief when i finally get to school and open up my school computer and finally have access to the internet and my blog :) haha,
    The first thing this morning i had my swedish presentation and i felt super nervous but at the same time confident in what i was saying and i just wanted to get it over with... so it feels good that it is over now :) Can focus on other things, which is what i am supposed to be doing. I.e getting school work done, but i thought now that i have computer and internet i would write a little blog update as well as schedule some posts before i begin with my school work!! :)

Today will be a pretty long day in school, but ive just eaten lunch which was delicious sweet corn burgers with a filling salad!! However it did make me think about how when i was at Mando the food i was served there i thought it was super high calorie and fattening food served to us to make us gain weight, but that was not what it was at all. Because the food i was served at Mando is pretty much the same as the food i am served in school, however now i take the fish or vegetarian option. But its still sauces and rice or pasta or beans and there is nothing strange with that. Infact 75% of the time the school food is really good, and one of my favourites is the sweetcorn burgers so i was super happy when that was on the menu today :)
   Do you have any favourite lunch food?  Though if i got to choose myself i would make myself a filling salad consisting of chicken, falafels sundried tomatoe, cottage cheese and avocado as well as some crunchy lettuce leaves!! That is the best combination ever and i could eat it for lunch everyday :)

Though enough food talk, its time to be productive!!! :) 



  1. Hi Izzy,
    I was just wondering why you don't eat red meat?

  2. Hi, I have a question as well: does your school give a laptop to every student? Your school seems very modern from what you tell us :) maybe you could write a post about that..? Just a suggestion-you can decide wether this topic is worth a post or not ;)

  3. I love mixed salad with grilled chicken breast!
