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:

New readers?

Hello :)
   Today when i was looking at my blog stats (which surprisingly doesnt happen so often XD) but for some reason by 1pm i already had almost double amount of views than i have in a usual day - and i get several thousand views each day. So i am super confused as to why? There doesnt seem to be a referring link to my blog, so i want to know if you are a new reader, someone who has just found my blog or just passing by - how did you find my blog? :)
  I want to know if someone has linked to my blog or written about me or if a picture or text of mine has appeared somewhere else!!!

But also i wanted to say Hello :) And welcome!!!

If you have any questions it's just to ask i will try my best to help and answer :) Otherwise feel free to check out my FAQ and my 'myself' page to find out more about me, or scroll through my previous posts :)

It would be great to know :) But also, even if you are an everyday or weekly blog reader, feel free to comment and let me know how you found my blog :)

Or even leave some Constructive critisizm, that is always helpful for me to keep improving my blog :) Even if its just a 'please change your background and template im bored of it!!! XD


  1. I keep meaning to ask where this dress is from? It's so nice :)

  2. Hiii :)
    I'm one week in ED recovery and stumbled across your blog while researching on extreme hunger...which seems like the stage im stuck on right now :)..
    Anyway I looooove your blog! I have also started one just recently XD won't be anyyyywhere as good as yours though. Thank you for the motivation, it got me through my first week...:) still a lot more to come, and I just hope i'm prepared. Remission is certainly worth it!


  3. I recently started reading your blog :)
    I am almost weight restored, and its been hard! I started recovery in November and found your blog while looking for recovery info. I love your blog and you are so amazing! I wish I had your confidence! I just want to thank you for giving me hope :)

  4. I find it ironic that there is a weight loss advertisement on your blog (to the left, a bit further down) -__-'

    1. Adds are based on your own searches.

    2. yes, izzy is right, because the ads for me are in French seeing as I live in france, whereas I doubt they are in French for her in Sweden.

  5. I found your blog when i was reading the Irish newspaper the Irish Independent and there was an article about you with a link to your site! Just want to say that you have given me inspiration to recover when i never thought that i would be able to and your blog gives great encouragement and support.
    Thank you,
    G :)

  6. I found your blog a year ago while trying to find more infotmation on eating disorders :)

  7. I read your blog every day :) I found it in may last year (2014) when I was looking up 'help for anorexia recovery' :) thank you so much for your blog izzy!!!

  8. I just found your blog recently when i was searching online about recovery from ed, and I have been reading it since. Thank you for your constant updates and motivation. I am trying to work towards recovery and your posts really gave me (and many many people I believe) loads of strength. I hope I can be like you and recover soon, to be free again :) Recovery is very difficult, especially when the dark thoughts keep coming to fight against your will to recover, so your motivations really helped a lot. Thank you! :)

  9. I used to read your blog years ago when I was in the depths of anorexia. I am still unwell with lots of thoughts and a low weight BUT I am making steps to get better, I am taking charge and trying to increase so I found your blog again as I always found you very strong and inspiring. This is the hardest but most worthwhile thing I will ever do and you blog helps me to stay fighting xx Amy (uk)
