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!

Feeling super happy today

Today is one of those days where i just want to smile and laugh. Smile at strangers, share my happiness and i never want this happy feeling to pass!!! It is such a nice feeling to just feel happy, for no particular reason. Just that i am happy, the sun is shining. Its the weekend and life feels pretty good right now! I think this is the result of stress seeping away and 9 hours sleep last night!!  Everything just feels good and this energy and happiness resulted in a really great workout including HIIT which i havent done in a while so it felt good to run fast! I do no more than 10 minutes HIIT at a time and that works well for me, enough to tire me out!
   Then home for lunch (quorn meatballs, potatoe salad, vegetables and kale on the side! Eating kale just as it is has become my new favourite thing, but also kale chips!)

The rest of the day i am not sure how my plans will turn out, but that is kind of nice. I have lots of energy so i am ready for anything!!!  :)

How are you spending your Saturday? How is the weather in your country? 

P.s all emails have been answered, so if you havent gotten a reply from me then resend your email because chances are i have missed it, its gotten deleted or i havent recieved it :)

P.p.s (??) I was thinking about maybe making a vlogg tomorrow... any topic suggestions? :)


  1. I know its something you have touched on before - i think you have talked about both topics. But the problem with comparing yourself to others, i always compare myself to another girl i see in the gym. She makes me feel so sad about myself - she is tiny and like a doll. I am tall, taller than you Izzy so i can never be like her yet i beat myself up about it & she ruins me gym time as i keep looking at her and feeling bad. The other topic is about weight gain and when to buy new clothes? i find it really hard to stop wearing my jeans from my lower weights. Its just an idea for you. Thanks for this blog Izzy - its such a help and you are such an inspiration. If i ever have a daughter i hope she can be as strong and smart as you, even at such a young age.

  2. Hi, I know I tend to only comment when I have something to say about myself, so I'll apologize for that. However, I admit beiing slightly confused as you unfollowed me on ig. I know this isn't serious for real, but I got curious of what the reason was. I changed my name on there, though, I am the one with the pale filtered eye profile picture (I'd rather not tell my ig name here for obvious reasons).
    So, what's up?

    1. Haha ohh well if you email me your IG name I can follow you again. I was sorting through who I was following and deleted people who didn't update or weren't really the type of pictures I look at... so it might have been that you don't update or it might have been an accident ;) don't take it personally!

    2. Well, it is true that I don't update that often, so that might be it! I actually did the same the other day. But I'll send the profile to you anyway, do with it what you prefer :)
