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!

A day of relaxation and time for myself

Hello :)

Its only 4.30pm here in Sweden but this day has been so good so far!! Not in the sense that i have done lots but more that i have free time!! That i dont have to be anywhere at a certain time, instead i can just do whatever i feel like!! I actually had time for a morning walk with Daisy, which was the perfect way to start the day! I am looking forward to walks and runs during my break, when i finally have time i want to spend time in nature as much as i can :) I have also had time to just lie in bed and watch series... i cant remember i have done this in the middle of the day? It feels like weeks ago. Usually i am so busy and during my weekends i have either spent them with A or studying and havent had any free time to just lie in bed in the middle of the day? I cant explain just how nice it feels :) As well as munching on left over candy from yesterday!

I had thought i would be productive today but ive decided to just let myself relax and take it easy today, no 'musts'. No having to check my email, no having to check my school mail or my school documents... just letting all of that go until Monday. Then its a new week, but for now i need this weekend to just spend time resting mentally and to have time to go for walks or runs or spend a while at the gym just because i have the time and not have to rush my workouts!!! Feels good to be on my break :)

Now, however, A is on his way to my place as he is going to eat dinner at my place :)

I hope you all have a lovely day and remmeber, DONT panic about tomorrow if that is when you celebrate Easter. Enjoy the chocolate, enjoy the good food and DONT let that voice in your head control you. Enjoy the holiday and the celebrations, don't let your eating disorder control you for another day and ruin memories! Instead, create good memories and believe that you are stronger than your eating disorder because YOU ARE!


  1. Izzy could you please post some spreads for bread or sandwiches ideas, i have a lack of creativity because i don't like cheese so i don't know how to make those meals more nutritious. It would be greatly appreciated if you help me :)

    1. Yeah I will try make a post about this today!! :)

  2. Been healthy for a year but still a tiny bit of worry for Easter tomorrow. Will enjoy it though. Last year this time, I had just come out of a clinic. A lot can happen in a year. Thanks Izzy fx

    1. Proud of you that you are no longer in hospital!!you can do it!!! Try not to worry too much and think rationally if you get anxiety. ... Some chocolate or different food or more food won't harm you! Everyone else can eat the food and treat themselves to chocolate, so you can as well :)
