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!

You dont need approval to eat & stop apologising for eating (video)

I felt i wanted to make a video about this topic as its something i have been thinking about recently. No make up on and of course, lose my track/topic... but thats part of the charm of my little home-made-waaayyy-too-long-videos :)

But i hope you can get something out of it anyway!


  1. this is so true! I hate when people need to validate or apologize for eating because deep down we KNOW if we are truly hungry for 100 grams of chocolate or aren't quite full and know we need or want to eat more. we need to listen to ourselves and our bodies and our own cravings and maybe take inspiration from others but not model their diets exact thats just ridiculous! they are completely different! I love your vlogs!!!!

  2. Ahaha I'm not going to breathe tomorrow - love it Izzy! But this video is very true - we overcomplicate our relationship with food, and I know I am guilty of eating based on what I think I 'should' eat, and what's 'acceptable' within society, rather than what I really want. I am still working on not feeling guilty after eating, but now that I am properly listening to my body and working out what it wants, I feel less guilty because I feel satisfied. You always make so much sense! xx

    1. Yes exactly! And I'm glad you are working on finding your balance and what's best for you! Nobody else can tell you. You have to find that yourself :) your body knows best!! And glad to see you're blogging again, I hope it helps!
