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!

If you have any questions leave them in the comment section as i am much quicker at answering there, otherwise you can always send an email:

Back to school

Today was back to school again and i cant say i was super excited. Living without routines and just doing whatever i felt like during the day was kind of nice....  Being able to workout with my sister, wake up at 8am (haha sleep in!), go for runs, buy a yummy lunch, meet friends, go to the cinema, watch movies until late at night, spend the day in the sofa.... it was (and is!) nice.  But it makes you appreciate the break a little bit more when you have to work hard inbetween the breaks! I guess if all i had was freetime it would get a little boring and i wouldnt know what to do with myself!

After a long day in school & 30 minutes extra because we were preparing for our maths test on Wednesday, but finally i was home at 4.30 pm. Not feeling so tired, but wanting fuel and caffeine!!

I dont have any studying to do this evening... or i do, but instead im going into school 2 hours earlier tomorrow (hahah sounds like i love spending time at school, but i begin at 12pm tomorrow so going to school at 10am isnt so bad, then i get lots of work done and dont have to do it Monday evening). But i realised when i came home that i had forgotten my computer charger so now i only have an hour battery time left, so i wouldnt have been able to get much work done anyway... so now im going to spend the next hour trying to be somewhat productive and write a few posts or something! So hopefully there will be something to read tomorrow :)


  1. Hej!
    Jag går på mando å har typ några få kilo kvar att gå upp till min målvikt.. Idag la dietisten på EN TILL näringsdryck på mitt matschema då jag "bara" gått upp typ ett halvt kilo senaste månaden. Jag tycker att det känns jättejobbigt och är superrädd för att min vikt nu ska rusa upp. Min behandlare å dietist säger att den inte kommer att göra det eftersom jag i princip stått still på matschema + 1 näringsdryck i en månad och jag hade inget val annat än att acceptera höjningen... :( Men jag är övertygad om att den extra näringsdrycken kommer att "få bägaren att rinna över" och speeda upp min viktökning totalt. Särskilt eftersom de på mando säger att jag "logiskt sätt borde gå upp i vikt och inte stå still med tanke på mängden mat på mitt matschema". Nu sitter jag här och det är tid för kvällsmål + den andra näringsdrycken för dagen och jag vet inte vad jag ska göra... Jag vill inte ta drycken! :( Jag trivs dessutom mycket bättre på den vikt jag har nu än på min målvikt så motivationen till att gå upp i vikt är därför inte superstor. Min behandlare säger att jag kommer att må bättre och ha färre tankar etc när jag ligger på min målvikt, men jag tror henne inte riktigt... Tar tacksamt emot tips!

    1. Jag har svårt i den senaste inläggen :) hoppas de hjälper men du kan alltid kommentera/mejla om du behöver mer råd :)

  2. I feel the same! I get really sad when my vacations/breaks come to an end but deep down I know I'd be bored to death if there was never any school or work :)

    1. Yes exactly! !! It's like during summer break,the first few weeks are nice but near the end of the break you are almost a little happy to go back to school/work !! :)

  3. May I ask a random question, Izzy?
    How do you drink your coffee? With 'normal' milk/soy milk or any other type? Do you sometimes drink espresso? And how about ice coffee? Okay, enough of coffee...I know. I am just asking because I am slightly lactose intolerant and I try to avoid drinking milk, however I don't really like my coffee with coconut or almond milk. My best option is lactose free milk. Which one of the 'alternate versions' is your favourite? Could you recommend a certain type of non-dairy milk? I know...tastes differ, I just might give that a try...if the type/brand you mention is available here. Thanks :)

    1. I usually drink my coffee black or just with some normal milk. I would suggest using soy milk or lactose free milk in your coffee :) Almond or coconut milk dont really work when the coffee is warm so try one of those options i mentioned :) Otherwise a little bit of normal milk might not do so much damage? But it depends on how lactos intolerant you are. So see if soy or lactose free milk work :) Most coffee places have soya milk as an option and its pretty good.
